Kirkland (Whirlpool) SGDX600HQ0 Low/Inconsistent Heat, Auto Dry Doesn't Advance

01 November 2014 - 04:51 PM

A few weeks ago the wife said the dryer would no longer work in the Automatic Dry mode so she was using Timed Dry.  Now even in Timed Dry it is taking a long time to dry a load.   Sometimes we open it and there is no heat at all.


One year ago I replaced the thermal fuse, cleaned out the vent tube inside the dryer, and put a new vent line in.  Just checked that, it was all pretty good.


Research shows it could be the Cycling Thermostat or the Valve Coils. They are pretty cheap, should I just replace those, or are there any steps I should take first to rule out something else?


Thanks as always.

Maytag HAV2557AWW Washer - Grinding Noise

22 September 2011 - 01:21 PM


Within the last week my HAV2557AWW washer started to make some noise, although it seems over the last year the balance was getting worse and worse with towels. As far as the noise, at first it was just a little when it ramped up during the spin cycle. I was hoping for something simple like the Snubber and springs. However today it started making noise while just agitating as well as the spin. I have attached two videos below (hopefully) of the noise during the spin cycle.

Spin Cylce:
Agitate Cycle:

It could be that I neglected the out of balance thing for so long that I ruined something else. If it is the transmission it seems the cost, time, and tools required make find a working used washer on Craigslist a better use of money. True?
