  1. Home & Family I have a kenmore elite 5 dryer worked fine yesterday tried to turn on this morning and it like it is dead. we had a power outage in the area last night. is there a reset button.

    Hello kimmyja, there is NOT a reset button on the dryer. If the dryer operates on 220 volts, I recommend locating the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. Reset both circuit breakers by…

  3. Food & Cooking How do you reset the control panel on Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 665.13793K010?

  4. Home & Family How can I get an owner's manual for a my Craftsman air compressor model number 15362. It was purchased on 11-26-13 at Kmart #4473, 10131 East 21st, Tulsa Oklahoma. I have talked to Sears parts on three occasions and have had two chat sessions, all unsuccessful. I also tried managemylife.com and it was not helpful. One of the chat reps told me that no parts were available for this unit, but I know that is incorrect because I had to order a replacement part when I first opened the box, and I got it quickly with no problem. I have been a Sears customer for many years and I know an error of this magnitude is not acceptable to the company, so I asked to be connected to a supervisor. He told me that was not possible and gave me a phone number I had already tried with no results. I would appreciate any help you can offer. My house and workshop are filled with Sears products and I have never had a problem like this.

    Hello mdwatson522, I could not locate the model specific owner's manual but I believe the one in the link below will be the same. http://download.sears.com/own/spin_prod_683882401.pdf
  5. Home & Family I want to buy a new tv, 39/40 inches. My seating area is about 6-10 feet from the tv. I mainly watch programs and movies. I also have a Roku, and would like the tv to be able to pick up local channels, so I don't know if that has to do with HD? I'm hoping to spend less than $500

  16. Home & Family I hope SHC-FredM sees my question...... I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher kuds30ixss, It will turn on, but does not stay set at the same cycle mode from the previous wash, it will let me choose the cycle I want, I press start and it starts to work, I hear it filling with water or something, then it makes a humming sound that lasts about one second, it does this four times, then starts to drain and then shut down. No matter what seting I use, it does the same thing. I also tried turning the breaker off to the dishwasher, hoping to reset the computer, but it continues to do the same thing. Do you think this is the computer control board that needs replacement? The part is 200$ and I don't want to order it unless I feel like it is definitely the problem. I think it is more than two years old, I don't remember for sure when we got it. I am hoping to do the repair myself. Thank you for any help or suggestions.

    AndyWaggoner: Based on your symptom and details, it sounds like the dishwasher is in DEMO mode or the dishwasher is signaling an error code. Running a diagnostic cycle and letting it complete the dia…
