#314768 E-lux d/w leaking -- EIDW6105GS1 -- bottom gasket folding up

Posted by johntech on Yesterday, 08:19 AM

on door leaks I normally replace both gaskets Together, Even if only 1 is bad I figure that if one wore out the other one can't be far off. I don't put any sealant on the bottom one unless instructed to. Then I make sure the dish washer is not tilted forward. Also check the spray arm holes for obstructions.

Blue book is a program that calculates priceing based on the information you put in it. we just got blue book and are in the process of implementing it. What we did before was mfg suggested retail for parts, we have a 68.00 service call that covers diagnosis and 68.00 an hour for labor. Most repairs are a service call and half an hour labor depending how I depth the job is there may be more or less labor.

#314030 KUDK03CTWH2 dishwasher not draining

Posted by johntech on 24 February 2015 - 07:30 AM

Did you replace the pump with a new pump or just put the old pump back in? A weak pump motor will not drain completly in the alloted time.

Yes I have also ran into the bi-metal that controls the condensor fan. It saves energy by not running the fan until the condensor heats up.

#313637 GE monogram stove top mod. zgu385nsmss burned out transformers

Posted by johntech on 18 February 2015 - 06:25 AM

Did you check the windings on the transformer before you replaced it? It the primary windings are bad then just replace the transformer. If the secondary windings are bad then you have a problem down stream and without finding the problem it will short out the new transformer. Check your switch harness to ground.

Upgrade your membership and search the download section for the tech sheet. Error codes normally lead you in the right direction. Or there should be a tech sheet hidden inside your machine somewhere. Normally in a plastic bag attached to the cabinet somewhere

#313297 GE Dryer DBLR333GTOWW getting old

Posted by johntech on 13 February 2015 - 07:21 AM

Number 1 cause of long dry times is clogged duct work.

#313295 Detergent in LG Washing Machine Model WM2650H*A Not Dispensing

Posted by johntech on 13 February 2015 - 07:14 AM

Check your hot and cold water valves in test mode Ito see if they have the same flow rate. if they are not even then you will have dispensing problems.

#313160 Whirlpool Duet Steam Waher #WFW95HEXL2 wont fill or run

Posted by johntech on 11 February 2015 - 07:53 AM

Yes I agree mcu is almost always the cause.. Check for broken wires. The samurai has a video with a trick he does where there is corrosion on the board and he adds solder to the board and beds the contacts to make a better connection. That has never worked for me it always turns out to be the mcu.

#313015 GE Monogram ZDP36N6-one burner only sparks once

Posted by johntech on 09 February 2015 - 07:09 AM

It will be either the wireing or the spark module. Check for a bad wire connection leaking to ground.

#312972 Kitchenaid Superba KSRB22QFBL00 Ice Dispenser -- Solenoid or Motor?

Posted by johntech on 08 February 2015 - 03:36 PM

I think you need to replace the paddle. We replace parts with oem parts. Yeah sure you can probably rig somthing up with tape and glue but isn't your time valuable? If you spend 2 hours rigging it and finally get it to work then a week later forget about it and get a little ruff with it then have to redo. Just replace the part it's really not that hard or involved if you watch a few videos, or accept defeat and learn to get ice the old fashion way.

#312637 110.25062500 - Leak?

Posted by johntech on 04 February 2015 - 07:25 AM

Very gently.

#312591 Frigidaire affinity dryer FAQE7001LW that shuts down after a couple minutes.

Posted by johntech on 03 February 2015 - 02:14 PM

As a rule of thumb if you cannot get somthing to enter diagnostic mode and you are sure you entered it right the there is a button/touchpad problem or a board problem. If all buttons respond then it is a board problem.

#312588 gas kitchenaid cooktop mod# KGCT305BAL0 ser# xg4101046

Posted by johntech on 03 February 2015 - 01:17 PM

I've ran into a couple that seemed to be glued. Idk if they were or if the hat just melted the seals. I used my razor knife to free the top but be careful not to brake it they break easily. Almost all the parts inside that thing are no longer available I would take that into consideration before I wasted a lot of time on it.
