Whirlpool Dishwasher(Model#DU910PFGB0): Making loud noise in the wash and drain cycles.
I found all kinds of glass and fruit seeds down in the pump impeller assembly, and the impeller was broken due to all that as well.
Installed new pump impeller kit, worked great.

2003 KitchenAid Dishwasher(Model#KUDS01FKSS01): The control panel display lights were all dead, nothing would come on. I turned off the house breaker to the dishwasher then opened up the control panel by taking off all the inner door screws, that will also release the front outer door panel.
Then I used my volt/ohm meter to ohm out the thermal fuse that’s attached to the control board to check for continuity. There was no continuity, so I replaced the thermal fuse assembly with the wiring that was included with it, thats a must, and it worked great.

1999 Sears Kenmore Side by Side (Model#106.58582892)(Made by Whirlpool):
The ice maker had stopped making ice, but the water dispenser in the front was working fine. I ohmed out the ice maker solenoid on the water inlet valve, and it showed continuity, then i took off the electrical connector to the ice maker side of the water inlet valve solenoid and put my volt meter leads in it, and then cycled the ice maker. When the ice maker called for water, my volt meter went to 120 volts, so that told me that even though the solenoid showed it had continuity, it was still bad, it was just stuck closed.
I replaced the water inlet valve assembly and it worked good.

2001 Kenmore Front Load Washer (Model#417.41042000 made by Frigidaire)
The problem the customer was having was the tub wouldn’t move at all in the wash or spin cycle.
I found the motor controller board was bad.

Here is a photo of the Maytag Gemini Double Oven Free Standing Range.
These have been fairly reliable, but I have seen some clock/electronic control board failure, but not many.
