It is a real shame, especially at this time of year.  Maybe the company should cut
some of the fat and put more into quality control. I do a lot of work for a small town appliance store and it is an embarassmet when you deliver 2 new washers
(still in box) to the same customer that don't work and a 3rd is tested before attempting to deliver that doesn't work, all 3 same model with same defective
temperature switch. I have had 2 new Dryers go out that no belts or idler pulleys
(out of the box) I had 1 last month that wire harness was not connected to the motor nor the limit switches.  Issues like these do not bolster consumer confidence. I can't imagine why sells are dropping off. The company I worked for dropped there Applaince department (to much negative feedback)

If that type of quality control is that crappy then the layoffs are justification.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
