Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

Products made in China

If you buy an expensive dishwasher or other electronic device and it's made in China, beware. China is getting better at making things but there are a lot of improvements needed. If you still buy it for whatever reason, you would be wise to buy the "Extended Warranty" You will probably get a brand new unit that will probably last about as long as the first one unless you get lucky.

freezer lights not working tried bulbs in fridge area and they work so its not the bulbs


Then it's the freezer door switch that controls the light. Although, modern fridges have electronic control boards designed to make your life miserable. Instead of a simple switch with a wire to a light bulb, you may have an entire computer board controlling it. The boards are _always_ expensive as heck. You can try applianceparts.com for replacement parts for your specific model.

(It was the words "Professional Series" that gave me "pause" regarding the electronic wallet cleansing you may have to deal with. I'm sorry, but I'm an old appliance tech that has lived long enough to see these appliances become unnecessarily too expensive to repair a problem that would otherwise have been an incredibly simple and cheap to repair... and frequently not even need a new part. Technology does no favors for owners regarding appliances. It is a cheap way out for the manufacturers because electronic circuit boards made in China are cheaper than the electro-mechnaical devices they replaced, yet cost many hundreds of dollars to buy a replacement circuit board; which is quite literally a scam designed to make you buy a new appliance).

i am looking at purchasing a bosch dishwasher what is better and less expensive to fix and won't break down as much direct drive or belt driven dishwasher


The usual parts to fail in dish waters are the water pumps, the door fittings and latches and the electronic control boards. So I would not worry too much about the motors which drive the spray arms as these are generally the last item to fail.

I would also buy an ASKO over a Bosch any day of the week.

Why should I buy a china cabinet for my home?


There are many reasons I would recommend owning a china cabinet. They are a great decorating tool, presenting your expensive china as ornamentation. They also provide your fine china with a protective home. You can buy cabinets with doors that lock for better protection. Lastly, if you don't have any china to display, they can be a great display case for another type of collection you may have.

which is the best chinese mobile phone


I wouldn't buy any chinese phones, they are all made lowcost as possible, so they are not too durable. Altought, they are cheap, I wouldn't recoment any more expensivier chinese electronics. Just save up some more money, and buy brande phone.
And also, when something broke, you must send it to China for your own expenses. So, I do NOT recomment tobuying phone from China.

i am recieving an SE code on my samsung dishwasher. I tried to reset the dishwasher by switching off the power to the machine for 20 minutes. still SE message


I'm getting the same message too. I turned it off for awhile and I had a technician come out and take a look. My drainage pipes are all clear (SE code can mean that drainage is not working properly). He suggested that I get a "Samsung" tech out to take a look at the circuit board/electrical issue. Want to know the crazy thing? This is my second dishwasher that Samsung replaced....all the same electrical issue.....and just last week someone called me to see if I wanted to buy an extended warranty on it. Hmmmm.....do they know that this a piece of junk? It was an expensive dishwasher too.....doesnt clean any better than my cheap model did and it sure has a lot more problems in this first year than the whole 5 years that I had my other dishwasher. Can you tell im disgruntled?
I would love to hear if there is a simple fix to this SE problem.
