Obviously, the repairman just addressed the symptom without figuring out what was causing the problem. At this point, I was annoyed. We had six loads of laundry that we had to take to the Laundromat. That was just day one.

Adding to the thousands of brand-name appliance parts that are currently available for immediate delivery to consumers, RepairClinic.com now offers Amana parts. Being able to repair your own Amana dryer is a great way to get started saving money, and the Amana appliance parts that consumers need to do the job are now readily available at RepairClinic.com.
"We're committed to making quality appliance parts and repair advice available to help consumers avoid the bite of high repair bills," says Chris Hill, a former appliance technician himself and founder of RepairClinic.com. "With our free diagnostic help, it's fast and easy to save money and time--without calling a service technician."
Just ask Howard M. of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. He tried the service technician route with disastrous results: "When our Amana dryer stopped working, we picked up the phone and called a repairman. He came out and said we had a blown fuse in our dryer and it would cost $100 to repair."
Howard and his wife have two young boys. Plus, they run a daycare out of their home. This means that their Amana dryer is a sort of "command central" when it comes to keeping the household running smoothly. Given their busy schedules, they had the repair done by a technician.
Two months later, though, the fuse blew again. "I couldn't believe it," says Howard. "Obviously, the repairman just addressed the symptom without figuring out what was causing the problem. At this point, I was annoyed. We had six loads of laundry that we had to take to the Laundromat. That was just day one."
How to get free repair advice and affordable appliance part
Howard works as a store manager for a local crafts retailer and had never repaired his own appliances before. Even so, he was determined not to pay a repairman twice for the same repair. He went online to see if he could find help.
He found RepairClinic.com, and the RepairGuru walked Howard through a series of troubleshooting questions. Sure enough, he found his answer quickly. "It was great," says Howard. "The customer service lady walked me through the entire process and I found exactly what I needed. Once the appliance part arrived, I turned a few screws, connected a couple of wires and put the cover back on. Our dryer has been back in business ever since."
