#269835 Samsung Washer WF206BNWXAA not spinning or pumping all water out.

Posted by aasnowskate on 01 October 2013 - 02:14 PM

I went back out to the customer's house today and there was water still in the tub from the last wash.  I took the back panel off and hooked the pump up with a patch cord and ran it.  The water was running out really slowly, but steadily.  After about 5 minutes, the tub was compeletly drained.  I took the pump out, ran it with nothing attached to it and it was fine.  Took off the hose coming from the tub to the pump and it was clean.  I spun the tub and there was nothing in it to be restricting the water flow to the pump. 

Then I decided to inspect the drain hose which is suspended for the high loop and then connected to another hose using two worm gear clamps with a male fitting in the hoses so it can reach the sump pump in the basement.  I took the clamps loose and pulled the male fitting out and there was a dime.  The male fitting in there was just a tiny bit smaller than the diameter of the dime. 

I cleaned all that up and put it all back together,  filled the tub with water and it pumped water out like a firehose.  I put some towles in and put it into spin only and it worked great. 

Moral of the story is to check everything before drawing a conclusion.

Lesson learned... Hopefully.

#250513 Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator Ice Makers don't work

Posted by aasnowskate on 20 March 2013 - 08:30 AM

Did you check the seal of the freezer door?  That bottom mount freezer door can be reinstalled wrong if they had to remove it to bring it into the house.  If if is not sealing properly, the freezer will be loosing cold air and the sensors will detect that it is not cold enough. If it is not cold enough, it will not make ice.  The evaporator in the upper ice maker is all part of the system that is in the freezer.  There is not two compressors.  On the display, the warmest that the freezer will go is 6 or 7 degrees.  If you are getting 10 to 12, it may not be cold enough.  That upper ice maker has many problems.  They have discontinued that ice maker.    You can put the ice maker into a diognostics mode to see exactly what is wrong with it.  I don't have the service manual uploaded, but I have it in paper form.  Maybe someone out there has it to be downloaded?

#249540 Frigidaire oven thermostat

Posted by aasnowskate on 05 March 2013 - 10:16 AM

I recently went out on a call to fix a Frigidaire double oven that would not bake. M# FPET3085KF.  I figured it was the bake element. There were no error codes, the broil element worked. Took the oven all apart to check the bake element, which can be checked from the front only to find out the bake element had continuity through it.  I did not have current going to the element.  Everything on the board and key pad checked out fine, but did not have a reading through the bake element from the board.  I then pulled the double oven out of the wall to find out the resetable thermostat had popped.  There is a red button on the thermostat that needs pushed back in.  The customer had recently put the unit into self clean.  I guess being a built in unit caused the heat to get too high and popped that thermostat. 

This can be checked from the board.

The bad thing is: the only way to reset this thermostat is to pull the oven out of the wall and take the back off to get to the thermostat.

I am posting this to let others know to check this before ordering a very expensive bake element. 

I hope this helps some others.

#243283 Sears 110.28892790 Washer Not Spinning - Jackhammer Sound

Have you checked the coupling? Part # 285753A. That motor is direct drive, not belt driven. Those couplings break. It is an easy fix. You only need a few tools. It still pumps when the coupling is broken, which makes it nice because you don't have a tub full of water.
