Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
My name isXXXXX am going to assist you this evening.
I use to be a field service trainer for Fisher Paykel. I will get you through this repair
I'm sorry I was having trouble with the chat portion and my computer. Ok what did he show you or did he give you part numbers to what he wants to replace?
Have you removed the bottom drawer or do you know how? If you have is there water in the bottom of the pan
I need you to type your question for me in the box at the bottom. I am ready to assist you with fixing this unit.
pull the bottom drawer out, located in the front of the drawer towards the bottom is a clip on each side. Push the clips in and backwards, that will disengage the drawer from the rails. Lift one side of the drawer and slide the rail backwards. Then you can just lift the drawer up and to the side there will still be wires and hoses connected. After drawer is removed, please tell me if you see water in the bottom of Pan. DISCONNECT THE POWER FIRST!
no that's ok, with the drawer out, you can see the hoses, along the hoses there is either a plastic rod or a metal rod attached to the rear and secures to the middle of those hoses. Can you please tell me which you have and if the plastic rod is broke. I will also need you to check the upper drawer. You can set the top drawer right on top of the bottom once you remove them.
Once you get this far we can run the units in diagnostics.
if they will not attach here send them to email@example.com and I will take a look and respond right away
That is the link support I was talking about. It does not appear to be snapped in two in any places? Do you want to run diagnostics?
Sure let me know when you get on line and have some time tomorrow and I will walk you through it.
you will be fine, don't worry we will figure this one out.
Yes you can do it .
Push the lock and start button at the same time and hold for 8 seconds
Then hit the power button once and HO should come on the screen.
Let me know when you get this far.
ok press the power off
make sure the display is blank then try one more time please
It takes a little practice. Were you able to get a list of the parts the other servicer said you needed?
Not a problem at all. I do have a college class final tomorrow night but should be home by 8 or so CST.
Have a good evening.
Do I just give up? I do not know how to get the lower drawer to stop running or or unlock. It seems determined to wash
What is the possibility of flooding if I let it finish cycle 131 min? I have hardwood floors in my kitchen and it is on the second floor!!!
I am really confused. These drawers have no lids - they pull out. If the bottom drawer finishes the cycle is there a chance it will not drain properly?
No more time today - will try once or twice more tomorrow.
i understand. I am furious @ my repair co for lack of info. will try again tomorrow if I have time (you too). if not tomorrow, 1 more try Monday AM
now what to do? changed to rinse cycle. everything worked. upper drawer off
I believe you just need get the link support kits and your problem will go away. Give me a minute and I will get you a part number.
The retro link support kit is part number 528437 it sells for $31.74 a piece and you can order from 800-936-7872. Once you get the kit installed which comes with great instructions. your problem should go away if it does not just come back here and I will help.
Rick, I just called the number you sent me and I think there is an error. Please check and send me another # or email or Co name. You are great and I will rate you excellent; but do not want to shut down until I order the parts.
Does it require strength?
Rick How about another #? That one offers trips to Bahamas - forever and then directs to another # that is not good. Do you have another source or name of a source?
