With all the other crap we've had to deal with, our old washer gave up the ghost. I tried fixing it, but was not able to definitively find the problem, so rather than throw more money into a 20+ year old washer, we got a new one. Then, the day the new washer is delivered, the old dryer goes out. Same deal, so we got a new matching dryer. Happy Birthday and Father's Day to me!

Hopefully I'll get 20 years out of these. They both got very good reviews on Lowes website. The old units were Kenmore. The Kenmore washer was direct drive and I liked it a lot. This new Whirlpool is belt driven and is much quieter. I think I can get used to it. Looks like belt changes will be a breeze when the time comes.

Some pinlock ear plugs. Between the rf1200 and the effectiveness of the foam ones I’m too isolated and nearly got smacked by a pickup passing me on the left a few weeks back. Review to follow.

And finally some new waterproof boots, 169.00 shipped from Canada off of ebay. No more soggy feet in the rain.
How on Earth are you getting passed by a pickup truck??? o.0

I was turning left into a parking lot to turn around , the driver drove around my left side into the oncoming lane and perpendicular to my direction of travel.

He was nowhere he was supposed to be and caught me off guard as I was beginning to lean and get on the gas. The abrupt stop resulted in the front tucking and my bike laying on US129 in GA with me standing over it going WTF.

Didn't get a tag as it happened too quick and the dirt bag sped off, no doubt proud of themselves.

That is terrifying... Holy crap.
That doesn't fall under "passed" so much as, ran off the road.
Glad to hear it wasn't any worse.

Are those actual manual control knobs and not electronic?

Pretty much, I contemplated how close his mirror came to my helmet for a good long while. The bike made it out with some minor scrapes, frame sliders did a great job on that one.

I suspect part of the maneuver was due to me passing them safely in a two lane passing segment a mile back where they had tired to keep up with me. Apparently the adage has been changed to "if you can't beat them, at least try to clip them"

My guess is that most are electronic swtches.
The dryer timer is probably an actual mechanical timer just like the last 70 years.

We went through a similar situation. Old pair simply would not die. Finally gave up waiting and bought a new set anyway. Looked everywhere to find a new set that was mechanical and did not have all the electronic fancy crap. Not to be found. The salesman was honest enough to tell us the new stuff was designed to last 3-5 years. Sad.

I just went through this with our washer that would no longer function correctly on the Heavy cycle and then the Start button would barely work. Sprayed the mechanical cycle selector and the Start button with this and have been trouble free since.

I repaired alot of appliances for extended family members while in school. It was always switches, timers, belts etc. The motors, transmissions, and bearings never failed back then.

Yes. I've never been awed by all the fancy electronics you can get on W/D sets these days. I really liked my old Kenmore units, but couldn't justify dumping anymore money into them.

I didn't take pictures, because I was too dang hot and stressed out, but a new dual run capacitor, condenser fan motor and fan blade assembly for the A/C unit. The old fan blade assembly is just rusted too bad onto the old motor shaft. I'm just thankful that I know how to do most of this stuff as that would have been an expensive fix to have someone else do. Got the A/C back up and running just as we're hitting 90+ days here in central VA.
