    I read a couple of solutions on your website last week on how to repair, or unclog a refrigerator drain pipe. But I have a much better solution to the problem when the drain is stopped up with frozen water. Open the freezer door and run a Hair Dryer on highest setting for about 10 minutes, longer if needed. You’ll be amazed at how fast the drain will start dripping in the drip pan below instead of inside the refrigerator. I’ve been doing this for several years. It even works when the lines get frozen in ice makers and ice cream machines.

    that’s a good fix but what’s the cause? I’ve found the end of the drain must be kept clear of fuzz and dust bunnies and the inside of the fridge and freezer must have good circulation and not be set over-cold to prevent freeze-ups. Experimentation in location of freezer items should make manually de-icing with a hair-dryer less frequent and fewer semi-thaw of goods necessary.

    My top loading Whirlpool washer will not always go into the final spin.
    A while back we had the same problem and had a switch under the door replaced.Now if I fiddle with the switch it will work if I go thru the whole cycle.
    Do those switches come with any guarentee? I’m trying hard not to let that lid bang down hard.That’s what the repairman said was the main cause for the problem.
    Let me know what to tell my husband.

    I have a Hotpoint Dryer. This dryer is overheating
    and emitting a smell. The longer the dryer runs, the heating element seems to be getting hotter.
    What would I need to do to correct this situation?
    Are there any parts that I could replace?
