Say goodbye to appliance installers and repairmen! When today's consumers buy new stoves, refrigerators and other major appliances, the usual choice isn't an installation contractor, but a home improvement or electronics warehouse store, which simply delivers the unit to the front door. Arranging for installation is now the homeowner's responsibility. Installing the appliance themselves is the choice of increasing numbers of homeowners purchasing appliances in this way. For some appliances, DIY installation can cut the cost of an appliance by more than 50%. And equal cost-savings is achieved by the homeowner who is able to perform basic maintenance and repair tasks themselves. DIY Guide to Appliances is a comprehensive guide to installing and performing basic maintenance on all major household appliances, including washers and dryers, refrigerators, garbage disposers, dishwashers, water heaters, ovens, ranges and more. Perfect companion book for homeowners buying appliances from warehouse stores Includes complete installation instructions Repair and maintenance instructions can save homeowners thousands of dollars
