  2. Hi, Thank you for responding again. I will have to hold off on this for a while since I am starting to re-roof my house. When I get a chance I will see if I can open it and see why the slider is stuck and report back. Thanks again for your time and help. Hoang
  3. Service Manual not a Tech sheet

    For troubleshooting help, please start a new topic in the Appliance Tech Forum:
  4. Service Manual not a Tech sheet

    Welcome to Appliantology! Frigidaire organizes their service by manufacture date. See if this blog post helps you find the one you need:
  5. Ice maker in refrigerator section drain line is frozen. How to access and why is it freezing over
  6. Looking to pick up a few good techs in these mentioned areas to handle warranty work for us in those areas. If interested please send me an email at
  7. I am in need of help finding the service manual for a Kenmore elite dishwasher thank you
  8. Hey guys, Got a Maytag Whirlpool side by side fridge model MFI2269VEM3 and yesterday morning the front panel had no lights of readings on the LED display. The inside is no longer cooling or freezing, however there is still power to the unit as the light on the inside is still on and if I push a button on the front panel all the lights lighs up and the display reads 8888 (ie, all possible number combinations). I tried various button combinations I found somewhere on the net to try to reset it. Tried unplugging it and plugging it back in. Neither worked unfortunately. Any idea what the problem could be? Bad control board I'm guessing but which? The dispenser or main? or maybe something else thats easier like a fuse or something? Any insights are appreciated! Thanks! Tweak
  9. I will do that test later this evening and report the results.
  10. Just trying to find the service manual for a kenmore elite dishwasher 66517472300. thank you
  11. Need to see if circulation motor is getting power during cycle in question.
  12. Opps model # is KDTE104ESS1 - can't see how to edit this on the title.
  13. Spray arms are clear. Most of the time water does not circulate, but some times it does. It more often circulates when on Proscrub. Almost never circulates when on normal.
  14. If water is being circulated I would disassemble and clean spray arms and sump area.
  15. Do you hear water being circulated during wash cycle?
  16. As title says. What I've observed: - Dishwasher fills and drains OK. - Dishes don't clean, soap does not dissolve. - Most of the time sprayer does not spray. It does spray once in a while, more often on Proscrub setting, almost never on Normal setting. - The filter is clean. - No error codes on normal service. I have not yet run diagnostic. - Run time seems very long. Even though it does not clean dishes. - I'm almost certain it is not ever heating the water. I suspect the turbidity sensor. Am I on the right track? Thanks!
  17. Your model uses the tech sheet from this bundle (but not the schematic): And here's the schematic for your model:
