Question about Washing Machines
I am in lakewood, and again, ya know what I did? I just reversed the stinkin hoses and am washing on the warm/warm cycle which is of course cold cold being that the hot water is dead , better than a sharp stick in the eye for now. I heard that frigidaire washers are notoriously razor sharp, I was told by one repairman that its almost as if frigidaire doesnt own a metal file or metal sander in the whole corp. and you know when you are sent out on a frigidaire repair you are gunna get cut,gloves too bulky for the fine toothed motor skills, I have never seen a repairman doning a pair of gloves EVER, but plenty of battle wounds. So for now, longer story longer, I am going to be happy to wash in just cold, s-h-i you know the last letter, I am hard pressed to get into these guts, wires and such, I know nothing about this stuff, I am not a repairman, and as much as I would love to fly a rocket to the moon, simply the desire to do so doesnt make me an astrounuat no matter how many step by step instructions I am given. I know my limitations now, seeing the **** of taking that back panel off, it looks as though I have to remove the top front and back the way it is all put together, if you know of any good repairmen in southern california lemmie know.I can order the part I dont know if that would take the first two hundred off lol seriously I will purchase a brand new washer for the costs here for the replacement of that stinkin valve, it really is crappy, i think i would find great joy in pushing the washer over the cliff before i hand over the family food shelter gasoline and utilities money...I am sure I am not the only one in this boat,so unless you see any reason why i should at this point go on and attempt to repair it myself do you think I can get away with the washing in cold or is it a matter of only a short while before the other side goes out? i just dont get it. I am not going to test ohms nor the continuity at the switch, i have absolutely NO CLUE as to what I am doing, the back of the washer looked scarey enough the hoses scared me, I know sad, I hope you got a good laugh out of my attempt at the big boys stuff, this is why I am against womens libbers, I know my place and I am grateful as hell to all the men in the world who take good care of us women truely, this is guy stuff, I am going to go make banana pudding for our dessert and start marinating our chicken for our grilled lime cilantro garlic chicken and wash a couple more loads of laundry clean the front and back bathroom give a couple of kids baths set my hair feed the 90lb dog and the cats and finish putting away the costco stuff and somewhere between all of this wrap up the painting in the front room, i start school next week and i am carrying a full load of classes so s..h....i....you know the rest. Buying a new one looks better and better.
Wish i had found someone like you 36 yrs ago ! if you want to go back to cold/cold pop the top and just switch the wires between the coils now cold setting will match hose configuration..good luck with the classes gene
