Mr. Fix It has earned his keep! 🙂
We have a big jetted tub which I think is a total waste of space and everything else but it came with the house. If ever we build a house, which we probably will not, I’ll stuck one bath tub somewhere but the rest will be showers that are walk in and big enough to have no shower doors. Anyway, we never use the tub but once a month we fill it water and run the jets. Last nigh Vince decided to do that .. thankfully right before I took my shower and a cold shower on a 15° night is always fun but . . the jets didn’t work. Didn’t do anything . . dead! I said “Let’s just sell the house and move to the country!” Vince thought it a better idea to have the tub repaired.
This morning while I was fixing breakfast and Vince was getting in my way at the sink, at the stove, at the fridge . . while fixing his coffee, he asked if the dishes in the dishwasher were clean. Yes! NO!! They’re supposed to be clean but they’re not. It’s stuck on “lock”. Tried everything but nothing unlocked it. A dishwasher full of dirty, stinky (I do not rinse!) dishes and a dead dishwasher to go with the dead tub.
For the last week or so, when I start it, I’ll come back upstairs in a couple of hours to unpack it and the dishes aren’t washed. They may be wet but even the soap dispenser hasn’t opened. I’ll re-start it and eventually, it washes the dishes.
Remember . . I’ve been wanting to get rid of this dishwasher for several years but I got the instruction booklet out and read about all the buttons to push to unlock it . . nothing unlocked it. Vince read about it on the internet and decided to turn the power off to the dishwasher and yes . . that unlocked it. I’ve had to re-start it twice though so it’s time for a new one.
While he was out dealing with the breakers, he happened to look at the tub breaker and it was off . . I guess during the water heater change out something happened to it so he flipped it and now the tub is working too!
At least the dishes in the dishwasher will be clean. I was dreading unpacking those and hand washing them after they’ve sat all night. Vince says Kenmore dishwashers have a decent rating . . so we’re headed down to our little Sears store to see what they have.
