I decided to wash some down pillows today.
In the course of washing the pillows the washer went off balance, big time. The switch that gets pushed by the pin in the lid broke.
I called the repairman to come by. He was able to come tonight.
While he was here, I asked if he could look at the dryer, because I thought I had smelled that “burnt belt” kind of smell.
He tried to start the dryer, but it wouldn’t turn on. It had worked earlier in the day.
He looked around the back and this is what he found:
here’s another shot:
Praise the Lord that I decided to wash pillows today and the washer broke. If it hadn’t, I might not have called the repairman. If I hadn’t called the repairman, he wouldn’t have found that.
The circuit breaker did not trip. He removed the circuit breaker and capped the wires. He’ll be back on Saturday with a new switch for the washer, a new breaker, new wiring, a new plug and a new outlet.
Praise the Lord our house did not burn down as a result of this.
Praise the Lord!
