Came up from the basement last night to find the washing machine screaming and belching smoke. A screw had gotten into one of the drain holes in the inner tub and jambed against the outer tub and smoked the drive belt.
When the open door safety switch quit last year I just hot wired it, which allows me to turn the thing on and open it. I'm a real genius that way, so i did.
That allowed me to grab the inner tub and give it a shove. It came loose and started running just fine but then the screw tore a hole in the outer tub.
Do you think 3M 5200 will stick to that funky plastic that they make washing machine tubs with?
What has this got to do with C+V? Well, I bet if I carbon date the pile of accorns that I found in there, or the dead bird for that matter, this machine would prove to be vintage. Only time will tell if it's a classic.
You know there's a forum for people who restore classic appliances. I met one of those people once.
Thanks for listening.
