Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore ultrasoft 180 625.388180 03

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know what the small brownish orange balls are.

This is the resin beads that do the softening.

What has happened is that the distributor screen down in the bottom of the resin tank has broken and is letting the resin beads out into the water lines.

To repair this you will need to replace this part and it is not a nice job for a consumer because you have to remove the resin bed tank from the softener and then remove the resin and replace the distributor. This tank is full of water and resin beads and it is very heavy.

You will have to remove all the salt from the storage tank first.

Then remove the head off the top of the resin tank.

Then remove the top distributor screen and then you will see the resin.

If it was me doing this I would replace the resin bed also, since you have lost some and you have not cleaned the current bed before.

The part number for the distributor is: 7105047 and it sells for about $62.00.

The part number for the resin is: 0502272 and it sells for about $150.00.

My suggestion is to activate the bypass valve to the softener is not in the water supply line and while you will not have softened water it will stop the resin beads from getting into the water lines.

If you feel like you can do this repair and need more help please reply and I will be happy to help you further.

Q:

stove tappan model number-30-3860-23/03 keep saying OFF

A:

Your symptoms point to a failure in the electronic control board that is housed in that console. If you are able to unplug the range and remove that component, you can send it to Core Centric Solutions for repair. The replacement control board part is no longer available. If you decide to have that board repaired, you can call Core Centric Solutions at 1-866-737-2244 to arrange the shipment of that control board. The control board part number is 5303269513.

A:

The cost of repair for the control board by Core Centric Solutions is normally around $150. The labor cost for the Sears Technician is normally around $140. The repair of the range by a technician would probably be around $300. Based on the age of that range, I recommend that you consider replacing it instead of repairing it. You can view new models of ranges on the Sears.com website. If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

What would cause my dryer to take 2-3 cycles to dry?

A:

First, if your dryer is an electric dryer and not gas remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and dry a load. If it dries the clothes in one cycle normally that would indicate a venting issue. Open the door and remove the lint filter and check for a blockage down in the lint filer housing. Inspect the lint filter, take the filter and run water over it to see it the water will pass freely through it. If you use fabric softener it will leave a clear layer over the little holes and restrict the airflow. Take the lint filter and wash it off with water and a brush. Use a vacuum to clean the lint out. Any airflow problem will cause the dryer to take longer to dry. If it's a gas dryer it could have weak gas solenoid coils and it's not always opening the gas valve.

If you’re confident that there are no air flow restrictions I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
