Both outside door handles turned very beige

Everything worked perfectly---thanks to the suggestion of your call center agent. She suggested that since the replacement door handles were no longer available, I should consider repainting them--it worked like a charm. Please tell her she was a life saver. We rent that house in Fl and my returning tenants had complained about the discoloring refer handles. Thank you

I replaced the male end first hoping that a change in the female part would not be needed. Unfortunately no. I used needle nosed pliers to pry the male part out and pushed the new part in. The female part of the door catch was more difficult. I didn't do it in "textbook" form, but got the job done with pliers and a screwdriver. Worth every penny to fix correctly instead of rigging it. Do it!

Just before leaving for vacation, we discovered that the dryer was not heating the air at all. Its an electric dryer, so did the basic troubleshooting, put ohm meter on the dryer element and found it was open circuit. Ordered the replacement element and it arrived while were were gone on vacation. My wife and daughter came home early from the beach to get kid ready to go to college. They needed the dryer, so I was able to walk them through replacing the element over the phone.

Amazing that they were able to get this done, but really just says how easy it was.

Dryer wouldnt heat up

  • Customer: Carol from Apopka FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

Removed toe plate, make sure and use something like a 5 in 1 painters tool, makes the job easier as you will see a notch inside the seam between toe plate and outer shell, take 1 screw from heater tube cover I used a nut driver, this job is best to use with a stubby socket set, there are 2 machine screws with hex heads holding the heating element to the heating tube, you cant really see the heads but can feel them with your fingers, disconnect the 2 terminals in front of this, but make sure you use a blue or black sharpie to mark the terminals, use your stubby and remove screws, then use a set of needle nose pliers and pull out the heating element, the new heating element slide right in the grooves then reverse the take off process, good luck

Super easy repair. Funny to think I almost called to have it serviced before I found the Door Catch Kit. The original catch had actually fell into the door so when I got the new part it simply snapped in no tools needed!
