What happened with your washing machine installation?
He was earnest and funny, now he's gone all cynical and troll-y. WHat happened, monkeyman?
basically, the washing machine spent 31 days sat in the middle of the kitchen. I lost the respect of my gf and her entire family as it sat there, a reminder of my basic diy failings. Then, after visits (numerous) to Argos and calls to Hotpoint(numerous) I finally took delivery on the thinnest, most pithy piece of corrugated plastic I have ever seen.
Then I realised I didn't have the right connector for the waste pipe and had to visit 5 plumbing stores in a day. In the end, just went with what i had and hoped for the best.
She now runs like a dream (with a bucket underneath the waste pipe for when it leaks).
This is my washing machine story
