#309850 Maytag Bravos Washer MVWB750WQ0 throws uL at 8 or 9 minutes

Posted by Applianceman97 on 20 December 2014 - 01:05 PM

This machine has a floating basket. You should be able to grab the inside of the inner drum and lift up. The basket should lift up 2-4 inches (just an estimate) and then drop down freely. If the tub will not slide up and down as decrived above then the tub is stuck.

You will need to replace the shaft and bearing kit.

You can use jays cabrio tool to remove the inner basket.

If the basket can move freely, then replace strut kit.

#309655 MAYTAG DRYER MDG8400AWW SENSOR 33002095

You may want to check that part number. It comes up as bracket not a sensor.

#309654 RFG297AAWP Samsung Refrigerator Not Cooling Fridge or Freezer

Posted by Applianceman97 on 16 December 2014 - 02:08 PM

You simply can not add freon to a refrigerator.

The leak must be found and fixed.

Anyone that does sealed system repairs should be able to take care of the problem, as long as they work on Samsungs.

#309516 Interested in starting the classes..

Posted by Applianceman97 on 14 December 2014 - 03:36 PM

Both the all dolly and Master Samurai Tech course will make you money.

What you need to ask yourself is,
How often would I use the all dolly? (I'm guessing 2-3 times a week max)
How often would I use the knowledge from the Master Samurai Course? (Every Day)

It seems like a no brainier. I highly recommend the fundamentals course even for experienced techs. You can always learn more. You also can forget troubleshooting techniques over the years. Even if used as refresher course, it's worth it.

I myself have learned from the course and I have been doing this for 10 years.

Take the course... You won't be disappointed!!!

#309515 Diagnosing and Repairing a Warm Samsung FDBM Refrigerator

Posted by Applianceman97 on 14 December 2014 - 03:13 PM

Plugged defrost condensate drain.

At this point the issue the customer notices is the refrigerator compartment is warm due to the evap fan iced up. The plugged drain makes the moisture circulate through the evaporator and freeze up the fan.

Defrost evap and condensate drain and also install a drain probe.

Oh and be careful removing the evap cover. If you crack the foam when removing, then you have to replace the cover. If you don't replace it after the crack then you will be back again for the same issue of the fan iced up. Except this time it is caused by the cracked evap cover.
(Some techs just automatically replace the cover any time it has to be removed. )

Posted by Applianceman97 on 14 December 2014 - 02:46 PM

As maps said you simply have no choice but to replace the whole assy. The pump motor is not offered as a separate part. I wouldn't waste any more time searching just replace with a Part number: 280187

Part number: 280187

So 2 things. 


1. Is the light turning off when the door is shut? 

2. Has the duck bill been swapped out to a P-trap. (This is more a preventative maint. thing, probably not causing this issue unless someone has removed the duck bill all together. You would probably find more frost than what your seeing if the duck bill was removed)

#309338 Samsung RF267ABRS diagnostic

Posted by Applianceman97 on 11 December 2014 - 03:31 PM

It will go into diagnostic mode even if there are no error codes. Do you have the fast track manual? That's what you want. It states at the top how to enter diagnostic and forced mode. It's just two buttons you hold to enter diagnostic mode. 


Check your defrost condensate drain. When it plugs the fan circulates the moisture and freezes the evaporator up. Also causes the evap fan to stop running.


Also do a search in the downloads section (and forums) about your issue. There are many threads (check service bulletins too) pertaining to this problem.

Posted by Applianceman97 on 10 December 2014 - 09:42 AM

Have you put the washer into diagnostic mode? This where you will retrieve the error codes that have been stored. You can also run automatic and manual test modes.

#309101 Samsung RF4267HAWP temperature sensors not reading correctly

Posted by Applianceman97 on 08 December 2014 - 03:44 PM

He didn't replace the drier when he did the sealed system repair??? Are kidding? That's a big NO NO!

#309078 Whirlpool Cabrio Electric Dryer Model WED6400SW1

Posted by Applianceman97 on 08 December 2014 - 10:14 AM

Before going further with the manual search, will the WED6400SB1 also work for my WED6400SW1?


If it will,  then I have the tech sheet and parts list I need.

This is where the work starts. What you have to do is go to a site where you can do some cross referencing. I use APP. Look up both model numbers and then pick a part that would be a main functioning and unique part. The main board would be a great part to check between the two models. If the main boards are the same then the manual should be compatible.


The APP cross reference tool comes in handy too!

There is a plethora of Cabrio manuals in the downloads section. 


Here is the video to show you how to effectively find them.

An oven does fluctuate temperature.

What are you getting your temperature readings from?

If your reading your temps from one of those thermometers you buy at the grocery store then the problem is most likely the temp gauge.

I would say at least half of my oven calibrations are from those thermometers. People watch them and adjust the temp to what that temp gauge says.
