Kenmore 106.58585892 refrigerator water dispenser drips

20 June 2012 - 12:55 PM

The water dispenser almost continuously drips water. I've tried running a gallon or so through to clear any possible air in the system, but that only stops the drips for a couple hours at most. No motors or anything is running when it is dripping.

Is the solution to replace the water inlet valve? If so, which of these parts do I need? http://www.repaircli...lve-Float-Parts

Thanks for the help!

Kenmore 106.58585892 refrigerator fine, but freezer too warm

01 April 2012 - 07:55 PM

Over the course of the past week, there has been 3 non-consecutive mornings where we find the freezer food almost entirely defrosted with the thermometer reading at about 32 degrees (F). This morning was one of those mornings even though yesterday the thermometer was reading below 15 degrees F throughout the day.

I found the Warm Refrigerator Troubleshooting Flowchart...

- The evaporator fan is running.
- I disassembled the freezer to get eyeballs on the evaporator coil.
- It was bare.
- After 30 minutes with the evaporator fan running, there was a little bit of frost on it. According to the flowchart, I should buy a new fridge. But I figure if it started from bare coils, having a little bit of frost is good especially since it has even more after an hour or so.
- Checked the air diffuser assembly by adjusting the air balance control. I noticed the changes one would expect, so it doesn’t seem that is an issue.

So now I’m starting to think the problem is me. I understand how to adjust the thermostat and air balance controls (very small changes & wait 24 hours before adjusting again). Maybe I’m not as good as following those directions as I think I am... or is there a different problem with the fridge that I should investigate next?

Thanks for the help!


Whirlpool dishwasher GU980SCGB2

09 July 2011 - 05:34 PM

My Whirlpool dishwasher GU980SCGB2 leaks a little bit of water as it starts up. Specifically, I start the dishwasher, water fills the tub, and then right when it begins to wash, a small amount of water jets out of the pump motor assembly underneath the dishwasher. The gaskets that I can get to easily inside the dishwasher tub appear to be fine. So, I suspect some gasket underneath the dishwasher is failing or perhaps I need a new pump motor assembly. I do know that it jets out between where the large flat-ish metal meets the underside of the white plastic tub. I don't know how else to determine the precise location the water jets out.

I don't know if this water jets out at other points during the cycle. I do know that it does not jet out if I open the door mid-cycle and then close the door again. I've only seen the jet of water right when it begins the wash cycle after the water fills.
