It's been joked about for years that dryers eat socks. But during a do-it-yourself repair session, I found out what dryers really eat and how a handful of screws and a $12.99 part can save you the cost of a new dryer, or repairman. The other night I arrived home to have my wife inform me that the dryer was on the fritz. So I employed the procedures I've learned over the years from the engineers at KXLY. I properly pressed the start button to make sure there wasn't any sort of operator error. Didn't work. I extracted the dryer from against the wall and performed procedure number 2. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in and performed procedure number 1 again. Still didn't work. This must be why I'm not an engineer at KXLY. One of those two procedures usually fixes everything in the newsroom.
