i bought these new front loader style w/d set and i'm about to take an axe to them. both of them beep over and over when the cycle is done. plus the dryer had a lint sensor that loves to go off as well. i dont need to be reminded every 5 seconds when a load is done. they are drving me crazy and i cant seem to find a way to disable the beeping :mad:

Can't you set the beeper? Cut the freakin wires! I saw some whirlpools at Lowes yesterday and was thinking? Samsung as well. Samsung looks cool and is pricey but don't they make VCR's? I guess they make everything now. Whirlpool, Samsung, Whirlpool ok, Whirlpool wins!8p

BOSCH? You tools!

Not ratings just repair advice and a reprogram of the end of cycle signals. If I can get in I can discover the codes (random button pushes) that turn the feature off! Go play with your fan!

My parents had a Bosch dishwasher, spent WAYYY to much money on it, with in 5 years broke. We live in Northen Michigan and there are NO Bosch people to service it with out a huge cost so they bought a Whirlpool and 7 years later, no problem. The price of the Bosch was not worth it. Quality was not there for us. I will never buy a Bosch appliance and either will they. To each his own though, good luck with the beeps.

As an appliance repairman once told me, when it comes to this stuff, go one level above the economy level, and you are less likely to have issues with these things (said with reference to washer/dryer). We may have gone one level above that level with our dishwasher though. Whirlpool, I think. Works great so far (knock wood).

I was thinking the Bosch appliances as well. I like the look of their wall oven and built in Microwave. Fridge has a good look as well, and I've heard nothing but good things about their dishwashers.

tones, one product that broke, so never to buy again???

Smoke alert or something like that.... In another couple seconds it probably wouldn't have said much ever again....:o

FWIW- My washer and dryer each beep one time when the cycle is complete...I had to investigate yesterday, and I got to refresh my memory how to use them too.:cool: And mine are connected together via cable, but I am not sure they can be wired directly to customer service.....But I didn't look, so there may be a way.

Bosch makes some very good appliances. You can turn off the beeps on all of them. Look in your manual as it will tell you how. I have had 4 different Bosch dishwashers and 4 different houses and they can't be beat. Now I have 2 GE Monograms and they don't get the dishes as clean nor are they as quiet. Miss the Bosch.

Same applies to automobiles. more stuff you got on em' the more stuff to fail. especially with electronics. those are the worst. I do way more warranty claims on electronic control modules of some sort than I do of manual shift levers on 4x4 trucks. get up into the real high end stuff with climate control, tire pressure monitoring, etc... and its a absolute nightmare.

another reason to keep my 91 prostar. not much to go wrong with it.

dj,

Most likely yes, because there are so many other brands that people have not have had trouble with, and even trying to get replacement parts they were expensive. May just be what you get for a high end equipment, but Bosch wasnt very helpful either. Customer service should have been better.

Word up Harold. :D I aint gonna get into particulars and start a conflict here, but old simple boats like mine are VERY appealing. We are bruthas! People make jokes about my carburator often and I dont care. let them joke all they want. My ride starts up everytime. sure it has to warm up a few minutes, big ****in deal! :rolleyes: People are so dang judgemental about "old" boats. I love the fact that my boat is so simple. I can do most of the stuff myself, and what I cant do, I have 4 freinds that are ASE master mechanics that can do it. No scan tools, computers, or stuff like that required. a timing light and a good mechanic will do it just fine. LIfe is good. :)

Right On, Right On! Kinda like a old 1 hole outhouse, nothin' fancy that a little piece of paper will do, real cheap, you can move it to another hole when it's full and a roof on it to keep the sun off your head while you scream!:rolleyes: :D :cool:

PS, as a child, I dropped my red balloon I got at the carnival, in the outhouse hole. Grandma went potty, looked back to see her prize and saw red, scared her, she got a stick and stirred it and my red balloon exploded! She thought for years she was the 1st person in the world to ever see a fart!

You must not have the same model I have. I think I could practically set a brass prop in mine and have it come out as stainless steel....:D
Although I think she sets it to Anti-Bacterial mode, prewash, heated dry..etc...So it takes like 1 1/2 hour to do a load, but hey, it keeps my hands downy soft..(Or whatever the heck that commercial use to say about washing dishes) No problems to report about GE here.

Perfect, you keep "that" market, and the rest of us will move on to the new and improved....8p
By the way, I am not so sure back in the early 90's they had whole house heat lamp exhast fans, so you may want to reconsider, you might find yourself a good oil or coal burning stove to use. And open a wind for the exhaust....No electronics to fail that way...

NO problem!:) I dont have anything against newer boats, I just read alot of stories of people having issues that arent easily solved. I like the keep it simple idea. My boat is a "tractor" it just pulls me down the lake. it dont need to have heaters,towers, big stereos, lights & speakers, amps, cruise control, EFI, balast tanks, and 27 other things to go wrong. and I see SO many things go wrong with new cars that it makes me sick. stuff that just should NOT happen. no excuse for it but poor quality. :(

My guitar amps are all tube amps (or valve amps if your british.)

I have EL34 Marshall stereo power amp for my rack, and I have a Mesa/Boogie Road King with a myriad of tube options, I also have a Mesa/Boogie F30 with EL84's in it. and I have an old Laney AOR 30, with 6V6's in it. classic tube tone never goes out of style with guitar amps. They are more popular than ever. the amp companies just cant seem to duplicate the tone without the tubes despite 20 years of attempting it. :rolleyes:
