Anything i really need to know before i attempt to do it myself?

Hello again, oldfixer guru, lol , I am as you may have read my reply to your post to me, i am going to attempt to order the part as one unit lol and fix it myself, is there anything in your expertise, remember be patient with me I am a girly girl, that you think I should know to do, I know I should always unplug the washer before attempting to do any repairs (I am only repair challenged), is there anything else you suggest I saw that there were also hoses but these hoses seem fine, although i havent taken the back of the machine apart yet, the valves are covered by the entire back plate of the machine I am already overwhelmed thinking about seeing the guts of the machine...scarey,,,so let me know the no nos and never evers before I go to the front lines........thank you again oldfixer,sincerely and wobbley knees hands shaking and brave all in one, Tamara

Actually shouldn't be that hard i'm assuming that is just washer not a stacked washer/dryer..get a putty knife (or dull butter knife)press release clips along top edge of washer top lifts up with top as far back as possible you should be able to reach into corner where valve is ..remove rear mounting screws in valve ..pull valve up where you can get to it remove wires then small hose ..reverse for reassembly..where do you live ..i could retire next week with the prices you're being quoted

I'm trying to reconnect the high speed switch on my Pride Legend Classic XL8 but I do not know which connections to use. There is one marked PWRSEAT and 1 JPN, also 2 blank wires. Can anyone help?

Hello Simon, you as do many other people attempt jobs unsure of what you are really doing, I have done so myself. What I learned was, some things are better left to who knows what they are doing. This is only my opinion and I do not know everything, this was posted a while ago. But for anyone reading this and does decide to undertake jobs, why not do so with the assistance of a paid Expert here on Doing a job and then contacting a repair shop, because you are stuck. Could be met with them not even wanting to look at the fault. I am Registered Severely Disabled myself and know what it is like to be stuck without your tool for getting you out and about. I hope as many people as can be gain from this. Remember also, everything you do. It would pay to take a picture via your mobile, so you can relate back to it. Take care all who care for others.Colin

The dishwasher still cleans OK but we suddently hear a loud sound. I decided to disassemble the thing so I took every plastics off, unscrewed every screws I found, until I found large wooden tooth picks...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post (which indicates it is a Kenmore dishwasher) you appear to have a noise concern, however if you could verify the machine is indeed a kenmore and possibly provide the entire model number I would be much better equipped to help without generalizing.

Initialy based on your post, it could be more debris further down in the impeller or chopper, but it really depends on the style of the machine, model number is located around the door opening ...


Good luck, I find this link to be quiet helpful on the majority of Whirlpool/Kenmore/Kitchenaid style dishwashwers.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help going forward. Thank you.

My Thermador SC301T oven has following problem: Did the self-cleaning cycle. Upon completion (well not sure it completed what it was doing) kept getting an F7 error reading...could not get it to go away. ...

Hello, I just saw you actually had created your own post, but not until after I had replied to your question from an earlier post of mine. This is how I replied...

Unfortunately the only way I know to open the oven door when in the lock position and it is inactive is a clothes hanger method. With the odd exception of resetting the house breaker which initiates the start-up watch-dog sequence...this rarely works, though it's worth a try.

This of course is an exercise in patience as it will most often take many attempts to pull the lock to the right while pulling the door forward at the right moment so it opens.

I can possibly provide the service manual, however it is too large to attach here so you'd need to provide an email address I can send it as an attachment.

I'll watch for your reply. Please confirm your model number as they are not all the same and the service guides vary depending on the model number.
