We’ve often consulted Repair Clinic’s website, which offers tips and sells parts, for advice on repairs we’ve given in such pieces as “Can this dryer be saved?” Other appliances we’ve contemplated saving include washers, refrigerators and ranges.
On its YouTube channel, which today lists 116 videos, the Repair Clinic focuses on one appliance at a time. It shoots how-to videos for all the most common replacement parts, before moving on to the next appliance. Those posted so far are specific to Whirlpool-made washers and dryers, though the company says the collection will eventually expand to refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, and ranges made by all major manufacturers.
We’re especially fond of the “unplug” it reminder since we know that attempting a home appliance repair is one of the top causes of home electrocutions.
Repair or replace? Some older appliances aren’t worth saving. See our repair-or-replace timelines based on readers' experiences with products that broke while out of warranty and were professionally repaired. They’re available to subscribers.
DIY web sites like this are very good to help people fix things, when money is short. Very big "THANK YOU" You Tube and the people that make this possible!.
