\ I will figure it out since it's a plug in part. They want $300 bucks (estimate) to install it and it will be next friday before they'll be out to do the repair. The original service call and part was all that's been paid for.

I'm more than able to do the repair. I usually fix most anything myself from guitar amps to my vette. I have a multimeter and tools to do it.

Anyways the part that showed up is #da32-00006r.

I don't know where all the sensors are so I can test them. Only one I know of for sure is behind the back panel which I'm hoping is the culprit. Having trouble finding repair info on this particular model. If I can knock this out in a few hours over the weekend and save her the money then cool.



guess you didn't figure it out since you are here asking.  :rofl:
if you own a vette, you can pay they guy 300 bucks to fix it O0

How dumb of an idea would it be to put a tap valve on this and try to put something like R134a stop leak into it?
NO the cap tube is less than 1/32nd of an an inch in size you will plug it.

I have had 1 lg fridge with a leak that wasn't fixable in the past yr. I have seen well over 10 in the past 6months that are just a bad compressor. Most don't like to do sealed system repairs. AKA new compressor. The LG compressors are built with tight tolerances and tend to burn out the valve.
My question would be did either of the repair people offer to tap the system to see pressures?
Doubtful because they wanted to collect their service call money and bail.
.5amp draw is normal.
Opening a sealed system is a can of worms sometimes. I always tell my customers you could spend xyz amount of money to fix this issue. You could be ok you could have more issues. This could be just the start of your problems. I paint a full picture and let my customer spend their money as they see fit.

Could Amazon become the next biggest parts supplier?

There are already a lot of appliance parts available on Amazon. The prices are generally reasonable and with free Prime shipping, a lot of consumers are buying parts there.

Yes that's true, but aren't most if not all of these parts on Amazon sold and even shipped by third parties?

I was thinking more along the lines of AmazonBasics Appliance Parts.

AmazonBasics is Amazon's equivalent of a store brand. Often, products come directly in Amazon boxes.

I finally bit the bullet and had a tech come out.  Compressor is running and has a 0.5amp draw.  He said it is a little low since he would expect it to be working harder in an attempt to get the fridge/freezer back to temp.  I didn't see the board or the light sequence but may pull the fridge back out to look for myself.  There is no frost, etc.  He said the copper joints are patina'd but not the lines themselves.  He said all the evidence suggests it is a refrigerant leak that is not able to be repaired.  Posting here to see if this makes sense before I either call another repair man or go buy a new fridge.

Thanks!

Ironic. Again, mine is doing exactly the same thing. The tech that looked at mine said it either had a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor and that I should plant flowers in it and that they don't even attempt those repairs.

I'm sitting here googling refrigerant leaks in refrigerators and finding that they apparently are "uncommon" and it is something he should have been able to check with gauges similar to an hvac system.  Makes sense to me.  He also said the reason they don't look for the leak any more than he did is that it is in some sort of sealed refrigeration system and you would have to break the seal and basically replace every joint.

I'm just finding it hard sitting here that someone who said they work on a "percentage basis" on their calls didn't try and sell me a repair.  Unless he just knew the repair wouldn't work and didn't want to do that.  If that's the case, even more kudos to him because he seemed to be dealing with me straight.

Washer Repair / Whirlpool Wtw4815ew1 agitator removal.
« Last post by Bread on July 21, 2017, 12:15:17 PM »
From all of the information I am finding, once I use a 7/16 socket to remove the nut in the middle of the agitator I should be able to remove it quite easily just by pulling up. However, maybe there is something I'm missing because I can't seem to get the agitator out it seems like it's cemented to the drum.  Any help at all would be super appreciated!
