My daughter has a LG fridge Model LFC2577DST which suddenly

My daughter has a LG fridge Model LFC2577DST which suddenly stopped making ice. I know one reason may be the water supply line froze but I think it may have more to do with the solenoid valve. Is there any way to test this to make sure it is not working properly? The ice maker is completely dry.

My frigidaire dishwasher doesn't fully drain after its done

My frigidaire dishwasher doesn't fully drain after its done washing. If we load the dishwasher and close it and don't run it for a day or two then the dishes have mold on them. Is the dishwasher safe for our family to use once mold is present? We ran a cleaner through it and then poured vinegar and ran it with vinegar and it's still not draining. My husband thinks it's just fine and tells me it's supposed to keep a little bit of water in it at all times! We have 4 kids and twin 1 year olds and the little ones seem to be sick all the time and I'm afraid it's our dishwasher! We have very hard water out here and I personally think it could be clogged by mineral buildup! Please help!

Our Air-O-Swiss U700 is 9 months old, and it has functioned

Our Air-O-Swiss U700 is 9 months old, and it has functioned without problems until yesterday. I did a 3-hour EZ Cal decalcification; thoroughly flushed out the fluid; and refilled with filtered tap water. Afterward, I noticed that some of the buttons didn't respond normally, but the humidifier still seemed to function OK. It ran through the night.This afternoon (the next day) I noticed a low humming sound coming from the unit even though it was "Off." It has always been quiet in the "Off" position before. The setting display panel continued to act weirdly in that some of the displays weren't completely visible or the buttons wouldn't work properly. I also noticed vapor lazily coming out of the top of the tank even when the humidifier button was in the "Off" position. I unplugged the humidifier and removed the tank.I noticed that the water in the base was quite warm--we haven't used the heater option. I emptied the humidifier base and replaced the warm water with cool filtered tap water. Before I put the tank back on the base, I plugged in the unit to see if the hum continued. To my surprise water and a gentle vapor began to gurgle like a geyser from the membrane even when the humidifier button was "Off.". I put my knuckle in the water to see if it was getting warm, but I think I received what felt like a slight shock. I shut everything down and found you folks on the web. Here I am.Can you tell me what may be happening from what I've described above? We do have a water softener, but we have only used the filtered water spigot. Is that part of our problem? Where do we go from here?Sincerely,David Throndson ***@******.*** (###) ###-####

I haven't used my duet front-loading washer or dryer six

I haven't used my duet front-loading washer or dryer for about six weeks and when I went to use the washer today, I had no power. Everything was plugged in correctly and I checked the breaker and reset it (it did not appear to be tripped). The basement (where they are located) appears damper than usual (humidifier not working properly?) Could this cause a problem?

My frigidaire dehumidifier has started to leak underneath the machine. it's set up to drain through a hose but since it started leaking it has drained only into the bucket. I tipped the machine over yesterday and a lot of water poured out. Something must be stopped up. How do I repair it?
