Today I was the Maytag Repairman

today was maytag repairman

After our recent unpleasant experience with our Sears protection plan I was glad today that I took our Maytag dishwasher off of it because it was so old and we weren’t using it.

So naturally we started using it again and the handle broke. Being disgusted with repair persons in general at the moment, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I took the dishwasher apart and removed the handle and latch. Then I searched for the part online, found it, and ordered it. Finally, I checked a video to make sure that I was doing it right. Now I am just waiting for the part to install it and be able to use my dishwasher again.

Sometimes Urban homesteading is just as challenging as country homesteading. And just as rewarding. Today I feel like the Maytag repairman.

I also replaced the fuel filter in my truck and checked on some fuses I ordered to make sure they were the right size for the truck. I then checked on a suspected oil leak, although it doesn’t seem to be a leak, just some spillage that is still dripping off the engine.

Maybe tomorrow I will get to be the Great American novelist. It would be a nice change from being the Maytag repairman today.
