not authorised to download manual
« on: January 18, 2013, 03:19:43 PM »
I was trying to download the manual for the maytag neptune top load washer here:
http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;id=28
and it says I am not authorized.


It doesnt give me an option to pay.

In a effort to get a little more discussion going in our forum I'm going to try something new with the service manual downloads.

Start a new topic in our forum and ask for the service manual.

Post your topic in the correct board.

Topics about washer going in the "Washers" board. Topics about dryers go in the "Dryers" board and so on.

In your topic include a description of what is wrong with the appliance and the model number.

If there is a service manual available for your model I will send it to you via PM.

Most importantly be sure to update your topic as to what you ended up finding wrong with the appliance.

it says I am not authorized.

Now the message you will receive after clicking the download button says...

Quote

To receive a service manual first Login or Register. Then start a new topic in our forum.
In your topic include the appliance model number and a description of what is wrong with the appliance.

If there is a service manual available for your model we will send it to you through our forum.


I'm more then happy to share the service manual downloads. All I'm looking for in exchange is a little information about what's wrong with the appliance and hopefully what it took to repair it. IMHO that's not to much to ask for and we can all benefit from that kind of information.

Sharing information is what this forum is all about, but as it is we have a lot of members downloading service manuals for free and never posting in our forum. I would like to change that if I could.

That is a great idea.

I'm happy to tell long tales of my travails in appliance repair, if I can get a free manual out of it.

Heck, I'd piss & moan about my travails, even if I thought one person would view the topic!

Helping people to get it done is great.

Having the people helped respond with feedback is even greater!

I agree, AJ,  it is important to post what you found the problem being after you ask for help.   It is the only way all of us can expand our knowledge base on certain models,  for example the VMW>    We have a thread I started months ago and it can help all of us in understanding the quirks of these appliances.    I have learned alot from other's solutions to problems.  That's why I try to help where I can and post weird and new solutions to encountered problems we haven't seen before.

I have an idea............   I plan on going through my collections of manuals and tech info that I have accrued,  and I will see what and if any manuals I have that you don't.  I'll send them to you to help out everyone.    I just haven't had the time lately,   been very busy with personal and with very busy with work.   I would encourage all of our "group' of technicians to do the same.   By combining our resources,  we can help all of us do our jobs easier.
