In Topic: Whirlpool icemaker stinks, literally

sorry Patricio, for missing this one.

 

Have this problem when you run into old lines. or ones that are not used often & far away from main supply. even on 3 year old homes.

I have devised a fitting with  plastic tubbing, & flush that line for about 5 min.

1 to 3 five gallon buckets will not be enough.

After i did that (customer had other service companies out that failed) he was so happy he put a great review on google.

 

He originally rejected the idea because he had tried himself to do that.

Its the volume like 20-50 gallons at least.

I have used single screw type wire connectors, before with a dab of electrical anti oxidizer, used it on all OLD wax coated wiring & contacts.


In Topic: MGDC200XW0 Why is this Whirlpool/Maytag Dryer blowing the Thermal Cut-Out kit?

31 December 2013 - 09:35 AM

make sure seals are good, (foam around manifold to blower or the filter housing) .

    I also use a whirlpool airflow meter to test the customers vent, definitely an air flow problem, either the dryer or the vent hose in the wall.

They may need to call a vent cleaning company, I always check air flow when it comes to burnt thermal fuse, saves me recalls, absolves me from "you did not fix it right, doing same thing".

    I show them the meter & tell them there is no warranty if they do not call to clean it.
