The publication 'Appliance Service News' will no longer be in business.......Got a card from the couple that have been running it since 1977......The husband has died and she is not going to continue publishing as of Jan. 2012....................I'm gonna miss reading the glossy pages and getting the appliance industries feed back / comments, to the workers of the trade out here....................You can still read the past issues of ASN, the user name and passwords will no longer be needed.

Before the internet---Appliance Service News was the only servicer publication that I knew of in the industry.

It was a valuable resource at the time.

I subscribed to their publication---which in the early 80s---was a very simple format.

Though I haven't read ASN for some time now---It's still sad to see it end.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

This is odd---just found out that ASNews is owned by...
