Thanks, AJ!
look in the troubleshooting section. I would personally look for kinks and blockage. try blowing air through the tubing.
Look at Section 3-6
tch_tech,  I think you misunderstood my post,  Profit is fine and necessary to keep a business going, the problem I see is short term vs. long term thinking; not just the manufacturers, but the buying public also.  We run across town to get whatever has the most features, even if most of these features go unused in our actual use of the product.  We pass up a better quality product to get less quality that "looks like the better product" for a few dollars less.
In his comic strip POGO, Walt Kelly really said it best with the twisted quote of Commodore Perry, "we have met the enemy, and he is us"!!!
Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool new valve already failed?

Interesting. Low water pressure can cause a leaky valve. Did not knoe that...
You never have a customer not change a water filter on a fridge only to have ice maker issues? frozen fill tube? The reduced water pressure causes the valve to close "softly" instead of "snapping" shut. The good old weeping water valve.

Water pressure is what closes the valve

Very well put TOSG. Sadly, ours is a disposable society. Has been for awhile now. Credit has alot to do with it.  If its broke, can it and charge the new one. No appreciation for something you own outright compared to something you make monthly payments on. Makes no sense what so ever. Just take a look at the 20 to 50 year old age groups. I'm right in there and I work to make money. Lots of it. As much as I can. But I fix everything I can, not throw it away. I don't have to finance a $100-200 pcb. (But alot of people do because they are so far in debt).  Everywhere you look, it's credit offers for all things "stuff".  And if there is a market for it (and there is), manufacturers will continue to make profits. And they should. Supply and demand. And the creditors will continue to make much more.

Until the spending habits and the mindset of Americans changes drastically, you are probably right.
Dryer Repair / Re: Kenmore electric dryer not heating.

I think the power is ok.  I had my sons dryer in my garage and moved it in, and it is working fine.  Is there an easy way to test the switch?  Is it seperate from the motor, or would I be looking at replacing the motor?
