Hi Donna,

There is a coupling that breaks eventually. You may consider having a tech come over and give an opinion on whether that is the issue or not. Old does not mean dead, and new machines are quite pricey, as you porbably know.

I have a bosch 7801 dishwasher that is 12 years old and is not heating the water? I presume that this is the heating element so is it worth fixing or should I buy a new one?


The new ones don't have a heating element. They tell me the US government doesn't allow them anymore because it's not "energy efficient". My 20-year old Kenmore washed better than my one-month old Bosch. Fix it if you can!

Fridgidare washer front load won't spin & there's water in the tub. It's about 10 years old


If it's that old, you're better off buying a new unit. You'll spend about half the cost of a new one fixing it.

Drum will not spin


did he run the diagnostics per the tech sheet within the machine?if it will do everything else but spin out,then the drain pump is plugged,as a plugged drain pump will shut down these front load units,you will need to remove hoses off pump and clean out pump and all hoses from tub to drain stand pipe,by running the diagnostics you can run each washer cycle and see what cycle isnt performing in a matter of 5 minutes versus 1 hour real wash time on some cycles

Excessively noisy when it spins. The faster the spin the noisier it gets.


Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........

10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even...


At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement. Replacing the valve is a simple and inexpensive fix but don't bother going further than that. If you can't DIY it's not worth spending the money for a service call. Kenmore has a wide range of units at various price levels all built by the major players. I have an 8 year old Kitchenaide (made by Whirlpool) that is very quiet and still runs like new. A new unit will wash better and probably use less energy. If you buy an "EnergyStar" rated model you may qualify for a rebate as well.

Do you hear the motor running? It may just be a broken belt. If it is in fact the motor it can be replaced.

My Bosch Exxcel 1400S Express (WFX148SGB) just doesn't spin anymore. Everything else seems to work fine?


Bummers. Sounds like the clutch is out. (If you can hear the motor spinning but not the drum, I'd say that's it. Especially if the machine has a number of years on it.)

I once looked into having a service man come fix a clutch. He said it would be cheaper to buy and new washing machine and have the old one hauled away.

Good luck.

Kenmore wash machine will not spin


Eight years is getting kind of old. When the clutch or transmission goes out, it costs more to replace the part than to buy a new washing machine. You'd better plan a shopping trip rather than spring for that $100.

Kenmore washing machine


When the transmission or clutch goes bad, it costs less to buy a new washing machine than to get the old one fixed. It's just possible that you could take it apart, lubricate it, and get it to spin properly. But if the machine is several years old, I'd recommend a shopping trip rather than springing for a service call.
