Dishwasher Repair / Low pressure at one faucet and dishwasher?
« Last post by JaredArmstrong on April 23, 2014, 01:25:26 PM »
An old co-worker of mine had me check out her dishwasher, she said it barely cleaned on the bottom rack and next to nothing on the top rack. The cycle also takes a long time to complete. The first thing I did was run the dishwasher to see how much water was filling up. When I opened it up after the fill cycle stopped there was no visible water in the dishwasher! So I checked the hot water pressure at the kitchen faucet and it was extremely low, but the cold was fine. I went around the house and checked all the faucets and showers, and only the bathroom sink closest to the kitchen was low. 

I checked the inlet hoses to see if they were kinked but they were fine. My next step would be to check the hoses and inlet valve/aerator screens for blockage( I just didn't have time). Is there anything else that would cause low pressure at one (or a few) faucets? If the whole house was low i could see checking the water main valve and maybe considering a pressure regulator, or maybe the water heater if all the hots were low(?)

Thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Im new to this site and appliance repair in general, and this is really only my second "real" job so Im excited but still a little intimidated. So more reason why I love having this site!

Take care,
You ever have so much stuff that you just can't find what your looking for anymore. ;)
Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Frigidaire LFFC1466DW3 chest freezer not cooling
« Last post by jrandallc on April 23, 2014, 10:33:17 AM »
I have inherited a non-working Frigidaire LFFC1466DW3 chest freezer. It was reported that it was making a weird sound while running. I identified that as the fan and that's no longer a problem.

Here are the current symptoms/conditions:
-compressor gets warm during operation
-evaporator coils are clean
-I have bypassed the thermostat and that didn't help
-I hear hissing/bubbling in the coil lines. This, along with warm compressor, should indicate presence of Freon, is that correct?

What would be possible causes for no cooling at this point? Any other conditions I should report to help out with troubleshooting?

The freezer was transported on its side and turned on immediately. I know that is a "no-no" but I've read where that won't always kill a freezer, especially on "newer" models in the past ten years. Is that the case? It has been sitting for about two days now without being used. Thanks for any help.

Washer Repair / Kenmore Elite Washer

Hello, I am working on a Kenmore Washer Model # 796.3152211 and I am getting an error code of "ue" what does this mean nI should be checking? It will run for a bit then shut down and display the error code... I checked the belt underneath and its seems fine and it turn the pulley freely! My understanding is that this is an unbalance problem and I have checked for something between the tubs but nothing!! Anything else I can check or is this not a balance problem? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@john63: Now that would make sense doesn't it? The electric version would not need to control the gas valves!!!  :) That said, several sites have the 'A' model listed as the replacement for the 'D' model.

@bagjr387: I agree with your assessment, however I was never able to measure any voltage going to the coils. They Ohmed out OK, but never received a voltage. Which leads me to believe that the controller is bad OR that another sensor prevents the controller putting any voltage on...

Ordered the 'D' piece of amazon. Will update once I install it.
It's on the Google Drive Laundry Products
Sorry I dont know how to link direct to the doc. But it's titled "R020031E Bosch Siemens WFMC WFXD washer.pdf"

I just looked at the same machine on Friday. Motor was bad. NLA. She hated the washer anyway she said lol.

I don't feel that would be good.  The more American options (even though half their stuff is made overseas) the better.    Hope it does not happen.   Low,  your right.  Frigidare has been making their dryers and they were using LG to make their refrigerators.    We'll see what happens

John Thanks So Much -

I will inspect the upper wiring harness and look for damage, everything else has been diagnosed/replaced and is now confirmed ok.   I assume the good folks at fixyourboard will run a complete diagnostic and let me know where failure points were - I will check with them and get the main board repair underway.  Thanks for all of the help. I will report back.
