I found the ice maker not making any ice at all, the ice maker would cycle but not put water in the ice maker tray. I volt tested the electrical connector that goes to the ice maker water inlet valve solenoid while the ice maker was cycling, and my multimeter was only showing 48 volts AC, and that ice maker water inlet valve solenoid needs 120 volts AC to put water in the ice maker tray.
I replaced the ice maker and it worked great, I could hear and see the water going into the ice maker tray.
Here’s the ice maker for this model:
Went on a service call in Parker, Arizona for a Whirlpool washer, model number WTW8500DC0, that wasn’t filling fast enough, very slow fill and it would time out per the control board. The error code was F8E1 LONG FILL.
I checked the customers water pressure to the washer on both hot and cold and it was good water pressure. Then I checked the water inlet valve screens and they were not clogged.
I ordered a new water inlet valve and went back to the customers house to install it, and it worked great, much faster water fill and no more error code F8E1.
Here’s the water inlet valve for this model:

I removed back panel in the freezer and found lots of ice clogging up the air vents going to the refrigerator section, and ice clogging the drain line below the freezer evaporator. I de-iced it all, it took awhile to do, but it has to be done before the refrigerator will cool properly again.
I saw the evaporator fan wasn’t running in the freezer, so I removed the electrical connector from it and used my multimeter to see if it was getting 120 volts to it, and it was. So I replaced the evaporator fan motor and it started blowing cold air.
Here’s the evaporator fan motor for this model:

Whirlpool Dryer model number LER6620PQ0
Unplugged dryer, ohm tested heating element to heater housing to check for grounded element, heating element ohm tested good, and not to the heater housing ground either.
Found stuck contact in timer causing this problem, Installed new timer, worked great!
Here’s the OEM timer I replaced for this model:
2006 Kenmore 106.56876600 Not cycling On by-itself, unless you hit the middle divider.
The contact in the temperature control thermostat is sticking, that’s why when the customer hits the middle divider the compressor and fans start running like normal.
The manufacturer has replaced part number WP2315562 with part number W11088945.
Here’s the temperature control thermostat for this model:
Model number LSR7300PQ2
The drain hose that goes from the water pump to the customers drain pipe was leaking near the bottom left side suspension support bracket of the washer.
