I buy most of other big 4 (3?) stuff from All-Brand Appliance Parts in PA. My guy there Jim Dugan takes really good care of me.
Automatic Appliance Parts in Chicago is my source for the BSH parts I infrequently need. They seem to know Thermador better than anyone else I have dealt with and I don't like making three trips for a job.
I buy lots of LG parts from ...LG and lots of Fishy-Pickle parts from, you guessed it, Fishy-Pickle. Because I have no choice.

I also like McCombs supply in Scranton, Pa. They have a catalog . I have never found a source with better prices, and they constantly have sales on a lot of items. I just bought a Whirlpool dryer motor there Pn 279827 for $41.75; sale good till Feb 17th.
I gotta say I love the Sears.com site for their appliance breakdown diagrams.
The ones I dislike are the hard to use ones that have higher prices.

Yes, I too love the Sears site but I have yet to buy anything from them.
It would be a good idea to at least check the prices at Sears sometimes.
Some of there items sell for less then my wholesaler, (Marcone), charges.
Good example is the Whirlpool Duet door latch assembly. Just last year in November I purchased one from Marcone and it was only $17.71 which was less then Sears price, but now Marcone wants $37.65 + shipping unless I do at least a $99 order. Sears is still only $32.88 with shipping, (as long as you have the option to wait 4 to 5 days for it to arrive).

This, sometimes is hard to do but we should try. The entire service business for us and all is dependent on us providing a service where we ALL feel good about our performance. I have personally reflected on a botched repair or one that was unfair or unprofessional and called back the customer and made the repair better in some way. However this is not allways possible!
I personally feel the servicers who overcharge or provide a poor service are loosing market share and actually, in many areas, destroying the service market. No need to mention who is doing this.
Sorry for getting off topic.

Sooo can anyone find a good wholesaler that can match McCombs price of $41.75 for a Whilrpool dryer motor???

Getting to be where the only dryer motors I do are for the Home Warranty companies. The only Frigidaire dryer motors I replace are for Electrolux ESA, those things are wicked expensive and I tell people over the phone that it might not even be worth my trip out. I prefer fixing things to being priced out but I like it even better when they go buy a Whirlpool dryer without having to pay me first.

Marcone $39.90 (shows as 8 lot price) if you got a good sales person they will sell at 2 lot

What is Sears Commercial?
AP Wagner for most stuff. Sears Commercial for some things, mostly electronic boards (have to compare, though-- not always a great deal and they're slow to send out parts). For most high-end stuff, I use RepairClinic.com. :bozo:

Their website reeks as far as lookups or ordering goes. It is great for looking up my invoices for Frigidaire warr claims, etc.
Thanks Acc App. I checked their web site but was uninspired.

I took a look at McCombs website and they look to be just about like Washer Specialties. They both have the same( Armstrong Supply) handbook that they distribute, and same style flyers.
Thanks Acc App. I checked their web site but was uninspired. I really like McCombs as they have a handy dandy catalog with lots of parts and ALLWAYS have a lot of stuff on sale. Also APwagner has parts look up and a easy to use web site, more important than saving a few dollars on parts.
