Recently entered a post in May's Contest, answering 21 questions. The one that got noticed by a favorite client was # 18 about changing a dryer belt. I promised to share why!
Years ago, I had to call a plumber because there was no hot water entering my washing machine. The problem the plumber found; the hot and cold hoses switched. How would I have known? It only took a second to change.
So the next day, when the dryer stopped, I was not going to call the recently belittling contractor. I somehow figured out it was a broken belt. I purchased a new one and proceeded to open and disassemble the dryer. Oh my, What have I gotten myself into? I was about to give up when I heard:
“I knew you couldn’t fix that!”
Those are not words I accept! I did my research, went to an appliance store, had someone show me the mechanics of the machine, came home, and had that dryer working before the end of the day.
It was pretty simple once I took the machine apart.
Yes, I single-handedly put in a new dryer belt.
Would I or could I do it again?
We'll never know! Once is enough to prove the point.
Please don't tell me I cannot do something.
