back in "the heyday"

many years ago, on our old format, we sometimes veered off subject and gave interesting links. i had bookmarked one of them, it was for appliance repair, and a couple of computers and a couple of browsers later i don't seem to be able to find it. does this sound familiar to anyone? of course i've done a google search and come up with others, but this particular link was excellent with diagrams, pictures, and step by step instructions. if you have it, or were the one who originally posted it, i would be tickled pink to get it again. or if you have a different one to recommend. i fear it may have gone defunct and after finding that out i deleted the bookmark. DS is having washing machine problems and i'd love to be able to help him.

and now for the quilty part... DS is getting married in june and i am working on a black & white double wedding ring where each arc goes from dark to light and back again. after i got over the initial fear, and found just the right fabrics, i am really liking the effect. originally they wanted a black background, but i was able to change their minds -- white will be so much better to work with. it is PP which is something i hate, but only the arcs are like that so it is actually pretty easy.

i also make a tree skirt for each kid and niece or nephew that gets married, so i have two of those done and awaiting quilting for may -- machine quilting, quick and easy. add to that the great news we received on christmas day that DD is pregnant, and another baby quilt is now in my future. guess i better get off the computer and on to the sewing machine!

thanx in advance for any help on the appliance fixing website.

    I don't really know the link, but I'm wondering if it was at about.com. We used to bandy that one about for lots of different things. I haven't been there either in ages--but it might be worth a try.

    Good luck!

    Here is the URL for the About.com home page where you can find some advice on appliance repair:

    thanx to both judys for excellent ideas. none are the one that i used to have, but i did send them along to DS to see if they could help. i bookmarked two of them myself just in case i ever have need of them.

    I was just looking for a dryer part and appliancepartspros.com had a exploded version of different parts of my dryer.

    Have you tried DIY.com? (That's for Do It Yourself - and I think it's from a cable show, which I don't get with my package). They have pretty good info on just about every subject.
