    @Bentley - You are in the Legacy Tech member group. Most people in the Legacy Tech member group would have paid a small one-time membership ranging from $5 to $95 for lifetime access to the forums and for access to the Repair Manual Stash, an old Mediafire account with a bunch of manuals in it that hasn't been updated in 10 years. In your case, I don't have any record that you paid anything! But even if you did, you are getting *more* than what you originally paid for. We've made many enhancements to the site to make it a more powerful resource for members. This has resulted in big increases in operating costs. Additionally, we are no longer supported by advertising or affiliate parts sales like in the old days. So to keep the site online, we had to go to a subscription model. Current tech membership at Appliantology is $197/year. This pays for three full-time people to run the site and a dedicated server meaning we don't share server space with any other websites-- we have our own professionally managed server in a professionally managed datacenter. This site is not a hobby run out of some guy's basement. Legacy Tech members still have access to the tech-only forums. In fact, Legacy Techs have *more* access and features available to them now than when they first became members and today are getting *more* than what they originally paid for. We've added many features and enhancements, both hardware and software, to the site since then and we've grandfathered some of those features to Legacy Techs. One of those features is the Downloads section of the site-- a searchable repository of technical literature. The Downloads section did not even exist when you became a member. Yet you can search and download service manuals. Yes, the download speed it throttled to ensure that Professional Appliantologist members have full server resources available to them. Appliantology does not sell manuals. There are sites on the internet that do. We sell subscriptions to a community, of which one of the many benefits is access to manuals and to request manuals. We have a large and growing library of service manual and tech sheet downloads, all searchable. But access to this library is just one of the benefits to Professional Appliantologist members. You can read all the other benefits here: https://appliantology.org/store/product/11-professional-appliantologist/ Appliantology is a tech community, a brotherhood of professional appliance repair technicians supporting each other in the craft and helping each other become better at what we do. We are not the right site for everyone nor are we trying to be all things to all people. I don't want all techs here. I am not desperate to sell memberships to get as many members as possible. I run this site because 1) it's interesting and 2) I love the trade and want to help techs be better at what they do. I looked at your profile and see that, although you've been a member here since 2011, you've made only 37 posts. If all you're looking for is a cheap/free place to get manuals, you should look elsewhere. Given your level of activity at the site, I would say that you would be better off at another site. We are not holding you or anyone else hostage. Like any business transaction, it's all based on voluntary association: people value the services we offer more than than the money for the membership and a transaction is born. That's business in a free market economy. A member is completely free to renew their membership or not. We work hard to show value for members subscription in the hopes they do renew. You have already formed the opinion that we are evil, greedy, strangle kittens, eat babies, etc. We've heard it all before and mostly from guys who are barely making it as techs so they lash out at us in desperation. I don't expect that anything I've said here will change your opinion nor is that my intention. There are many other sites out there in the Internet that would be more to your liking. I wish you the best in your business.
  3. Today
  4. And no trouble with any other burners?
  5. Kenmore Frig filter 106.74254401

    Success that seems to have done it, taking off the water pressure via the water dispenser paddle, and or just not in all the way. Not sure where the leak was it was dry when I arrived home Thanks.
  6. https://servicematters.com/ it is the Whirlpool website. Paid membership. Can look up Whirlpool built stuff in it if you use whole model number with the dot [edited] the b2b site for Frigidaire for Electrolux stuff. Also can look up Electrolux/Frigidaire built kenmore appliances if you type in the whole model number with the dot. Free site.
  7. LG LSWD305ST Double Wall Oven Service Manual

    Takes forever then times out... then says forbidden if i try to resume. Will not let me retry because it says I can only download 1 file at a time. I wait hours even though I am not downloading anything. Then starts all over again. Not worth paying for membership. Try to hold you and their manuals hostage. Manuals that do not belong to them in the 1st place. I do not have hours to sit around and wait for a download. I work for a living too! Everybody has to pay for one guy.
  8. Its 98% blue. Couple of specks of yellow but almost completely blue.
  9. I will look up service matters . Never really heard of it till now. Sounds like a good investment
  10. Yesterday
  11. Is the colour orange when you first light it ?
  12. Thanks. That might be over my pay/expertise grade. ;(
  13. Sounds like the flow of gas is being obstructed somewhere. Might need to dig deeper... into burner tubes. Great video!
  14. After about 5-6 minutes of heating, the outer ring of the double ring burner front left starts going on and off quickly in a sputter. Igniter does not seem to be the problem. Cleaned the burner outlets. Any ideas?
  15. That's how I found it. I found that since my area is saturated with WP products it is a good investment to subscribe to service matters. Many times I take a call while on the road or in a persons home that adds another appliance on while I'm there. I able to look up the tech sheet right there and not have to wait for it to be uploaded here. Also allows me to help others find their tech sheets. Just like Appliantology membership, it is not an expense, it is an investment.
  16. Needing Repair Techs!!

    Honestly, if you can catch a Sears or a&e tech at lunch, or on a break, have a chat with him. Odds are he is looking for a more stable job with less selling involved. You might also check out some Facebook groups such as: Appliance Tech Life appliance technician group Appliance Pro Talk to name a few...
  17. Needing Repair Techs!!

    Where??
  18. need service manual for WTW7300DW0

    There's no way you could have! A single PUB can apply to lots of different models but cross referencing them is unique to each manufacturer's internal database. Lots of times, I'll look up the tech sheet by model number on Service Matters only to find that it uses the same PUB number already uploaded to Appliantology under a different model number. But the only way I can find that out is by looking up the model number on Service Matters. If you're not finding a tech sheet or service manual here at Appliantology by model number and wildcard search, don't hesitate to post a request and ask for help!
  19. Needing Repair Techs!!

    Catch 'em as they run screaming out of Sears... (?)
  20. Thanks Guy's for that help. I appreciate that you took your time to help out Thanks so much. This helps not only in my confidence when I walk in the door for this repair but it also shows me that there are techs on this site who care to help out other upcoming techs with good information. Im only 7 years into appliance repair and boy there is still so much to be learned Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to this file being accessible. I didn't think of putting in a different model # search for this 7300 mod. I will try to perfect my search skills on a more broader base in the future.

  22. Samsung DV40J3000EW/A2 stops mid normal cycle

    How well does water flow through it? I have had some dryers that fail a flow test with a meter and screen "looks clear" but after washing them with hot soap and water they pass the flow test.
