how to repair a washing machine

first you take the washer apart, bit by bit, piece by piece...


this is what a washing machine looks like 'nekkid'

then you go to your local appliance 'parts and whatnot store' and get a 25 cent plastic part for $16...

broken part on left...new part on right

put new plastic part on and then try to remember how you took the washing machine apart...when you use up all the pieces and nuts and bolts and screws...you are done!

congratulations, now you put something in the washer and give it a whirl...cross your fingers and hope it works...

also, it really helps if you have a wee black kitty as your project supervisor!

I think sofie was telling your husband how to fix that washing machine. She is a little supervisor. I hope she gets paid well.

What would we do if we didn't have our cats supervise us?? ;)
Hope the washer is working now.

MS, glad you are back! my birthday is tomorrow, the 27th.
