2001 Kemore Washer(Whirlpool made)
Bisque-on-Bisque Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. King Size Capacity Top Load Washer
Not washing, motor just hums:
This is a very rare problem i see. The timer and motor capacitor are shorted out. Hard to say why it happened, some appliances go 10-15 yrs. without problems, some go 4 or 5 then start breaking.
2002 Kenmore Dishwasher(Whirlpool built)
Black Kenmore 24 in. Built-In Ultra Wash® Dishwasher
Heres another motor humming in wash cycle, but this was caused by a piece of broken glass lodged in motor chopper blade, motor bearing was freezing up as well, not related to glass.
This motor/sump assembly is covered under a 5 yr. Part only Warranty,
Which is good.:)

2001 Kitchen Aid Dishwasher
Kitchen Aid Dishwasher
When filling with water, the water solinoid was knocking, like a water pipe vibration. Replaced water valve, worked great.
Customer was complaining of dishes not getting as clean. Installed new check valve and chopper blade assembly in sump(pump). Chopper was broken. The check valve is the small rubber flapper in sump(pump) that can stick and not allow proper water flow to spray arms. Replaced both, worked great.
2002 Kenmore Frigidaire built Window Air Conditioner
Kenmore 12,500 BTU Multi-Room Air Conditioner
Compressor was out. Replaced Compressor, worked great.
Replacing a Compressor is major job, takes about 3 hours.
You need to be a certified Type 1 40 CFR part 82, subpart F. AHAM-NARDA Refrigerent Tech. to change Compressors or do any sealed system work involving Freon(Refrigerant Gas). I got certified on 11-17-1994 when i worked for The Montgomery Ward Service Dept.
