Today we had an early celebration of mom’s birthday, which is actually on next Friday by Chinese calendar.

We went for dinner outside and then adjourned back home for cake-cutting candle-blowing celebration.

Washing Machine 101

8 01 2012

The washing machine was making loud clicking noises when it went into Spin mode, which was bad news. I decided to try and tackle it myself, as it might be as simple as aligning or cleaning some parts.

Well, after an hour of troubleshoot, I finally found the source of the problem: a broken gear motor. A spot of Google search and I saw that it can potentially be replaced by myself but first, I’ll have to find a place that sold it and sadly, no one sold it via the net.

So I went to Jalan Pasar to look for it and lo and behold, I found one!

It’s amazing what kinda stuffs could be found there. New gear motor on the left, broken original on the right.

All done, and the washing machine is as good as new. And there you have; repairing a washing machine isn’t that difficult.

Darn it, I gotta stop praising myself for being so GOOD!
