I hope you can help me with these seemingly simple questions!
1) Why has GE stopped making Filter-Flo machines? The ones that
recirculate wash water and pass it through a strainer so the lint and
cat hair doesn't stay on your clothes? It was good enough for 40
years. (1957-1996). GE said they don't make them anymore, but didn't
give me a real response as to why.
2) Why do the commercial front loaders at laundromats accept regular
detergent, but the consumer ones need "HE" stuff so the aluminum
casting doesn't corrode? Who's the genius who put aluminum in contact
with steel in water?
3) Where can I get the special tools required to remove the inner tub

angled. I can't see very well as the thing is covered in lime and I
can't find anything on the web. I'm gonna try to rebuild an old
4) Why is the appliance repair group on Yahoo so useless?
