Washing machine maintenance

Every so often, we get questions about the remodeling progress of our home in the airplane hangar. These days, anything we accomplish pretty much revolves around what’s needed for our family to function with a baby. You know how that is! So we still have a long list of remodeling details to eventually wrap up (doorknob in the bedroom, shelves in some of the kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanity…).

This task pretty much took center stage over the weekend:

washing machine repair

I call the project ripping up the bathroom.

Martin calls it repairing the washing machine.

For me, the best way to keep on top of laundry with a baby in the house is running a load of laundry every day. Some people might prefer to make it a weekend task. But even when I worked a 9-5 away from home, I found that doing progressive laundry keeps things from getting overwhelming. It’s also a great way to avoid the need for purchasing extra clothes!

Martin was just doing some preventative repairs over the weekend. That man hears problems brewing in machines like nothing I’ve ever known. And luckily since we live in such a rural place where a repair man isn’t available for our German appliance, he’s more than happy to take apart our machine and repair it himself.

So that’s what he did while Niklas and I went to visit Grandma… and if needed – her washing machine.
