Engineering like that just pi$$e$ me off. There should be a master reset.
If a owner calls Sears Repair, Sears wants $200+ for a year service agreement before they come out. You call a normal appliance repair guy and its $100 for the first hour with a minimum of 1 hour.
Thank god for YouTube and people like you that are willing to put up a video for us none mechanically inclined people. YouTube helped me fix my 15 year old Kenmore Washer. The first time was a lid switch ($10 part 15 minutes labor) and a second was the transmission coupling ($20 part and another 15 minutes). With the second break down, I was thinking maybe it was time for a new washer. After doing the coupling and seeing that everything still looks new inside and how simple it is, I started pricing out the components online and the most expensive part is the motor and that's $50. I decided to keep it around for another 15 years or until the parts are no longer available. I'm quite happy with an top loader with a mechanical brain. I don't need a FuFu Dust dispensers.
Youtube also helped me with some simple plumbing repairs too. Youtube is my first stop if something breaks. Then I decide if its something I want to dive into or not.
