Thanks JW, wish I could get a gas one, not an option in this house. I think I'm just going to get that Rheem (GE) and hope like hell that it holds up as well as the last one...At least my husband is actually home and can do the install. Between the navy & other jobs, he's missed almost every appliance repair for the last 20+years. As always, I really appreciate the techs here and the Appliance Junk website. You guys rock!
