How to Dry Wet Sneakers in a Dryer without the Noise

If you need to quickly dry a pair of soaked shoes or sneakers, either because they are wet from puddles or running in the rain, or because they have recently been cleaned, use a dryer rack.

The clothes dryer rack accessory attaches to the clothes dryer itself and keeps items set on it stationary while warm dryer air circulates around the wet item. Using the dryer rack prevents loud banging and thumping noise from having the shoes loose inside the dryer drum and it protects the dryer from damage as well.

Holes in the rack also allow better air circulation to dry wet sneakers fast. Plus by using the dryer, you can control the heat and timer settings to make sure you dry your shoes gently.

Tips for drying shoes in the dryer:

  • Use the low, delicate or no heat clothes dryer settings
  • Tie the laces together to keep them from drooping and catching on the dryer drum

To purchase a dryer rack, use your clothes dryer’s model number to find the correct part for your dryer.

We sell dryer racks that fit most major brands including LG, Samsung, Kenmore, GE, Frigidaire, Maytag, and Whirlpool clothes dryers.

Save Time and Money with a Dryer Repair Kit

Save Time and Money with a Dryer Repair Kit

If your dryer is making noise, will not start or tumble or is not getting the laundry dry, you could replace a single part — maybe a belt or the roller wheels — only to find that it did not solve the problem. Why not replace several parts at once, saving time and money? That’s the benefit of a Dryer Repair or Dryer Maintenance Kit.

The Advantage of Using a Dryer Repair Kit

Dryer repair maintenance kits typically come with several parts that tend to wear out and need replacement at the same time like dryer belts, roller wheels, pulley wheels and arms.

The advantage of buying a kit is that all these parts for your appliance’s model are included. It saves time in terms of individually buying all these parts and often there is a cost savings involved too.


Drum Repair Kit Part number: 4392065 Whirlpool brand machine dryers – both gas and electric. This dryer repair kit includes a belt Also included are two drum rollers, 4 tri-rings, a clip, an instruction sheet, and an idler pulley. Use this repair kit when dryer becomes noisy, will not start, will not tumble, not enough or no heat, and leaves marks on clothing.


Dryer maintenance/Repair Kit, part number 4392067 includes multi rib drum belt, 4 rollers, 9 tri-rings, instruction sheet and idler pulley, For 27″ wide dryers. Used on these Brands: Admiral, Amana, Caloric, Crosley, Estate, Hardwick, Jenn Air, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Magic Chef, Maytag, Norge, Roper, Sears, Whirlpool

The kits above may solve issues involving the dryer not tumbling, the dryer being noisy or not drying clothing.

Drum Bearing Repair Kits

The dryer bearing can be a front or rear bearing and it supports the drum as the turns. Over time and from use, the bearing can wear out and fail leading to noise.  If the part is not replaced eventually the drum will fail to turn at all.


Dryer Bearing Repair Kit Part Number: WE49X20697

If you have a front bearing, kit WE49X20697 comes with replacement drum glides, felt seal and belt, in addition to the bearing part. Again, the advantage of buying a kit is replacing the other parts that can also be worn, like the drum glides and felt seal, when making your bearing repair.

Cleaning Stovetop Grates

Gas Stove Burner Grate by Whirlpool WP305810B

Keep your stovetop grates clean so they can heat properly. If your grates are especially dirty with stubborn, cooked-on stains, pour a 1/4 cup of ammonia into a large gallon size freezer bag along with the grates and seal the bag. Don’t worry about the ammonia covering the gate, you only want to expose the grates to fumes. Leave the bag in the sink overnight and in the morning, any residue should wipe off easily with a sponge.

Stop throwing out your vegetables!

I have a pet peeve of letting food go to waste.  Unfortunately it happens a lot, especially with fruits and vegetables that I buy.  My boyfriend does not like fruits or vegetables, so it is always just me that eats them.  When I go shopping, I keep this in mind and only buy what I know I will be able to eat within a week or two.  But it seemed that I could never eat the food fast enough and I would always end up with wilted lettuce, and rotting fruits and vegetables.  I tried to store them in different kind of containers, and freezer bags.  This seemed to help, but only saved them for a day or two more.

