Misleading Photo

June 4, 2009

Half way through a load of laundry my washer stopped working.

I had no freaking clue what was wrong.  I took the clothes out.  Beep, beep, beep.  I manually took the water out of the washer. Beep, beep, beep.  I put the clothes back in. Beep, beep, beep. It was really stressing me out.

I finally had to find the manual to figure it out. (Thank goodness Dick insists on keeping manuals to everything we own.)  After going through the manual I discovered it was the drain filter.  Who knew there was such a thing?  I sure didn’t.

Take a look at this picture of the drain filter.  Notice how big it is in the the model’s hand.


Here is a picture of the actual filter. Well, I believe it is the filter.  It was the only thingy in the location pointed out in the manual.

    Nerds for keeping stacks of manuals. BTW are you a nerd too? Or what?

    By YOUR definition – I AM a nerd. They have their own file drawer, and they are completely organized by date, and properly labeled so one can easily find them…

    I was DESTINED to be an accountant.
    Or I have a mild case of OCD…
