Posted by DrFrige on 24 April 2014 - 08:45 PM

UPDATE: So I went back to my customer's home today and I watched it agitate... then, as soon as it started draining, I busted out the stopwatch feature on my iPhone...1:30 into drain... OK 30 seconds to go


2:00... still on pump out...


2:30 .... starting to worry a bit  


3:00.... OK now this is getting longer than they said


3:30... I can feel my tears building up in my eyes and my lower lip starting to tremble as I am about to cry ...


EXACTLY 4:00 INTO DRAIN ... It stops, THEN SPINS!!!!!



WHOO HOO!!!... pissed my pants I was so happy.



Thank you guys for the great support and the education. You guys rock!

WOAH!!! I am not worthy... I am not worthy! You know, sometimes we look at sites like this and forget at what a blessing it is to have this at our fingertips. We get endless help but the ONE TIME we cannot get an answer, it ends in frustration.... HOWEVER, this is how life itself works. We ALL must remember the good... I am sorry, scratch that... THE GREATNESS this site provides outweighs the alternatives of guesswork.

THANK YOU to all the contributing members and YES, as soon as "dead season" removes itself from my life and I can get some service calls, I will be sending in beer $$$

#176559 When your own wife calls in a service call

Posted by DrFrige on 18 November 2010 - 05:52 AM

So, I am at work chugging away to earn money to support the wife, kids, beer habit and my bride calls me and asks "How do I take the front off our dryer?" I said "What the heck do you need to do that fer?" She retorts with "Oh, because it is on fire"

Hmmmm so with this information, I then suggest that she should call our local firefighters to watch our tax dollars work for us. She says "No, it's ok, the smoke is subsiding and I don't want our home flooded" (Singed, I guess is ok, but water? no. we don't want that)

Anyway, My bride gets it open, and ONCE AGAIN a lint ball has fallen right in line with the burner box. (this is the third time this has happened to us with this POS dryer)

Fisher & Paykel front loader if anyone is curious.

Now MOST wives ask their husbands "honey, on your way home from work, can you pick up milk, or bread, or some sort of small sundry item" NO! my bride said to me that day "Honey, can you pick up a new dryer on your way home from work?"

WITH PLEASURE! We served our F&P dryer eviction papers and are now the proud parents of a Whirlpool built Maytag dryer.

Wife is happy, so life is happy.
