#319502 More Disabled Veteran Woes. WhirlMore 110.22842100

Posted by MicaBay on 09 May 2015 - 10:18 AM

IF you had to put a motor and transmission in this machine, chances are it would still last longer than buying a brand new top load whirlpool....  Also, I wouldn't skip a beat to put a used motor or trans in this machine.  Yes new is going to last longer and be more better, but both the motor and  the trans are not a high failure rate item on these machine.  (thou they can and will fail.)

#319296 Kenmore elite he3 dryer cord/plug incompatibility

Posted by MicaBay on 06 May 2015 - 08:42 AM

The 2 green wires should go together, also the wires should go thru the whole with a strain releife

Wrong.  You do not connect the Neutral and Ground on a 4 wire cord.  On older machines, the equipment bonding jumper is green colored.  Follow that green wire back 6 inches and you will find it is connected directly to Neutral.  Green does not equal an automatic ground.  http://i1316.photobu...zpsqlaqh9fv.jpg

The manufactures figured MOST people had 3 wire plugs in their homes, so lets set the dryer up so MOST dryers would be 3 cord ready, by making that little section of Neutral green.  As time goes on, manufactures switched that EBJ to white, easier set up for less confusion in the future were more homes are 4 cord ready.




That little green/white wire is/does the same exact job as the ground strap.  Only difference, it won't grow legs and walk a way if not needed for a 4 wire set up.


I find it funny how two different Manufactures proved instructions with a sticker picture on the area of the terminal block, yet these machines are still hooked up incorrectly.



From NEMA's National Electric Code

NEC 250.140

Frames of ranges and clothes dryers must be grounded by connection to an equipment grounding conductor.

The exception to Section 250.140 applies to existing branch circuits that were installed under previous editions of the NEC.  The exception permits use of the grounded circuit conductor (the neutral conductor) to be used to ground the frames of ranges, counter-mounted cooking units, wall-mounted ovens, clothes dryers, and associated outlets or junction boxes provided the installation complies with the following requirements:

  1. The equipment is supplied by a 120/240-volt, 3-wire system or a 208/120-volt, 3-phase, 4-wire branch circuit.
  2. The minimum size grounded branch circuit conductor is not smaller than a No. 10 AWG copper or a No. 8 AWG aluminum.
  3. The grounded conductor is insulated unless it is an uninsulated conductor in a SE cable terminated in the service equipment.
  4. Any grounding contacts in receptacles integral to the equipment are bonded to the equipment frame

What is the Temp of the freezer? Rule number one of working on any refrigerator, Know thy Temp!  Also, for me, diagnosing a bad part which you installed is one of the hardest things to do.

Been there done that, got the T-shirt to prove it. Make sure you can get the basket off the shaft before you be ordering parts.  May need the basket too... but these here are the parts we needed and used the one time we did this job  Part number: wh01x10618

GE tells you to change them when they are the old style with the grey epoxy.  Good practice, weather the symptoms call for it or not.

#318622 Nd code Samsung WF330ANW/XAA - won't drain, motor hums

1. First I've seen you can get this as an assembly! Did you install the whole assembly or just the drain pump motor?Part number: AP4202690

Part number: AP4202690


Did you buy from a reputable sources?  As in a source that resales used pumps?


 2.  That plastic 90* Elbow is where I have seen 100% of coin blockages on these Samsungs.  


Can you suck the water out of the end of the drain hose with a wet vac? No?  Blockage of some sort.

Is your machine heating at all?  if yes, look at your dryer venting for airflow blockage.

Follow the instructions in the video. They are there to protect your life.  Not having the equipment bonding conductor hooked up correctly can and will give you the shock of a lifetime.

#318544 Nd code Samsung WF330ANW/XAA - won't drain, motor hums

Posted by MicaBay on 24 April 2015 - 08:26 AM

1. Chances are the pump has failed.  2.  These pumps aren't that strong to begin with.  3.  Using a shop vac on the end of the drain hose, does water freely drain out?  If not, you need to take the rest of the drain hoses apart and look for blockage.  Most likely at the 90* elbow that the sump hose is attached to (the one touching the tub)

#317350 GE Range JBP84SK1SS Bake Function Not getting Hot Enough

Posted by MicaBay on 08 April 2015 - 09:09 PM

Yes, Usually in preheat the convection fan runs (in convection mode). In preheat for the regular bake it should not.

. I'm not sure on this specific model but there are gE ranges/oven that will use the convection during the preheat, even on normal non-convection bake. They usually cycle between broil, convection and bake elements. Once desired temp is reached, it only uses the name element.

I even have room in the van for mine, folds up only about 3 inches of profile.  One of the better tools that I rarely use!

#312975 Maytag Dryer MGD9700SQ0, no heat

Posted by MicaBay on 08 February 2015 - 04:13 PM

Thanks for the reply.   I don't recall the manufacturer but I ordered them online and they still list them as being made by Whirlpool and a part number of AP3094251


Would a bad coil keep voltage from going to the ignitor?   When the coils went bad before, the ignitor would glow but it would never provide gas.   This time the ignitor doesn't glow and doesn't seem to be getting any voltage.


Thanks again.   

Ok then.  This is good info.  The previous statements up until this point, was looking like bad coils, which is why Aplianceman97 was going that direction.  TIme to look else where...  

Why isn't voltage getting there?  I would measure the heat circuit at the control board and see if there is 120 volts at the two points.  If there is and the two terminals for the control board, between L1 and heat terminal, then the board is your problem.  I'll need a wiring diagram to give you a better more precise location to measure.  Usually on these machines one wire is Red and the other is black, but no way to know for sure without a diagram or having a picture of the board.


At 2:15 mark on the video is the heat cirucit that i speak of.

#312711 Customers "great" idea

Posted by MicaBay on 05 February 2015 - 01:03 AM

I had a GE frigerator that was in a pantry closet up off the floor.   Called for a defrost problem.  I addressed the concern about having to pull it out to service the condenser fan possibly one day.  She said no problem.  She took me out to the garage where instead of sheet rock she had a sheet of plywood which was held in place with pins.  She promptly pulled the plywood off & there was access to the compressor & condenser which was a foot off the floor.    She had thought that one out.

Not too many people have thoughts of their own....


Posted by MicaBay on 02 February 2015 - 09:13 PM


Well, what can I say? I gotta be the dumbest person ever!
Door switches good, my plugging them back in, bad!

After all that, I didn't plug the neutral wires back in properly, one of the spades was outside of the connector!
Plugged back in, all is well!


Happens to the best of us. Next time you'll know where to look before making a 2nd trip....
