Eaton Viking Washing Machine

Hello

I have an older moder eaton viking washing machine (duo wash system, heavy duty) and it has sucked a shirt under the agitator and I can't get it out. I was wondering if there is a way to lift the agitator to get the shirt out without breaking the machine.

Any assistance with this would be great.

Usually on these machines on the very top of the agitator is a snap-on lid, usually for adding bleach or fabric softener. Unsnap this lid and lift from the top of the agitator. Look down the hole and you should see some kind of nut or screw. Remove this item (make note as to how tight it is JUST AFTER it breaks free). Once this is removed, you should be able to lift the agitator out of the machine. Remove your shirt, and replace the agitator. Replace the nut or screw previously removed, and tighten approximately as tight as it was when removed. Don't over tighten. Replace snap-on lid.

With the unit apart, now might be a good time to clean any accumulated dirt or other foreign material.

Eaton viking imperial electric,stove oven door will not close completelty; circa 1996. are replacement hinges still availible?


To the owner of the Eaton Viking stove RS3028W-1, yes you CAN get replacement hinges!
I too, have this stove model (circa 1996) with exactly the same problem and I have spent the past 18 months looking for replacement oven hinges. I was very frustrated at the thought of having to throw out a stove that cooks and bakes wonderfully and has not needed any repairs till now and having to buy one of the new subpar ones that constantly need repairs. Plus you can't do canning on the new stoves and the few remaining coil models are extremely poorly made.
I have found 2 places that carry the hinges.
1. Reliable Parts, 1-800-663-6060. This company is located in Montrea (St. Leonard), Quebec.
2. Appliance Shark, 1-800-663-1176. This company is located in Barrie, Ontario.
The part number for the hinge is: 318-024-741

I hope this is helpful, and may you have many more years of happy cooking on this great stove.

I have an eaton viking washing machine, the agitator has quit working but it still goes thru the time cycles. door switch still good but the motor has a humm but does not spin. trans still turn by han


You need to drain it, A wet and dry vac works good for this. Then unhook it and unplug it and lay it down so that you can see the bottom. There is a motor there and you need to make sure that the wires that connect ot it are ok. If the machine has been run and it was off balance it might have broken the wire that makes the motor spin.

Replacing the belt on an older Eatons Viking Washing machine.


Sorry I checked everywhere and DO NOT have any diagrams for this model.  their are basically 2 types of tensioners.. the first is a sprung tensioner and the second is a slide tensioner. and Some have a slide bracket on the motor mount itself.. and I would bet this is the kind you have.. check the motor mount to see if there is a way to adjust the motor.. Sorry I couldnt help more

Eaton viking dishwasher


it may not be the pump.if it leaks when you run a wash cycle then the pump seal may be bad but if it only leaks when you drain it,it seems that its a drain hose/piping connection.
