I just used them to get a part to fix my oven. Cheap and fast shipping.

The clothes washer was leaking "frum up undah" so i pulled the front panel off to investigate. The tub seal had failed, but darn if I didn't prove the existence of the sock monster!
theres an old bra and an old sock down under there.
Called a pro to fix it.
Seal only cost $24, but ya gotta pretty much got to disassemble the machine to get to it.
at least a couple hour job.
I don't have the tools or someone to watch the kid while I "gut it". Can see the child now, running off and hiding small parts I remove. (giggling the whole time).
Yeah, let a pro handle it.

The washing machine is catastrophic. Time to "put it to pasture",says the repairman. Main bearing and tranny are real close to going. Tub seal is gone..
No charge. Cost to repair is equal to a new unit. We'll be shopping for a new model soon I suspect.
