I'm not sure where you live in CA, but are you being affected by the fires?  It all looks so scary on the news.

Perhaps machine just needs a new belt .... that's all my machine needed when a similar thing happened to me years ago. New belt fixed the problem and machine has continued to work just fine.

  This one is only about 7 years old. 

Hope you can get it fixed.  My repair guy said they don't make appliances to last more than 7-ish years, so they can sell you a new one!  We fixed our washing machine several times, until the repair guy said it would be more expensive to fix than get a new one. But we got a new one that didn't have very many electronics, so hopefully it will last fairly long!




Very pretty!! Great job Carolyn.

Thanks for the info.  I hope that a belt is all it needs.  

The washer I had before this one, I had it for about 20 years before it crapped out.  Remember when I bought this new one, when I lived at the crooked condo?  haha  That's how long I have had this one.  This one has been moved twice now -- from condo to tiny apartment, then from tiny apartment to here.  I don't know if moving has much effect on them, unless they drop it or something.  haha  But I know it can't do them much good.  Anyway, I'll soon have a repairman check this one out, and like Judy said, maybe a belt is all it needs.  

Thanks,  I've been nervous about the size. I appreciate your comment.

While I was still in Oregon last year I told my friend, Anna, whom I made the quilt for, to go to a paint store and get me some paint chips of the colors she liked. Then when I got to Arizona and had picked out a pattern I took her paint chips to a fabric store and selected my fabric.  It has been a fun project . I'm glad to give it to her this week.
