ElectroSUX Dryer in Demo Mode

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 26 May 2011 · 330 views

A classic rant from our own Master Nick. THIS is what we've been missing around here!


I haven't vented in quite a while, so I'll serve one up on those worthless bastards at Electrolux.

A customer has this dryer for 2 weeks and it can't be used because it's in the Demo mode. The ownners manual, installation Guide, and Tech quides have no mention of this feature. Putting the machine into diagnostic will not change anything, trying to run the installation cycle will not help, The factory reset does nothing...

Rant break... YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARDS...WHAT GOOD IS A FACTORY RESET FEATURE THAT DOES NOT RESET THE CONTROL!!!!!!!

SO, I call STAC, our tech line, and spend 45 min with them trying numerous methods to exit the Demo Mode, nothing works. We are only left with the idea of replacing the main control board.

Rant break... I HAVE TO REPLACE THE CONTROL BECAUSE YOU ASSWIPES ARE TOO FUCKING STUPID TO PROVIDE THE TECH INFO TO END THE DEMO MODE. PUT THE INFO ON THE TECH SHEET YOU SHIT EATING MORONS.

If any of you guys know how to correct this problem, and get the dryer into normal service mode, please post the method so I can help these folks out. Thank you.

Love,

Master Nick

PS... Electrolux you stink




Installing the belt on a GE dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 02 May 2011 · 877 views

Going from the gray matter, put both arms into the unit ,one to the left of the drum and one to the right near the bottom, left arm over the blower........... On the left side, the belt will go down from the drum, under the motor pulley, up on the right ,,Use your right hand and pull the Idler pulley to the right and lay the belt on the top of the Idler pulley...... let the Idler pulley return to the left slowly..........Viewed from the front, belt down on the left, under the motor pulley up and over the idler pulley.... continuing up and to the right , over the drum......... :blink:

Tips for replacing the motor in a Kenmore (Frigidaire) dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 25 April 2011 · 405 views

I got the new motor in, but the blower fan wheel was clamped on (no wonder it didn't unscrew out!). That wheel is broken too...

FYI anyone getting the blower fan out, you have to remove that panel in the front that goes between the washer and dryer. Then you can get the screws out that can't be reached from above.

The motor clamps have an indent toward one end that you can just push down on with a screw driver until it unhooks... the back one comes out first, then the front one appears after the whole blower housing is removed.

Thanks for the help all..
