      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

  12. Help! Have an 8 year old GE Profile electric dryer. Laundry room is on 2nd floor in center of house. About 2 years ago, started to get water and condensation in and under dryer. I take it apart and do thorough cleaning of blower, inside, lint filters, etc, regularly. Vent duct was in wall with immediate narrow periscope unit with two 90degree bends, followed by short section then another 90, then a 12' four inch pipe to outside flapper. I struggled cleaning the periscope and vent with a thin plumbing snake and brush. This would solve the problem for a few months; then I'd repeat process. Finally, water started building up in dryer again more frequently in 2 or 3 months after cleanings. I decided to replace the old duct in a new direction. Ran a new 4'' rigid aluminum vent pipe starting with 90 degree elbow, to new pipe 8' straight up into the attic, 2nd 90 elbow, the horizontally 12', the 3' flex to a soffet vent with flapper. (All taped with foil tape, all male ends in direction of air flow.) Worked OK for a week, now water again in dryer and new vent. Could it be something with the dryer itself? Or is the new duct inadequate too? Dryer heats up well and turns fine. Other hints: New flapper on end of duct at soffet is stuck open when dryer isn't running, and weather has been super hot. Any help appreciated!

  18. Our dishwasher hasn't been drying well, and it started to mildew, so I ran a bleach cycle and then started going over the nooks and crannies with a toothbrush and bleach solution. I also took the opportunity to inspect the air vent (top left when looking at closed door,) which was also mildewed. I disconnected the wax motor and pulled the actual vent out (Part No. Part number: 8545533 ) and while inspecting it, I observed what appears to be a rubber flap valve that, when lying flat, would close the vent openings, but they were curled so that they rested open. Having never looked at one of these vents before, I don't know whether this flap is supposed to lie flat in a "normally closed" position, or curl up in a "normally open" position. I suspect it's supposed to lie flat, and that it is age that has curled it. Any thoughts? Might this help account for the dishwasher not drying well?
