Chit Chat / Re: How many service calls per day?
« Last post by Ericfe on Today at 09:37:54 AM »
I've figured that to live and eat and pay my bills every month, I need to do about $160.00 per day, 5 days a week.  Anything over that is pure profit.  I average about 5 - 6 calls per day depending on the calls.  You situation may be different.  Average about 80% first time completes.  2 hour windows to work on each job.  Sometimes, I don't have the part in my stock but the local supplier does so I make the effort to get it and come back to complete the job before moving on to the next job.  Best to do quality work than quantity.   O0

Thanks for the detailed and honest comment. This is the exact kind of information I was looking for! Great work!

Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool GST9679PW3 Washer Stops Mid cycle

Bent it and tightened the mounting screws, (which were very loose, probably from years of slamming the lid!) and all is working now! I can hear the micro switch make contact closure early on the swing like you said, works like a charm. Many thanks!  :thanks:

I dont think that is a good model number! Do you hear any noise? SOUNDS like the pump is not running, but if it is and you dont hear water spraying with much force it may have a plugged impeller screen O0 O0

I worked on one of these 2 months ago and it had the same issue. It was the lid switch that sits under the back center of machine. The metal arm that controls the spin and fill cycle was bent. I was able to take it apart and and bend the rod to make up the switches in there. Let us know how you make out. It's a rather expensive lid switch assembly.

I think the drum acts like a megaphone and amplifys the noise.  This should fix your problem.  The blower wheel and housing should cost around $60.  Be sure to let us know how you come out on the repair.

My husband thinks the pump is not working because the water must come out because when I turned in on it ran and I saw water in the bottom of the dishwasher, but it seemed extra quiet like maybe it was not spraying.  The was about a $600 washer we bought in 2011.  Not sure if worth fixing or if the pump and labor would be the same as buying a more reasonable dishwasher.   I ran it on Normal then proscrub then light china cycles and all left food as if never sprayed with water even though you could tell water came into the tub.  Thoughts?  Please help.

Washer Repair / Re: Maytag stackable stops at rinse cycle and wont advance to spin??

very good pressure. Im pretty sure its not  water pressure issue

Does it stay full pressure ? May be after a while pressure drop. Try reversing the hot and cold hoses for testing only and see what happens.

I don't think water supply is the issue :(
