New Frigidaire Dishwasher
Frigidaire®, a leader in home appliance innovation, announces a quantum leap in dishwashing technology with the introduction of its SpeedClean™ dishwashers. By incorporating the revolutionary AquaSurge™ technology, you can now adjust the washing pressure for various dishwashing needs. Frigidaire® dishwashers can truly deliver on the promise of faster, quieter, cleaner dishwashing.
Frigidaire speed clean dishwasher
The sleek, semi-integrated design of our new SpeedClean™ dishwashers provide a clean exterior appearance, symphonizing primary control functions onto the top of the door, displaying only the innovative “Favorite Cycle” and “Start” functions on the front, along with the “Cycle Status Indicator.” Most controls, including “Child Lock,” are now out-of-sight and out-of-reach.

Looks like a good dishwasher. We will see how customers like it.

Monday Sept. 27th

Hi all,
The morning low clouds did burn off this afternoon, very nice fall day here in Springfield, Oregon.
1998 Frigidaire Upright Freezer: Not Cooling, Found Compressor burn out, compressor oil restricted in evaporator, heat exchanger, filter drier.
Spent 4 hours this morning changing all those parts plus installing the new drain pan kit that solders to the condenser tubing(high side) of the compressor that heats the defrost drain water to evaporation. No charge to customer, under the extended warranty contract they purchase yearly. If they didnt have the contract it would have cost close to $1000 to repair, very labor intensive job!

1992 Whirlpool Dryer: Not heating properly, Found cycling thermostat out, replaced cycling thermostat, worked great.
