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!~
