MD# YMEDB850WQ0 Bravos Dryer leaves clothes damp

14 January 2015 - 01:18 PM



Another machine received on trade in. It leaves the clothes damp on any cycle that uses the sensor. I can't locate online or elsewhere a service manual for this so have nowhere to start. I have done all the usual cleaning out, testing for obstructions etc. but still same problem. The board here in Canada is $216.00 so can't really go that route or it will end up being a scrapper.

Anyone familiar with this issue?

Gas Stove JGBP86WEA2WW. FLlame too high?

04 January 2015 - 12:44 PM

This is kind of a problem no problem issue. I got this Gas stove in a trade in for a washer. Customer said house came with it and it supposedly works perfectly except wife doesn't like how fast the oven heats up. I don't have the equipment in my shop to properly test it. I use a propane tank with adapters to test everything. It's not perfect but has worked well so far "with dryers at least"

So this being a gas stove and me testing it with propane might simply be that what I see is only an incorrect gas issue.


So, What I get is. It all seems to work well by way of the controls but watching the bake flame in the oven it is quite high. It comes about 3" above the edge of the bottom plate. Or to say a different way. A customer would see the flame at the sides of the oven of about 3" into the oven cavity. (pretty sure one should not see the flame, Lol)


I've run some other ranges on propane and have not seen this issue.


Is this simply the propane or is it an indication of too much gas? I'd hate to try to adjust (if possible) the flame down only to find that it was only a propane issue.


Anyone have the experience to answer this question?

D/D Tranny knocking "What Part needed" ?

29 April 2014 - 11:29 AM

I have been running into this for too long now. I test a top load whirlpool style washer and often get the loud knocking noise from the transmission during agitate. As the transmission is too expensive too replace and resell the machine for a reasonable profit I end up scrapping it out.


I do have the time to putter around and rebuild the tranny myself BUT what part is it that actually causes the knocking. They are a pretty simple unit and many of the parts are available but again too expensive too try just replacing parts as a test or learning experience. I don't believe it's a combination of many parts worn out. I think it's one part that really causes the problem I just don't know which one and I'm sure someone has figured it out ahead of me.


So I ask if anyone has gotten into the innards of these transmissions and knows for sure which part it is that is causing this way too common problem. I'm tired of scrapping these things out.

cross reference help needed MD# 592-491080

31 March 2014 - 05:49 PM

So after spending several hours searching the elusive Kenmore cross reference and a lot of WTFs along the way. I realized I will need to ask for help from others who may have that magical knowledge and skill to be able to cross reference Kenmore parts.


This is a Kenmore Front load washer. (I believe it's actually Samsung made) I've been noticing lately that the Spider (or tub support) is becoming available as a seperate part for many front load washers so I'm hoping for this machine also.

Along with that model number I get as far as these Samsung parts. Possibly Part number....

DC97-12222A at Part number: AP4213004

Part number: AP4213004


DC97-14875A at Part number: AP4342274

Part number: AP4342274

BOTH of those look exactly the same as the broken assy I need to replace. I don't want to just go and blindly order one of these. (cheaper one of course) only to find that it is in fact NOT the same.

So any help would be appreciated. Maybe this could even help others.

MVWX700XW1 Maytag. Not enough water

25 March 2014 - 03:17 PM

This is the first of these I've had in my shop. It has no error codes, runs nice a quiet BUT it just doesn't fill enough. I've read that some customers say these washers appear to not have very much water but the one I have is REALLY low. That can't be right! I'm asking if this may be normal for these machines or is it a problem and is it a fixable problem?


A regular laundry basket sized load is left probably 2/3 above the water level during the wash cycle. (after the machine senses how much water the load needs) The clothes just seem to get all twisted rather than washing and the tops layer of clothes are left not really being washed at all. Other brands but similar machines I've had seem to fill to a level of a couple inches of water above the clothes while this machine only fills to aprox a few inches of water in total.


Anyone familier with these?
