Question about Washing Machines

Karcher 615 (bought new in 1994!)

Hi, my karcher recently after many years of good behavior started to...choke!
i called my service and they said its probably a valve...which wasn't very helpful as i opened it up and saw that there were many one way valves...and much dirt too..
they also wanted me to give them 250euro for a full repair....

so my question is...WHAT KIND OF FUEL CAN I USE TO REFILL THE PUMP as it was filled up with oil when i opened it? should i use valvolines that are made for gearboxes or a thicker oil like sae 30??

thank in advance alex...greece

ONE YEAR OLD..CALL YOUR SERVICE CENTER FOR YOUR APPLIANCE,IF IT IS JUST ONE YEAR OLD,ITS UNDER WARRANTY AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO ANYTHING OR YOU WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
IF NOT SURE WHO TO CALL START WHERE YOU BOUGHT THE APPLIANCE..

Kenmore front load washer model 110


Hi delere, Huuum At your service!
This F30 is called a code or Error code.

With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.If you can not reach the plug then cut off the power instead at the breaker.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious but an electronic glitch.

Also there is something that every manufacturer does for their customers when there are multible service problems or they happen right after the warranty ends.
It is called in the industry a, "PUSH - PULL"

That means that even after the warranty if the unit is having a problem they will fix it or replace it for the customer at no cost!.
Now Sears dose not manufacturer but they can do the same thing and send so many appliances back to the maker! Or the maker gets no more Sears business!

If my suggestion of the error correction works , GREAT!!!
then give me a solved rating before you sign off!
But if not or you have any other problem soon, with this washer, here is the formula to follow!!!

SEARS PUSH PULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friends,
huuum At your service!

PERHAPS YOU GOT A LEMON!
WATCH MAGIC AS I TURN YOUR LEMON INTO A CHERRY!
Here is what you must do!

I do this a lot for my customers! We are a family business for over 65 years
READY??

You get together all the service invoices and organize your self with the sales slip and service slips and go into the Sears that sold it to you, right to the appliance department during the business day. And tell them you demand to see the store manager!

Then we are going to get them to fix it for free, or do a whats called a "PUSH-PULL"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You tell him when you bought it and how many times service has been to your rescue!
With documentation of dates.
.
Be calm, nice and reserved! BUT FIRM!

Some times I've told my customer that when it's past the end of the warranty that for good measure, Tell them,you want them to replace this lemon with a brand new machine!
Tell him or her......................
"I just took a loan to remodel my kitchen, and I have gutted the kitchen and found all my stainless steel Sears appliances that I am ready to purchase !
BUT, I cannot in good faith follow through with this buy until I see that Sears does indeed back up their product!

WARRANTY TIME MEANS NOTHING WITH DOCUMENTATION!

IT'S EASIER TO KEEP THE CUSTOMERS YOU HAVE THAN FIND NEW ONES TODAY!!!!!!
EVERY DAY THE MAJOR MANUFACTURERS ASK DEALERS TO DO A , "PUSH PULL".
THEY PAY US TO ORDER AND DELIVER AND PICK UP THE LEMON FOR RETURN TO THEM!
NO COST TO THE CUSTOMER!
Not even delivery.No matter what the dealer says to you about money!
No money, honey! Got me?
The companies forbid the dealers from taking any money from the push pull customer !
They pay us!!!
Unless you want to tip the guys on the truck.

Your going to love the service and being in control!
You are fine now!
All will be right!

JUST , NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS CALM, SMOOTH, QUIET, AND HAVE A NICE PLEASANT ATTITUDE. ANGER GETS US NOTHING!

I LOVE THIS!

MY COMPLIMENTS,
BLESS YOU!
huuum

Please do not forget to give me a good rating for getting you a new washer or they fix it after warranty anyway!


We started with appliances 65 years ago and still sell them TOO!







How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Piece if **** washing machine and dryer kenmore elite oasis


I called sears recall dept 1 888-548- 1509 told to make a service call about F problem and if that is the cause your charge for service call will be refunded and a new control board installed at known charge.The 27082 is not on the recall list yet but sears is aware of this condition.Don't give up just keep calling and ask that a copy of your call and complaint be forward to your address ,sears receives numerous call's each day about F1 control boards.

Cal them your self now and see if they will do this repair 1 888-548- 1509

Washer pauses at various points in all cycles


Peace friend,
ngfam1 at your service

Tell the dealer you want a different make!
IT'S EASIER TO KEEP CUSTOMERS THAN TO FINED NEW ONES!

We have been selling appliances for over 65 years!
And you will only see one GE appliance on my showroom floor!

Whirlpool or SPEED QUEEN! ARE THE BEST!

HERE IS MY STORY FOR YOU!


AFTER 6 YEARS AND THREE repairs.
I threw GE in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and, I AM 53 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS THE LAST WASHER I WILL EVER BUY!
tHEY ARE TESTED AT 8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, it is cheaper to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine! You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 48-54 gallons!


THE FRONT LOADER,

(GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No brainier Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!
