boring thread of the day but might be useful. I have a hand me down stack washer/dryer from my mom that she bought new in 1987, Been in my hands since I got out of college 8 years ago. A few days ago it made a nasty squeal on the spin cycle and emitted a burning rubber smell, I thought it had finally bit the dust after 18 years. Got around to looking into it today found a mangled sock stuck between the inner and outer baskets. Got it out and works like new, even the 18 year old belt that had been smoked looked OK. This is my 3rd “repair” of it, first was a small relay shortly after I got it, and second was a broken drive belt on the dryer a few years ago. The belt was annoying because it required quite a bit of disassembly. Good stuff, who knows how long this thing can run with normal maintenance? Puts up with greasy uniforms and still gets them clean. I was kind of looking foreword to getting that fancy Neptune set, but dam its expensive, put that off as long as possible.
