It’s a Wash!

It’s a Wash!

A few months ago I posted about my washer issue here and used RepairClinic.com to diagnose the problem and then ordered a new lid switch. All I had to do was provide my model number and chose from of a list of issues and viola!, I had a part on the way. (The advantage of RepairClinic.com is that you can return the part for a full refund if it turn out that it’s not what’s broken) Read the rest of this entry
