SOURCE: Kenmore Washing Machine - no cold water coming in

most likely cuase would be the inlet valve

SOURCE: AEG LAVAMAT 12700 VI turbo washing machine doesn't drain

Hi, You have taken out the strainer of the washer front and cleaned it regularly haven't you?? If that's clear, it's probably just the waste line blocked. Try removing the waste pipe where it joins under the sink, put it in a bucket and see if the washer drains. It's probably full of sh"te. If that doesn't work, then I'm probably full of sh"te and you might need a new pump.

SOURCE: Kenmore 500 top load washer starts to fill withwater then stops

This is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. If the washer fills, agitates, then stops at the rinse and won't drain, or if the washer does an initial fill, then stops, this is a symptom of a lid switch malfunction.

The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.
On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

If the lid switch is found to be defective, it can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
applaincepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is $25 to $35. Prices vary between these sites, so shop around for the best deal.

This is a very simple repair, but if you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dehumidifier efficiency


I'm surprised that you are trying to dehumidify if you are in the northern hemisphere right now.

But, before you go off trying to fix the refrigerant, see if you can get a glass of ice water to sweat near the dehumidifier. While relative humidity might be high in cold climates right now, it's a relative number, as the total grains of moisture is far lower than what it would be in a warmer climate. Cold air saturates easier, because it holds less, moisture.

Most people use a humidifier in the winter because they want to saturate the air with water, which is better for the human body, and minimizes static electricity.

I can help you diagnose the dehumidifier if you want. The coil should only get to 40 degrees or so. But the sweating glass of water will tell you if there is enough moisture in the air for the dehumidifier to wring out.
