Question and Answers

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.

Q:

I need a 30 inch high base for a 76 inch round table top.

A:

Thank you for your question on the table pedestal for the 76 inch round table.

Are you trying to find another one like what is in the picture?

This would probably have to be a custom built piece.

The base circles would need to be made up and then cut into the circles.

The support between the disks and the table top would need to be turned with a lathe.

Most of all the dinning tables that large have feet instead of a round base.

I am afraid that we do not have anything like this.

Q:

Kenmore dishwasher gets stuck at 76 min cycle time in "normal" cycle.

A:

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Without knowing what you have checked, I am at a distinct disadvantage. When this dishwasher LONG CYCLES or aborts in a certain portion of the cycle, as part of normal operation, the dishwasher pauses 2 or 3 times during the cycle for thermal holds and advances once temperature is met. Some of the things that can cause this are:

  1. Low inlet water temperature. A). Make sure your water heater is set to deliver 120 degree water (minimum).
  2. Dishwasher hooked up to cold water line. A). Make sure the dishwasher is hooked up to the HOT water line.
  3. Loose connection(s). A). Check the wire connections at the thermistor, control board, and heater circuit. B). OHM the heating circuit and wires.
  4. Thermistor problem. A). OHM the thermistor and wires.
  5. Problem with thermistor input on control. A). Check control's ability to read thermistor in Diagnostics (Run diagnostics).Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.


Here is what I recommend:
  1. Run the diagnostics cycle. I have included the tech sheet in the images below.
  2. OHM the thermistor from the control board at P2-2 to the white wire at the terminal block. The correct range for the thermistor is 48-52K (+/- 10 %) at 25 degrees Celsius or 77 degrees Fahrenheit and 12-13K (+/- 10 %) at 60 degrees Celsius or 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. OHM the heater circuit. From P6 on the control to the white wire at the terminal block. 10 - 35 OHMS


NOTE: Diagnostics Cycle, Thermistor Open/Short Detection: The Diagnostics Test cycle will illuminate the CLEAN LED and WATER HEATING LED throughout the operating portion of the cycle that follows the initial display test interval whenever it detects a short circuit or open circuit on the thermistor input. Warm water must be in the dishwasher when performing this test. The highest thermistor resistance values the control can detect as its open circuit criteria are close to the normal thermistor resistance at room temperature. Consequently, this indicator is only reliable for open circuit detection if warm water is in the dishwasher. As a means of testing the accuracy of the thermistor circuit, the control will turn on the SANITIZED/SANI COMPLETE LED in Interval 3 of Diagnostics when it detects a thermistor resistance of 10K OHMS, or at least a resistance that is within a 1-bit range around 10K based on the resolution of the control's A/D circuit.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
