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 have a 50 gallon State Appliance electric storage tank

i have a 50 gallon State Appliance electric storage tank water heater and am contemplating conversion to a tankless water heater. i live in a full 4 seasons climate and so I have heard that I can't rely on an electric tankless because the groundwater will be too cool at times. What is involved with switching over to a natural gas tankless (and does it matter if it is an indoor or outdoor install). Thank you.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher. Model # SHE65T56UC/07. It was

I have a Bosch Dishwasher. Model # ***** It was working great. Best dishwasher I've ever had but here's my problem. Somehow a jar with a candle was put it to was. The candle basically dissolved and now there is wax all over. I took out the micro-filter, the filter tube that supplies water to the impellers and the impellers themselves. There is nothing more on the bottom of the machine I can take out and clean. I used a brush, rag and mineral spirits and removed all visible wax. I also removed all the wax on the stainless steel interior. I've also cleaned out the large hole in the bottom where the micro-filter goes.My question is, what else can I do? I'm guessing there might be wax in the tube that feeds the impellers and maybe down through the pump. I've taken every internal part out and thoroughly cleaned them.What to do next?? Where is the pump and do you think I should try to remove that too and clean it? I did install the machine so I know how to take it out again. Do you suggest anything else. There was a great deal of wax tat the filter and micro-filter caught but since the heat liquefied it who knows?You've helped me before so I'm hoping you have a good save here.
