Chirping can be one of the bearings bad or not seated correctly. I've had it happen a few times in new kits.

Dryer Repair / Kenmore Elite He5 110.87088601: control panel doesn't work
« Last post by ClayC on February 10, 2016, 07:42:58 PM »
Ok I'm a newbie here but not a newbie to repairing "things", ie about everything around my house and in the garage.

I have a Kenmore Elite He5 110.87088601 electric dryer that the control panel won't turn on at all. I've got the correct voltage to the unit, and the correct voltage to the control panel (5 VDC). The drum light works, and so does the door switch. I've followed the tech manual to the point where it says I need to "replace the console electronics and housing assembly".

SO according to the sears website (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-part/11087088601/0583/0151200/k0801041/00001.html) there are two pieces of electronics in the housing, the dryer user interface and the dryer electronic control board. OR I can buy the whole assembly for stupid money ;)

My main question is how do I figure out which one I need? If I buy both then I might as well just buy a new dryer because they together cost about 50% of a new one.

So any help you can give would be much appreciated!!

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: GE JTP15 Oven Broiler not working

Could be the broil relay on the board. May have to send it in. Unless you can replace the relay yourself.
Washer Repair / Re: Older model Maytag washer water valves

I have taken the valve off and checked it and it is possibly not working as I got everything back in place , hooked up the water and tried all different settings for the washer controls and got a slight hum and nothing else. I also accidentally blew the fuse for the lid switch. Any suggestions on my next step ?
Hi guys,

OK I have some good news! I did order the control board and I do have the broiler working. The broiler is useless to me its never, ever used.

Is it possible to take the new ignitor presently connected to the broiler and use it for the oven instead?

Then pull the 'broil wire' from the control panel so there is no chance of it engaging. As well, take a ceramic wire nut and close the broiler wires.

Install new broiler ignitor in the oven.... Test.... and if it works, my pops can continue to use the oven hassle free?

This scenario would save him money so he does not have to purchase another ignitor. I would imagine if there is no chance of the broiler lighting its just like an oven working and not the broiler.

Cheers guys!  :cheers:

Washer Repair / Re: Lost Ring in Whirlpool Washing Machine

Just for the heck of it, if a through search of the washer is a
total bust, I would check out your dryer. I do mean thoroughly
taking it apart! I have found all kinds of goodies in dryers;
money (coin & paper), jewelry, id's, credit cards, driver licenses, bobby pins, small screws, bolts, washers, Lego's even small bags of weed...

The thing is if the drum seals are a little worn, small stuff will
slide right through and build up on the floor of the dryer.

A few years ago the company that I worked for was removing
some old commercial washers & dryers from an apartment building. One of 30 year old Whirlpool gas dryers seemed a little bit heavier than the others, since they were all destined for the local scrap yard, I took the ancient Whirlpool apart and found $57.49 in change in the dryer. The change was from the
1960's into the 2000's. There were some old bus tokens too.

One other time I found an old pocket watch (the crystal was very badly damaged). And I also once found a $20.00 bill when cleaning out the lint trap in an old Maytag dryer.

Over the years I have considered old dryers like "treasure chests". Better than a box of chocolates, better prizes than
a cereal box....

I see that you found your ring! Good job, but I could not resist
sharing my "treasure chest" story.   

Well that's good to know what treasures lurk in old machines!

I had actually considered this when I took the agitator out because I noticed how clean and empty it was under there (with the obvious exception of my ring!). When I saw this, I thought how it was a shame that our washer and dryer were replaced maybe 3 months earlier because I probably would have found some goodies! And now with your story, I know it to be true!  O0
BUT since my only goal was finding the expensive (for a man at least) wedding ring, I guess I'm glad I had a brand new machine to take apart. I imagine bolts and screws are easier to remove when they aren't 25 years old!  ;D
