A month or so ago, our washing machine started leaking. I replaced the pump and fixed the leak. This morning, it wouldn't drain the water. I siphoned the water out, took it outside and took the pump off. It had seized. Damn, damn, double damn.
About that time, the kids came for lunch, and we fed children and played with the youngest grandchild. Here he is, playing with his uncle Barrett.
Milady and I decided to buy a new washing machine and after lunch, hied ourselves to Lowes, where she decided on a GE washer. We got it home and hooked it up. It didn't work. Specifically, the washer would fill and drain, but wouldn't agitate nor spin. I loaded it into the pickup truck and took it back to Lowe's where I had a conversation with the return desk and they decided that the best course of action was to pacify the irate customer who kept threatening to write nasty letters to the corporate office.
We returned from Lowe's with a Whirlpool. It is running as we speak. Now I have to finish uniforms for this week and to bed. It's been a long Sunday.
