I went to the customers house and found the dryer running but not heating at all. The Ignitor was not even turning on. I unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet, then took the dryer apart and ohm tested the thermal limiter that’s located on the burner tube and it ohm tested bad, no continuity at all.
I ordered and replaced the thermal limiter and it worked good and started heating.
Here’s the thermal limiter 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 went on this service call because the customer said the washer was not spinning and leaving the clothes wet. When I arrived I found the door latch lock switch assembly broken.

Procedure to Remove Lock Assembly:
Use the following procedure to remove the new lid lock assembly from the washer top panel.
1. There is an embossed emblem of a lock on the right-hand side of the lock bezel (see figure 1).
2. With a thin plastic putty knife or small flatblade screwdriver, lift up the side with the lock emblem and slide the lock assembly to the right (see figure 2).
3. Next, tip the left side downwards and guide the lock assembly down through the opening (see figure 3).

When I arrived I opened the freezer door and there was massive frost build-up on the back panel inside the freezer. I Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall outlet, then I got my heat gun and started defrosting it, then I removed the back panel inside the freezer and continued defrosting the evaporator coil.
I noticed a bulge on the top of the defrost thermostat, and ohm tested it while it was still covered in frost and I got no ohms reading at all, so it was bad and the cause of this problem.

I went out on this service call and found the oven ignitor glow bar was not turning on to light the gas. I checked for 120 volts at the oven ignitor glow bar electrical connector with the oven on and set to bake at 350 degrees, I had no voltage at all to it.
I ordered the clock oven control board and replaced it, and that fixed it, works great!
Its very easy to replace, just pull the range out from the wall, then unplug it, then remove the back console access panel, then remove the clock oven control board by removing the 4 screws, then remove the overlay on the old one and put it in the exact same place as the new one and your all set.
Here’s the clock oven control board for this model:

This Freezer was not running at all when I arrived, I checked for 120 volts to it, which it was getting. I then unplugged it from the wall outlet and removed the lower panel inside the freezer and ohm tested the temperature control thermostat, with it in the on position, and got nothing. No continuity between the two electrical terminals on it.
I ordered a new temperature control thermostat and went back to replace it and it fired up and started cooling.
