Larry, Thanks for sharing the information and slightly different than the 60 pounder I purchased in 2012. I really like the changes, especially with the lower panel to access the drain easier. The water level setup sound better too. ------------------------------ RAY BENOIST OWNER LOVELY LAUNDRY Toms ...

I feel your pain! These door lock mechanisms are poorly designed. When working on these, I have learned that I to spend time triple checking everything. One trick I started is to test it with the assembly off the machine, but all wiring connected. I put the mechanism on a step ladder with the cover open. ...

Working on this machine again today and found the problem. Upon close inspection of the air trap hose, I noticed a small rubber piece inside the small end of the tube where it connects to the "T" fitting. I used a knife to get a good clean cut with no rubber pieces flapping. The machine is now working ...

I have had this HCN060HC2 for 7 years and it has really been a great trouble free machine. I was doing maintenance a few days ago, check drain, check hoses, hose washer and screens, cleaning out the air trap hose. When testing afterwards, the machine was over filling. I rechecked and cleaned the water ...

Mountain Electronics is GREAT! I have used the for years and I also have the JTO300DRG dryers.

Phillip, I would suggest epoxy flooring. It will last many many years, low maintenance and good when wet, if you choose the appropriate finish. A quartz blend finish looks good and is not slippery when wet. I attached an example from DuraFlex, but many people do this. There are some epoxy shiny finishes ...
