Dryer Repair / GE gas dryer DCXR453GV0WW - why different motors for WE17X10010
« Last post by g20zoom on January 22, 2017, 01:18:13 AM »
your links show a picture of the square motor like it's in my dryer.  Other places on the internet show a more hex looking motor(it's really 4 sides but not so squarish).

So some places show 2 different motor pictures for WE17X10010:
WE17M22 - square model, this is the one in my dryer.
WE17X22215 - not so square.

Will either one wire in the same way as the original?  Should the bearing diameter be the same?
I the reason I ask, I accidentally got something that looks like WE17X22215 without brackets, so I"m not sure if it will just plug right in.


Washer Repair / Re: Samsung topload noisy when spin starts
« Last post by Leeisfishing on January 21, 2017, 10:20:08 PM »
Working on a wa400pjhdwr   When it start the spin cycle it has a loud grinding sound but then goes away after getting to a medium spin speed. It sounds like it's coming from the clutch assembly. Now Ive run into this before and replaced the clutch assembly and the motor with no luck. Never 100% cleared the noise, it got better but never completely gone. ill post a video when I can    Hoping someone else has run into this before and knows the fix. Still think the clutch but it's a lot of work to replace if it's not going to fix it. Any ideas. Thanks

I have the same washer with the exact same issue. I replaced the clutch, motor (stator and rotor) , clutch motor (AKA drain motor) and none of these fixed the issue. I verified the teeth were fine on the flange on the bottom of the tub. I figured it had to be the main control board since that was all that was left. Replaced the main control board and the problem was fixed. At least I have a spare clutch, motor and clutch motor now. I will never purchase any Samsung appliances or electronic devices ever again. I replaced the main control board on this washer a year ago because it would error out and not finish a wash cycle. At least the washer is fixed for now. Until it blows up. Hope this helps someone.

Dishwasher Repair / Re: GE PDT750 won't drain

Welp, after not finding any clogs, and replacing the pump, it drained a little bit then got stuck again. So, I then (mostly at wit's end) happened to look at the drain hose, and noticed the check valve on it, and that it made some odd rattling sound when shaken... shook it a bit more, and a portion of the check valve came out along with a piece of chicken bone. I can only make a hypothesis that due to a clogged fine filter the water overflow caused the floating bone to go between the wide grates of the fine filter's top, and getting it stuck in the check valve breaking it in turn. Since in this case the check valve individually cannot be replaced, I replaced the high loop drain hose ($18 total) which fixed my specific problem.

Lessons learned:

1. Clean your filters regularly to avoid overflow
2. Clean your plates :embarassed:
That i don't know but, if i had to guess you would need the control board and you need the series number by the model number as there are 3 differant part numbers it could be.  Look at 5 in     Section: CONTROL PANEL/TOP ASSEMBLY
Thank you.  Now can anyone help us tell what part to replace?  How can I tell if its the relay or the control panel or something different.  Thank you
Hope this helps.
Chit Chat / Re: My first appliance part - 285753 Motor Coupling .stl file for 3d printing
« Last post by AJ on January 21, 2017, 08:42:08 AM »
Well that didn't take long. About a week after I posted the .stl file on thingiverse at least one person that I know of besides me has already printed it.

Here is some feedback they left about the part.

Attempting to print now. I am using high impact abs with a 100% infill I did turn it upside down on print bed and used a raft to print on. I will post more if it works for me. I may try and print in nylon as well for it should last longer.

It printed very well exact copy of the original part I hope it is strong enough I printed the center bushing in pla at 75% infill I haven't had a chance to install yet thanks for the design

I attempted to print the part myself last weekend, but part way through the laptop I had running the printer decide to reboot itself thus stopping the printer dead in it's tracks.

I must say I do enjoy the CAD part of things so much more then the actually 3d printing of things so far. The 3d printing part would be more enjoyable for me if it didn't take so darn long to print everything. Maybe I will get a faster printer this year or a bench top CNC machine. ;)
Yes, you are right.  The correct model number is jes9800aaw.  Thanks Jean

The DSI have had issues with bleeding ground.
Clean the ignitor with a brass brush to see if it cycles correctly.
If not they do have an upgraded wire harness to help with the bleeding ground.
