Kitchen Aid washing machine

Suddenly, our 10 year old washing machine is leaving white undershirts with a blue-green stain around "sweaty" areas, heck and upper back. Is the problem more likely from the municipal water, or the washing machine? If it's Copper, how do you clean the washer?

Re: Kitchen Aid washing machine

If its only around one area, that sounds like some sort of chemical reaction with saline, otherwise known as Salt, which sweat would leave on clothing more in those specific areas. Try changing your detergent, first off, as that might help out. If the problem persists, do a spot check with the municipal water from another faucet as compared to the water from the washer(run it without detergent), to see if its only changing due to that faucet. I've not really seen this problem before, and have to say it sounds odd, but it does sound like a detergent problem. On the offchance that its not, check the water, then if possible, take the clothing to a laundromat, to see if the same thing happens there, locally. At least then you'll know if the pipes or washer are doing this specifically.

Waffles sticking to plate. Unit over 10 years old.

It probably needs to be carefully and thoroughly cleaned with a gently detergent to remove any build-up that is preventing the release of the waffles. If the teflon coating is damaged it will have to be replaced or revert to the use of a release spray when using the unit.

Why does the waffle stick to the maker and how do you clean it???

Waffle pans are seasoned through usage. If you clean the pans too well, they won't work right. It's a bit like cooking with a cast iron skillet. If you wash it with soap and water, you strip the oils off of it, and it will rust.
Use some Pam or similar product when you get ready to make your waffles. Spray the lower pan, add your batter, and then spray the upper pan. Close the waffle maker up quickly after spraying the upper pan.
To clean off old material, it's easiest to scrape it off with a nylon scraper, taking care not to score the metal. A bit of the cooking spray will help on the most stubborn baked on material.
I personally prefer to use the batter that requires the addition of cooking oil, and I still spray the pans as well. This leaves me with a seasoned waffle making machine.
When you've finished with the waffle machine, wipe down the outer surfaces with warm soapy water, followed by clean water. Clean the pans the least you can. Usually, if the waffles are leaving little to no residue, we just wipe the pans clean with a paper towel, and then put it away.
By the way, the first waffle in any given batch seems to never be as good as the ones that follow. We call this one the "sacrificial waffle" and move on. Our dogs appreciate it!
Best regards. Hope that you found this somewhat helpful. --W/D--

Our fridge, SIDE BY SIDE BUILT-IN REFRIGERATOR-kitchen aid KSRT25CRWH01 freezer is working but not refrigerator, How do fix it

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Heating element

I personnally just went through this.

If it is less than one year old, and you have the receipt, go to the waring site, and look up the nearest dealer for repair and bring it to them. They should be able to contact waring for you and get you a replacement.

My replacement had a silver body virsus the original black body. The shop told me they have yet had a customer repeat of this problem.

Belgian Waffle Maker Problem

Here is what is happening, and if you're out of warranty and so inclined how to easily fix it yourself.

Make sure you are unplugged from the wall before doing anything or you will get shocked. You do not need to take the bottom cover off the base. You do not need to take the top plate apart (they super glued one screw in the top plate (lid), you'll strip out the screw head trying to remove it anyhow). All you need to open is the bottom plate, it has 4 screws in it you will see when you open the lid, these screws are not super glued and will come out. 2 on each side in the back, 2 in the center of the front, long screws go in the back, short in the front.

There are 2 white wires, 1 black wire, 1 green wire that run up the neck of the waffle maker to heat the top and bottom heating elements. The 2 white wires are neutral, the green wire is a ground, the black wire is power.

This black wire runs from the electronic control board in the base of the unit, up the neck in the rear, through a thermal fuse, to the bottom element then jumps up to the top element. All you need to take apart is the bottom plate, the part you pour the batter into. It has 4 screws you will see when you open the top plate up, take those out and you are going to find the black wire is covered by a white rubber like tube about 3 inches long. In the center of this rubber insulation there is a metal clip with a single screw. Take that screw out, pull off the metal clip and slide (don't cut) the rubber like insulation back.

You will find the black wire is crimped onto a silver metal bullet looking component. This component is called a "thermal fuse", its designed to fail at 240 degrees C. Its obviously a design flaw and the thermal fuse is under rated for the actual heat within the device. Its also a one shot fuse, so when it blows it kills power on the black wire from going to the top and bottom plates, thus no heat. It is not resettable.

I didn't even cut mine out (Waring is very skimpy with their wire, they don't leave you even a hint of extra wire to work with). I just tightly twisted the bare metal wire on each side of this component like a bread tie leaving the blown fuse in place. Then be sure to slide the rubber like insulation back over all of the bare metal so it is covering the black wire on both sides. If you don't it will short out and blow your house circuit breaker when you turn it on.

This thermal fuse was probably a requirement of the UL Listing. Its over kill, everything in there is metal so if it over heats in that area there is nothing flammable to burn. If a run away temperature occurs the wire itself will melt, short out and trip your house breaker. There are stacks of these units brand new with this same problem anyone reading this is having, the thermal fuse is under rated, the fix is simple.

WMK300 turns on but doest not heat up

the problem is an open thermal fuse. This fuse is located in the fixed grill; it is clamped to the grill and is covered by a white plastic sleeve.

The replacement part should be a 240°C/464°F 10 - 15 Amp thermal fuse. NTE sells a part NTE8242 which works available from for $1.41 plus shipping.

Waffle maker keeps popping the breaker panel.

Sorry but it sounds like your waffle maker is toast. It may have shorted in the plug. If you haven't already done so, take it back or contact the maker for a warranty repair.
