Repair Night!

So remember our earlier post about the dryer issue and the Sears repairman? Here is a little update. The part new costs $150. Jen scored a deal on eBay - a person closed their repair shop and was liquidating all the inventory - at COST. So that $150 part we got for $100 (got to love eBay - thank you user finditthere2008). It arrived today and we spent a total of 10 minutes taking out the old part and putting in the new one - how is that for $160 in labor!

It's gonna get FIXED!

This is all that needed replacing - it is actually the ONLY thing not inside the drum area of the dryer

See the burnt resistors in the lower left?

It even scorched the backside

Zach's seal of approval

And the final test...did the sensor dry work? YES! How long did it take to dry? 50 MINUTES!!!! Wahoooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! So not only did we save $330 - we feel pretty dang good about ourselves!
