Kelly's Korner - Appliance Parts Buying 101

Hey, All,

In this day and age of instant gratification, we here at W L May do like to provide information to you as fast as humanly possible.  But we are only human and we will need some information from you to get you your parts:

1)  Brand (Whirlpool, Amana, GE, Sears, etc.)
     This helps us to be in the correct program to enter the model number
2)  Model number (we need the complete model number - sometimes part of the model number may be off to the side of the central number)
     Manufacturer's will make design changes within a model and will differentiate which part goes to which by the "engineering" number (LSR5233EQ0 may have some different parts than the LSR5233EQ2)
3)  Serial number or Manufacturer's numbers (this may be referred to as a "P" number as it will start with that letter.
     Same description as model number - changes made within the model may be reflected by the serial number.
4)  Description of part needed.
     We've heard it all!  You don't need to know the "official" name of the part.  An accurate description of what the part does will help us narrow it down.  We more than likely will ask you a few more questions just so we get you the correct part needed.

The staff at W L May is here to help you with your appliance parts needs - just give us a call or stop on in!

Have a great week!
