Dishwasher fixed, Suspect Nabbed

Okay, normally I would apologize for my previous rant, but I won’t.  I’m still peeved about the three major breakdowns in three years. But the sudden source of water from under the dishwasher wasn’t Maytag/Whirlpool’s fault (I know, knock me over with a feather too!), but instead an uninvited guest.  I present the cause of […]

Not that particular issue again – a whole new one! Yay! I just spent 3 hours following some advice I found on troubleshooting a Maytag dishwasher that lights up but doesn’t run and also the diagnostic guide found on the backside of most kickplates.  As it turns out I think the cable from the touchpad […]

Whirlpool, Maytag, or A&E Factory Service – which to loathe more…

It was April 2010 and the State of Florida had instituted a 20% rebate program if consumers purchased Energy Star compliant appliances – with up to a $75 refund per appliance for proof of recycling. The rebate/refund program website was absolutely slammed and if reports are to be believed, Florida went through the entire budgeted […]
