      [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.

Have had a few of those washers apart, they used a different material for the motor coupling in those, almost like a fabric belt that you might see on an old baler, or snowmobile track

This is a very good deal. Can't get a Roper set for this price...

I picked up a few sets for our property management customers (future sales).

According to the Home Depot guy--this is "While Supplies Last" and ends NOV 17 rather than the 28th.

That's the washer and dryer I have, and I love them. I'll keep mine as long as I can before I buy any of the overengineered piece of junk front load washers and the overengineered matching dryer.

It's a very good deal, but too bad they're the tin foil version of a surprisingly sturdy design

The whole machines are just cheaper the last few years - lighter metal (more noise), chincy switches and timers etc. Obviously they are good enough, but they were a pretty astute machine for some years

OK so would it be safe to say the ROPER line with the "V" in the same placement in the model # will have the "good" old Transmission & "good" mechanical Water Level Switch ?
