Dryer broke but not anymore

I went to dry a load of clothes yesterday and the dryer wouldn't turn on. I waited until my husband woke up from a nap and he tried it and he said we need to take it out of the laundry room and tear it apart. Mind you this room isn't much bigger than a walkin closet. The washer as you can see had to come out first to get to the dryer. Jeff is so weak he can't do the lifting and pulling anymore so I got the refridgerator cart out of the shed and lugged it into the house. I got the washer which weighs a ton out of the laundry room and got the dryer moved so he could take it apart. We had the back off, the tub out of it and the front off.
Jeff use to rewind electric motors so he knew what he was doing. He did this kind of work for over 20 years. But not all the tools were in the house and he couldn't get up off the floor without help. So I scrubbed the walls and the floor underneath it. Also I got the inner parts of the dryer cleaned up while it was apart. Happy to say he used all my sewing machine oil up to get it fixed, but hey it works and I didn't have to replace the dryer right now. The room is all cleaned up and pleasant to look at now. But I am wore out and I went and bought a pizza for supper. No cooking for me after all that. Chris

Your husband sounds like my husband ! He will take it apart and fix the darn thing!! Good for you for cleaning up while it was out the room!! It always feels so good after you have cleaned a room and just think of all the money he saved by fixing it!!!

You are so blessed. Mine has been out of the state for 8 months trying to move us. So far I have been without a dryer, and hot water for almost a year. The washer also needs to be replaced. I am glad you have luck and a good life.

I didn't mean that sarcastic or in a mean way at all. My life is just a mess, sorry if that sounded mean towards you, not at all. I am sincerely happy for you.
