Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

OK, so this might be older than the models I've read other's problems on. It's model 417 41042000 that's what it says inside the door. The washer gets stuck, or stops working before the spin. It makes a noise like it's working or trying to, but doesn't spin. If I reset it on the final spin section, or just before it, it'll put in new water, then drain some, but never kick into a spin. We took out most of the load, to leaving a 4 or 5 items in it, then took off front, agitated it a bit and it did go back and forth, then do a spin, even a fast spin, draining all the while... then tried again with the rest... nothing happened. Tried to help agitate it, thinking balance was off or motor weak and going out... but nothing. It worked once, but not again. I think it's motor... it does sound a bit different, but with front off, and watching it so closely ... not sure. I did loads in a row yesterday... have three young kids, so have another 3 loads waiting... help!

Older model keyless will not open new craftsman garage opener.

inside or on the back of the opener motor housing or sometimes on a remote receiver (an external box connected to the motor unit and a push button) is a set of switches ... if you take your opener apart you should also see a set of switches ... those have to be set the same way as the opener ... thats the code select ... make sure the battery is ok .. you can check with sears to see if your older remote is compatable ..

Door won't open at end of cycle

Thank You for contacting
The most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.
also worth checking the spring inside the door lock mechanism attatched to the door, as these can become dislodged.
To open the door you will either require an engineer as the repair necesitates the removal of the lid. The engineer will ensure the machine is disconnected from mains of course. He will double check power is off before reaching down inside the machine to press over the door latch, which is just visible as a white pointed object, poking through the door mechanism. The engineer will push it towards the door seal.
Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.

Have a nice day.

Washer not spinning

You're problem is probably the door latch assembly. This is a common problem on Frigidaire front load washers. You can find the part at your local appliance parts suppliers. If the door latch assembly is faulty, the washer will run through all of its normal cycles, but will not spin. Hope this fixes the problem for you.

Soap dispenser will not open

Hello Wilbursdad
Welcome to fixya.

You said, Whirlpool mod# DU850DWGQ1. You took off inner door cover and replaced spring #3368999, the end of it had rusted off and broke. Replacing the spring did not fix the problem. The plastic mechanism inside the door seems to work properly when you manually operate it, but when you reassemble it the door still never opens. Help!!!

It appears to be a 2000 dishwasher model.

Unfortunately I did not meet you soon enough to stop you!!!!!!!!
If the springs rusted and broke, you are putting good money into bad.
I do not like to be the bearer of this news, but more than the springs are bad here!

You need to read this report that I just read before you sink your money into this model!
You may be spending all your time replacing parts soon!


Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old washer

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

My advice is cut your losses !
Sorry, but maybe you will get lucky if you repair it!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
