Addressing your title question. No, no break-in required - it was better "instantly." If you only replaced the belt, you probably did not solve the problem; the broken belt may have been a symptom of other issues with the drum drive train, making it harder to turn and stressing the belt as a result. I just did a similar repair (my belt was not broken - but ...

Tighten the spring on the idler pulley. Or the old belt broke because the bearings are shot (not good, in my experience that's new washer time). Actually on a dryer, it's worth it/much easier to replace the bearings and glides. If the drum doesn't spin freely without the belt, you may want to go ahead and a take a look at the drum glides and see if ...

It is in fact a Wi-Fi Extender.

I'm guessing it is a different looking version of this: WiFi antenna

I would say that it is a covered sprinkler (fire extinguisher). It will react to temperature rise and start spraying water. The water jet will pop off the cover, which protects the sprinkler until it is needed.

This is likely due to vibration from the motor -- try a hard-service or "fan service" light bulb; LED replacement bulbs may also be a better choice than regular incandescent or CFL bulbs in this application.

It's a little late for the OP, but it is pretty common. Here is a different explanation: Maybe the water was hiding It could be that the machine tried to pump out the water, but did not complete because the drain is blocked somewhere. Even if there was a spinn cycle later, it would not dry anything, leaving it very wet instead. If there is a pile of very ...

Yes. The coil[s] can be replaced. I've done mine twice. Coil failure indicates inefficient venting, so it's worth looking at the the vents while doing the job.

As others have said going up is not a problem, it is the horizontal after that bites. Did you know that galvanized ducting can rust? Did you know that rusty pipe holds lint very well and is impossible to clean? Did you know that dryer lint can mold? Here is what I would do If I had to put that dryer back into service: brand new galvanized dryer duct for the ...

It really doesn't make any difference when it comes to lint build up. But you might consider putting a secondary lint trap near the dryer to help reduce the amount of lint trapped in the line.

Yes, this could replace an actual oven, because it is an actual oven. According to the specs on the website you linked to, the convection element is completely separate from the microwave element. There is a "microwave mode" and an "oven mode." The only negative I see is that the heating element is 1600 watts. That's not a lot for that size oven. Toaster ...

First, remove the door on the washer. Two screws. Usually a Phillips screw driver (+ end) or socket and ratchet. Once the door is off, you will have better leverage at lifting the stacked units. Be sure not to grab the drum portion of the washer when lifting and pulling forward. There is also the rubber seal, so be gentle of that. If you have the furniture ...

congratulations on your choice of machine - it was sold by sears, even if you did not buy it there, they have parts, unless you find them somewhere else on line. So, i visited http://www.searspartsdirect.com/GE-Washer-Parts/Model-WHDSR316G2WW/0432/0153200.html On to this page ...

Yes, by all means - larger than minimum wire is perfectly fine.

As one of the commenters pointed out, this is not 2-phase power (at least assuming something similar to standard U.S. residential 240V single-phase/split-phase service--what country are you in?). It's single-phase power. You get 240V between the poles on the smaller coil of the transformer outside your place. So you get 120V (half) from each pole to the ...

You can draw a maximum of 40A from each leg. Watts is voltage times square of current in amps, iirc; you can use that to figure out how many amps each 1-leg device needs. If the total of that plus the two-leg 240V current for the stove is less than 40A, then technically this will work. In fact most stoves these days do this internally; control circuits and ...
