Dishwasher Repair / Re: GE Quietpower 1 Dishwasher....

Screen is spotless.  I actually blamed that first...  I still think that upper rack junction has something to do with it, it really seems like a poor design.  How can I tell if the nipple gets engaged properly????
Does the arm turn? Then the joint works. Does the arm not turn? Add more water...

Washer Repair / Re: Kenmore 90 series clicking sound and lights flickering

  Ok, in that case, the problem is the timer. Timer contact #19 is not closing if wash time is set above 10 minutes. This causes the motor to continuously start/stop. Once timer advances to the point that this contact closes, the motor will run continuously. This is caused by a worn cam in the timer.

BTW, any part purchased from APP can be returned if it doesn't fix the problem.

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Kenmore 790.96004601
« Last post by stephanie on September 27, 2014, 09:38:13 PM »
I just bought a used kenmore stove.  The previous owner (I know well) had an issue with it throwing a spark.  She called Sears repair, they came out and replaced the control board in the stove.  She replaced the stove before it was fixed.  She was without a stove a few days, got tired of waiting. 
However, after we got the stove here, we noticed the power cord was burned one leg completely through.  We replaced the cord.  Tonight was the first night I used the stove and both front burners cooked extremely hot even on the lowest setting.  I am wondering if the spark may have fried the switches.  I don't want to order the wrong part.  I suspect the cord was either the issue all along, or the spark was caused by a short of the control panel?
I am replacing another kenmore, also a 790 model number, but a bit fancier than the one we currently are working on.  It had the runaway temperature error on the oven.  It caught fire twice.  The first time did not show an error.  I thought grease had spilled in the oven.  A year later, it went up in flames again while cooking.  That one may be the control panel.  It was easier to replace than repair at that point.  I am trying to sell my home, and I need to decide which to repair, junk them both, and buy new, whatever.  :-\ I don't want to burn the house down before it sells, or have it happen to the new owner.
Any help will be appreciated.   :thanks:

So there are different levels to clean Ultra Clean (14) down to 6. I would assume that means time it agitates before spin and rinse...? When I set it to Ultra, I get the issue. When i tried it at a 10, it was fine and had no issues.

Clean the inlet screen in the sump.  GE thought it would be a good idea to have the chopper behind the screen instead of in front of it. I usually find them plugged with shredded napkins.
There's no o-ring on that nipple.

  So, I reread your post and I'm not sure what you mean by, when it gets to normal cycle it runs ok. Do you mean in rinse cycle it agitates without the clicking? If so, then it's more likely the timer and not the speed switch.

Thanks!  I will do that tomorrow.  Can you tell me anything about the photo I posted?  There is a groove that looks like it needs an o-ring, but there isn't one there....  Should there be?

Make sure you turn the water off and shut the power off before you look for crud blocking the water valve.

The water valve is under the dishwasher. On the left. Take the bottom panel off. Its the piece that has your water line connected to it. It may be clogged. You can take it off to check it.
You can also pour a little water in it and see if it washes normally.
