I should know this by now!
I moved the washing machine. The first rule of plumbing is don't move anything that's hooked up to water, but I threw caution to the wind and pushed it about 4 inches. And then it was broken! But not really. I put the laundry in, and then it started making crazy noise and it wouldn't drain. And then it drained and I thought it was a fluke, so I put in another load. It didn't drain either. Then I realized somehow I had messed it up by moving it. I lifted it up and made sure it was on all it's little blocks, and then I made sure the water line wasn't kinked. Then I realized that one of the blocks had been squishing the water line, and so I got it all unkinked. It's been sort of a slow week, that's why the washing machine made the blog! Well, not so much slow as filled with grim news that I'm trying to not get bogged down in.
