Topics I've Started

LG wm2140cw

26 September 2011 - 12:29 PM

Our Frigidaire 'tumblewash' front loader from 1999 has terminal bearing failure. Yes, I know we got over twice the life most people did with this model. We've had few problems (other than when the DS ran a pocket full of nails through it), mostly because I rant about using only HE in small amounts, only running balanced loads, and running whites and towels in hot water.

Quality being what it is in the washer arena these days, and budget being what it is, I've come down to the LG wm2140cw currently on sale for $629.99 at Sears, and $649 at HD. HD will not charge for delivery and haul-off of old washer, and I'm still mourning the Sears I lost when K-Mart took over, so it'll probably be HD.

Anybody have any opinions for or against LG and this model in particular? I picked it because I can't find many complaints about it, and most of those are from people who screw it up with the detergent.

Also, I'm wondering about the installation. The DH built a platform for the Frigidaire w&d that's two feet high, made of 2/4's and plywood, mounted on six 4"hx3"w heavy-duty rubber casters. It's level, braked, and rigid. Hubby built it because our septic drain is 5' high instead of being in the basement floor, and the line the washers drains into is 6' high. The platform was designed to bring the drain hose within the maximum allowable length/height per washer installation instructions. This set up hasn't seemed to bother the Frigidaire, but in researching what to buy, I saw a couple of posts saying wood platforms are a no-no. Is the platform likely to be a problem with a newer washer?

Thanks for any and all help.

Kenmore Elite Induction Cooktop 790-428 00500

The DH turned on the cooktop, heard something blow, and got an error code 35. When he took a look inside, he saw a 20amp fuse had blown on the filter board. Ordered a new filter board, installed it, turned on the cooktop, and same thing happened. Help!!!! Incidentally, we used to get hit with power surges all the time, so I had a whole-house surge suppressor installed before we put this cooktop in. That was back in 2007. Haven't had any problems since, and the surge suppressor didn't show any sign of a power surge on this one. Any advice on figuring out what's causing the problem? Thanks!!
