A Haier Dryer, Yes, Ma'am, I'm sorry we don't work on small appliances.

Pays the same as large appliances & others don't do them.   I go where the money is  :wink:   Not difficult at all.

I believe you would get a better response in the kitchen forum rather than this manual request forum

When you least expect it, you're elected, it's your lucky day Try to help & BAM   you're attacked by killer,ungrateful posts of gratitude.    Damn sure don't want her to be my nurse for fear of trying to help,  I'll get attacked for not replying correctly in her eyes.    I think the problem is her refrigerator just does not like her.   Good move Samurai.   Luv my Appliantology & all brothers who try to help.   :thanks:

Thankyou Baby Sensei,  I th ought it was the same.   The model still does not show that it is compatible & MD# does not show up as good number.   Ordering a few of those Jazz Boards today.   Thank you.

Kurt can jam & sing as well as give great technical advice.    Durham can pencil in a tune no doubt along with his many other talents.   Got to get him some Blue Bell Rocky Rocky Road,   The both are enjoyable to Vox with, look forward to the chit chats everyday along with all the other fellow  chatty Brethren Voxers.   :rocker:  :rocker:  :dazzler:  :dazzler:

#292806 Maytag washer MVWB450WQ1

Posted by Patricio on 06 May 2014 - 11:21 AM

Did not have a tech sheet in cabinet 1st time out.   He told me over phone 'SD'  my notes from last month was "LD"   I think I used another vertical washer's book for diagnostic.   My memory was foggy when I posted, but it is coming back to me now.   I will check my downloads.   I was thinking the unit was a front load, I have done a few maytag FL lately.  Had a diabetes brain fart.   I apologize, should not have had that Blue Bell last night.   :rolleyes:

#291692 Admiral spin cycle sounds like jet engine - LNC6760B71

Posted by Patricio on 24 April 2014 - 10:47 PM

:thumbsup: I concur with elec_Doc about the pump bearing being bad,  replaced a few that sounded the same.   Don't have to take front off though to access.   I would lean washer back, put something like a paint can to rest washer on.    You can access the belt from below, comes off easy.   Spin pump pulley should be able to fill the bad when spun by hand.     Check for belt droppings also (black debri)   If pump is bad which I believe it can lock up on you possible cause collateral damage.     I always install a new belt with my repair.   :yes:

#291514 Kenmore 417.97822701 dryer won't heat

Posted by Patricio on 23 April 2014 - 10:01 AM

Digital multimeters that do basic stuff are very cheap to purchase,  Walmart. Lowes, Home Depot, etc.   Research here on appliantology how to use one so you don't hurt yourself,  220 voltage is very dangerous if approached not knowing safety techniques.


Electro_Doc gives good advice, check for correct  voltage at receptacle.   One more thing are you sure you have the correct double breaker for the dryer.  Should be a 30 amp double.    I say this because I went on a call that a customer was adamant that the breaker was the correct one.   Turned out he was checking the water heater breaker & was not happy with a service call fee.   The dryer breaker had one leg tripped & was not that visible to the untrained eye. 

#290856 GE Fridge Model GSS25LGMB Noise

Posted by Patricio on 15 April 2014 - 09:34 AM

Pull the back panel & do evaluation of frost pattern.   If iced over, defrost with steamer or hair dryer,   No, a heat gun is not a good idea, it can melt the plastic liner when you least expect it.   I have used a sprayer with warm water, just be sure to have a method of sopping up the excess water, ie. towels, wet vac.

#290093 Kenmore FL washer F6 error code

Posted by Patricio on 06 April 2014 - 07:30 PM

Look for 120 volts between the two pink wires at the MCU ... and check for 5 volts DC between the two outside blue wires on the MCU.  Also check the wire harness between the MCU and the motor ... if all test good, then it looks like a MCU to me.  

2 weeks later with MCU in hand, I swap them out & fire up machine in a drain & spin mode.  Then put into a diagnostic mode.  Ran just fine as if nothing was ever wrong.  Final test run a normal cycle with a heavy load of jeans.  Happy, happy, Lady.     Oh and i sold a surge protector recommended by the big one.   Happy, happy Patricio.   An Appliantology Sensei repair & a Blue Book compensation.   I love my job.     :thanks:
