      [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.

Concern:
Some reported issues of clothes damage during wash.

Cause:
Under certain situations, large loads and some clothing types may contact the bellows, possibly causing clothes damage and premature wear to bellows.

Correction:
IMPORTANT: Always replace the bellows when exchanging the curved glass with the flat glass. Replacing the curved glass in the door assembly with a flat glass will reduce the possibility of clothes contacting the bellows. This modification will improve the life of the bellows and reduce the possibility of damage to clothes.

When ordering the replacement bellows, verify part number in IPL to the model being serviced.
