Multiple Appliances with Problems

Name: Ann

Inquery Type: Appliance repair question

Comments: I have 3 appliances with problems.  Our 13 yr old Kenmore washer doesn't spin unless we give it a push.  I think it's the motor but don't know for sure.  My 7 year old Bosch dishwasher isn't draining properly even after cleaning accessible drain in the basin.  My 7 yr. old KitchenAid gas range has a power burner that isn't igniting properly and when it does, the flame is very low.  We used to be able to clean under the burner cover but that doesn't seem to work anymore.

Hi Ann Marie, thanks for the note.

I believe the washer has a worn out clutch assembly. On the dishwasher you need to check the drain hose to make sure there are no kinks in it and check the connection on the garbage disposer. Remove the hose and clean out the spout where the hose connects to the disposer. Clean it out with a table knife. The range may have a need for a regulator and should be checked out before buying any parts. Regards,  Joe Gagnon.
