Whirlpool Verticle modular washer WTW4820XQ0

28 February 2015 - 11:05 AM

 Have a customer that claims this washer overflows intermittently. The washer has a separate pressure switch which I checked out ok. Also the pressure hose does not have any leaks. While on site I checked out the pressure switch settings of small, medium, and large loads, all of which were good. The water valves were also not leaking. Has anyone had a similar problem and found a component that would cause this.

Have a customer that claims the this washer intermittently overflows.  This washer has a separate Pressure switch which I check out ok and the pressure hose does not have any leaks. While on site I tested the small medium and large load fills and they all worked fine.  The water valves are tested and do not leak. Has any one had a similar problem and found the component which may be causing this.




GE gas Convection oven JGB915CEF3CC

22 February 2015 - 10:13 PM

I have a customer that said that her convection fan didn't work on her GE range.  I come to find out that when the control was on Convection Bake the fan was on the LO speed and on Convection Roast the fan would go into HIGH speed.  She claims that the fan would also work on HIGH speed when Convection Bake was pushed in. I can't seem to find any info about convection fan speed in the user manual or the specks. I checked the fan windings and the read 20 ohms for the lo speed and 26 ohms for the high speed. The schematic says that P103 pin 6 is for (fan HI) and pin 4 is for (fan LO) but the printed circuit board indicates the opposite. Is this woman dreaming or can you point me in the right direction to troubleshoot this. Should the fan speed be HIGH for both convection bake and convection roast or should they be different? Does the ERC have a problem and should be replaced? I hate throwing parts at a problem.




Whirlpool dryer stops running

08 May 2014 - 01:10 PM

I have a whirlpool dryer that intermittantly stops running a few minutes after starting. (GGW9878PW1)

I have read about the thermal overload in the motor but it starts right up again after it shuts down. I have checked for bad spots in the timer but this happens no matter where the timer starts from. Vents are clean and air flow is good. Could any of the thermostats cause this? Need some expert advice.





Frigidiare Top loader won't spin

20 March 2014 - 09:54 AM

I have a Frigidiare top loader that fills , agitates but stops and won't spin (FWS1233FS1) . I've done some research and other then the obvious lid switch the service manual claims if I can't move the motor pulley it could be the tub bearing of sometimes called the spin bearing.  If I attempt to replace this bearing what am I looking for on the old bearing that tells me it's bad? Is there anything else that may need to be replaced with the bearing to prevent leakage?
