Tyler, I'm trying to get into a GE Gas cooktop, Model

Tyler, I'm trying to get into a GE Gas cooktop, Model JGP975SEK1SS. It has five burners. I can't get it open, but the only thing apparently holding it is one burred Torx screw #10 and maybe the insulated spark electrodes, you know, the white caps? I guess I can drill out the burred Torx screw (I didn't do it. It was that way when I got there.) but where can you get Torx screws? If I get that out, shouldn't I be able to just lift up the top and disconnect the spade connectors (I think) on the bottoms of the electrodes? I'm trying to change a wiring harness.

I am replacing my Maytag steam front loading washer and

I am replacing my Maytag steam front loading washer and dryer with new Maytag steam washer/dryer. I don't want to pay $500.00 to replace my perfectly good pedestals. Can I use them with a few adjustments?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 7 years old and they are Maytag Performance Series 5000. The book has W10176966A and W10207213-SPJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes. My husband is a contractorJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I just have seen different answers. obviously Maytag will say no because they want us to purchase new. I would rather spend that money to get the upgraded models of both machines. The control board went out on the dryer and the technician told my husband that the part is $500.00 and we are already into the repair $100.00 so he recommended and we decided it would be better to replace and we will sell the washer.

I'm at a 2 year old answer for Working on GE Laundry Center

I'm at a 2 year old answer for Working on GE Laundry Center GTUP270EM1WW washer. Had a leak. I've the same problem. Your wrote Yeah, that is a nightmare and will take a tremendous amount of time. The tub assembly needs to come out and the entire transmission assembly removed to replace that seal. If it is just the center seal, the part is $10, so bid the labor very high! That manual will walk you through it if you get the repair, The seal is number 304 below.Where can I find the manual you are referring to?

I have a Whirlpool LHA5800N1 washing machine. It no longer

I have a Whirlpool LHA5800N1 washing machine. It no longer agitates, but everything else works fine (fill, spin, drain). This happened 10 years ago, and I fixed it by replacing the solenoid wig-wag - but this time replacing the wig-wag didn't fix it. I swapped the wires for the spin and the agitate solenoids, and then the agitate worked in the spin cycle, but it didn't spin in the agitate cycles. Any advice for me?
