    I just now fixed mine by putting a heating pad on the LED display for about 10 minutes. YEA!!!! Good luck. Our power has been out for 7 days...same thing happened this fall when we were w/o power for 8 days.

    I had this same problem today. Magtag tech support had no answers for it. I found the heating pad solution shown here. I thought it was a joke. But.. I tried it and it works! The dryer is running just fine now.

How do I get the open door chime to stop on Kenmore Fridge?

I had this problem also. My problem was that the drainage tube that keeps the refrigerator compartment dry was plugged up with the foil backing used in the freezer compartment. This foil backing is used to line the closed cell foam which insulates the defrost heat fins from coming in contact with the plastic back panel. It took a service call from a local repairman two times to unplug the line. We peeled off the foil lining which was the source of the plug.

This solution stopped the "door open"/"instant freeze" cycle sound. My fridge is about 6 years old.

Hope this helps. Best wishes!

Why would my fuel gauge stop working

fuel sensor in the tank may be warn you can test to see if it is that by turning on and off the ignition if the gauge jumps. then it is the sender in the tank. under the carpet in the boot is a cover open this and you are at the tank it has a screw on cap and 4 wire on a plug going to it, remove the wires and the pipes for the pump and push to one side when you do this make sure you use a cloth as fuel will come out, before any work is done further it must be dry from fuel so leave it for awhile till dry. then undo the screw cap, ( dont do on a full tank of fuel) the top comes away a bit and unplug the wire on the other side this will give you more rum to get the sender out , it is clipped in at the top just squeeze the top and pull out, replace with new one and make sure its in place and dont move, this is the hard part now you have to make sure the wires dont get in the way when you have put the cap back on run the wire around the fuel line and up to the fuel top and plug the wires back in and re put the tank back to the way it was, it should be all working now.

My whirlpool gas dryer is having problems with heat. My clutch went bad on my washer and the clothes were coming out very wet. Then I noticed my dryer wasnt drying anymore. I have watched all the repair...

Check your dryer vent on the outside of your home first. There should be as much air coming out as comes out if you unplug the vent from your dryer and feel it there. It sounds like you have a clogged vent.

Amana side by side water in the door wpn't shut off. If I open the freezer door it will shut off. I have tried to unplug it and replug but that doesn't help. Model # ARS2667BS.

it sounds like the touch pad button is stuck in so it's like someone is always pushing on it,when the door opens the contact in the door switch stops the power to the board,when you close the door the power goes back to the can check this by disconnecting the ribbon that comes off the touch pad and plugs into the board,unplug the fridge then you can unplug the ribbon,when you plug the fridge back in if the water stops coming out you know the touch pad is bad,if the water still comes out then the board that the touch pad plugs into is can call your parts store and see if the touch pad comes with the board,i've found this problem on other machines and they sold everything together,but if the parts are sepatate do what i said,unplug the ribbon if the water stops the touch pad is bad,if it doesn't then it's the board that's can shut off the water at the valve that connects to the fridge if you haven't done that already and then do the tests .good luck.

Beeping won't stop and the F7 error code appears on the monitor

You may have got water into the control panel or cooktop causing an electrical short. Hopefully if you give a few days to dry out and plug it back in the code will be gone.

Drying clothes & the dryer just stopped & won't come back on

This is likely the thermal fuse on the heating element. You can check it with an ohmmeter. Also clean out your venting, as this often causes it to blow. Hope this helps!
