Top Loader WP WTW5700SW0 water temps erratic

09 October 2014 - 08:10 PM

Hello all again... I am working on my friend's washer (Whirlpool) and it wants to act funny. You set the temp for incoming water and it does what it wants to do. Sometimes, hot is cold,  and sometimes it acts normal. Are we looking at a temp control? What is your experience?


Thanks in advance for your help.





Kitchen Aid dishwasher (KUDE03FTSS1) verrrrrrrry slow drain

02 May 2014 - 11:00 AM

Good morning ladies and gentlemen,


I am once again upon a head scratcher that has me bewildered. (like that word?)


I have a customer with a KA dishwasher that wont drain completely.


What has been done:


1. Drain pump replaced.

2. Drain line snaked out (clear)

3. Air gap checked and cleared

4. Sump area cleared

5. old pump was a 4 "vane" impeller... new one had an 8 "vane" impeller


Still slow ... Is the control board controlling the speed (or lack thereof) to the pump?


Thank you in advance for all your help.

Kenmore 110.88752796 Replaced transmission now spin is STRANGE!

23 April 2014 - 08:13 PM

OK So I have this stack washer (direct drive) that was just grinding, Yellow oil all over the floor and dripping oil. I replaced the transmission, YAYYYYYY!!! Agitate works... go into spin and it is pumping out yet the transmission is not basket is not engaging... HOWEVER (and this is the weird part) when you open the lid and then close it, THEN it spins fine.


Clutch? Basket Drive?


And why would it not engage after shifting into spin yet, opening and closing the lid will engage?

GE SxS GSS25LGMBCC mold in dispenser

26 August 2013 - 07:20 PM

I have a customer who has a 10+ year old GE refrigerator. Previous service company found a solenoid dispenser rusted stuck. Replaced it to the tune of $460.00 (I know... OUCH!.. I almost cried for her) So now there is a bit of condensation and mold up in the area where the dispenser door is. I laser temped the area and the ambient was about 73*F and the dispenser was at 61*F on the left and 55*F on the right of the disp door.


When the previous service company was called back, she was told it was "GE Door Disease" WTH? Never heard of it.


I am begrudgingly thinking we may have saturated insulation causing the mold. What says the hive?


Thank you for your time



Here is the pic of condensation and mold



Samsung WF220ANW/XAA01 Wont drain

14 November 2012 - 10:49 PM

Greetings and Salutations:

My next door neighbor came a knockin' asking if I would look at his washing machine. I went on over and even though I swore not to ever work on another front loading washer, what do I see in front of me? A Samsung WF220ANW/XAA01 that sounds like the pump is seized up. (hums... maybe it doesn't know the lyrics)

Do any of you that have experience on this machine know if it is common to have the pump lock up on it. And it there a PDF for the service manual on this? I hate digging into a machine where I look like I dont know where to begin.

Thank you in advance
