Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Open Question

I purchased my GHW9400PT 4 years ago. Should I have it serviced - checking belts, electrical contact points, oiling motor etc? If so, how often is the ideal (the company says) and how often is realistic? It is making making some noise when extracting water - not grinding, not thumping, but more whirling. - might that be the belt?

Think about this for a moment....You already know you have a few bent valves. Valves are serviced by removing the cylinder head. That single fact tells you that the head needs to come off to do the repair.
Once you remove the head, you will be more able to inspect the remaining valves and piston tops, then with that information, decide if you can rebuild it. A compression test requires spinning the engine and risking further damage.

1994 Dodge Dakota Sport Standard Cab Pickup automatic, i have a new battery and when i turn the key everything turns on and you hear a part of the motor but it wont start, what should i look for?


Sometimes when fitting a new battery the terminals are not on really tight. First check that the contact face of the battery terminal cable clamps are bright metal. Clamp securely so that there is no movement between cable and terminal. Next check the condition of the earth return strap from the engine back to the vehicle's frame. Again ensure there is good fresh metal to metal contact and the it is secured firmly. Next check the connection on the starter motor...clean and secure again. If still no joy then it is time to check the starter motor. The most frequent fault in starter motors are worn striker contacts. When the solenoid is engaged is moves the starter motor armature forward to engage with the drive teeth on the edge of the fly wheel. At the point of engagement the electrical contacts of the motor coil core make contact with the copper striker plates. When they become worn then contact is lost. Make a note of the make and model of the starter motor and purchase a striker plate refurb. fit (about $10 from dealer or Autozone etc). disconnect the electrical cables to the solenoid and motor, remove the two securing bolts that hold the motor to the flywheel casing and remove the motor assembly. Undo the motor end retaining bolts and examine the striker plates. Change them one at a time, I say this as it is important that the order of insulation washers and nuts are in the correct order when reassembled - using the un-touched plate as a reference helps in this. Clean, but do not lubricate the interior of the motor - oil only serves to attract grime. Reassemble and reinstall the the motor assembly. Again ensure the electrical supply cables are clean and attached firmly.

What tuneup services should I be getting done on my 1999 Acura TL 3.2? It has 138K miles on it and has not had a tuneup since 75K 4 years ago...


Geez! Honda kept all the mechanics out of work! Well, a MAJOR TUNE UP must be done in ur FiNE & TiME TESTED car! Replacing the BELTS including timing belt/tensioner should be done. Checking brakes and FLUSHiNG brake fluids. Checking the underchasis, bushings, wheel bearing, wheel alignment, tires and shock absorbers. Checking clutch master/slave and toping hydraulics and gear oil in the transmission for manual. Checking electrical and ECU! Change oil, spark plugs, hi-tension wire, fuel filter, and air filter! Check and top up/flush steering pump. Check and flush cooling system! Thats all! hope your car will last another 10 more years! Taah!

I have an older, about 4-5 years, electric kenmore 96575110 dryer that will not heat. It does it turns, the timer works fine; it just will not heat.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I have a Hoover self-propelled
Posted by klsh on Jun 16, 2008
I have a Hoover self-propelled Windtunnel, purchased 6-04. It gets light use. I have replaced the v belt 3 times, once under warranty, and it must be replaced again. It appears to be in very good condition, but is stretched too big. When I purchased 2 v belts a year ago, one was already too stretched, but when my Dad took it back, the salesman put it on another model and said it was fine (Dad never mentioned this to me). Is there a way to adjust the vacuum to hold the belt tighter? Do they really just stretch out like that normally? The flat belt has never been replaced and is in great condition.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is a good idea to change your flat belt every 4 to 6 months as a rule and the V belts @ least once a year and always use the genuine Hoover belts, there are generic or replacement belts out there but they have a tendency to stretch faster then the genuine belts. What you mentioned is not unheard of and another tip is to store any extra belts in a Ziploc bags in the refrigerator. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer if you have questions or call Hoover factory and ask for tech support. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
