SOURCE: Water Leak

when you clamped it down you will have to add a 1/2 inch pipe ,about 5 inches is long enough.Use the pipe to clamp your hose to with adjustable clamps not Spring clamps.The pipe serves as a union here. Please rate this !

SOURCE: Noisey. when pumping ?

Have you checked with [assuming] your State's Attorney General Office? The third repair usually invokes the lemon law and requires that the supplier replace the entire dishwasher under warranty.

If you have not checked into that I would do that now and next.

This noise, from the pump, was the reason for the first replacement, or did it leak?

I cannot imagine them replacing a pump for noise, as noise, like hot, or cold is up to the individual what the parameters of PAIN are.

So let's suppose you cannot get a new dishwasher, and you have checked out the lemon law wherever it is you live, I will give you some technical answers and direct answers to your questions.

First, yes there may be a better pump, but these are generally not universal, the OEM pump is probably the only one that will fit, and should be the best available, anything aftermarket is generally not as good as the OEM [original Equipment Manufacturer].

I need more information on why the pump was replaced. Was it just noise? And did they run it in your presence after replacement, and did you buy off on it at that point? Then it got noisey again?

Now, next, a couple things could have happened, there could be noise baffles missing from the get go, or the first repair they left it out.

The pump could be cavitating, meaning there is not enough liquid, in the pump and it is swirling air.

Is the water pressure to spec, does the washer work or clean OK other than the noise?

There are so many possible reasons for noise from lack of water pressure, to missing baffles, to a bad product period, to the leveling is not right, to a clamp on a hose left off and when the machine calls for water the hoses slap or bounce.

This is going to be tough to settle over the phone, or email.

I would go to the seller and ask the same question then report back here, but before arm yourself with any lemon law data, and you could end up with a new washer for no charge.

There really are not huge differences in two pumps like this that would create noise, if there are two choices or more.

A pump could be made cheaper, the seals could fail quicker, but the noise thing, I doubt is a quality issue, something else is going on.

SOURCE: i am a licensed plumber

I can see from what you have described (by the way it is a very clear and precise description which is very helpful), there is a problem in the water circulation system. These dishwashers use an alternating water flow method to split the water circulation between lower and upper wash arms in alternate cycles.

The way it is done is by use of a small ball that reciprocates between two holes in the water distributor. See item 58 in this diagram. It is possible this ball is blocking the pump impeller and causing the grinding noise.

You will have to open the assembly and check it out. You may need to replace some of the parts if the damage is too severe as there is a degree of precision required for the water jet to go through the right contour to create the flow.

Good luck. Take photographs at each stage so that you know what goes where.

Desperately searching for User Manual for Tappan Wall Oven Model 12-4990-00-04.


Hello Owner, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you need the use and care manual for your Tappan wall oven, 12-4990-00-04. If the model is older than ten years old manufacturers will not keep that information available. You might be able to perform a search for antique models online for any additional information. -Matt

I thought my water lines was frozen but after heating water line the pump won't kick on I can manually push the points on and the pump will run but won't stay on by itself and still doesn't pump water


The pump will probably need to be primed. Look for a drain plug at bottom of pump casing remove it and see if there is water coming out. You will need to get into the discharge side of pump to refill with water. Once you see water coming out of drain then replace and fill pump and line to where you broke into line (union joint). Then try pump once again..

It is starting to make loud grinding noises


Hello,

It does sound as if you have an issue with the pump it may have broken glass or some sort of debris that has already done internal damage to the pump impellor,especially if the noise has been there for a while.The one option is an inspection of the pump for wear or blockage.Hope this has helped.

Good Luck.

My Frigidaire upright freezer is only 4 years old & isn't working


freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit

Squealing sound


We have had the same problem and upon removing the main circulation pump, I found that the housing had come apart and had to order a new pump and install it. But the problem did stop there. The pump that discharges the dirty water has two stainless steel ball bearings in it and was worn out. So now I have to replace this pump also..... this needless to say, will be my last fridgidaire dishwasher. The unit is not ever six years old and might be used once a week.

It's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!
