Dryer Repair / Re: Dryer Not Stopping or Heating
« Last post by scrapiron on February 16, 2017, 10:29:01 PM »
On that model, at the end of the timed cycle during cool-down, the voltage for one leg of the timer is fed through the heating element. So, if you have an open element, you get no heat and the timer also stalls about 5 minutes before the off position on the timer. Measure the resistance of the element. It should measure about 10 ohms. The other possibility is a bad centrifugal switch in the motor. It supplies voltage from L2 to the element.

Okay, so I've replaced the timer and check the voltage. It doesn't seem to be either one. Even with the new timer and adequate power, it still isn't heating. I tested the heating element and it does not seem to be picking up volts, so this might be the issue, but would this have anything to do with the fact that it would not stop?
Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Samsung Control Panel Temp shows OF OF
« Last post by tnarklady on February 16, 2017, 03:42:13 PM »
I just downloaded a manual for my refrigerator and found the 0F 0F means it's set in cooling off mode. To turn the cooling mode back on you press Energy Saver and Power Freeze for 5 sec.  After doing this the freezer temp shows -2 and the fridge shows 36. However it then goes back to 0F 0F.  Is there a button I can press to set this mode?

The control panel on my Samsung refrigerator RFG297HDRS has started showing the temperature as 0F 0F for freezer and fridge.  I found a post on this site telling how to get into service mode.  I've tried several times to change the temp for both freezer and fridge but can only set the fridge temp and then it goes back to showing 0F 0F.  This started 3 days ago when I accidentally brushed my hand across the control panel.
Washer Repair / Re: Washer on rain water?
« Last post by Shade26000 on February 16, 2017, 02:52:22 PM »
Ok, im 99% sure its just low water preasure. Is there anyway to hack the flow valve to work with low water preasure? I was going to tinker with it this afternoon but i figured I would ask if any of you had done something like this.

If i did my math right i would have to lift my tank up 6 more feet in order to get proper pressure. I dont think that is possible  for this sitution.

Dryer Repair / Re: Amana Dryer model NED7200TW

Thanks for the information.  The top  front panel is very difficult or impossible to remove without breaking the plastic tabs to remove and I am going to return this unit back to the owner and exchange it for a different one. I suspect the problem is in the control panel anyhow which will make it too costly to repair. I hope I never get one of these again !

Perhaps the following will be helpful.

Dispenser makes a noise when you press the paddles but does not dispense, water or ice.  We replaced the dispenser board, the door switch is getting 69V??? Any help is appreciated
