  2. It uses this mini-manual. This has an air flow picture on it. And this tech guide but don't think it has what you are looking for.
  3. GE Service Manual for GSS22JFMBWW

    I submitted the mini-manual for your model. The service guide for the electronic control & the knob control fridge are already in downloads and could be found with a search using GSS22*

  5. So I left the lid lock test on and was able to perform the spin and agitate tests. When I ran all of the tests, they all worked/passed. I then took all the connections off of the main console, visually inspected the wiring harnesses and connection. They all looked ok. So I put everything back together and the washer is working fine now. Agitation is working throughout the cycle. Weird. Guess I will have to keep an eye on it and see if it fouls up again. Thanks again for all the information.

  9. Looking for the service manual for GE refrigerator SxS model GSS22JFMBWW.
  10. This seems to be an odd model. GE's website has nothing on this machine. It has a icemaker in the door and it is not getting cold enough to freeze ice Air come through two vents in the side of the inner wall. I was hoping to get a look at the air flow without ripping it apart. Right now I have nothing on this model PFSF5RKZC Lots of PFSF5 but they do not show the icemaker in the door Thanks in advance for any help Don
  11. We just bought a house and it came with a Kenmore Intellisoft 420 Series water softener (model 625.384260). It does the job just fine. However, even though I have the regeneration scheduled for 2am, and the system clock shows the correct current time, regenerations consistently start around 7:30pm or so. Also, the salt level indicator never adjusts itself as the level goes down. It stays on whatever level I input after adding salt. Would doing a system reset solve these problems? Also, there are the letters E and Q in black boxes in the upper left corner of the display, and I have no idea what those mean. Thanks.
  12. Oh that's right!!! It did say that multiple outputs may be activated simultaneously. Didn't even think to try that. Thanks for the feedback! I will try that first and see where it goes from there.
  13. Yes, lid lock test first and let it remain locked through all subsequent manual tests. Lid lick test is optional but I don’t recommend it. They all taste the same to me.
  14. Amana Dishwasher

    Something is really wrong with the model number it would seem, the closest I found was also the same as JohnTech but that can't be it because that is a mechanical timer model. NJ, there are some cycles on most computer controlled dishwashers that certain option modifiers can't be used with, (IE: Quick Rinse cycle usually won't take any other options, China cycles usually won't let you use the HI-Temp Wash but will still let you use a SANI or HIGH Temp RINSE if you have the separate Hi Temp Wash and HI Temp Rinse options). If they are trying to use the NORMAL cycle I'm pretty sure it should let them use any of the option modifiers available on the control panel.

    THANK YOU

    That's called the "P-number" in Amana-ese. Depending on the P-number with your model, the tech sheet will be one of these
