    Why did you not answer my question ????????
    I only asked how long does the tubing last ? Is this to difficult to answer.???
    I am greatly disappointed in your reply , listing other problems is totally useless. I do not call this Customer Service I expected to receive from Maytag.

In garage/works perfectly/slow leak coming from an insulated hose that goes directly into the bottom of the freezer itself.


The hose coming from the bottom of the freezer is draining the melted water produced during the automatic defrost cycle. Usually the water is collected in a pan somewhere around the hot compressor motor so the heat can evaporate the water.

The hot copper tube by the compressor is the high pressure tube going to the condenser. The other tube going to the compressor is the return line from the evaporator and, after normal operation, is cold to the touch. It is this cold refrigerant returning to the compressor that cools the motor.

Hello Ion;

My name is Peter. I am a retired (excuse the expression) Sears field service appliance technician.

First, The people who installed your appliances are not technicians. Sears contracts delivery people to deliver appliances.
Often, It is not uncommon for me to make service calls the day after an appliance has been installed.

First, shut both the hot and cold water supply valves off. Remove the connection hoses from the valves. Be careful, where I am going with this is, after years of not being operated your shut off valves my be bad and partially block with rubber seating material. So, when you turn off the valves some water will still be in the lines. Your valves could be turned off, faulty and full open.

Now, with the hoses removed, open each water valve. Check for full flow. If you have a blocked cold water valve you will get an error code.

Next, the connections on your washer are marked; 'C' & 'H'. Make sure you have the hot water line to the 'H' and the cold water line to the 'C'. You will get an error code if the lines are reversed.

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...


The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,
Bill

Were is cold water inlet and hot water outel on model 71-40d b


Cold inlet and hot outlet are marked on top of water heater.
Usually there is a letter or word embossed into the metal top.

If tank is connected, then turn on hot water tap for a few moment and feel which pipe is hot.

Cold water enters bottom of tank through dip tube located on cold side. If hot and cold are reversed, the water heater will not perform as expected.

Maytag Performa washer overflows when filling on any size load. Will stop when I push in the timer knob.


Overflow is usually caused by a "stuck-open" fill valve, with the cold water half of the valve 'sticking' open from sediment buildup inside the valve.

This can also be caused by the fill system control components: pressure switch, pressure tube, or pressure tube dome/port. So let's take a look at these.

First of all, determine whether your overflow condition is mechanical or electrical. Start the washer filling, then turn the timer off by pushing the knob in. If the fill continues, pull the washer plug. If filling continues with the washer unplugged, you have a mechanical problem - nearly always a stuck valve ***'y. Replace the fill valve.

If however, the fill stops when you unplug the machine, you are looking at an electrical fill control problem, and it gets a little more complicated.

Here a small piece of rubber or plastic tubing is handy. Unplug the washer and open the console where you'll see the pressure switch. This is the switch with a small rubber tube, usually clear, sometimes black, attached. Pull this tube off and replace it with your short tubing. Blow a bit of pressure into the switch using your mouth, and listen for a click, then another when you release the pressure. Hear two clicks? Good! The switch is probably OK

Plug the washer back in (being aware that components in the console are now 'hot' - live electric, use extreme caution , u can be SHOCKED), and start the washer filling again. With it filling, again blow a bit of pressure into the switch. If the switch is good, the fill should stop and the machine should start to agitate.

This verifies that the pressure switch is working, and causes us to suspect the pressure tubing or a clogged port/dome to which it connects. Wipe off the end of the original tube you removed from the switch, and blow into it. You're blowing air down into the tank now, and you should feel very little restriction. If it is very hard or impossible to blow through this tube, the tank dome or port is clogged.

Really old Maytags were known for this, and if you have one, spin out all water, remove the 'Corbin' clamp from the pressure tube outside of the tank and pull the tube off. (Pull washer front off - 2 Phillips screws at bottom, then two 3/8 in. hex screws release top, which swings upward) You will probably see 'gunk' clogging both the rubber tubing and the 'spud' that is a part of the tank. The hose ***'y can be taken to a sink and flushed clean with hot water, and an old toothbrush used to clear the tank spud, which, in the Maytags, is about 3/4 in. ID.

Very important: WHENEVER THE PRESSURE TUBE IS REMOVED, BEFORE REINSTALLING IT, BE SURE ALL WATER HAS BEEN SPUN OUT OF THE WASHER! Otherwise, the water fill level will be incorrect and you'll be back in trouble.

Hotpoint washer over filling


Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. You need to replace the water level pressure switch. It's simple to replace, just remove the knob from front panel and gain access to the rear of control panel. You will see the water level pressure switch from the backside. It has a flexible rubber tube attached to it. Just remove the rubber tube and the wires making note of location of wires. Install new switch and re-install wires and when re-installing rubber tube, be sure to moisten nipple on new switch before you re-install the rubber tube. moistening the nipple before re-installing the rubber tube will insure an air tight seal. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

I have the valve for the water now how do i change it


If you are talking about replacing the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG washer and turn off water supply.
2. Disconnect water inlet hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws in the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
4. The inlet valve will be located in the left-rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Remove the dispenser hose and electrical connections from the water inlet valve, followed by the mounting screw(s). The valve should easily come out of the washer. NOTE: Accessing the valve from the rear or left side of the washer access easier.
5. Install new valve in the reverse order of the steps I provided. Make sure you get the dispenser hose connected correctly so it does not leak AND make sure the electrical connections are not crossed (they should be marked HOT or COLD - if not, label them BEFORE removing.)
6. Connect water supply lines making sure they are not crossed. If you have the original manufacturer's hoses, they will be marked RED for hot and BLUE for COLD. It's also printed on the back of the washer.

Read through the instructions and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this answers your question.

Water heater heats but not to same temperature


Try shutting off the gas, shut off the water, and drain the tank to remove any sediment that may interfere with heat transfer from the burner. If that doesn't do it, check the dip tube to make sure it is still intact. The dip tube directs incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank and the hot water is tapped from the top of the tank. If neither of those turn out to be the problem, check the thermo-couple. Since a gas water heater typically survives about 6-9 years, you may be better off just replacing it.
