#263071 very OLD GE washer model wwa3100GBLWH

Posted by Spannerwrench on 31 July 2013 - 01:02 PM

Before you condemn this washer, check the pressure hose where it connects to the outer tub, make sure it's not clogged up with gookus.

Replace the water valve.

Take the dispenser cover off, something in the, probably plastic, is broken.


#262860 Kitchenaid 42" built-in fridge starts and stops constantly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 July 2013 - 05:30 PM

Does it by chance have a variable speed fan motor and a variable speed compressor. Sometime they will seem like they are running constantly and turning on and off. But they aren't, they're just slowing down and speeding up.


#262853 Whirlpool and Soda stream

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 July 2013 - 03:53 PM

Let me me know PDuff and I'll light the smoker and start heating the fryer. I'll do the hot wings and pulled pork, you cook the ribs and bring the suds.
Why is that people who work on appliances always seem to like good old barbecue and beer?


#262850 ASKO 1475 dishwasher manual, please

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 July 2013 - 03:22 PM

There may be a check valve installed on the drain hose where it connects to the disposer outlet. I've seen those get filled with gookus before. Also if you're not very familiar with the ASKO DWs make sure you unplug it before you work underneath, you won't like it if you're wet and touch the wrong thing.


#262849 Kitchenaid panel lights

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 July 2013 - 03:18 PM

I had a problem finding the power supply board on the parts lookup about five or six years ago. It happened to me three times. The power supply was not in the control panel it was down by the back on the right side of the range. All of the breakdowns were wrong. I finally got the correct part that I needed, but I can't reproduce what Idid to find it now.

PDuff is correct, is could still be a voltage problem. Does any of the 120v circuit work, the fluorescent lamp or the interior light. The control needs a neutral for the lights to work, if the neutral is missing the surface elements would still work but the control would appear dead.


#262714 Old School

Posted by Spannerwrench on 27 July 2013 - 03:10 PM

I have alone of those MAYTAG DW belts still, and a Wig-Wag if anyone needs them. I just can't seem to let them go. Remember trying to tell a customer that their washer needed a new Wig-Wag? They thought you were feeding them a line of BS. "What's next, I need a new Flux Capacitor?"


#262614 GE Arctica Side-by-Side Ice Maker Problems

Posted by Spannerwrench on 26 July 2013 - 02:21 PM

It's possible that the leaking mold jammed the paddle and the motor went bad, either way though, it's leaking so you just replace the entire ice maker.

#262464 WASHER OFF BALANCE MTW6600TB0

Posted by Spannerwrench on 25 July 2013 - 03:36 PM

If any of the valves are bad the tub will not float for the agitate and the whole tub will jerk and getting the off balance code. This will not cause it to be off balance for the spin cycle though.


#262370 Viking vdsc 5364 dss

Posted by Spannerwrench on 25 July 2013 - 07:07 AM

It's depends on which oven you're using at the time.

The LED error codes are displayed on the control panel using the cycle lights. Refer to the chart below to determine
the type of error that is being displayed. These error codes are for the 48" left oven and for the griddle.

Cycle light flashing
Model Header error. 3 flashes, then 4 seconds OFF

The header error is the jumper wire on the control. It is used to tell the board what model it's on.


#262366 Kenmore washer motor? switch.

Posted by Spannerwrench on 25 July 2013 - 06:57 AM

Here's a little diagram I use to train new techs with. It's mainly for Whirlpool dryers, but it it help you understand where the motor is getting neutral and line voltage from and when. Note that the terminals and colors are different, but it's the same basic principle.

#262170 LG Combo Washer/dryer not drying

Posted by Spannerwrench on 23 July 2013 - 04:29 PM

When you disconnected the valve and ran it were you backed up on laundry and did a full load? Remember, when using a combo washer-dryer you can only do half loads. If you fill it up for the wash cycle there isn't enough room for air flow during the dry cycle.
You may have nailed the problem but tested with an oversized load.
