Dryer Repair / Amana gas dryer model LGA50AW
« Last post by Thorning on August 08, 2022, 03:56:58 PM »
The above model dryer was given to me for possible repair. One of the items damaged is the lint filter assenbly . A large chunk of the grid is broken out. In looking up this model it appears that part is no longer available. Does anyone know of an alternate part from a different model dryer that will replace this item  ?

I agree . The Samsung will fit but it is not as good as the original Maytag.  The Smsung motor was taken out and a Maytag motor was used.

Bad motor. Replace with Maytag motor. I did Maytag service for 26 years and there are no real shortcuts that last.

Dishwasher Repair / GE dishwasher has to be reset constantly
« Last post by JDCook on August 07, 2022, 12:32:38 PM »
GE dishwasher. The board with the buttons and display was replaced about the time the warranty was up. Then a month or 2 ago it started having to be reset regularly by turning the breaker off.Eventually it wouldn't complete a load with out being reset.  I thought it was the computer board since it would shut off when it wasn't running as well. I replaced the computer board which looked a little bunt in one area.  But, it is still doing the same thing. Can I check the motor with a multimeter? What should I do next?

Thanks

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / GE Fridge won't dispense water or ice...
« Last post by stanstr on August 06, 2022, 10:30:28 PM »
We have a GE DSS25KGRBWW fridge that won't dispense water or make ice.We're using the filter bypass that came with it. The water line comes from a filter under the kitchen sink.
I had the back of the fridge open, trying to chase out the problem, and finally tried removing and replacing the filter bypass as we were getting no water into the solenoid assembly.

Then I find the part the filter bypass attaches to is broken. I was surprised to see it like this...
All it took was a slight touch for the broken part to fall off...

I assume when the filter / bypass is removed there's a valve in there that shuts the water off, and with ours broken like this it can't seat properly, so the water doesn't go back on.

Water comes to the fridge to the filter, then to the double solenoid assembly in the lower corner.
Is it ok to just bypass the filter (ie, bypass the bypass) by cutting the line from it to the solenoids and set the water line directly to the solenoids?
Has anyone here done this?

Washer Repair / Re: Kenmore Agitator Not Rotating Properly
« Last post by peterinwa on August 06, 2022, 06:15:12 PM »
After posting I got the idea to Google "Kenmore washer replacement parts" and found GenuineReplacementParts.com. I searched for my model number and "agitator" and found the broken parts. They are called Agitator Dogs.

I only had to remove one screw and washer to disassemble the part that held them, and it will be easy to replace them.

This was very rewarding! Less than $4 for the parts versus a bill from a repair service... or a new washer!

Washer Repair / Kenmore Agitator Not Rotating Properly
« Last post by peterinwa on August 06, 2022, 03:00:56 PM »
I have a 1995 Kenmore washer that has worked flawlessly for 27 years and never needed a repair. Same for the dryer. Amazing!

The upper part of the agitator, the part with the spiraling fins, it not rotating properly. It's basically loose and you can turn it with your hand. (The lower part of the agitator with fixed fins that just goes back and forth still works fine.)

I removed a cap on the top of the agitator and I can see the problem. What looks like yellowed nylon pieces have broken up. They appear to be designed to slip in and out of the teeth they fit just inside of. I marked the "teeth" in the first photo, but can't find them in the parts diagram. (The "teeth" are fine.)

I have also attached the parts diagram and list, but I can't figure out what in the diagram represents the broken parts.

I doubt they still make replacement parts for such an old machine, but is there any chance they are "standard" and replaceable parts?

Thank you. I know nothing about such things.
