I also had the very same problem with my Whirlpool front loader. This is a common problem and if you have this less then one year they should replace the parts for free. The reason I said parts is because they also had to replace the entire tub and some other parts as well. It took then almost three hours. Thank goodness I have an extended warrentee which I think you shouls also consider.

Whirlpool is a very reliable company and after reading what Ashley sent to you I don't think your going to have any problems.

I just want to mention something to you. If the washer makes noise it could be something else like a clogger drain pump which is easily serviced. The way to tell is to have the washer off and try spinning the tub with your hand if it makes noise then your up for the whole monti.

Good luck,

Marty

Energy smart light stays green but no heat


Depends if you have new or old style energy smart.
Generally this can mean the control board is bad.

Link below has contact information for Craftmaster and Whirlpool and some troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

Repairs are funneled through the manufacturer who profits by selling non-generic parts not available from local hardware store... with purpose to end DIY repairs, make more money for manufacturer, and build up network of brand-loyal repair service companies who can sign you up with a repair package ... under the banner of saving you $1 a month in energy cost.
Look at label located on side of water heater to find manufacturer and serial number.

If water heater is within 6-9 year warranty period, then parts are covered, but labor is not.
Manufacturer can send parts and/or refer you to local technician.

My whirlpool duet front load washer has loose fins in the tub. how do i tighten them??


You're not gonna like this:

Pull the washer tub (see elsewhere on FixYa for step-by-steps), split the tub by removing the screws holding the two halves together, and remove the inner tub. Bend any tabs tighter that hold the fins on, and tighten any screws. While you have it apart, check for grease stains or other leakage on either side of the outer tub, and ensure the inner tub bearing is tight so that the inner tub shaft rotates smoothly and without oscillation. If there are stains or if the bearing is showing wear, replace that (back) half of the outer tub to replace the bearing (unless this is one of the few machines that allow you to replace only the bearing). You don't want to put all this back together, only to have to take it all apart again when the inner tub starts hammering on the inner tub because the bearing went south.

My whirlpool front load washing machine is making a loud knocking noise when in the spine cycle.


Bad tub baring or hopefully a cloged drain pump. If it is a tub baring it is going to cost a lot of money.

Good luck,

Is the Whirlpool Electric Water Heater Model # EE3J50RD045V energy star rated


You want to know if this heater has Energy Star label.
I don't know.
Call Whirlpool 1-877-817-6750

Energy Star is a label that means nothing to you.
Manufacturers use energy-star label to promote a product as a money-saver.
They can put an Energy Star label on a giant 10,000 square foot house, and you know that cannot be the truth that a large house saves energy vrs a smaller house.

Energy factor, (energy factor/ not energy star) on the other hand, is a comparison measure how efficient the water heater uses energy to heat a gallon of water, when water heater is absolutely new.
EE3J50RD045V has energy factor of .59, which is completely typical and ordinary for electric water heaters.

The EE3j 50 gallon is an ordinary electric water heater, with ordinary average .59 energy factor rating, so electricity to operate this water heater is same as any other typical 50 gallon electric water heater: it will cost $35-45 a month depending on incoming water temperature, hot water use, thermostatic setting, electricity pricing, and whether you operate heater at peak pricing, etc.
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-much-does-it-cost-to-run-water-heater.html

The most important measure of water heater cost does not have anything to do with Energy-star or energy-factor.
The most important measure is total cost of owning and operating the water heater.
So if you spend $100 more to purchase electric water heater with slightly higher energy factor, then it will not pay you back. The difference will be $2 to $4 per year.
All costs are energy.
The total cost of operating water heater includes purchase price, installation cost, cost of repairs, cost of parts, whether you can fix it yourself, expected life of water heater, and replacement cost.
Every water heater has expected lifespan, and will not have resale value except current price of scrap.

Electric water heaters cost more to operate per month than same-size gas water heater.
Gas water heater might cost less over the life of water heater, but gas water heaters are increasingly expensive to repair, and increasingly more complicated, and cost more up-front to buy.

Electric water heaters cost less to buy, are easy to install yourself, are fully repairable by homeowner using generic off-the-shelf parts, and can be made to last many years by keeping tank clean and replacing anode rod every 2 years.
You can make ordinary 6-year electric water heater from box store last almost indefinitely.
Avoid electric water water heater that has electronic controls.

I have a whirlpool water heater mod. Fg1f4034t3nv. Igniter will not work'.instructions missing. Have all lines. Etc disconected how do I get assembly out?


I don't know because I can't see it, and I don't have manual.
But I can give you resources:
Call Whirlpool:
(877) 817-6750

Whirlpool is usually Craftmaster which is American which is AO Smith.
http://www.hotwater.com/water-heaters/residential/conventional/gas/
Age of water heater shows on serial number: first two digits should be year, second two digits should be week.

The market is always changing.
Find manufacturer using label on side of tank, find manual with parts diagram, and order burner parts. Whirlppol site does not have manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

It might be cheaper to install a new water heater yourself from box store for $330.00

How can I find out what the Energy Rating is on my Reliance 501 w/h?


Reliance is AO Smith company.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/prod/gas.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

1) Reliance does not post the 501 manual any more and I've written and asked for that manual, and they sent generic manual. Model 501 is both gas and electric.

2) That tells me the old energy factor is probably lower than .54 approximately, but it will be even less because energy factors are for new water heaters in perfect operating order under ideal conditions.

3) Energy factor is a measure of how efficiently the water heater turns energy BTUs into hot water.
Gas water heaters have higher energy factor because gas burner has more BTU punch than electric element, and can heat water faster.

4) However, energy factor is not measure of actual cost. It is merely a way to compare giant water heaters with smaller heaters, and gas with electric, without considering cost of heater, installation cost, repair costs, parts costs, life expectation of unit, disposal/recycling cost, or replacement cost.

5) You can improve your true energy factor by buying small cheap heater and maintaining it yourself so it lasts many years beyond manufacturer's warranty.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html

6) If someone buys a bigger water heater because it has better energy factor, it will not pay back the higher purchase cost. Same size to same size, the difference with higher energy factor is a few dollars per year.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

7) If you have sediment inside of tank, the energy factor is out the window.
