A few months ago the washing machine stopped working. It took numerous attempts over a month before it was fixed. Every time I went to work on it, Oliver was right there to assist!

A nose for finding trouble
We narrowed the problem down to the motor
I found a motor wire that had shorted out on the motor mount. After finding a used motor on ebay for $72 I swapped out the motor, only to find out it wasn't the motor!

Turns out the problem was the $18 capacitor! Always best to start with the cheapest parts when replacing parts. Oh well, now I have a spare motor! Thanks to Oliver's help the washing machine got fixed! I love having a handyman-cat even though the lap snuggles in the middle of work slows things down.
