      [Webinar] Appliantology Peer Group   02/08/2018

        We're doing something totally new this time! In this first ever meeting of the Appliantology Peer Group, we'll be hosting a roundtable-style question and answer webinar. Bring something you'd like to share with your brethren in the craft: it could be photos, a tech tip, new insights gleaned from recent training -- anything having to do with the business or technical sides of the appliance repair trade. If you've got something to show, we'll let you share your screen and give you the opportunity to teach us all something new. And of course, Team Samurai will be there to answer any questions you might have about how to use Appliantology.

    hi  L1 ny TECH.       I CAME ACROSS A  te ERROR CODE ONLY   ON A Samsung   wm2487hwm  The thermistor reads good at room temp, The wires from the thermistor to the main control are good.  The heater ohms out at about 15 ohms , I also wiggled the wires while I was doing a continuity check on the thermistor wires to the control and they were still good.     Would this mean it is most likely the control board at this point 

  11. Part number: W10619951 be careful removing old one from drain pan, you don’t want to crack pan.
  12. With vent disconnected it does not error out?
  13. need service manual for WTW7300DW0

    @budget appliance if you’re looking for a tech sheet, please review the short video on how to search. If still no joy, then start a new service manual request.
  14. Kenmore gas dryer model 110.95866400 E1 error

    Yes. I’ve tested it with vent hose removed and on air fluff there is no heat and does not show any error code. Thanks
  15. need service manual for WTW7300DW0

    whirlpool WTW7300DWO doesnt have dial or buttons to activate / enter diagnostics . i cant find tech sheet . there are a couple of tech sheets offered on this forum, but both use the Dial or push any button three times, execpt on/off or start. thats all this model has is on/off start
  16. Be sure and blast some steam up through the drain to clear it or hot water down if you don't have a steamer.
  17. You need this if you don't already have it: Whirlpool OEM Part #W10619951 Last I heard Whirlpool will send you one at no charge.
  18. Samsung Ice maker issues

    maybe it makes 6 or so after it dumps them it stops
  19. Gotta disassemble and get your eyes on it.
  20. Samsung Ice maker issues

    i dont think there are any left. I tried defrosting w hairdryer, didn't make difference. water pressur to water dispencer seems fine
  21. Is there a way to confirm that easily or is the best bet just to empty and defrost it?
  22. Samsung Ice maker issues

    If it's dropping only a few cubes, something's wrong. Are there cubes left in the ice maker after it cycles? (You can use a light and mirror to inspect it). If it's only making a few cubes at a time, there low water pressure so the ice tray is not filling completely. The beep you hear after you cycle the ice maker manually means the water has finished filling the ice maker.
  23. A plugged defrost drain is a good bet. If there's ice on the freezer floor under the drawer or along the bottom of the freezer evaporator cover, then you have a frozen drain.
  24. Those were my first thoughts too. I can find no faults in the seal, and I'm positive that it's not because the door isn't being shut properly. Here's a photo of the frost "snow" in the freezer.
