Ok, I'm at wit's end and I'll entertain any ideas people have.

I've got a Hitachi bread maker which has performed admirably since the 
beginning of summer.  However, a month ago it decided to become amazingly 

So now when I make bread(nice simple white bread) the loaves simply DO 
NOT RISE.  I get this little lump of baked bread that is 6 inches high at 
the bottom.

I've tried to control for the yeast(I use Fleischmann's Bread Maker's 
yeast which has given me good results in the past), flour(both 
self-rising and non), sugar(powerdered, granulated and brown), 
butter(salted and unsalted), and milk(skim, lofat, standard, warm, cold) 
and still I have the same problem.

I've gone through 10 pounds of flour without results and I'd really like 
to get this working.  It just stopped making good loaves of bread and I'd 
really like to know why and what to do about it.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
