No, this is not a joke...has nothing to do with my dryer post. While I'm a qualified apprentice and all, I just wanted to ask about the washer too. Heater has not worked for quite a while. Doesn't bother me too much because I don't mind washing everything in cold water. But is it an easy fix? (like replacing the dryer belt)  :whistling:

In appliance repair, "easy" is a relative term. About 30 Ohms on the heating element.

Somehow I just knew that you would pull out the kryptonite... Mechanical repairs I can almost always do even if it takes me too long to figure it out. But intelligent electrical diagnosis has thus far eluded me. So I guess I will proceed with my usual trial and error replacing of parts until I get lucky! :blinky:  Is there a manual or instructions somewhere on the site that shows how to replace the heating coil?

Thanks for that oh Grand Master! Now I'm off to continue my quest for the ultimate training manual for enlightened endurance whilst executing the deceptively simple 12oz curl...