I could not take it anymore, I thought to myself- “I work for an appliance parts company, there has to be something out there that helps food last longer.”  I went to work the next day and asked around. As it turns out I was right, there is something out there that helps preserve produce!  Whirlpool makes another great product called Fresh Flow Produce Preserver.  They have a great starter kit, and then also sell refills for it.  We sell this product at work for only $12.99! I thought that was a great deal, because if it does work I will be saving more than $12.99 and I will no longer be wasting food or money. To me that is the greatest deal of all.


I looked up how and why this preserver works before I made my purchase.  While I was researching, I learned that fruits and vegetables give off a natural ethylene gas as they begin to ripen.  But as they naturally give off this gas, it makes the produce ripen more quickly, especially when in a small space (like the crisper drawer in the fridge).  It turns out that some fruits and vegetables produce more of this gas, and some other fruits and vegetables are very sensitive to this gas and it will cause them to ripen much faster when exposed to high levels. That is why it is also important to separate these fruits into the two separate crisper drawers.  The produce preserver promises to absorb the ethylene gas and lets your produce last up to four days longer.


After doing my research on the product, I was almost convinced that this would work, and I was ready to give it a try.  I purchased the starter kit that day at work.  When I arrived home I took a look at my crisper drawer; I just went grocery shopping so all of the produce was still fresh. This was perfect because now I could truly see how well this preserver worked!  It was very easy to install and put together.  The starter kit comes with two preserver packets, one preserver holder, and one status indicator.  All you need to do is open the holder and place the packet inside, next take the indicator and slide it into the allotted slot on top of the holder.  The preserver holder just sticks right onto the side of the drawer, and begins to work.  The strip is right on top and turns red as it absorbs the gas to let you know when to change the packets.  The only complaint that I had about it was how much space it took up in the drawer- but it isn’t even that much- so I got over it really fast. Ha-Ha-Ha.

I was truly happy and amazed how well this preserver worked!! My produce did last so much longer and my fruits and vegetables tasted great even five days later.  I got to finish all the produce I bought without having to throw any of it out! This made me ecstatic, because I wasn’t left feeling guilty, throwing any of it out and wasting money!!!  So for $12.99 for the starter kit and then just $9.99 for 2 refills I am going to keep using it and save money and food.  Overall I would and have suggested it to my family and friends. I suggest my readers should pick one up! Especially if you are tired of wasting food, and money!

Affresh Cleaners!

Now last week I told you all about my secret weapon to cleaning my dishwasher and garbage disposal, Affresh dishwasher cleaner.  But this week I want to tell you about the other cleaners I use in my kitchen from Affresh.  Using their products has cut my cleaning time in half, and I could not be happier about that!  In my kitchen my boyfriend and I have a stainless steel refrigerator, and it seems that no matter how many times I wipe it down, clean, or polish it, it just never lasts.  Same goes for our smaller appliances around the kitchen.

After trying Affresh dishwasher cleaner, I found out that Whirlpool made even more Affresh cleaners, so I had to try them! When I saw that there is a stainless steel cleaner I bought two right away; one for my house and one for my boyfriends’ parents.  They have a dog that likes to lick the refrigerator when he wants ice, so this cleaner is perfect.  I also picked up the afresh kitchen and appliance cleaner, to clean the small appliances we use daily.

When I got home from work, I was very eager to clean my fridge- which is unusual for me!  So I got the spray out and I started spraying down the fridge with paper towels in hand.  I let it sit for a minute and then wiped it down, and to my amazement my fridge was sparkling! It looked like I had spent hours cleaning it and then polishing it, but it only took me five minutes.  I was so happy!  The next day at work I went back and bought a container of Affresh Stainless Steel Wipes.  I use these whenever I need a really fast clean of the fridge; just wipe it down and you’re all done!  This cleaner even got the dog drool off of my boyfriends’ mom’s fridge!

When the refrigerator was all clean and I was finished staring at it in awe, I moved on to clean the counters and the appliances that sit on our counters.  I sprayed the kitchen and appliance cleaner all over the tops of the counter and my kitchen immediately had a great aroma of citrus from the spray! It was great! The spray worked great, I didn’t need to scrub to make it shine.  The spray got the wine stain out of the counter from where the bottle was sitting. It was effortless.  I cleaned the outside of our toaster oven, blender, and the inside and outside of our microwave with such ease it no longer felt like a chore.

Affresh is great for my kitchen cleaning. It cuts my cleaning time in half and it makes everything look amazing.  It’s also such a great price I don’t have to worry about using too much.   No more scrubbing for hours for me, just spray and wipe!  Happy cleaning everyone!
