    Default Giggle... Remember my broken dishwasher?



    Some of you may remember, that I do not use a dishwasher. Many MANY, and I mean MANY years ago, the pump broke in the dishwasher and Chip was traveling so he couldn't do anything about it, so I starting washing by hand. Found it to be easier, really. So I told him not to worry about fixing it, or replacing it, I don't want it.

    Fast forward to the summer. Septic flooded. Washing machine broke. Worked but leaked water all over the floor. So out to the back patio it went, where I did laundry because no way could I wait. Well we fixed the septic by getting that pumped, and trying to be better about water usage. The washing machine ended up being the pump, the blades were completely gone! So he replaced the pump by getting a $40 pump and now it's good as new. Then the microwave broke. That was a switch on the board that was sticking on the door. I think he fixed that for less than $5. Then my dryer broke! I hear a loud clank bonk clank clank (sounded like something broke off something). So a new belt for $10 and my dryer is good as new.

    So he decided since he has been so handy lately he would replace the pump in the dishwasher, since he found one for $10 on ebay. At least it would work *IF* I want to use it, right?

    So he replaced it and it still would not drain. So he goes online (this is where youtube and blogs have helped him fix everything!) and goes and bangs out a plug in the garbage disposal.

    Apparently, when he put in my new disposal MANY MANY years ago, he didn't take that out.....



    So now I have a working dishwasher.

    Hey get in line Laurie, lol. Lisa can send Chip here first, I need the guts in my toilet in the basement replaced, and when we bought this house, two years ago, I didn't notice until we moved in that the owner hadn't put trim or corner rounds on the walls behind his couches, or in other p,aces that were hidden, so I have gaps in the trim, p,U.S. We noticed after as well that he had used 3 different kinds of trim in the basement, so we have to replace all the trim and corner rounds in the house, plus my second sink in the kitchen is leaking. This is the part of home ownership that sucks. Lol

    Lisa how did you prefer to wash dishes over the dishwasher doing them, I really do not like doing the dishes I would be lost without my dishwasher.

    My problem is I'm so OCD the dishes are rinsed so well they may as well be clean before I put them in. So I felt like I was washing dishes twice.

    I'm a DORK!
    @Laurie he fixed everything mainly to YouTube videos!!! A few forums too but most YouTube.

    Well I'm sure you have saved a fortune having Chip do the work… I would HATE to admit how much money I have spent on repairs since Ray is never home. I had to giggle about the plug though… LOL Well that was kinda a 2 for 1 deal on that one…

    Wow, it's like christmas came early in your house. New appliances all around!! lol I would not be able to live without my modern appliances. When I was first married we tried to save money and I convinced Gary I did not need a dryer. I would hang all the clothes. Well that lasted about 1month and in came the dryer!

    My husband always fixed everything(I helped). We never had to hire anyone. He even did the car/tractor repairs. Now that he is gone, I've learned how to panic!
