Why is my dehumidifier very noisy?

I would guess that some rubber anti-vibration mounts have aged. If so this may allow the cooling fan to move and grate on the fan housing. It is unusual for the hermetic compressor to give trouble but having just said that, on rare occasions the big-end bearing can fail. This would cause a very obvious knocking noise coming from the compressor. Its just a case of carefully opening up the dehumidifier housing and looking to see what is happening. As an aide-memoire one can tape all the screws to a piece of cardboard adding notes as to where they came from. Take care and good luck!

Hayward super pump won't prime

Priming issues are almost always due to a bad gasket or loose fitting.
  1. Remove the leaf trap lid. Examine the gasket for debris, cuts or folds that might prevent a tight seal.
  2. Remove and examine the winter plugs for proper seal.
  3. Remove, re-tape or putty the threaded fitting directly in from of the pump.
  4. Check all unions, fittings and connections from the skimmer and main drain to the pump.
  5. On rare occasions the impeller may be impacted with debris preventing water flow. Remove the four screws holding the motor to the wet end exposing the impeller and examine it. Hayward impellers are also know to break at the shaft. This will sound like the pump is operating but never pumping water.
  6. If everything looks normal, try pouring water over the entire wet end while priming. This will sometimes allow water to fill a void you missed. The pump will probably loose prime again until the issue is corrected.

Kenmore elite makes loud grinding noise with larger loads like a comforter. Ok with normal loads

It is so common that the washing machine can maketerrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it isimportant that your observation is most important and so is vital to theidentification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine isvibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to beinspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine itis important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manuallyturn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, thedrum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions whichinclude the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to bein correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of themounting is also very important. Finallyin most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solvemost issues.Check this link : of bearings check for tips on this visual link:

What is the black box above the throttle body, and what does it mean if it's making grinding sounds?

Throttle Position Sensor if it has a single plug that connects to it. If its making grinding sounds the contacts inside may be wearing out. You would notice your idle jump around or it being tricky to start occasionally but sometimes in rare occasions it shows no symptoms until it completely fails. Here is a pic of what the TPS looks like.
