News on the washer that will not spin!

The washer, Whirlpool #wtw4800xq that will not spin during its regular cycle, is now in recycle mode.

I am thinking that the control board, at a cost of near 200 $, is too risky to place into the machine. Especially after hearing all of the bad reviews on this machine from Amazon, and then having to take a chance on the control board working as it should.

The repair man, said this machine would not reset, contrary to my beliefs and Whirlpools phone person. On the U tube, and over the phone, Whirlpool tells me you just have to unplug it to reset the machine, for at least a minute or so. I done that, but the machine continues not to spin when the cycle calls for it.

Right now it is washing. Washing a pair of my hound dogs slippers. But, if they do not spin, how will I be able to dry them outside in minus 20 C weather.. Good golly miss Molly.

I give up. I may look to buy an Inglis. Mom said her Inglis lasted her, how long now... 9 years with no problems.. Wait a minute... Whirlpool bought out Inglis a few years ago? What about Maytag? Yeah, they are probably bought out too! Oh, Kenmore? Who knows who makes those, as Sears contracts that out every so many years.

Earlier I talked about a machine that should last 5 years... Do not misunderstand me, I feel they should last a good 10 years. 5 Years without any major, huge problems, with most of the population having good machines in their homes, that may last 10 or 20 years.

Keep away from the electronic gadgets. That is what most appliance repairmen will say... Ok, that is enough frustration for today...

Till next time... Still using the drain and spin cycle to complete my wash cycle..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
