Question for appliance repair techs

(1/3) > >>

maypo52:
I was wondering how you handle a service call on a stacked washer/dryer combo? For instance, if the problem is on the washer and you have to dis-assemble it, you have to remove the dryer from the top first. What do you do? Bring an assistant with you? It has to be a big problem if you are working alone, especially on the full size stackable combos.

Regards,

Mark

if someone in the home seems able bodied i will ask them to help remove the dryer, if there is no help to be had then i have to reschedule for another day and have the shop lackey meet me to help remove the dryer

i do alot of frigidaire, the original style front load set by them the washer top is removed when the dryer is stacked, so you can just pull it away from the wall and tilt the dryer against the wall to access the washer timer,dispensor  etc

I use something called the All-Dolly (formerly the ov-dolly) by Warren Brown Enterprises. I can easily just put the dryer to the side at washer level and do what needs to be done to the washer. The hard part is always gettng the vent back on the right way. I also find a lot of washer problems can be solved without removing the dryer through the front access panel.
