Hi. The whirlpool duet series would be a great choice. This unit cleans very well and the cycle times are sufficient. It has its draw backs as does all the other units in this particular class. It is not a perfect unit in any way. The components are very reliable, if used correctly and not abused. The number one issue with this unit will be the detergent standards. The HE brand powder or liquid detergents are the only formula that can be inserted into the dispenser. This is very important when concerning this class of unit. If you run a non HE detergent in this machine, you will clog up the dispenser and drain age assembly,thus, producing a heavy SUD condition. This will shutdown the unit and clog the hoses at the dispenser and drain pump assemblies. This over SUD issue will cause an over draw on the pump motor,thus, ruining the motor and possibly shorting the CCU(Central control unit). To prevent this common disaster, simply, use the HE detergent formula at all times and do not over fill the dispenser. If you can remember that, then, it will last for a very longtime. I would recommend the liquid HE formula over the powder, due to the fact that, it will dissolve quicker and wash out well. The last warning when using this type of washing unit will be to NEVER overload the drum and always clean the drain filter, periodically. The fill capacity will be located in your user manual when you make the purchase. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the capacity level of the unit. NEVER overfill past the satisfactions, If you do overfill, those actions will damage the motor and motor controller, thus, costing you hundreds of dollars in service calls and replacement parts. You can prevent that by simply staying within the specifications of the load requirements..

In conclusion; This is a great unit, but it can fail just like the others if you abuse it. Be sure to read the user manual fully and use it with care.

Have a great day:)

Machine will drain but not spin machine is 25 yrs old- should I fix or buy new one and if I buy what do you reccommend?

I would have someone come look at it and give you their opinion. But if you really want a new one, it depends on what you are looking to buy. Here are a few criteria I tell my customers when looking for new. 1. Stick with a name you have grown up with (i.e. Maytag, GE and Whirlpool) 2. Make sure you can get reliable warranty and after warranty care. Also part availabilty at local parts places. You don't want to be with out a washer for 6 weeks would you ? 3. Don't let a salesman sell you the product go in wanting to buy the product. 4. I always give my customers the option of calling me when out shopping so they get my honest opinion of a product. I do not sell them so I am a little more unbiased than salesman. So find you servicer you are very comfortable with and ask his opinion. This is where having a trusted and honest servicer that you constantly use comes in handy. Hope I answered your questions, if not post again and i'll try to answer.

Can't activate MSoffice small bus 2007 with current product key.

Hi Lisa,

If you only used the MS Office Small Business product key once then i'm pretty sure that you can use it 2 more time before Microsoft determines that that its been used too many times. This means you shouldn't have to buy another product key from Microsoft.

First of all you need to uninstall MS Office Home and Student first. Don't try using the other product key that came with the setup disks because it won't work. Or the product key with the laptop because that is for the operating system.

To unistall Home and student go to the Control Panel and select unistall a program as i expect the operating system is Windows 7 seeing as its a new laptop. If its Vista then its under Programs and Features in the Control Panel.

Look for all instances of MS Office and uninstall them if there are more than one. This is because if you have installed MS Small business as well as having MS H&S there could be a conflict.
When your done unistalling Office H&S or/and Small Business restart your laptop and get your setup disks for Small Business and install it. It should accept the product key that came with that and let you activate it.

If it doesn't then you need to give Microsoft a call and explain to them you had it installed on a computer that crashed and the key had been used only once. They should then provide you with an activation code or key.

Good luck and if there is anything else please post back.

Canon might cover this machine as some times they will cover it as its only be 13 months depending what country you are in.

well the MP830 is a very good product and i would think about keeping it. I would maybe look at other new machines like mx850 and see if its worth buy a new one.

Where abouts are you in the world as can repair your machine if you are in the uk.

power surges will damage the machine depending how much damage it has done, it could off blown main board, psu, cartridges, printhead. So it could be worth buying a new machine.

If you are looking new machine look at the mx850.
