Glad to hear it all worked out.
I thought I would go back again to see if there were any more comments and there you were with more info.
By default you should get a email when someone post a reply to a topic you started.
Also if you look at the top and bottom of this topic you will notice a tab that say's "NOTIFY". If you click on that you will be notified of any new replies.
The notify tab works with any topic not just ones you started. There is also a notify tab for each board (sear, maytag, whirlpool, etc.) too.
You can also go to your profile page and change Notifications and Email
Thanks for posting the part number.
