GE Water Softner GXSF39E Leaking at Inlet Tube

23 May 2011 - 02:56 PM

I have a 11 year old GE whole house water softener model GXSF39E. The unit is dripping water from the Inlet tube. I installed new O-Rings and Clips on both the inlet and outlet tubes yet it still leaks. I used GE parts for both items ( ws03x10025, ws60x10004).

As it still leaked after I put it back together a second time with new o-rings, I also tried adding PVC Joint Compound along with the O-Rings trying to stop the drip but that did not work either.

I'm hoping someone knows a magic trick I'm not doing correctly when reconnecting the unit. I made sure both clips are properly seeded. It looks to me like there should be some type of washer on the inside of the inlet tube on the unit that the Bypass assembly slides into. Otherwise, it's just the plastic tube sliding into another plastic tube.

I'd appreciate any suggestions. I've taken this thing apart 4 times now and it's getting pretty tiring. Thanks

Dryer Not Heating - Whirlpool GGW9250PT3

19 April 2011 - 04:42 PM

The dryer does not heat up. I noticed the Igniter lights for about 4 seconds then click's off.

I have completed the following tests:
Igniter - has continuity, lights for 4 seconds & shuts off.
Flame Sensor - has continuity
High Limit Thermostat - has continuity
Thermal fuse - has continuity
Diagnostic Test Mode - no errors showed, all lights lit on control panel
Thermistor - completed test per tech manual & no error codes showed. Did resistance tests and I didn't get any readings on my digital meter. Replaced the Thermistor. Still no heat. Note: The new thermistor also showed no continuity when I tested it before I installed it. Is this normal?
Coils - resistance tests showed a little above specs on the 3 prong coil (1430 vs. 1365) so I replaced them both. Still no heat.

So, after replacing the coils and thermistor I have the same problem. The machine starts fine and the ignitor lights for about 4 seconds and shuts off. Any suggestions on what else can I test? I don't want to call a repair man. thanks
