  • How do I run 360 volts on one outlet for washer dryer.?

    My sister purchased a Kenmore stackable washer and dryer and the dryer runs 240 volts, and I'm not sure what the washer runs but she says its 120 volts.

  • How am I suppose to wash my rain gear if it says not to?

    I just bought some rain gear for a job I'm starting in a few days. They require us to wash our rain gear every day. Well, there is a tag on my rain gear that says "do not wash, hand wash, do not drive clean or use bleach. How the heck am I suppose to wash it?

The reason they want us to wash it every day is because it is a sea food processing plant, and they don't want bacteria getting all over the place I guess.

  • I think I was conned by a homeowner :(?

    Hello everyone. A few years back (2016) I purchased a house in a gated community in Pennsylvania. At purchase, no one told me anything was wrong. We had an inspector come check the property, there were no warnings of anything forth coming. Recently, the water heater in my house broke. The entire first floor was flooded. Right after, once we finally got all the water out, we had an inspector come back and he told us that the first floor is basically crawling with mold, and it will cost us 1000 s of dollars to fix. If we don t fix the problem in the next year or 2, the first floor will basically cave on itself. Now, even if we got the water heater replaced, this would not have changed the mold situation. My question is, should we be the ones held accountable for the mold situation in the first floor? I do not intend to resell this house with this horrible mold situation to other tenants, this is a serious hazard. But we don t have the money to get it replaced. My question is, since this problem wasnt disclosed to us and we basically signed my name to the house under false pretenses, is there anything I can do to get this taken care of by either the previous owner or the owner of the gated community? We would sew if we have to. Thank you for reading.

    I just bought a bunch of cucumber seeds, just out of fun ! I started germinating the seeds using the wet tissue paper and plastic bags method, they grew just fine ( I don't have a germination system, I just kept them in a dark area and they did just fine) .. When the roots started growing bigger and stronger I transplanted them into containers, I kept the soil semi wet, made sure its not over wet. Watched some youtube videos to learn more on how to plant them properly. Few days later, I noticed that only 2 out of maybe 10 germinated seeds started growing leaves ! What did I do wrong there? I know I don't have a green house and some lights to keep everything warm and nice, can I still grow my other cucumber seeds without using all of that fancy stuff? Here is a picture of my germinated seeds! do I need to let them grow bigger before I transplant them?

  • Should I replace my 24 year old Kenmore washer/dryer set?

    Best answer: I advocate keeping old appliances for as long as possible. It's less wasteful, and frankly, new appliances don't last as long. The average life expectancy of new washers is 11-14 yrs, and less for front loaders. If you're at all handy, try watching some youtube videos on how to repair your dryer. If... show more
    Best answer: I advocate keeping old appliances for as long as possible. It's less wasteful, and frankly, new appliances don't last as long. The average life expectancy of new washers is 11-14 yrs, and less for front loaders. If you're at all handy, try watching some youtube videos on how to repair your dryer. If you have to pay for a service call, it's a gamble unless you KNOW what's wrong. An expensive part plus labor can easily cost as much as a new dryer. OTOH, a simple fix may last for many more years.

    At any rate, unless your washer and dryer are part of your decor, there's no need to have them match. Replace them one at a time, and buy quality. I recommend Speed Queen. They still build them like they used to and you can expect a much longer life from them. (Speed Queen is the company that supplies most laundromats)

  • What does a room without a roof feel like?

    Best answer: It's bad. Leave the lid off the milk and it goes sour. Leave the ragtop off a convertible and you'll get soaked. Leave the **** off a girl and you have something not attractive either. Point is, things need tops. Pherrel didn't think that one through at all.

  • Are white kitchen appliances out of date? What about resale value?

    I am redoing my kitchen. I have selected white modern kitchen cabinets with a marble top. There is a white tile floor, and my walls are neutral silver.

    I am redoing my kitchen. I have selected white modern kitchen cabinets with a marble top. There is a white tile floor, and my walls are neutral silver. The room is rather dark -- and I like the bright white space. I want to pick white appliances (kitchen, range, dishwasher) to go along with the cabinets. But it seems everywhere I look stainless steel in in vogue. I really do not like stainless much (it looks cold to me) but there is no price difference these days between the two finishes -- and white is harder to get. I think I will end up selling my condo in about two years. Would I be better off going with stainless even though white appliances match the room better now?
