#327957 Siemens (Daewoo) side-by-side leaking from freezer

Posted by johntech on Today, 06:52 AM

You have a clogged evaporator drain in the back bottom of the freezer. If your sensor is off it could be turning on compressor and freezing water too early replace sensor thaw and unclog drain.

#327357 Kenmore/Sears Model 417.90872990 - spin cycle problem

Posted by johntech on 23 August 2015 - 07:28 AM

I would check for trash in the pressure switch tube. Pull it loose from switch and blow into it towards the tub to clear. If it thinks there is still water in the tub it won't go into spin. I would also suspect the clutch slipping.

#325842 Ge washer wbvh5300k0ww leaking at dispenser

Posted by johntech on 31 July 2015 - 01:11 PM

I pulled the dispenser drawer then I closed the supply valves put it in diagnostic mode and started test 12 dispenser test, I then opened the valves slowly until what I thought was the right amount of water entering the dispenser compartment. Not sure why I had to do that she has high water pressure but not the highest I've seen.

#325813 Ge washer wbvh5300k0ww leaking at dispenser

Posted by johntech on 31 July 2015 - 06:58 AM

I pulled the dispensers second time this time I pulled off every hose. No obstructions. All very clean like new plastic. Water does not over fill out the dispenser it simply hit the dispenser with so much force that it splashes everywhere. I tried replacing the water valve but same results. The machine is level. I ended up adjusting the flow thru the supply valve again and the machine works fine.

Same way as all the others. I tape my putty knife so I don't scratch anything. I believe that one comes apart like the inside trim on a microwave door, It always pops off before it breaks for me knock on wood.

#324963 GE J TP70S P2SS oven

Posted by johntech on 21 July 2015 - 06:52 AM

Most of the time it is the touchpad when buttons do not work. If you already replaced the main board and your sure the buttons are not locked and you checked all wires and connections then next step would be to replace the touchpad.

#324381 Kenmore 110.27721600 Stopped during wash cycle

Posted by johntech on 14 July 2015 - 06:48 AM

Check lid switch. You should see a hole around the lid with a switch in it. Depress it with a screw driver or shut the lid slowly and quietly and listen for a click. No click equals bad lid switch. You can google "whirlpool direct drive disassembly" for videos on how to access it.

#324347 Kitchenaid KUDI01TJWH0, slight "leak" through float lever?

Posted by johntech on 13 July 2015 - 05:51 PM

Yes soap suds tells me too much suds.

#324345 Kitchenaid KUDI01TJWH0, slight "leak" through float lever?

Posted by johntech on 13 July 2015 - 05:50 PM

Also make sure the water is not sudsy that is one of the first places it will leak if too much suds in tub.

#324293 Maytag MSD2754GRW, Noisy Compressor

Posted by johntech on 13 July 2015 - 06:49 AM

I would double check that none of the copper lines are vibrating against the compressor or the cabinet.

#324292 GE SXS GSH25JGDDWW warm beer compartment

Posted by johntech on 13 July 2015 - 06:46 AM

Yes a off value thermistor can cause damper to close at wrong temps or not open at all. I put them into diagnostics and test the damper to see if it can physically open and close before I check the thermistors.

#324239 Amana Refrigerator SXD22S2L (P1303503WL) - bad defrost control board?

Posted by johntech on 12 July 2015 - 07:24 AM

I would check for 120vac output to heater while In Forced defrost directly at the board to rule out wireing. you may be able to have it rebuilt at core concentric or build a board.

#324237 Apps?

Posted by johntech on 12 July 2015 - 07:08 AM

Strobe light rpm app for checking fan and spin Rpms, ration calculator I use for calculating thermistors when they don't give a full chart, and Google app is a must for a quick search.

On the home page under service manual request

#324047 LMV1630WW LG Microwave trips circuitbreaker

Posted by johntech on 09 July 2015 - 06:32 PM

You need to upgrade your membership to get access to service manuals and tech sheets. not sure if lg puts one in the machine or not. Normally in an envelope above the cooking compartment but you will need to pull it off the wall to see it also to check the plug and recept thy could be shorted.
