Of course a woman CAN DO this - HA!!
For a couple of weeks now our dishwasher has been making this terrible crunching sound when the food disposal thing is running...
I thought the noise might possibly be a nut or seed or maybe even a small piece of hard plastic that had broken off of something. I gave it a bit to see if it would actually crunch and dissolve on it's own but, it didn't seem like that was going to happen.
So, after running the dishes through this morning and listening to that awful sound once again, I decided I had to see what was causing all that noise!
~it only took a couple of minutes to disassemble it -super easy!~
And this is what I found...a rusted screw!
I know it looks kind of GROSS but, I promise it really IS one :)
Problem SOLVED!


  1. Yay! If those women on TV can do home repairs....SO CAN WE!!!!!

  2. Good for you! I got brave enough to install a $5 garage sale dishwasher in my house last month. Makes you feel all smart and handy!

  3. Look at You Go Girl!.. I am very impressed!
    April you inspire me to see whats loose with the drum of my clothes dryer.
    Thank you Mrs fix it!

  4. Yay! You are awesome! We should start a repair company and specialize in dishwashers and washing machines! Way to go!

  5. I'm glad you found the problem, just like that! Better than paying for repair or a new dishwasher!
