This series of books is the BEST! My husband and I spent weeks putting up with a problem with our washer while he intermittently tried to fix it. He consulted the owner's manual, the parts list, a local appliance parts & repair center and the internet. No luck. He was so frustrated that he was talking about buying a new washer. I found this book at the library. We had the washer fixed in five minutes plus the time it took to take it apart and put it back together (the book made that easier, too!) It works great now.
