#301960 GE GTDP180GD0WW won't stay on

Posted by fairbank56 on 27 August 2014 - 01:07 PM

  It's not really all that difficult. See video-

 

$10 vs $225 repair or $600 replacement. If your willing to throw $600 into it, why not spend $10 and give it a shot first?

#301949 GE GTDP180GD0WW won't stay on

Posted by fairbank56 on 27 August 2014 - 09:18 AM

  Probably the belt switch. Check continuity on it or jump it out. Could be the motor switch. That switch disconnects the start winding after motor is running and then applies power continuously to the run winding via the belt switch.

Disregard the video associated with this part as it does not apply.

  Clean the moisture sensing bars in the drum and the area between them. If they are shorting out due to gunk buildup, the timer will not advance. If it still won't work, disconnect wiring to sensor bars and try auto dry again. If timer still does not advance, replace circuit board inside control panel.

#301669 roper red4640yq1 dryer will not start (details in post)

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 August 2014 - 07:59 PM

  Why are you starting a new thread, you already posted about this dryer. When dryer was running before but timer was not advancing, was that in auto dry cycle or timed dry? If it won't advance in auto dry but does in timed dry, either the operating thermostat is not cycling or the heater coil is grounded (assuming you do have heat at all). As to why it won't operate at all now? Maybe you got a bad timer or got something hooked up wrong. Check for power to the dryer, double check the thermal fuse.

#301624 Maytag Bravos Washer MVWX500XW2 bearing issue

#301620 Maytag Bravos Washer MVWX500XW2 bearing issue

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 August 2014 - 08:30 AM

  New transmission, $213 (APP price), new bearing and some screws, less than $20. The difference in labor is drilling out the top half of the housing, replacing the bearing in that top half and screwing it back together. Takes about 1/2 an hour. Your not actually into the gearcase. The gearcase where the planetary gear set is located is sandwiched between the to halves of the outer metal housing and doesn't need to be opened. Definitely worthwhile for an experienced DIY'er to attempt. Up to you as an appliance tech if you want to do this sort of thing. This is a relatively common problem with these VMW's. The tub seal leaks and the water goes directly into that top bearing. The water does not get into the gearcase.

Posted by fairbank56 on 21 August 2014 - 07:05 AM

  Don't give up so easily. Spanner wrench is only $16. Drive block is $15. Problem may be something else entirely but this is far less than what you will pay to call in a pro. Drive block can be returned if that isn't the problem. I suppose you could return the wrench as well but you might want to keep it anyway.

#301441 Maytag Bravos Washer MVWX500XW2 bearing issue

Posted by fairbank56 on 20 August 2014 - 09:04 AM

  This is a VMW washer, not a Fisher/Paykel direct drive design. The upper bearing can be replaced in the VMW but I am not aware of any video's on it. You must remove the transmission from the washer and drill out the rivets to separate the two halves of the outer transmission housing. Then knock the old top bearing out and install a new one. Use self tapping screws or bolts/nuts to secure the outer transmission housing back together.

#301269 ge profile washer wcse4160b1cc does not know hot or cold

Posted by fairbank56 on 18 August 2014 - 09:57 AM

  Too many brands and models to make that claim but it is typical for GE toploaders of the era of your machine with control boards.

Posted by fairbank56 on 18 August 2014 - 07:37 AM

  The only way the heater coil can be powered with door open (motor off) is if the motor heat circuit switch is stuck closed, the wire between the heater coil terminal and motor connector is shorted to ground or the heat coil is touching ground.

#301124 timer rebuild for roper red4640yq1

Posted by fairbank56 on 16 August 2014 - 12:58 PM

  Better to replace. These timers used on low end Whirlpool models (roper, estate...etc.) are junk. A very similar one is used on their low end dryers. They fail often. We don't try to fix them. Buy one from APP and you at least have a one year warranty on it.

#300933 Kenmore 80 Series Model 110.28822790

Posted by fairbank56 on 13 August 2014 - 10:08 AM

  Probably needs a new clutch. This is a direct drive machine, no belts. Check the inside of the cabinet a few inches above the floor. If you see a line of oil there, you should replace the transmission cover shaft seal as oil can get into the clutch housing causing it to slip and not spin fast enough.

#299954 Kenmore Dryer 11086671100 - Heating Element stays on

Posted by fairbank56 on 30 July 2014 - 07:53 AM

  Could be that the motor switch for the heat circuit is stuck closed. Unplug motor connector. If problem goes away, you would need to replace the motor. This is an important safety device to kill the heat if motor quits running while dryer is heating.

  You say it always happens at same spot during cool down. That's only in the permanent press cycle? Sounds like a timer problem to me.
