To the Dojo,

I went out on this customer's dryer; to service the vent, I had to go over the top of the washer. I inadvertently kneeled in the middle of the lid. Because of my kneeling, I had to lengthen the lid switch plug. Now, the customer claims this MT Atlantis didn't squeak and seize up the tub when the washer is stopped. This situation reminds me strongly of a WP direct-drive washer with dry pads on the spin tube. Does anyone have any experience with MT washers seizing like this; would my "over the top" on the lid have caused this? I'll take what you've got.

Thanks in advance,
Tyrus

Very common to get the loud squeak or chirp on these POS ...hell no, no way no how yer knee on the lid caused this to happen.
only way I know to abate this is to remove and replace the rotor/stator ...I have had some luck cleaning the brake pad on the rotor and the mating surface on the stator with emory cloth, but it is a pain in the ass to access these ...may as well replace the snubber while yer in there...

Like alot of customers today, they will say it didn't do this until you worked on it or touched it, just so they can get something fixed for free.

This story is a perfect example of one of the reasons I stopped doing dryer vent installations. I'm too old and stiff to be climbing over appliances like a limbo dancer and, besides, it's not very interesting work and you can't charge enough for it to make it more interesting! If there's a weird dryer connection situation where I need to reconnect a dryer vent in a tight laundry closet as part of servicing the dryer itself, that's one thing-- gotta do whatcha gotta do. But installing or replacing dryer vents as stand-alone jobs? Those days are over.
