With all the clothesline gabble around here you may be surprised to hear we have a dryer and have even used it from time to time. We had a rainy spell here this week and when we went to use the dryer to finish up a load we had had hanging, it wasn't working.
Luckily, John is a whiz with fixing appliances, and he's been up to his elbows in washer and dryer guts more than once.
He even manufactured a part for our old washer out of an annealed clotheshanger once. I was so proud. sniff.
But when we went downstairs this morning to swap out what he thought was a busted heating coil (this dryer's most common problem), we found it was working fine. The problem was much more mundane.
