Tonight, after mosaic community group, I took apart my washing machine. Right before Christmas, it stopped working. I did a little online research and discovered a very common problem with direct-drive washers – the motor coupler breaking. After a half hour’s worth of work, I had taken apart my whole washer and found my particular broken motor coupler – I used this very helpful site to tell me how to do it. Now to buy the part and put it back together.
Yay for former engineers. 🙂 It’s annoying that it’s broke, but I’m glad I’m saving $85 by doing it myself!
