Notice the relocated control panel on the side wall. One of the luckiest days I've ever had. The complaint was the dryer would not start. The door switch was bad. The only component I could get to and test without doing carpentry work.

LOL

 

What a piece of work :)


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"

That's awesome!

 

Until you're the one who has to work on it, including the homeowner if they do it themselves.

 

That's just crazy!!!!!!

It is an older model dryer but I'm sure that's not the way the manufacturer intended it to be used.  Not only would I not service it, but I would whip out one of my red "Hazard-Do Not Use" tags to cover my ass.

I kinda wonder what the washer looks like.


I see says the blind man, leading a lame dog, while talking to a deaf person. In other words, Not liable if you choose to follow my opinion.

I'd like to see somebody do that to a full size van because it wouldn't fit in the garage. Just cut the roof off of it and nail it back on when you want to drive it.
