I Rock!

November 12th, 2004 at 08:09 pm

I'm so proud of myself tonight. We've been having very consistent and very frustrating problems with the dishwasher. I keep using it because I know it uses far less water than my doing dishes by hand- as based on the septic bill. The water doesn't seem to be running right and the dishes are coming only partly clean. It is also leaking, but only sometimes. Sometimes it really leaks badly while others it only dribbles a little.
Anyway, the last time the dishwasher was doing this (not cleaning the dishes) I called a local guy to check it out. He pulled it apart and chastized me for putting too much non food waste into it. Like I do it on purpose. There were things like twist ties and bread clips in there when he cleaned it, but I don't know how they got in there.
I asked him if it would be possible for me to clean it out myself and he told me (very vehemently) no. I took that as a challenge of sorts, so tonight I pulled that sucker apart on my own. It took me all of 1/2 an hour and I got some weird crud out of the spray arms and tubes that the water runs through. And I saved myself $65 in the process. I really do rock!
Next I'm gonna figure out why it's leaking and fix that too. I noticed that the cover at thebottom is bent in one corner and a screw is missing. I'll try to fix that and go from there. I'm bound and determined to become handy, darnit.
