My dryer went kaput the day that Brian went back to Georgia. It was working Saturday night, and then Sunday: zilch! zippo! nada! nyet!
Fancying myself a mechanically inclined girl, I decided to try to fix the thing myself before I call a repairman. First I unplugged it. Beyond that, the only thing I know about dryer repair is this: how to stick a screwdriver in and pop the top.
Ta-duhhhhhhhhh! Now we're talking! See anything amiss here?
Neither did I. Still, these wires seemed to need some jiggling. I did it. I jiggled.
These thingies seemed a bit dusty, so I vacuumed them all off, and did some more jiggling, with some poking and prodding thrown in for good measure.
I put the whole thing back together, plugged it in, turned the dial, closed my eyes, said a prayer, and pushed the button in.
The dryer gods weren't biting.
Does anyone know of a relatively inexpensive dryer/appliance repair-person in Champaign?
