I hate washing dishes, especially after I just prepared a huge meal.
So, I use my dishwasher a lot because it’s less of a hassle.
It only takes a few minutes to load the dirty dishes, insert the dishwasher pods, and flip the button to turn on the machine. Next to my stove it’s one of the most used machines in my kitchen. So, you can only imagine how devastated I was when my dishwasher broke. One night, I loaded up the dishes and was ready to start the machine, but when I pushed the button, nothing happened. At first, I didn’t know what was happening, so I opened it to check to see if anything was stuck inside. Nothing looked out of place. Well, I needed to call someone to repair the machine. Initially, I thought I would call a handyman, but then I discovered that a plumber can also fix a dishwasher. Fortunately for me, my neighbor’s husband Jim is a plumber. He has fixed leaky pipes in my house before and when my toilet needed a new flap, he helped me to install that. He has also installed new fixtures in my kitchen and bathroom. Therefore, Jim is who I call with all my plumbing needs. The next day, I contacted Jim who came over to try to repair the unit. Unfortunately, he could not, so I had to purchase a new dishwasher. Jim was able to get me a discount on a new machine and had it installed two days later. It’s great to have a plumber living next door to me. Plus, he gave me the family discount hourly rate.
