I will say, the price of a premium membership has saved me hundreds of dollars so far, if not more. There is just so much good information and advice here.
Checked the drain. Bra wire and a bunch of junk. Easy fix. I am so green. Saved the cost by having a premium membership right there, not to mention lost revenue over the weekend. Thanks, guys.

Always complete your due diligence. If the seller cannot provide you with the necessary information, you probably need to walk away immediately.
Knowledge is power, and there is a lot of knowledge to be had by being a premium member.

will have the machine back up and running soon.
Much much thanks to Jonathan at Coinwash as well as the entire Laundrylux/Wascomat support team/engineers for helping me resolve my door lock issue.
Jonathan has been paramount in helping me out with this dilemma and to that I toast him with a glass of fine whiskey.

With a direct connection to this many potential customers…. Why would you NOT be a sponsor?

He called and left a message saying the check would be sent Fedex on Monday.
Thanks Jonathan for your interest and support, should have called you first saved myself a ton of grief. I must say your call today was the biggest surprise of all. Been a member since 2005 and to be honest never got it until today. I was shocked that Coinwash was on it like it was their money, their problem, called and followed up to make sure those that said they would had done what they had promised. All I can say is Thank-you so very much. MOST IMPRESSIVE……….

On one machine all I had to do was adjust the water level screw about 1/2 a turn. The other machine I was having problems with had a bra strap stuck in the dump valve causing it to leak. I had replaced the dump valve on the other one and it didn’t seem to make much difference so I never swapped out the one that really needed it.
Live and learn. I’ve already got my money’s worth out of my premium membership. Thanks again for all the advice.
