You are too modest. This is a great site and like Appliance Doctor stated, it is well worth the money. It's MORE than well worth the money. You also have (as I'm FINALLY learning) more than the average number of features to your site and that takes a lot of hard work. Accept your kudo's.

What a great recruiting thread but it's missing a tag line... how 'bout "We do more on this site by 5 am then... " Nope, that one is already taken.

" At appliantology.org, you can have it your wa...."...naaaw.. already used as well.

 

"The Samurai makes appliances Fun(damental)"     not bad..I like it but.maybe too close to an existing one.

 

Okay how bout.."Appliantology, great site, great folks, Learn a ton having fun."

Durham: I think Samurai Appliance does it all lol. That's what I tell folks to google. If that isn't "unusual" enough for them nothing ever will be. :rocker:

All I did was make this space where techs can gather and help each other out.  Lots of really sharp techs here.  Truth is, I get as much help as anyone here.    :banana:

I think that the Samurai's point is that...

 

He's like a Gene Kranz at Mission Control...

 

Surrounded by specialists/experts (in their respective fields of discipline)...

 

It's a Team Effort---that makes this site so unique :)

 

I've often thought of posting a thread of thanks/praise to all of those on this forum for sharing their expertise/knowledge---of the brands & types of appliances that I have little to no experience with. 

 

So I'll  say it now...

 

Thank You---all of you !   :)

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"

Pretty spot on comparison. Krantz, like the Samurai, was an organizational genius. But unlike The Samurai, Krantz never tackled a Samsung refrigerator. How do I know this? If Krantz had ever been a mission director in charge of repairing a Samsung fridge, then he would have understood, believed and stated "failure IS an option."

I disagree :)
 
If push came to shove...
 
The Samurai (and Kranz) with his TEAM---*can* tackle any Samsung refrigerator---using only tube socks and duct tape :)

But the apollo 13 was built using logic and good ol American know how. The Samsung was built buy well....anyhow you are trying to cheat.  Krantz must use the engineers that constructed and designed the device .  

 

So then he'll give the team some  available items such as tape etc for them to design a plan to fix the problem. Just like for the apollo 13 rescue, but this is the contingency plan he received back:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

engineering-fault-finding-chart_zps6381f

 

 

Then he'd utter that famous line repeated by many a Samsung repairmen "Failure is an option."

So then he'd ask the Samurai to help him get something useful out of the Samsung engineers, since Samurai understands appliances. Samurai then asks the engineers to come up with a plan and forget about the tape and WD 40. Just a plan on how to troubleshoot the fridge.  So the engineers, working overtime, submit their modified plan :

Frustrated, the Samurai, takes Krantz to the side and said "look buddy, we got to bring in some real specialists. These so called engineers just aint cutting it. So he submits the issue to an odd collective of techs, neo-techs, geeks and some guy named Bob and lo and behold, Appliantology.org comes up with the correct answer. Krant's butt and reputation is saved and thanks to the great collective of techs, neo-techs, geeks and some guy named Bob, Krants emerges and proclaims..."I knew with the help of Appliantology.org,  failure is not an option."    The End
