Naw, been better. But things will work out. They said there is not much they can do even if it's broke.

I am happy I fixed that washer without a service call, tho. We weren't sure if that was the problem, but its a known problem with that model ... So we ordered the parts and I watched a YouTube video on how to do it and it worked. I just washed a load of towels and it worked perfect. Go me. The Mrs. will be happy.

Good thing the washer fix went good. If that were my other half it would not be a good deal! We call the repair guys every time. He can do stuff just not machine repair. If I can't do it then we call.

Oh she didn't think I could do it. She wanted to call someone too, but i said I'm pretty sure i can do it myself and washers really aren't that complicated (basically a motor, drum, dampers, conduits for water, and electronics/wiring).

I actually had to do it differently than the you tubevideo. The youtube video showed that you could pull the dampers out from the top of the washer, but there must be some variations in the models, cause unless I could figure out how to defy the laws of physics I had to remove mine from the bottom.

The dampers are about 3 feet long and spring biased. To get them out I was laying under the washer, lifting the whole thing with one arm at about a 40 degree angle and trying to get them out with my other hand (she was resting and I wanted to surprise her when she got up ... otherwise she would have helped me ... Took longer than I thought, tho)...

After i changed one of the 4 dampers, I thought to myself ... this cant be safe working like this ... if i drop this thing it's going to land on my head or neck and kill me or seriously hurt me. Even with help, it was awkward working on it like that anyway

So I laid the entire washer on its side ... When I did that the water in the pipes leaked out on the floor and my son ran to get me a bunch of towels ...

Then she came in there and saw it in its side and water on the floor ... she was not happy and was telling me if I broke her washer she doesn't care she's going to the store and buying a new one on Monday and she doesn't care if it costs $1000. Then she was going on and on about why I didn't just remove them from the top like in the video ... But then I explained and showed her why it wasn't even possible for me to remove them in that manner and she understood and calmed down.

I fixed it tho. Took maybe an hour and I think the parts were less than $50. Ha!! She's happy now.

Ok! I had to laugh while reading that! Next time drain the hoses! I understand her being upset about your safety and not having a working washer! Really because after the washer was fixed my dryer went out this last winter...we bought a new one! Thank God no waiting!

$50. you're lucky we paid out about $250. in service calls & labor cost! The parts were covered or we called and they gave them free being a 2 year old washer they wanted us to be happy I guess. The dryer was old! Older than our home! My husband opened up the little panel in the back and said it's the belt could be easy could be hard to fix. It's old anyway let's get a new one!

What a nice thing to do for her. Any man can call a repairman. The art of fixing things yourself is a dying one. You should be proud.
