    happened across your site today while researching my whirlpool duet dryer issue (very helpful, by the way).

    I am also a handy guy who enjoys fixing broken things while saving money in the process. Wondering if you are open to having me post an article or two on your blog. I would have one myself, but I just don’t have the drive to maintain it.

    My most recent project was my whirlpool fridge. The water solenoid went out. I researched the part and fixed it myself for about $35.

    I have also fixed my multi-function switch in my Ford Explorer, painted my house, punched some holes in the walls and fixed my kid’s broken Rock Band drumset (for the Wii).

    I also enjoy working with wood. I built a bunk bed and a train table, and a wood working bench.

    I am not a professional fixer/builder. In fact I’m a band teacher. I just like fixing and saving.

    Drop me an email if you are interested.

    I used your home repaired site to repair my whirlpool duet dryer and I liked the repair manual. Is there a manual for the was model number GHW9200GL. The washer walks in high spin. I think it has latest electronic board for this. Any help would do.

    Hello, I found your site when researching how to fix my whirlpool duet dryer. I appreciate your helpful information. I followed your instructions but unfortunately when I took off the front I found the wire connected to the white plastic piece (your first direction) was burnt and broken. When I traced the red wire it goes thru the entire dryer. Is there a way to fix or do I have to call a service person?

      I would check to see if it looked like the wire was rubbing up against something hot and got melted through. If it looked like that was the cause, I would take the wire to the electrical supply store and get a replacement, and make sure it was routed in such a way it didn’t brush against our heating element. Good luck, and sorry about the time to reply.
