  1. I am in Germany but I think the same repair principles will also work on appliances here. I have a built-in countertop oven with a ceramic glass countertop stove top. The bottom heating element for the oven failed. I bought a new part and replaced it. After I repaired it the controls of the oven and burners do not work properly. In order to get the burners to turn on I have to have the oven on, otherwise there is no power to the burners. It also appears that the oven heat is not regulating properly. When I turn in on to the very lowest setting (in order to operate the stove top burners) it seems that the oven becomes VERY hot, much more than the temperature setting. I re-checked all the connections and they are exactly the way they should be. I'm at a loose for what to do. Any ideas? ONE MORE THOUGHT. When I was repairing the oven I found a silver unprotected wire wrapping around the rear panel of the oven and returning back inside. The only way to get the rear cover off was to cut that wire. I thought is was simply some kind of securing wire to hold the back on. Could it be a wire to a temperature controller or thermostat? If so, could that wire be soldered back and function properly? At the moment I only wrapped it together. Thx!
  2. I recently purchased a house, and the previous owners left the dishwasher behind (Whirlpool Gold Series: WDT720PADM). I was told that the heating element need to be replaced, but otherwise the dishwasher was in good shape. Upon inspection, the heating element had completely cracked, so we ordered a replacement from Amazon for around $30.00. When the replacement came, I followed the instructions on how to remove the old heating element and replace it, and everything seemed to go smoothly, only now, after running a wash, it's clear that the new heating element isn't heating. I came to this conclusion after putting some dishwasher washing product in the lower basket which has a wax seal that melts during the cycle when the temperature reaches a certain point. I ran a hi-temp cycle and when I checked on it this morning, the wax never melted and the cleaning solution was still in the bottle. I don't think I installed the heating element incorrectly, and I'm at a loss as to what else I can do to try and fix this without having to call an expensive repairman. Any thoughts?
  3. My 13-year old Asko dishwasher (D1776) is giving me the "F1" code, which means trouble heating. It's otherwise in great shape, so I thought I might grab a replacement heating element (part #8057077) as the easiest part to replace, but I have looked all over the internet and the only one I can find is used, in terrible shape, overpriced, and in Australia (I'm in the US). Is this something dishwasher manufacturers do - not produce enough replacement parts so that when parts break you have to buy a new appliance? Thanks, Chris

  6. I have a 30 Gallon Richmond Water Heater, Model Number 8MV30-2, Upper and lower wattage listed at 4500/3380 each. It was typically enough water to provide two showers before it ran out. About 3 months ago (yes I have been lazy in dealing with the issue) it started only giving enough water for about one shower. I eyeballed the top and bottom element from the outside and neither has the appearance of being burned out. To "rectify" the situation, I cranked up the heat, it works, kinda. I live in an apartment building where the maintenance guy has equal or less skill with this than I do, and the landlady is quite cheap, so replacing it would be like pulling teeth with no anathestic. Can anyone give me pointers on how to test each of the elements? I plan to turn off the power next week and drain it, I figure it would be a good time to pull each of the elements to inspect and test them. Thanks in advance for any help! D
