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.

  1. Oven repair gone bad

    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
