May the hinges of our friendship

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.
I love fan letters! LOL

You come up with this:

Note: this is one of them new drumless models just kiddin already had it tore apart and then decided to snap a few when chris got out of school  :rofl:
I went ahead and connected 120 to the machine and ran the dryer so I would know the motor was ok. It is sweet. I move the suicide cord over to the other leg and neutral and ran the washer, she spins and pumps fine. Added some water to the washer so far no leaks. Blew out the tubing to the tub I think trash was in there because it was mentioned there was a leak. I do not see any though so far.

Just for fun I removed the 2 screws on bottom of the washer. This machine was missing the pigtail, (I put a new cord on also, 4 foot 30 amp 3 prong) so I suspect Larry got it from an auction at the Wings of life. You yank downwards a hair then remove the panel to get to the washer innards. I also put a new belt on the dryer. Then it got dark on me. Tomorrow I take this puppy on a test run.

I do have it all back together. Only had 3 or 4 screw left over LOL. It is much easier to install the dryer front panel with the door removed. That sucker is heavy. I got about a ton of lint out of it and from behind the drum. The element, the rear bearing, the fuse, and everything else is fine. The belt was broken and has been replaced. It is a pain to get back on because of the height. Had to stand on Grannys old shower stool to make sure that belt was not twisted and the felt was not out of position. It's all good now. Forgot to check continuity on the door switch dangit. Oh well we will know tomorrow if that dawg will hunt. This seems to be a sweet machine. It is heavy as hell though.  :2funny:

Good thinking, the stackables I've seen are shoved into tiny closets. >:(

Or an old but newly remodeled bathroom, and they have to fix it because they can't get it out without taking out half the remodel job...
