“Broken! Busted! Everybody has something to repair. Before buying new, let Mighty Putty fix it for you”
Tonight our dishwasher stopped mid cycle and started making a commotion. It was flashing ‘F1 fault’. Probably very useful for a dishwasher repair person, but meaningless to me.
I was pissed off because there was water all over the floor and in the cupboards. I was then more pissed off thinking that I may need to fork out moola for repairs. Reluctant as I am to part with my money I didn’t want to pay a repair agent, so I wondered if I could repair it myself.
If my Dad lived in the same city I would of called him. He is a typical do it yourself penny wise miser. Unfortunately he doesn’t live in the same city and I didn’t wan’t to wait for his several months for his next visit.
I really didn’t want to ask my boyfriend. He’d probably start in on me that we need to sell it. At the moment he wants to replace our welcome mat at the front door with one that says ‘Everything you see here is for sale. Make me an offer!’. He’s going to try to make it himself and it will look too tacky and terrible to live at my house.
He also hates working of electronic appliances because they have integrated circuits that make them over complicated to repair yourself. In this respect he’s more of a call in services type of guy. Probably something he got this from his never get her hands dirty Mum.
Anyway to cut a long story short -You Tube!
Who would of guessed that You Tube would have a very detailed video on the exact steps to fix an F1 dishwasher fault? Took about 10 minutes and involved wiping out excess water, and then drying the exposed circuits with a hair dryer.
Girls can do anything.
Now to repair my hair straightener which has blow a thermal fuse…. Bring it on!
