In Topic: How do I replace Gas Dryer without existing shut off valve

03 December 2010 - 06:42 PM

depends on local building codes ..

If you turn OFF the shut-off for the Dryer, and have the old Dryer's gas line disconnected from the Dryer,
they might hook it up...

otherwise they'll drop it off, and you could connect whatever ..

From my understanding of the building codes, they require the shut off valve no more than 6 feet from and in the same room as the appliance. Everyone I spoke with felt that the dryer installers would take one look at the existing setup and refuse to do the installation. Accordingly, I had a plumber come in and put in a shut off valve, which required a 2 foot section of iron pipe in order to do a left turn and then a 1 foot section of iron pipe to rise into the laundry room behind the dryer. The whole job took the plumber about 3 hours and ended up costing me $671.00. Oh well, at least the installation will comply with code and be safer than it was.

Actually its a low hum when pressing the start button, not a buzzing noise.

Got the board (assembly) back from fixyourboard.com. Put it in (much easier when wires are labeled), checked out the operation of both ovens and all is good.

Fixyourboard.com provides a report, although the example on their website is a before and after report, the report I got was only an after.

I also found a Canadian website (www.appliancetimers.com) that repairs ERC boards for significantly less than fixyourboard.com. However, you have to send them the keypad as well the board assembly, which constitutes an 27" wide shipment vs 13" wide, raising the shipping costs, plus shipping to Canada also adds to the shipping cost. And you have to pay for shipping both ways. Fixyourboard includes return shipping in their price. So it was probably a wash as far a price went and fixyourboard gives you a two year warranty. I'm happy!

Thanks to the appliancegurus that provided advice and direction. Since I found this site, I've find that I now have the "courage" to maintain my own appliances. Thanks again.

I have already contacted them.  The board should be on its way to them today.  I'll report back when I reinstall it.  Thanks for your help.

Yes that's the conclusion I have come to.  Unfortunately, the ERC (WB27K5047) is NLA.  Hopefully, one of the repair companies will be able to fix it.
