I love being married to a big strong fella who can build and repair just about anything. He's wonderful! Sometimes, though, I have more than one project to do at the same time. This weekend, for example. Handsome Husband is hard at work replacing the bathroom floor.
Suddenly, I feel the dishwasher filters *MUST* be cleaned today. No, not tomorrow. Today. We've had this dishwasher for about 15 years or so. (Does that make it "vintage"?) It's been working fine up until a few days ago. The dishes have been kind of gritty. A little maintenance is probably all it needs.
How hard can this be, right? What could go wrong, right? ;-)
I typed my dishwasher's brand and model number into my laptop browser and *POOF* there was a video on how to disassemble it!
Thanks to this
I grabbed some tools and tackled the project! 'Pretty exciting, huh? I thought so!
Once I got to the part that needs cleaning, let me just say
Make sure you thank whoever has been cleaning these at your home! I scraped and scooped and rinsed until all the filter places were clean.
After putting it all back together, I was a little nervous if it would actually work. LOL! We had a few dishes from breakfast, so I added the dish soap and hit the start button. It works! No leaks or crazy noise! The dishes came out sparkling!
While I am very grateful for all my husband does around here, I am pretty dang handy myself and so very proud of my new skill.
