  1. Hi all, just week I've had two occurrences where the pan of my trusty D1706 Asko dishwasher has been full (and overflowed). After drying it all out and looking for leaks during all cycles and drains I am stumped. Attached to the inside top edge of the steel access panel there's a line of spongy foam padding (looks like carpet pad) which was saturated. There's also a plastic "drip sheild" (part #8058486) that I presume is to catch drips from above. I don't think the door was open or full of water any more than normal use, but this wet foam is my only clue. Does this point to any solution for any of you veteran Samurai? Thanks, Steve
  2. GE Monogram ZISS420nmcs, side by side cabinet depth unit. condenser is in the "ceiling" of the freezer compartment. Water is leaking, and freezing, from the ceiling of the freezer. Started making a terrible noise (fan was hitting the ice). I have removed all screws but cannot seem to remove the ceiling panel. There is a small opening, I can reach in and feel ice above the ceiling. I suppose I can fix the symptom by letting all of the ice melt and simply turning off the water to the ice maker. Any better suggestions? TIA !!
  3. Bosch SHE3ARF2UC/07 Dishwasher Thanks for reading. Any help would be appreciated. Water has been running out from under the machine during and after cycles. Removed the bottom access panel and observed a few express wash cycles. No drips observed, but water would collect under the front feet, puddle there and then run out from under unit. Also observed water in the brackets where the door springs ride. Disconnected and pulled the unit out to inspect. The bottom of the insulation blanket is wet around the exterior of the unit and there is water laying in the gap where the plastic bottom tub and the stainless housing meet--almost all the way around. There is no obvious signs of leaking around the water inlet/vent assembly. Fittings on the drain line, vent and supply appear dry. I was hoping this was just a door gasket, but now I'm thinking it may be even worse than I first thought. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
  4. Hello—I'm back with a new issue. This time it's with my Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer (model 110.47789701). Recently it has been leaking water from the lower half of the right panel during the spin cycle. We have noticed that the water leaks more if we do multiple washing loads in a row. (I mop up the water after each time.) I would guess the total amount of leaked water is about a 1/2 cup per load. Any thoughts on what might be causing this? PS—For those who assisted with the dryer, the repairman came back a third time. We inspected the dryer's blower housing, and it was clean. After inspecting all of the heating element's fuses with no success in pinpointing the problem, he guessed it was a faulty circuit board. Rather than spending more money on a circuit board or hiring a newer repairman, we cut our losses and bought a new dryer.

  7. I've run into a few of these over the years from multiple model numbers and would like to share what I've found with the rest of you guys so hopefully you don't have to learn the hard way. Symptom is that the freezer will not get cold and they may tell you about a hiss even. You get there and put your gauges on it and find it's drawing a suction on the process tube. So after pressure testing the system you find there's a leak in the hot gas loop. Well here's where it turns into a mess. That hole in the gas line is allowing water to get into the sealed system and you'll never get it out. The only solution is a total sealed system replacement and a really good flush out of the remaining lines using either rx11 or some sort of refrigeration system flush to flush both the condenser and the mullion heater lines to get everything out, followed by nitrogen to flush out the flush. Here's the last one I ran into, somewhat start to finish along with follow up pictures of the evaporator and compressor cut open to reveal the water that gets sucked into the system and what the water will do to the internals of the compressor. Some are just pictures of brazes. Sometimes I'll take a pic of the backside to look at them, sometimes I think they're pretty, and sometimes I'll just document it to look at 10 years from now. Anyway I left the album raw, meaning if I took a pic that wasn't fuzzy I put it in the album. This job took me 5 1/2 hours to finish and I did it in place not removing the refrigerator from the cabinet. http://imgur.com/a/2xJaZ
  8. During any cycle that uses water, the machine is leaking water out the rear plastic cover that covers the electrical gear and valves. I removed the cover and the entire inside (valves, etc) are soaked. Floor has a large puddle. Google found me nothing - can't find any indication of where the water is coming from, other than the valves or perhaps the cups that store the detergent/softener. Any ideas?

  11. I have a slow drip from my Rudd Water Heater through the Temp and Pressure Relief Value. The heater is a Power Vent model PVP75FW We are on well water and the water contains minerals which have damaged other appliances. We have installed a CSI filter recently. So, being a relief valve, I'm wondering if it is "Relieving" itself or if I may have a damaged valve. And just out of curiosity, how many others type "value" for "valve". I seem to do it all the time. dgp By "slow leak" I mean perhaps just under a gallon over 30 hours or so.

  13. I found a post in this forum that appears to answer my question, but I wanted to start a new topic to get a better grasp of the big picture. My p&t valve line goes up and out to the patio. There appears to be water there (maybe 8 to 10 oz) every morning (after showers?). Here's the post that leads me to believe its either build up or too much pressure. http://appliantology.org/topic/27317-water-heater/?hl=p So if it is too much pressure, here's my question; how much pressure should be coming in from the street? Its City water. Is this a measurable thing, for a non-plumber like myself? A way to test it? We have a toilet that chronically runs for a second or two occasionally (I've replaced the entire tank kit by now) that also made me think I had too much pressure. I'm familiar with the valve to limit the incoming pressure, but only in passing. I say hello. Its silent... Any advice would be grratly appreciated. Even if its "Dude, call a plumber..." I can post pics and models #'s, but for now its more of a general, philosophical discussion. Thanks, D
