I always Wanted To Grow Up… April 10, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in life.
A long time ago, in another blog, Caolionn declared official adulthood when she and Sam got a washing machine. So, what does it mean when your washing machine goes south!?
And the failure is weird. The picture you are looking at is the bottom of the motor which is (normally) attached to a pulley, which holds a belt, which spins the washer basket. The bottom half of the pulley fell off and the belt shredded. What a weird failure mode. Essentially, it was a weld the failed. Nothing simple (like a belt breaking). And not simple to repair, unfortunately.
We'll be using the laundry mat again this weekend. Perhaps that means we are young again!? 🙂
