I have been fixing appliances and a many other mechanical things since my early teens.
When I went to the CONTRACTOR’S store, they treated me like a young dumb kid that shouldn’t be allowed to buy repair parts, or the part is unavailable. Thanks to the Internet and places like PARTSELECT.COM, I can buy the parts I need and not have to call a shysters repairman to rip me off. provided me with the parts I wanted without disputing me. They also provide simple, clear, and to the point instructions for replacing the old parts. Even someone doubting their own ability can handle a complicated repair. not only has the major parts that fail, like motors, but also the little things like switches, knobs, trims, handles, seals, and all the other minor parts.
