I Love These
1) I've been selling and using the popular generic
kits for Whirlpool-built dryers for years, but need to make
of a problem that has developed with them in the last 2-3
years or so.
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
I've been throwing those idlers away by the zillions and
with the correct length one from another company for a long
and that works great. All the kits I sell have the correct
Other than the idler issue, these are decent kits, but I've
been trying to
get the manufacturer to correct that short idler for a
couple of years
without success. [sigh]
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 element.
If your dryer's blowing only cool air, before you
spend any $ on a new
element, be sure to read this article if you haven't already:
Even though I recommend keeping a spare dryer (and oven bake) element
on hand at your house, as we always have, I don't want you to buy any
parts you don't need.
3) Just in case you missed the Lyme resources I've
been posting, here are
have helped me a lot:
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
discussed here or covered in
an online article, let me know and
best to cover
them. And don't forget those
suggestions)! Many thanks to
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
* PS - They tell me it's not 'politically correct' to
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!
