Did he check the water valve first to assure that hot water is going into the machine through the water valve you can check this buying using a multimeter and checking the voltage going to the vavle and disconnecting the hose on the inside of the machine to assure that hot water is coming in through the vavle please write me back with your finds thanks again

    Also check the pump for any clogs in the line before and after the pump if the water is not able to leave the tub then this could also cause the problem due to the clothing being to wet when the load is finished? I await your reply thanks

    I have checked the pump and there are no clogs in the line is there anything else I can check.

    By checking the pump did you also check the flow of water coming out of the drain line as well if the flow is restricted then water is not leaving the machine how it should also your drain outlet should always be 6 inches above the top of the machine as well to maximize the pumps ability of pushing the water outward as well. How much water is left inside the tub during this two hour run time? Is the unit going into the spin function as well? have you assured that the impellar on the pump is spining? I await your reply
    Thank you

    also you can perform a continuity test or ohms test on the element as well as the thermostat as well to assure the water is getting to tempreture if either are not functioning then the water would not be heating.
    I await your reply

Fridge and freezer at 50 degrees with settings on max cold. I can hear compressor cycling and all power is on. Suggestions?

Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:

Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.

Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.

Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.

Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.

Hope this helps...

What is your water temp. This model has 4 automatic water heat cycles built in to it and it heats the water to 145 degrees and won't let advance till that temp. If the water coming in is lower than 120 degrees it will add about 2 hours to your normal wash cycle.

Dishwasher takes hours to run through wash and dry cycle. what should normal cycle time be?

2 to 6 hours is possible. The newer machines have a water heat cycle that will raise the water temperature. lets say your incoming water is 90 degrees. The machine want to see 140 -165 depending on the cycle so that cycle will take 75 minutes to reach 165 (1 min per degree temp rise). multiply that by the number of wash and rinse cycles and it can run a very long time. Water should enter the washer at 120 degrees minimum. let it fill and measure the temp you will be surprised. Eric

The washer takes forever to complete it will take

front load washsher do take longer to wash than top load but it should not take 2 hours on a short cycle. has it always done this

Runs forever! even on Normal !!

The most obvious failure would be the mechanical timer that is behind / part of the knob used to select the cycle.

But, you may want to inspect the heating element in the sump area -- some dishwashers will wait (and wait) for the water temp to come up high.

Good Luck!

Fisher pakel washer taking too long to wash clothes

How long does it take to fill the tub? if the water, on warm stteting, isn't blasting out fast or if, when set to cold, it's trickling out, your cold water valve is shot. I can help with this problem 'cause I had the same experiences you listed.
