i am haveing a rash of appliances here at my house that are starting to gang up on me first my washer and dryer are a matching set of hotpoint brand. the washer went out and a 13 dollar cam and a 2 dollar strap and i was back in business no labor cost as i did the repairs 2-3 days after that the dryer ignighter went out! i forget how much 60-80 dollars and it was back in operation,again i did the repair. the washer a week or two after that developed a lovely habit of continueing to fill after it was supposed to be full and flooded out or laundry room more times than i care to mention or remember. (still aint figured that one out) we have to baby sit it through its cycles or it will do it again. then the dryer spoke up and started to make a very annoying screech like a belt squeel and then once in a while it would grab a garmet and pinch it inbetween the drum tumbler and rim and tear a nice little rip out of it and make a awefull noise. fortuanately it has quit that . now the stove a frigidaire with speed bake feature all of a sudden decides to start flippin out. it sometimes works fine other times it will take several hours to bake a 30 minute item and it also will sometimes skip the preheat and just goes right on and heats up with out the little audible alert. im thinking its in the brain (NOT MINE):lol: or computer part of it . any ideas would be appreciated. thanks darryl by the way the stove is about 3 years old the w/d are about7-8 yrs old.
