Today I scoured You Tube and found some very helpful videos.
McKinley and I learned how to disassemble (no disassemble, that never gets old 😉) our whirlpool washing machine.
After reading thru some forums I determined that our problem was most likely the pump. My suspicion was that a tiny earring was stuck.
I've determined that a man would have had this fixed in a quarter of the time because they wouldn't care about all the dirt and filth that was found. So, it took me longer and now I have piece of mind that the inside of the washer is clean. Full disclosure, I couldn't get the spanner nut off and so it's not as clean as I would like.
Nasty dirt and dog hair.
I can't even, let's just pretend it's not even there.
I want a spanner wrench for my birthday.
Below the metal round spanner nut sits on top of the metal tub (not the long round thing sticking out).
I forgot to take a picture of the pump.
But I found a small metal staple. I kept looking for something bigger, not convinced that it was the cause for all this noise.
I decided that I would put it all back together and test her out.
She works perfectly, doing the first load now and I sure hope that it goes smoothing.
This really happened, this is not some weird April fools joke, because that's just not funny.
