When I arrived it was running very loud, like rocks were in it, rattling very bad. I took the dryer apart, and found the Idler Pulley was wobbling on the Idler Pulley shaft.
There is a video that shows you how to take the dryer apart to replace the Idler Pulley when you click the Idler Pulley part link below. Make sure you ALWAYS unplug the dryer first before working on it.
Here’s the Idler Pulley for this model:

I arrived at the customers house and the start button wouldn’t push in properly to make the washer start a cycle.
I replaced the control board and that fixed it! The start button is integrated into the control board.
Here’s the control board for this model:

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:

When I arrived I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall, then unplugged the refrigerator, then removed the compressor start relay from the side of the compressor and used my digital multimeter to ohm test it, I set my meter on 200 ohms, and my meter’s numbers didn’t change when I ohm tested it, and that means its bad.
Normal ohms should be 12 ohms or less, usually around 5 ohms. I installed a new compressor start relay and the compressor came right on and started cooling. I also cleaned the customers condenser coil. located underneath the front of the refrigerator, behind the kickplate grille.
Here’s the compressor start relay for this model:

When I arrived there was no ice at all in the ice bin that’s located directly under the ice maker. I removed the front cover, just unsnaps off, and turned the gear in the direction of the arrow, then it started cycling on its own and it put water in towards the end of the cycle.
The freezer was at 5 degrees which is good. I told the customer I would call him later that evening to see if it dumped the ice out, So four hours later I called the customer and he said no ice had dumped into the ice bin, I ordered a new ice maker and went out to install it, and he called me back saying the new ice maker dumped the first batch of ice.

I went out to this refrigerator and found the back panel inside the freezer had massive frost build-up on it. I first unplugged the refrigerator from the wall electrical outlet, then ohm tested the defrost heater and found it was bad, meaning the numbers on my digital multimeter didn’t change. Normal ohms for most at defrost heaters is mainly about 30 ohms or less.
I completely defrosted the entire evaporator coil, which is located behind the back panel in the freezer, then I removed the old defrost heater assembly and installed the new defrost heater assembly, worked great!
Here’s the defrost heater assembly for this model:
