Last week, I went to throw a load of laundry in the dryer (with my BRAND NEW dryer balls, even!) and was met with silence.
OK…COULD mean that the switch wasn’t thrown all the way. So, I turn it on and off like 4 times. Crap.
Hmmm…let’s check the breaker box.
Rather than piss myself off more, I hung my clothes all over my basement and went to bed.
Next day, after work, I take the back off my dryer (where the cord connects) and see THIS
Don’t know if you can see it or not, but the damn terminal strip is MELTED. The ONLY wire left connected was the neutral/ground. Holy CRAP! Good thing it just MELTED and didn’t catch fire.
From previous experience (plug blew once before, but didn’t MELT), I knew I could probably fix it. It was just a matter of finding the part. Which I did! Here.
So, I ordered the part and got it yesterday. Unfortunately, it didn’t come with the little disconnect tabs that I needed and I figured I should err on the side of caution and buy YET ANOTHER !&%&*$&% power cord.
I am happy to report that my dryer is currently drying a load of clothes and will get ANOTHER load in a few minutes.
I love when I can thumb my nose at “weak woman-itis”.
I am not just a woman, I am a CAPABLE woman and a GODDESS!!!
