#323446 Maytag A503 washer is too easily unbalanced

Posted by ThePadre on 30 June 2015 - 01:30 PM

Making a final report that the Maytag has successfully washed the half-dozen or so loads since I made this fix. Thanks again.




#321680 Maytag A503 washer is too easily unbalanced

I installed the new damper pads this evening. It dealt with a single pair of jeans without going into a depressive state, so I think this is solving the problem. The existing pads were all there, but quite thin and not all that well lubricated anymore. I got to live the dental hygienist life of scraping junk off by looking in a mirror with a flashlight.

 

Oh yeah, egads, this machine was gross underneath and inside. I know you guys must get PTSD from looking at the crap that accumulates inside your customers' laundry equipment. This one is exacerbated by what appears to be a slow leak from the tub. The back left quadrant had a lot of rust piling up. I used a shop vac to get it out before loosening the springs.

 

Muchas gracias, amigos.




#239412 Am I nuts to replace a smooth-top fancy pants range with an old school coil one?

Posted by ThePadre on 18 September 2012 - 07:31 PM

I'd love a natural gas stove, but there are no lines in my area. So then we're talking propane, and my stove is on an interior wall. In that case, I'm now running a line in the house, etc. I think giving the electric coil stove a chance is a good idea in this case.

In the end, my personal experiene (which is sample size 1) suggests that these smooth top ranges are a triumph of aesthetics over simple utility. No one wants an ugly stove, but, really, its first job is to cook food. If it does that poorly, well, who cares about the aesthetic.
