Front load washer repair recommendation

Anyone know a good appliance repair shop? The gasket on our front-loader is leaking. I'd prefer to use a recommendation I get on WCF than other sources.

Thanks.

Joe: I appreciate your confidence. I watched that video before posting my question. The question isn't 'can I do it?' - I can. The question is 'do I want to fuck with it?' The answer is 'no I don't.' I'd much prefer to save the time for other things & pay someone to fix it. But I really do appreciate your confidence in me. :D

Fuck no. But I pride myself on being able to prioritize my time. Fucking with a washing machine means less fishing. I'm old, retired & can afford to pay somebody else to do this shit. You're smart - you'll figure it out. :D

Great idea (I think). Turn a washing machine into a camper.

Reminds me of the time we were visiting an old friend - a retired school superintendent - who lives in a beautiful farm house on a hill outside of Brattleboro, VT. He had just finished building a really neat cart for gardening. He'd built 2 - one for himself & one for a friend.

I said, "I've got a great idea. Why don't you start making these in volume. We could corner the market & make millions. Then you could retire and buy yourself a beautiful farm house on a hill in Vermont." :lol:

My brother has an appliance repair biz. He won't even touch them. Wizbang get's out of hand. I remember when I first started in HVAC there was nothing I could not get going at least temporarily out of my truck.

Exactly how felt climbing on my roof yesterday. As I got to the top of the ladder I was thinking 'wtf am I doing right now'. Then when I got up there I started contemplating again for about 5mins before even moving an inch. The worst was trying to get down, thought about calling the fire department for a split second :D .

I came up with the genius idea of parking my truck close by and using the ladder out of the truck bed. :sarcasm: I figured that would save me about 3-4feet if I fell.

^^^^ Marcus that is the classic “ what not to do” that every construction safety video depicts. I was forced to watch them monthly.

It’s actually not a bad idea.

I had to post the pic, only way you guys could see how hilarious it actually was. I had the bottom of the ladder pinned against the back of the truck bed, plus with the sprayed bed liner, I figured that had more friction than my driveway.

Doing a good job, staying within budget, OSHA compliant. Pick two.

Except if it was an OSHA video the truck would start rolling back, holding up the ladder, until it final backs into a powerline, electrocuting half the block. Upon arrival, the rookie cop responding to the scene walks right up to the hot ladder and also becomes incapacitated.

"THIS COULD BE YOU."

I'm not sure if Steve is retired or not but he was/is a mechanical genius. Save info for future reference.

Had Sears do it. Watched the guy - he knew shortcuts that weren't in the vid. Pays to have pros do the work.
