WTW4816FW1 Whirlpool Washer Not Spinning

When I arrived the washer was not spinning, and the sensor light was flashing when I put it in a drain/spin cycle to test it.

The tech sheet is located inside the washer taped to the inner front panel, after you raise the top you will see it. This video shows you how to raise the top.

Go into diagnostics and retrieve the codes, and clear them. If, when in diagnostics the codes are F7E1, F7E5, or motor speed codes, then chances are it is a motor, capacitor, or shifter related issue. Once the codes are cleared, put the washer into a manual diagnostic test and run the HEAVY AGITATION; if after 15‐20 Seconds the motor runs then you can rule out the motor, capacitor, control.

I removed the old shift actuator and installed the new one and it’s fixed!

Here’s the shift actuator for this model:

2008 GSS23WGTAWW GE Refrigerator Not coming on at times

2008 GSS23WGTAWW GE Refrigerator: Not coming on at times. I went out and the customer said when it cycled off it would not come back on at times, and other times it would.

I ordered the motherboard and replaced it and it fixed it, I called the customer back the next day and he said it was working just like new again.

Here’s the motherboard(main control board) for this model:

Maytag Dryer MED6000XW1 Not Heating

I went out to this customers house because they said their dryer was not heating at all. When I got there I unplugged the dryer, then used my multimeter to test the 240 volt wall outlet that the dryer was plugged into, my multimeter said 240 volts across the two 120 volt hot legs.

With the dryer still unplugged I then disassembled their dryer and ohm tested the heating element, my multimeter did not register anything(meaning my digital multimeter numbers did not change) when I touched each meter probe to the heating element terminals, so it was bad. The normal ohms should be 50 ohms or less when the heating element is good.

Here’s the heating element for this model:

106.53242300 Sears Kenmore Refrigerator Not Cooling Properly

The refrigerator was squealing very loud and it was coming from inside the freezer, I found the evaporator fan motor was squealing and shutting down in sequence, thus not cooling the freezer and refrigerator sections properly.

The evaporator coil had a thin layer of frost on it, which is normal, so the sealed system was working properly.

I replaced the evaporator fan motor, and it started working normal again.
