Kenmore FL Washer 110.42922200

Parts suppliers only list the Drain pump assembly ($130+) for this whirlpool made antique.  Can any one show me how to cross reference a pump only.   I do not see the need to replace the whole assembly, since it does not wear out, lose its function, come with drain hoses etc.    A little overkill on parts replacement I would say.

Bosch dishwasher SHE43F15UC-60

have this Bosch DW that the motor hums some of the time.  Circulation motor has a 35 mF capacitor which meters out to OL on two different meters.   Problem is the capacitor is not listed as a seperate part, only comes with a new circulation motor at the tune of $200.


Has anyone changed out the capacitor before seems other than having a mounting problem I should be able to use another capacitor with the same rating.


If a new main pump is required I would think the with the extremely labor involved to change it out along with the cost of the pump that would price the repair out of the park, I would suggest a new machine.

Samsung Dishwasher DMT400RHS/XAA

Having a problem with this unit. 14 months ago I replaced the case assembly & case brake.     Now I am having a drain issue of sorts.    The unit will run a cycle or two then shut down with the delicate light blinking indicating a drain failure.   I checked the drain line for blockage, the case brake is clear.


I reapplied power to unit & initiated a cycle, let it fill & agitate, then cancelled the cycle forcing it to drain.  The drainage seemed weak so I replaced pump.   Let it run a cycle all was well although drain pressure still seemed weak.


Client used DW for a couple of loads & unit shut down in middle of cycle with delicate cycle blinking..   I made another call reset power, unit worked OK.  Filled washer & let run then forced drain several times,, unit drained all water (slowly).   Checked voltage & voltage drop  it was OK.  Left home  Client washed a load it completed cycle..  The next load did not fair so well.   Blinking delicate light before cycle was complete.


Fast tract says problem possibility could be drain pump (new), water level sensor ( I believe is in the case assembly)  or the main PBA  ( the unit working in a cycle or two tends to eliminate this).


Any other tech have this problem or can offer possible solutions.   Thank you  I await replies.
