It has been annoyingly slow. Especially when trying to post. It's a problem with the MySQL server (the database) and I have a trouble ticket in wth my host. Will let you know what they say (if anything-- they're support is highly mediocre).

Well, I don't need to tell y'all that this was the weekend from Server Hell with the web host as the gatekeeper. I've submitted about a dozen trouble tickets. They say that the forum load is too big and it's overloading the MySQL server (that's the database that holds all the forum information, including attachments). I show them my MySQL server logs-- which they could have just as easily looked at, had they bothered, but NOOO!-- and they could plainly see that there was absolutely no unusual activity at the forum for the past month.

They've stopped replying to my "support" tickets.

Incompetent AND unresponsive. I rectum I'm just lucky thata way. :grunt:

One other thing. You'll notice that we lost all of Saturday's posts and many of Friday's. That's cuz all the server problems screwed up the database and it became unstable. So I hadda restore a backup version of the database that didn't have the screwed up parts, which seemed to have gotten really bad on Saturday (if the server responsiveness was any indication of pending failure).

Now the quest for a reliable hosting solution for these forums begins anew. I'm wide open to suggestions!

Sorry for the problems and thanks for your patience and forbearance whilst I do some mud-wrastlin' with this server mess. :barbell:

The other thing you may or may not know is that anyone who signed up new to the forums (like me) got lost in the system restore.  I signed up again which meant another $5 for your beer fund, but I think I owe you anyway ... because, while I waiting for insight on a dryer problem, I read some old info on washers and fixed the problem we'd been having with really really slooooowwww filling on cold cycles.  As you can probably guess, the filter screen was caked with lime and sediment.  You guys are brilliant.  So, have a cold one on me.  ;)

When I have a little more time, I will re-post about my dryer problem.  I am getting it to work well enough that I got the wash done, but I do still have an issue that probably should get cleared up.

Thanks for making this forum available!

I remember your Dryer problem...

Disconnect Dryer Vent.

Does it heat in the non-heat mode ? (Heater Element shorted to ground)

Check for good  air-flow

Temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F & 160F with empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat.  (meat thermometer)

If the temperature is higher, then it sounds like your Operating Thermostat is bad.

Hi again... I reposted under the Laundry Repair forum, in case it will help someone else.  Added all the detail to get other readers up to speed. 

Dryer runs with no heat on no heat setting.  Air flow is good and temp is 145-150 on regular heat, timed dry, empty.  If you have other thoughts, maybe post them on the other thread, in case someone else wants to follow along.

Thank you so much!!!
