Dryer Repair / Maytag electric dryer model MDE9316AYW with s/n 10659887UK
« Last post by Thorning on July 18, 2022, 07:19:51 AM »
The above dryer was given to me for possible repair . The previous owner said it would just barely start  the drum  to turn with a load of heavy wet clothes and sometimes it would just growl and quit.  I took it apart and found one of the drum rollers above the heating element worn out. The other roller was in decent shape.. No other significant damage was found. It was reassembled and tested but the drum still is a little  slow to start turning even when empty and does so with a growl.  I am going to take it apart again and check the motor bearings for any binding due to dirt, etc before I consider changing the motor. I have been told by another  tech friend that he has noted that this Maytag model is prone to this problem. If this is typical I wondered if it is possible  to revise  the electrical circuit for starting by adding a capacitor to the start winding. Speed Queen washers use a capacitor  in the motor circuit to aid the motor to start  heavy loads. Any comments ?

The compressor of this dryer was running but the discharge
 Tubing was barely warm. I found out the suction pressure was only 1 psig. So I charged it up to 75 psig, then the discharge tubing was a lot hotter. It seems the tempersture of the discharge tubing was fluctuating between very hot So and hot. So now the dryer has some heat. My question is:what pressure should the suction side be. What pressure should the high side be? I don't have this info. I am going back to this house this morning. It seems the suction side won't go up any more.after I put in more R1[size=78%]34a, to 75psig,[/size]
[size=78%]The heat is there, also means it lost lots of R134a. [/size]

Dishwasher Repair / LG Dishwasher “Gear Spinning” Noise
« Last post by pipentassle on July 17, 2022, 02:37:07 AM »
My LG LDT5678SS dishwasher is making a super load “gear spinning” noise when it runs, throughout the wash cycle. Appears to correspond with whenever the spray arms are running. The noise changes with variable power/speed of the spray arms. I’ve replaced the diverter motor already and that didn’t fix it. Tried to attach video but no luck. Any idea what else it could be?

Thanks for the info. I will consider trying the tube design the next time I have to do this job. The area that is available to make this work is very limited but is worth a try.

Here’s about the only photo I could find online of the Allen bar. I thought we had more photos of it on our site but can’t find them right now.

They use to make a tool for that. Allen Bar.

Here is a photo of it back when I was given one to test out.



It was just a tube that was pinched on one end and the other end had a handle on it.

A nut driver works too. Slip it over the clamp as shown in the photo and give the handle a tap with a hammer. I liked to use a dead blow hammer.

You can also use a large flat blade screwdriver and place it more towards the inside of the clamp in the “U” shape part if that makes sense.

Hope that helps
