Dryer Repair / Re: Whirlpool WED6200SW1 dryer keeps blowing thermal fuse
« Last post by Blaiser on January 17, 2017, 06:24:46 AM »
Have you tried running the Dryer without the Vent line connected? Did you check to see if the Heating Element is not grounding out of the frame of the Element housing. Take your OHM Meter and put one lead on each leg of the heating element and check for continuity then take one lead and place the lead on the frame and the other lead on one leg of the heating element - do you get continuity (if so - your heating element is grounding to the frame and needs to be either replaced or repaired). Check the other leg side also. Let us know - something is not right!

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / looking for a 18 cubic ft refridgerator
« Last post by shinso on January 16, 2017, 09:49:26 PM »
Hi, long story short is that my Kenmore refrigerator (253.6580250A) is having the problem where the vent inside the freezer is frosted up quite frequently and the fridge part is not cold. Some people told me that it needs freon, though I searched and did not really see what it had to do with it. One way or the other, I feel that fixing it may not be worth it and I am looking to buy a new one.

At this moment, I cannot find a 18 cubic ft refridgerator with decent enough reviews. I only have space for a 18 cubic (30 in wide x 65 in high).

It's a shame because 10-15 years ago, a Kenmore would be a no-brainer. Nowadays, not so much.

I was wondering if anybody can recommend me a specific brand and model to look into. I just need a basic refrigerator with no frills like ice makers or anything like that. If it can run smoothly for 5 years that would be beyond perfect.

Many thanks and have a blessed week to all!

Chit Chat / Motor Conversion for 2-1664-12 Motor

Good working motor out of a Maytag washing machine.  I would like to wire for a dedicated drive motor for some bench applications.  I have all the material for shielding and grounding.  I even have the original plug from from the machine.  Just not sure which terminals will give a dedicated motor with my SPST switch.  Anybody have an idea?  Thanks!

Dishwasher Repair / HE error code on LG dishwasher mdl# LDF9932ST
« Last post by karenpking on January 16, 2017, 06:30:56 PM »
Hi there! We have a LG dishwasher, mdl# LDF9932ST, that is flashing the error code HE. We unplugged it and tried to run a load but the error code appeared again. My husband replaced the heating element, reinstalled, and ran another cycle but the error code occurred again. It seems to run through most of the cleaning but stops towards the end without draining the remaining water. What else could be wrong? I've read that maybe the timer or the thermometer. What do ya'll think? Major thanks in advance!!!

Dryer Repair / Whirlpool WED6200SW1 dryer keeps blowing thermal fuse
« Last post by Freckleface on January 16, 2017, 02:00:02 PM »
WED6200SW1 dyer keeps blowing thermal fuse. I have changed it 2 times and each time it dries 2 loads of clothes then blows again. I get a code F25, since means inlet thermistor is open. I have changed the high limit fuse, the inlet thermistor, control board, thermal fuse twice, and the outlet thermistor twice. I at my wits end, got any suggestions? I have put so much time and money into trying to fix the dryer I don't really want to call a repairman now.

I try to make sure I test with the drum out for less than a minute --maybe two. Same time with the drum in place and turning.

Four year old Samsung (RFG298HDRS/XAA) French Door in door water dispenser keeps stopping or releases water very slowly.
There is plenty of water pressure and I did purchase a new Samsung brand filter to replace the 4 month old filter that was in it just to make sure it wasn't somehow a filter issue.

Usually when it stops working, I can pull out the filter, fill a glass with water, then stick the filter back in and it will work for days or even weeks until it stops again.

When it stops, I can hear what sounds like a small pump running when the water dispenser flap is pressed like it is trying to work, but a stuck valve or something is preventing water from coming out.

Recently, instead of stopping completely, the water flow is slow. Same pull the filter trick will temporarily resolve the issue.

It might be worth noting that sometimes, when I pull and re-install the filter, there is a lot of pressure on the little valves in the filter assembly and I have to push hard to get it to go back in and other times, there is no pressure ?

Because of this, I started researching "Water Inlet Valve" assemblies and had a day off today and decided to find the thing and hopefully get the correct part number off it so I could order one.

Unfortunately, this model fridge does not have the "Water Inlet Valve" in the rear lower right side of the housing so it must be inside and possibly part of the water tank / water filter assembly ? ( water filter is in between the veggie drawers in middle inside of fridge )

I tried to find a service manual for this thing on line but could not locate one that doesn't charge a fee.

I'd like to know if anyone has seen this behavior before and knows what the issue might be ?

Also, I'd like to see a service manual so I can see how the thing comes apart, and part numbers so I know what to order. Anybody have access to one ?

Since I hear the "pump noise" when no water is coming out, I assume I can rule out the control panel as being part of the issue ?

Seems like there is a valve that is getting stuck or a solenoid that operates the valve that is failing or something like that ?
