GE Washer WCSR4170G1WW poor was quality

29 August 2014 - 09:55 PM

Lately this machine has been doing a poor job washing. It seems like when it comes time to agitate, it moves very slowly, is loud and clunky, something is definitely wrong. The entire drum seems to loose. Not familiar with how this works but working to figure out. Thanks in advance- I am ready to figure this one out too

DBXR463EG1WW Dryer Wont Start- switch stuck

29 August 2014 - 06:31 PM

So our DBXR463EG1WW dryer wouldn't start today. Wife twisted the start switch so much it pushed in and fell behind the bezel. I said no problem, pulled the cover reinstalled the switch, still no start. I checked the switch with am ohm meter and noticed it is sticking closed aka continuous when it supposed to be momentary. It has three wires, I jumped them together still no start. Everything was working fine two days ago now im scratching my head. Yes I have 220 coming into the machine but that and the switch is all ive checked so far.

What to do next O'gurus of appliantology? If overload or relay please me tin where located..... Thanks
Meant to say, if overload or something else, tell me where it it located....typo

Chest Freezer Stop Working. Kenmore 198.8183580. - help toubleshooting

27 July 2013 - 11:27 AM

My trusty old Kenmore chest freezer stop cooling suddenly when my kid left the door ajar. I unplugged for a week and it wont turn back on. I hear a faint hum when I plug it in so i removed the access panel and see the compressor, start relay, and a capacitor. pretty simple layout.

how do i go about testing these parts? ohm/volt meter in hand. thanks.

microwave died. ge jvm1860s d001

09 January 2013 - 01:02 PM

Okay this is my fault I was reheating some fast food and did not realize the sandwich was wrapped in foil paper. It looks like the microwave completed the reheat cycle and died. yes it sparked and there a small amount of black smoke inside the unit. there is no power to the unit but I do have power coming out of the wall. no lights or lcd on microwave. I took the control panel off the front and remove the small white ceramic fuse and verified that it is good it has continuity so it's not the fuse.

whats next to check.... thanks

Hot Refrigerator Freezer Help Hot Point model htm18gcsarsa

03 August 2012 - 05:49 PM

hi folks just arrived at our beachhouse after not being here a week and refrigerator is hot food and food spolied. boo... now that I got it all cleaned up I started troubleshooting....

Condenser evaporator fans are running, Compressor is not kicking on and was hot to the touch.
I am getting 120 V to the compresser
I pulled the start unit and can't really tell if it works not but it certainly does not rattle.
I'm thinking to check the thermostat but not sure how or maybe you gurus can point me in right direction.

is there a way to manually start the compressor while I wait for a start unit assembly?

please help

thank you in advance
