  1. The Topic About Anything [2014 - present]

    well, this has been a cluster. the place we bought it sent out a repair technician right away. they couldn't find anything wrong, and the control board stores error codes and there were none. so replace control board in case it was bad. ran dryer, stopped. took apart dryer, thought maybe bad motor. order motor, get it overnighted on a friday, it got in last monday, last tuesday they replaced the motor. thought it was working, ran 15 minutes, stopped. the repairman is banging his head against the wall. (i was already there.) the motor is overheating and shutting down. but two in a row? so they have to take it into the shop and start REALLY taking it down and testing. they took my gas dryer and brought me a basic dryer that is electric (220) and i do laundry while mine in shop. they spent three days running load after load after load. worked great. so everyone but me convinced that the 110 line that goes to the dryer has something wrong and is what is overheat the motor. so they bring dryer back and take the loaner. i plug dryer with a heavy duty short extension cord into a different circuit in laundry room. 15 minutes, motor over heats and stops. later in day after cools down, try outlet in kitchen, a third circuit. same thing. shoot me. so something is wrong somewhere. i swear it is not our electrical box or lines. electrician today (cha ching!) confirms it.... there is a problem with either the line feeding to the house or the transformer we are on and it is fluctuating our electricity anywhere from 80 volts to 140 on a 120 line. the line that is 220 for some reason is not being effected, or not fluctuating as great as the 110's. so now we have called the electric company to come out and see what the problem is. who knows what that wait will be. in the mean time i cannot do laundry and who knows what it is doing to my other appliances. the dryer is designed to it just shuts down. if it is effecting other appliances, like refrigerators and freezers, they are just gonna get wear on motors until they die. lovely. freakin lovely.

  10. The Democratic Presidential Field

    whoa. i didn't see this coming. http://usuncut.com/politics/bernie-speech-hot-mic-nomination/ Even if the roll call vote isn’t successful, it’s clear that Hillary Clinton will have a difficult time uniting the Democratic Party around her candidacy. A new election forecast from Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight.com projects Trump to win a plurality of electoral college votes in November, including victories in critical swing states like Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Clinton’s sole swing state victories are Colorado and Virginia, according to FiveThirtyEight’s map.
