Surprisingly, my washing machine saga is NOT concluded today.
The repairman showed up at 8:20 (which I wasn’t expecting), and after a few minutes of tinkering declared that the washing machine had been repaired.
He came in with the timer, and after he left, I noticed that the timer in the box that he left behind looked awfully new. Hmm.
He also said to me “I’m surprised this wasn’t done already.” And I explained about the wrong timer being ordered – I think he was just trying to cover himself by pretending he didn’t know about that. I let it go.
So I was excited to get started on laundering all my clothes from traveling. I started with a cold wash with my jeans, and lo and behold, the washer leaked.
So do I believe that he “tested” the washing machine after “fixing” it? No, I do not.
I called them right away, and they’re sending someone out tomorrow morning. They had better think twice about charging me because I’m about thisclose to telling someone off. Not for nothing, but this has been an expensive process for me, and it should also have been a relatively simple one for them.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings…
