The washing machine gave out on Saturday evening. The spinner wouldn't spin, and a really bad smell was coming out of the washer.

BF gets home, looks at it, decides it's probably a belt that's too stretched to fit properly. He takes the washer apart and replaces both belts (on Monday, because everywhere is closed on Sunday). Still no go.

Washing machine repairman comes out Monday night, takes a look at the washer, puts his hand inside the washer and runs it along the top. He pulls out a sock that had gotten stuck in the drum.

Duh...

So we paid $90 for a sock removal.

I LMAO when BF told me. He felt kinda foolish, but what the heck. At least I didn't have to get a new washing machine.
