DO I NEED AN EXHAUST FOR THE WASHER?

I JUST MOVE IN TO A NEW HOUSE WITH AN EXISTING WASHER/DRYER. THE WASHER HAS A HOT/COLD INLET AND A
DRAINAGE HOSE. THERE IS ALSO A PIPE COMING FROM THE FLOOR AND GOES TO THE DRAIN. THE PIPE WAS ACCIDENTALY CUT AND WENT DOWN BELOW THE FLOOR. THE ONLY WAY TO PULL IT OUT IS TO BORE A HOLE ON THE FLOOR. IS THIS PIPE REALLY NECESSARY FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF THE WASHER? I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF WASHER INSTALLATION AND THIS IS THE FIRST I SAW THIS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

THANKS!

The drain pipe must be repaired or you will have water in the house when you use the washer.

Why the piolet does not lile inmy Ge wall oven when turned on


Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.
Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?
Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.
Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.
Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

Oven only works when house is cold


all gas range ignitors have to be just hot enough. i would say put an amp clamp meter on it. if it draws over 2.8 amps its probably good. if under that its bad and replace it.

Wont drain


Be sure the drainage hose is clear. Grease and food can block it. Check the drainage pump. It will be at the drainage exit. The motor may be bad or it could have something on the pump blades that keep it from turning. ( especially if you hear it humming when it tries to empty)

Convection oven blowing cold air


If your fan is blowing cold air, it's the air inside the oven that circulates. It has nothing to do with the fan. Convection circulates the existing air in the oven. Sounds like you might deselect the convection setting if this continues to happen. We have parts, so please let us know if we can help any further. :>)
