What about the felt thing on the back of the drum, can should i replace it ? It seem to be attached to drum very well.  But the back is frayed where it moves against the dryer frame.  As long as it is open ?

 

Do you sell the double prong by itself ?

I don't think RepairClinic sells the coils individually, but for the pair, it's about $19 + shipping

it would be a good idea to replace the felt

So what do I owe you guys for this fine work.  Does it matter if I order coils from you or my local store?

 

The local guy asnswered several questions yesterday but they want $40 for the part.

 

I want to be fair to whoever helped me, please answer the grasshopper, he want to do the right thing.

This forum board isn't run by RepairClinic, just reffered to that parts place. 

It doesn't matter much. If you need the parts NOW, and want to pay more... then local is OK.

Although the price difference isn't much as compared to maybe a controller board.

Local electrical  parts are not usually returnable, but it seems almost for sure that coil is your problem.

Hey Reg

 

All this time I've been listening to some guy from Milwaukee named Charlie Sykes talk about those evil progressives up in Wisconsin.

 

You really need to get out of there.

Parts bught thru this site help fund the forum and keep it online, the Samurai gets a kick back for parts bought thru this forum...and if parts are bought at repair clinic they can be returned if it does not solve the problem....that said you are free to buy them wherever you need to do so, if you buy them locally most likely a nice donation to the Samruai "beer Fund" which is another name for "donations to keep this forum up and running" might be in order since some of our members were very nice and spent a lot of time helping you with the dryer problem.....you decide and have a good day...;)...Pegi

I don't listen to those types of talk shows. The host ususally just tries to instigate the listeners one way or the other just to get them talking....

 

Where are you ?  Your location isn't listed in your profile

So Cal  He was sitting in for a host out here and he said he was from Milwaukee.

 

You're better off not listening. I'm waiting for the Dems to come up with a program to address the Appliance Repair Crisis and the high cost of parts to fix your dryer:)

 

They want us to go back to clotheslines.:yikes:

Dear Samurai,

I desire most humbly to thank you for all your help for helping me to get back into the good graces of my wife.  I replaced both coils which I purchashed locally for $45.00 (ouch), installed, and it fired up really really nice.  Blow really hot  !!!!!!

I could not have done it without your patience and wisdom:cool:  Especially when I nearly blow the %$#@! house up and have to wash my underwear.

Two questions before we part company until the next crisis and noookie supply is on the line.

Should I replace thermal fuse of is this just not necessary ?:?

The top of the dryer have many scratches and rust on top.  How can I restore to like new?  Should go for another twelve years now you think.

You guys/gals are great.  if you come to CA drop by and I will provide you with favorite beverage.

You should really get out of Millwaukee and move to real city.  Too many bowling alleys and drunk drivers.  Brett Favre was smart enough to leave.

Good luck and have fun at Summerfest :cool:  My dream is too visit Oshkosh for Air Festival.

Can you help me replace engine on airplane?:yikes:

 

Grasshopper signing off.

thermal fuse would be a good idea, now that the dryer is working ($14 on line)

paint touch-up, depending on how bad the rust is, you could just use some good enamel paint, Rustoleum maybe. I'll look better than it does now...

Wisconsin... no earthquakes....and don't forget the Bratwurst.

I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI and "survived" a direct tornando strike give me an 7.5 anyday.

Bratwurst, you got a point there.  Do they still have Old Style beer?

yes, and no.

In 1996, Heileman's was purchased by the Stroh Brewing Company, including the Old Style name. In 1999, Pabst bought out Stroh's and shortly thereafter licensed out all brewing to Miller. When Pabst bought the Old Style name, it did not buy the beer's recipe.

The original Heileman's/Old Style brewery in La Crosse is now owned by the City Brewing Company. City Brewing Company is now brewing La Crosse Lager, which is the original Old Style recipe and is krausened for 30 days.

(actually I don't drink beer)

how about these:

Old Milwaukee

Schlitz

Blatz

Hamm's (ok, Minnesota)
