Did you remove the top to clean recently? You may not of installed it correctly. Keeping the saftey switch from making contact. It thinks the top is still off and it won't run without the switch making contact. Try resetting the top a couple of times to insure the switch is tripped.

The first time I used my new pasta roller I seem to have burned up something in my Kitchenaid mixer. What happened?


First Question that comes to mind, is the motor even running. If it is and there is nothing visible moving, you probably stripped the gears in the head of the unit. If the motor doesn't run, the brushes may have coincidendally worn out. Need more information. Reccomend taking the top cover off while it is unplugged and checking the gears and brushes. The Plastic gear (When I got mine) was a bit pricey, but a lot cheaper than a new mixer. If you wore out the brushes, You may just want to consider a new machine since you evidently got a lot of use out of it. Almost everything is replaceable in the mixer

Whirlpool quiet partner I soap dispenser won't close


Hi


Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.


Hope this helps...

Whirlpool gas dryer: 120 volt plugged into a 220 volt plug. Dryer will no longer show power for machine. inside light does come on when plugged back into 120 volt receptacle. Has the dryer burnt up?


may have burned the motor out.... if this unit has a control board on it most likely would have shorted it out first if a standard/basic gas dryer will a timer knob then power would have either burned timer,or motor up first.... good luck to you that really stinks....

Sope dispenser will not open when running


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once power is applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power, the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element ( most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than full power to work and open.

Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability to bend properly and needs to be replaced. Older Kitchen-aid dishwashers used a mechanical arm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals. Newer (plastic liner) Kitchen-aid dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.

Actual model is WWA3650SALWH


JUST A QUICK SUGGESTION FOR YOU ... ON MOST WASHER MOTORS THERE IS A SMALL RESET BUTTON ON THE MOTOR ITSELF. TRY RESETING IT ... IF IT RESETS AND POPS RIGHT BACK OUT OR IS JUST FLOATING THE MOTOR IS MORE THAN LIKELY BAD OR ... YOU MAY ALSO HAVE A CAPACITOR START MOTOR. THE CAPACITOR IS UNDER A COVER ON THE MOTOR ITSELF THAT CAN BURN-OUT OR GO "OPEN CIRCUIT". THEY ARE REPLACEABLE. IT SEEMS YOU HAVE CHECKED ALL THE OTHER CULPRITS I USUALLY SUGGEST. I HOPE I COULD HELP OUT.
