Last six weeks, water has been accumulating inside the bottom drawer (right side) as well as in the inside bottom of the unit.

Thank you


Bosch Dishwasher Model #SHU43C06UC/17

14 August 2014 - 02:52 PM

Owner states that this 6 or so year old dishwasher had been performing satisfactorily until this morning when it was turned on but no water entered the machine. Is there a way to test if it's a defective water inlet valve? Any other suggestions?



Frigidaire Washer #GLTF1670ASO Loud, Violent Banging when the tub spins

13 May 2014 - 08:09 AM

Very violent banging when tumbling. I removed the front & back panel and "tested" the shocks and they seem intact. The spring suspension system  also seems intact. There is evidence of the tub having hit both sides of the cabinet, however I don't know if the marks are from this episode or damage from a previous time when both shocks were broken and the tub gyrated enough to smash the soap dispenser. I don't want to go through that repair again!

I rotated the tub, from the back, by hand, and notice quite a loud clunking while the tub turned, I have attached a sound file of the clunking that I heard while a spun the tub. During the wash cycle, when this violent banging was first witnessed, I notice a heretofor unnoticed slight "squeak" as the tub spun...prior to the beginning of the banging.


Kenmore Electric Dryer Mod #110-67522600 "Won't turn on!"

07 May 2014 - 07:59 PM

The original owner of this 6 year old Kenmore 500 series electric dryer reports that the dryer abruptly stopped "turning on". No warning. Out of the blue. They report that the light comes on inside of the dryer when they open the door so are assuming that the appliance is getting power. When asked, they report that they have never had the vent cleaned. 




Jenn-Air Refrigerator Mod #12830912 ice maker slowly stopped making ice

27 March 2014 - 01:18 PM

Owner reports that the indoor ice maker started to fail by the ice cubes getting "hung up" in the "tray" the owner could reach in and "jingle" the cube loose and pull it down. The unit eventually just stopped making ice altogether. The indoor water dispenser works. Does the fact that it slowly failed to, first eject the ice and then completly stopping making ice suggest a particular problem? Does this Jenn-Air product use the Whirlpool Modual ice maker? If water is coming into the ID water dispenser does that mean the supply is working for the ice maker?

Thanks for your help.
