Why does washer stop agitating after few minutes?

Check for something caught in the pump or under agitator.
Check that the belt underneath is free running.
This fault is usually associated with excessive current & the motor going out on the auto reset overload.
Could be motor trouble, starting capacitor (If fitted) or the timer.

Freezer is not deforsting

If your model you listed is a TFX27PRBWW it will have a defrost timer located in the fresh food compartment and behind the controls. It's location is 257 in this photo HERE I would like you to turn the timer clockwise slowly until youi hear the compressor and fans stop. This should put the refrigerator into defrost if the defrost heater is still working. Did you hear any crackling or sizzle when place into defrost this way? Wait up to 35 minutes for the timer to come out of defrost and it should restart the refrigerator compressor and fans. If it does not come on automatically then simply turn the timer slowly clockwise again until they do restart. If you need to turn timer again to start refrigerator you will need to replace the timer=> WR9X489 Defrost Timer

If the defrost timer is not the problem then we move to the freezer side, remove the rear panel of freezer and defrost the frost covering the evaporator as in this photo HERE The model TFX27PRBWW takes a=> WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly

and the defrost thermostat=> WR50X122 Defrost Thermostat

The defrost heater is location 230 and the defrost thermostat is location 24 in this photo HERE Instructions in testing these parts are located on the parts pages I listed above. Please let me know if the model number is different than the one above your post so I may help you better, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a Kenmore upright freezer model# 253.9260210. We noticed that our food was starting to thaw. I opened up the coil area and noticed a small piece of ice on the coils. I melted the ice and turned...

Feel top of the compressor and tell me how hot after it has been running awhile. I need also that you advance the defrost timer=>. 216517400 Defrost Timer

clockwise slowly untill the compressor stops or starts. I need to make sure the timer is not stuck into defrost. I want you to leave the compressor off for up to 35 minutes. If the freezer compressor doesn't restart bt then simply again turn the timer clockwise slowly until it does and then stop turning. The defrost timer is location 23 in this photo HERE If you need to turn the defrost timer like this to restart the compressor then replace the defrost timer and this will resolve the freezing problem. If not we move to the defrost heater location 14 in the sme photo=> 216254600 Defrost Heater

I am going to stop here until I hear from you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Refrigerator an freezer has stop cooling, fan still running

This could be simply the defrost timer is stuck in defrost. I see you mentioned fan but stopped there. If one fan has stopped I need to know before we do these steps Click Here=> Maytag MTF2155GRW Control Panel item number 15 is the defrost timer and should have a hole below it entering the fresh food compartment. Sometimes there is a plastic plug covering hole to hide its opening. Pry plug away and use a flathead screwdriver to turn timer clockwise until compressor either stops or starts. If the compressor stops leave like this for up to 30 minutes. This should be manual defrost. and if it does not come out of defrost gently turn timer again slowly until compressor restarts. If you need to do this the timer will need replaced. Part number=> 68233-3 Now if both candensor and evaporator fans are running I believe you may just have a problem with your start relay/overload part=>12002782 and run capacitor part=> 65889-4 The top of compressor will be very hot if that is the case. Here is a photo location=> Maytag MTF2155GRW Compressor Components number 4 and 6 in photo. If any fans do not work they must be repalaced, Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...

Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.

My refrigerator is not getting cold. The freezer freezes good and water is dripping from the inside of the refrigerator onto the shelves what is causing that?

That is condensate,. We need to see if your refrigerator is defrosting normally. Want you to find the defrost timer in photo below is a description and location. The #4 in photo is the defrost timer providing the model number above your post is correct. There should be a small round hole through the control panel to turn the defrost timer slowly clockwise until the compressor stop. When stopped this should put your refrigerator in defrost mode. Defrost should take about 25 minutes or little longer. If refrigerator does not restart turn the timer slowly again until the compressor restarts. If you need to restart this way the timer will need replaced. During defrost the freezer area will produce sounds of crackling and sizziling of water dripping down onto the defrost heater. If no sounds let me know the results and I will instruct you on what to do next. Sea breeze

Defrost timer

The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

What you think it means is exactly what it does mean. When a running unit is shut off it should not be restarted until the system pressures have had time to balance out so the compressor can restart without difficulty.
