Thought crossed my mind many times in the past with several machines that have acted up. I go thru connecting & disconnecting connections, cleaning suspect connections with brush & electrical connection cleaner. Knock on wood have not been back yet. But I do guarantee my work & if I do I have parts to repair if indeed a part has gone bad.
Being down along lower Texas coast the salt air plays havoc with electrical & mechanical components. It will rust stainless steel in a few years also if not taken care of with SS cleaner.
I post good or bad results to keep everyone informed when I seek assistance, Although I don't believe I will be back anytime soon, I did give a years guarantee on electrical problems with the machine (that is how I justify the Blue book pricing which is in another topic.
I will post up if I do go back for a follow up repair on this washer. Nothing worse than not following thru posting results on this forum.
for all feedback. I have lots more to learn before I am almost perfect. Nobody is perfect. Patricio
