Handy, dandy Maytag Man!

My guy is wonderful!Maytag Man

Shortly after putting in a load of laundry yesterday, I heard a beep, beep, beep coming from the laundry room, not a normal sound, since it wasn’t time for the wash to be finished.  I investigate and see a flashing time indicated on the panel, followed by an F…certainly not funny…more like failure!

I pulled out the instruction book (aren’t I wonderful?!  I knew where it was), and found the trouble shooting section; followed the directions for getting rid of the error code, but still had it. 

The directions said to call the service person.

MM to the rescue!  He pulled the bottom panel off the front, and tinkered with this and that, then checked the internet and discovered it was a common error code problem (a certain circuit—that would cost $140 to replace).  Rut roh…not good.  I head to Amy’s house with my basket of wet laundry and leave MM to contemplate the problem.

He’s serious when he is contemplating.

My fix-it guy didn’t give up.  He was a man determined.  The washer would not defeat him.  He wiggled this; jiggled that…and then the washer magically went through two wash cycles, much to his delight.

All is well in Mayberry again.  We have clean clothes.

The end.

Wasn’t that a touching story?  Thanks, honey!

I knew MM would fix whatever was wrong with the washer. He's just that kind of guy. Handy to have around indeed.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from chilly California. :)

Worth his weight in gold, I'd say! Surely you don't call him the MM for nothing! :)

Wish he did road calls?! We could use his expertise at my Grandma's house with a furnace that is testy.

Do you remember sometime last year... I had that very f-code... and I jiggled and tinkered and bopped its top off. And it worked again! YAY me! Until about 2 weeks later when I went and bought a new washer.

Although I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear that MM is a srsly better jiggler than I.

Have a lovely clean clothes kinda day! big hugs xoxo
