      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

  5. service manual

    Hello, I am working on a Kenmore microwave and the microwave is having this problem. sometimes it over cooks the food and sometime under cooks at every function.Can anyone advice what might be the problem and also if anyone has a service manual. Model # 721.6365330 Serial # 410km00865 Thank you.
  6. So I have an LG bottom freezer, LFC25760st, that had a bad evap fan motor in it which has been replaced. Now since that new motor was put in the freezer is working fine but the top refrigerator section is not working at all. The lights won't come on and it is not recieving any cold air as if the air damper or baffle won't open. However when it's in test mode everything is working properly. Any help is appreciated.
  7. Wondering if someone can zero in on what part of the transmission is failing then? The numerous disassembly/re-assembly videos seem to indicate a fairly simple construction, and it seems (to me) the most vulnerable item could be the big nylon gear, which I might be able to imagine making that noise... I don't see any bearings on the agitator shaft, however there must be a bushing or bearing on the input shaft/worm gear - would that make the offending noise? Might just open'er up tonight and have a look-see for anything obvious...
  8. Likely failed (intermittent) Main Board Part number: EBR6262102 To verify...use a Test Meter to check for 120 volts at blue plug. Simply insert test leads into pump motor plug...and leave them there. You can either run a test cycle...and monitor voltage to the drain motor or... Put the washer in SPIN ONLY several times...to check power to motor.
  9. Aaargh!! It stop working. Wont spin, won't drain. Flashing OE - just like when I had the old pump and old wires Unplugged. In the morning, I'll try replugging and draining again.
  10. You were right about finesse. I wouldn't have gotten anywhere with brute force. But finally got them apart. Does a rinse and spin load right now. Will see how goes
  11. It’s more of a finesse thing. You just have to push down on the right place. Worst case scenario: you can’t get them apart. Just cut the connectors out and splice the wires together.
  12. I got it apart. I had to get a heavy flat head screw driver and press down and up. I've attached the new wire; and now I'm running a test dry load. Pump is currently working. Will try a wet load once this dry load is done.
  13. More pics The end of the new wire - the one I can't connect because I can't disconnect the new wire: Same thing, top view
  14. Hello again everyone Well I put the new wire on the drain pump, but I'm having trouble disconnecting the old wire on the washing machine side. See photo below. I tried pulling apart with two hands, doesn't budge Squeezing the sides doesn't help; pressing that tab in the middle doesn't help. And I turned it around and tried pushing where I saw some lines (like removing a battery cover for a small electronic device). Didn't work. Is there a special trick to getting it loose or am I just lacking brute strength? Thanks
