Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

Water heater not working to capacity

If the water heater isn't used all day, when hot water is required it has less than half the expected volume . even though the temperature is turned up all the way. If the hot water had been used several times throughout the day, washing, dish washing etc, it seems to have its full capacity. any idea ?

You most likely have two elements an upper and a lower. the upper is working and the lower is not. If there is two element there will be acess panels both high and low. cut off the power and open the lower one. You can feel the tank and see if it feel hot of just sort of luke warm. if it isn't hot the the thermostat or the element is out.

I have a frigidaire Dryer (4 years) model #AGQ7000ES1. The machine turns on but it won't heat. I ran all the diagnostic tests that the manual outlines and the test came up OK. No malfunctions. All air...

There are two 110 volt supplies to an electic dryer. One supply will supply all operations of the dryer save half of the heater ckt. The heater requires both 110 supplys for heater operation. Check if one of your two 110 dryer breakers in your house is "tripped" to off. If it works when you trip it back on good, if it only works temporarily then trips again, suspect a bad heater element drawing too many amps. Another possiblity is a weak breaker in the house breaker box, but usually if you get a reoccuring breaker trip its the dryer heater element pulling too many amps. Hope this helps.

Washers are more advanced and stylish than ever before. When you're buying a washer, look for features that make washing easier and more efficient, less costly, and kinder to fabrics. Thanks to advances in technology, it's all possible - and our washer buying guide shows you how.

Washer Types
Feature options, capacity, energy use and style are all factors to consider when deciding between a front- or top-loading washer.
oth top-loading and front-loading washing machines will do a good job of cleaning your clothes. The most significant differences between these types of washers are capacity, energy efficiency, water use, feature options, and style.

Top-loading machines

Traditional top-loading washing machines are available in a wide assortment of models, price ranges and styles. The most basic top-loading washers perform very well and are generally a good value for a no-frills, clean wash. Other top-loaders offer more cycle and temperature selections, spin speeds, and fabric care extras as they increase in price. Overall, top-loading washers are generally less expensive to purchase than front-loading machines, but are slightly more costly to run because they use more water and electricity.

Most top-loaders fill the tub with enough water to cover the clothing, then agitate them to get the clothing clean. Some manufacturers now offer high-efficiency top-loading washers using a number of different technologies. One such technology is the Whirlpool® Calypso® wash plate. Instead of agitating fabrics to get them clean, the wash plate moves them through a shower of concentrated detergent and water. The action is gentler on fabrics; it's designed to provide better cleaning with far less stress to garment fibers. And with the agitator out of the way, the washer has more room to clean bulky items such as comforters and rugs.

Standard capacity for a top-loading washing machine is 12 to 16 pounds per load. The Calypso wash plate model can hold up to 18 pounds of laundry (think the equivalent of 16 pairs of jeans).

Here is a link to some Whirlpool washers for you to look over.

I have a Bravo washer I have had since May and it isn't worth a ****.What can I do?? My clothes does not come clean and I have tried all different options on the machine..I have had techs here 3 times..

I feel your pain, front loaders are quickly becoming one of the great hoaxes of the millennium, second only to 401Ks

EVERY manufacturer has a Class Action Lawsuits against them.

I'm sure you have tried these to reduce suds, if you see suds, your clothes will not clean properly, seriously.

Use HALF of HE liquid detergent
Use HALF of the bleach
Use Half of the softener.
Never use powders
Leave the door open when the machine is idle.

I almost went out of business because of no work until front loaders came into vogue.

Now I do 6 calls a day; 7 days a week. Just my opinions here!

No cold water, just hot and warm wash

Cold water and hot water make warm water. Check water inlet valve for blockage or solenoid malfunction.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

Zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot

Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

Dryer trips breaker as soon as i try to start it.

Use or borrow a volt ohm meter and check for a grounded hot wire. You may also be exceeding the start up load on the 20 amp breaker. Test this theory (after you make sure that there are no ground faults) by starting the dryer in a "air fluff" mode without heat. If the dryer starts in the "no heat mode", switch the heat on - if you blow the breaker you know that the 20 amp breaker cannot handle it. Before you do any of the above - check your dryer manual for the service requirments. If you don't have the manual go to the mfg. web site and download it.

Condenser Dryer Still Filling Room With Moisture

all dryers produce moisture. thats what hapens when you heat wet cloths up. the dryers job is to remove the moisture to dry. thats how the automai]tic cycles work by deteting the moisture in the exhaust. i will say there is nothing wrong with your dryer. only thing i dont understand is the containers of water?
