I see you have NOT replied back to me .
Do you still need assistance on your question?
If not I see you have not rated me as of yet!
Even after you rate me if you have a question just reply back to me,
I will still assist you ,but rating me 5 STARS is the ONLY way I get paid for my time .

I'm sure you don't work for free, so please don't expect that I should.

I appreciated the expertise imparted and just recently received the parts and had the opportunity to fix my dryer. I however did not appreciate the tone of your email dated 28 December. I could not have fixed my dryer on my own without your advice and you tube.
