    I find it really disturbing to see manufacturer's competing with their customers.  That is a business taboo for good reason, it's a great way to lose customers. That being said, you've got to read Laurance Cohen's article called "Everything's on the ...

    Many posters have said that you either love or hate this business within the first 6 months. My mat is quite profitable, is remodeled and clean, but full disclosure, it is also for sale! Been here, tried it, this business is not for me ------------------------------ ...

    The most clear cut answer I could give is that I did not buy my own business to give back to the community. I bought it to give myself a financial future. When propane went up, the minutes given on the dryers went down, and the price of the washers went ...

    Frank, First think I check when a no fill error is drain valve.  Usually something stuck in it and holding it open. ------------------------------ Mark Shields Tucson AZ ------------------------------

    ​You should be able to see the security bar that sticks out from the center of the nut that holds it in place.  Looks like a straight piece of coat hanger. ------------------------------ Brett Nolan COO Southern Automatic Machinery Co Fayetteville GA ...

    John M & others, A bunch of us business owners here in ND got blindsided with audits by that "use tax" shenanigan".you described.  In a better world they would have been challenged & corrected by the court system working properly since business owners ...

    Larry, Larry....  Never have nor will raise prices.  We've discussed this at nauseum.  Yet, my mat is not dying.  Nothing can be further from that falsehood sir.  Hence I beg to differ on your incorrect mat dying comment.  I guess as with anything else, ...

    Frank, ​ Raising prices is not about a quarter. If that's all it meant nobody would ever raise their prices. Price increases are what keep Laundromats strong and profitable. Show me a laundromat that never raises prices and I'll show you a dying laundromat. ...

    Sometimes I get heated up by this sort of customers as well. I think we need to understand where are the coming from. Laundromat users are majority middle to lower income group, a quarter for them is a quarter, to us is nothing. So why bother so much ...

    Joel, Thanks....But the bond is the least of the problem. It's the C/O and the Letter of No Objection. If you can help with that, there are a lot of Mat owners here in NYC who could use help. ------------------------------ Paulie B Store Owner/ Employee ...

    That's true. I mark my machines at the rear with a Sharpie so I know which one to work on. It's especially bad on dryers because they all look the same, so don't feel bad ------------------------------ Felix S Store Owner/ Employee ------------------------------

    Just and FYI.  I dis some research on LVT flooring and/or floating floors.  So far everything I have found indicates that it is not suited for a wet environment.   ------------------------------ John Store Owner/ Employee ------------------------------

    Not only will the rubber elbi diaphragm cause a slow fill but the coil and little shaft are also sometimes the cause. I just changed the elbis on a W630 cold side for a slow fill as you described and voila, it is now a gusher. If there is a stuttering ...

    I have 2 W640 Wascomat washers that fill very slowly through the cold valve. This slow fill results in hot water washes no matter what temperature is selected since the flush valves going to the soap/softening dispensers are all hot and have lots of water ...
