    I should say, it's like there is no power to the dryer. Nothing turns or comes on.

    First, check to see if the door switch makes a "click" when you push and release it. If it does, then the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/XmDBgM

SOURCE: HE4 Kenmore Dryer tripping Circuit Breaker

If you put a light load in the dryer will not trip the circuit at all. That means heavy load made the motor work harder and over heat, it going to trip the circuit , pretty soon, the motor will be warn out.

If the dryer is still powered on but the motor stops, it sounds like the over load in the motor is cutting out and the motor will have to be replaced.

If the drier drum is still turning I would suspect a separate fuse is open for the heating element. Checking this may require openning the back cover. It may also be a defective or open heating element.

SOURCE: Dryer does'nt run. checked breaker, thermal fuse, starter relay, timer stops when door is opened, starts when closed?

2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike

How to change 2004 mdx cabin air filta


The older the Acura/Honda, the more difficult this is. The 2nd generation MDX takes 2 minutes to replace, yours isn't that easy. 2 philips head screws hold the glove box hinges in. Pull the right kick panel cover off first, to get access to the right screw. If this is the 1st time it has been replaced, cut out the plastic in front of the bracket that holds the glove box. There are slots on each ent to make it easy. Then some unscrew the bracket. Remove it and the CAF cover is right there. Have patience, getting the 2 hinge screws back in takes some finesse. There is a short cut to this job, but I would have to show you.

GE refrigerator model GSH25KGRB # HG256690 NO WATER OUT DOOR.


I use a hair dryer to defraust the door. This refrigerator is very sensitive to tempature change. When it gets cold out and you have the tempature on high, the water freezes in the door.

I cover the opening of the freezor with a piece of plastic cut to fit. I tape it in place with blue tape. I tape the door switch down so the you can test the water to see when it is running again. I use the hair dryer With the door open I concentrate the heat on the right side center section. It usually takes about thirty minutes. I put a glass in the water compartment and I try the water every few minutes until it flows. Finally, I run the water for two or three minutes after it starts to flow to make sure all of the frozen water is clear. Thom

RE: ge gsd2000j01ww When I opened my dishwasher after a run... I found a white large belt (rubber band like) on the top shelf. I have no idea where it belongs


At the bottom of the dishwasher (older GE) you see a plastic cover with rounded corners and two 'grill' shaped sides. Remove the screws (1\4) and lift the cover. There might be a huge amount of grey clog and dirt stuck on the inside already. Remove it with a fork or long brush and rinse it. There is another grill in the water hole pull it out and clean it as necessary. You may also want to reach into and check the water hole for debris. If you are not comfortable doing so you can remove the water by pushing an old towel into the hole first. Once all parts are clean put them back in place and fix the cover with the screws. Pour 2-3 table spoons of bleach into the machine and let it run twice on heavy duty cycles.

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.
