Oh dear...

I'd like to introduce you to our washing machine.

Yesterday, it decided to be bad. Very, very bad. In fact, I'm pretty sure it grew a stomach because it decided to eat our clothes.

Yep, it ate them. There they are, stuck under the agitator. My poor shirt! And DH's poor apron!

We've tried for about an hour now to pull them out and no luck. Unfortunately there was no manual with the machine when we moved in, so we're not sure how to take the agitator thing off (if we even can?). I've already taken the cap off the top to look for some kind of bolt, but alas there was none. Any ideas? I suppose we'll have to call maintenance (what a silly thing to call for).

Oh the joys of renting!

I think I'm sold on a front loader for when we buy a house ;-)


  1. Oh no! I had my washing machine do that to a couple of my tank tops once...we had to cut one out, and the other one we are able to unwind after a lot of trying.

    Hope you're able to figure something out!

  2. tip the machine over. from the bottom unscrew some big screws. you should be able to pull out the motor assembly and remove your clothes. pay attention so you can put it back together...... sucks!

  3. omg i have no advice, but you are hilarious. lol

    on another note, will u tell me how you made your cute lil link buttons in your nest siggy?
