I Love These
1) I've been selling and using the popular generic
kits for 29 inch (wide) Whirlpool-built dryers for years, but need to make
of a problem that has developed with them in the last 2-3
More and more folks are telling me they're buying
these kits from
other sellers who don't realize there's a defect in their
Turns out they use an idler with a mounting arm that's
made about 5/16"
too short. That causes the idler to run too close to the
on it and making a ton of noise and stressing the belt and
Back when I was selling these I threw those idlers
away by the zillions
and replaced them with the correctly made OEM Whirlpool ones, and
that worked great.
I tried to get the manufacturer to correct that short idler for
without success, so I've given up. [sigh]
So the short answer to the problem is: Only buy
kits, with 'OEM' or 'FSP' on the bag. Avoid the generic
(Chinese) kits like
2) Here's another quick heads-up if your dryer
suddenly stops heating.
I sell a LOT of dryer elements, and more often than I'd like to see,
buyers are wasting time and money by assuming 'no heat' always means
a failed element.
Don't get me wrong, elements do fail - about HALF the
time, in my
experience, but even though it's the first thing that comes to mind,
are several causes for a 'no heat' dryer in addition to an open element.
If your dryer's blowing only cool air, before you
spend any $ on a new
element (or any other parts you assume are bad), be sure to read this
article if you haven't already:
Even though I recommend keeping a spare dryer element (and oven bake
on hand at your house, as we always have, I don't want you to
parts you don't need.
3) Just in case you missed the Lyme resources I've
been posting, here are
several that helped me a lot during my battle with the nastiness:
www.LymeDoctor.com - Dr Singleton's book, 'The Lyme Disease Solution'
www.ILADS.org - Another excellent resource site
www.LymePA.org - From SE PA:
Download free 'The Basics' pdf booklet
Insurance companies appear to be trying to keep it
under wraps, but Lyme
epidemic levels across our nation.
That's going to do it for this issue. As always, if you have any topics you’d
like to see
an online article, let me know and
them. And don't forget those
who've already gotten in touch.
Thanks once again for inviting me into your
inbox. I've said
it many times
before, but it's certainly true: Your trust is my
most valued asset,
never abuse it by sharing your email address or contact
* They tell me it's not 'politically correct' to
say 'Merry CHRISTmas', and
I should be saying 'Happy Holidays', or something else 'less offensive'.
My response is
always the same: I certainly don't intend to offend
not a politician, I'm a CHRISTian, and every December
I celebrate the
changed History (His Story), and my
own life. (I certainly hope
I'm living proof: if you ask Him to take over your life, you will
never be the same!)
Wishing the very best CHRISTmas ever to you and yours!
