I guess I just thought it was built by LG because it was made in Korea. But yes I did find the parts diagram and ordered the push button assembly. Even though it may be that the button itself/spring...

Maytag (Goldstar) front load, SHAKING

We have one of the smaller front load washers, labelled Maytag but made in Korea so I'm guessing it's goldstar. Anyway it shakes enough on its stand that the stand "walks" a bit during both spins.

Questions on tiling countertops

So I just foreclosed on a house and the former owner tiled the countertops in such a way that they look like "hammered s**t". Because he just laid the 6" right onto the 3/4" plywood it peels off...

NO NO NO. In that situation she has a disincentive for it to sell. Which means she'll keep it looking just bad enough to turn off potential buyers. Instead offer her a REBATE or some cash toward...

Wow, thanks

I didn't think of that. No there are no gable vents, but it doesn't look like there's enough (hardly any) soffit vents. That was on my list of things to do before the weather turned...

Air Hawks, how close to ridge?

Is there a "standard" for how close to the ridge the air hawks should be placed?

How about putting a plumbing jack close to an air hawk, and standard there?

Thanks
