Thing I Learned: Washing Machines Are Computers Too

So, my washing machine stopped spinning, which means it wasn't really cleaning clothes effectively. I went to the place I bought it and they turned me onto a fellow from Frankfurt named Tim who they recommended. Tim came over the same day I called him (yesterday) and had a look at me busted GE, top-loading washing machine, which is only a few years old.

I anticipated some sort of opening up and messing with screws and gears and motors and stuff. Tim opened it up, and plugged it into his laptop, which then told him what was wrong with it. The computer said something was wonky with the motor, maybe, but like any computer, the first step was to reboot the thing. 

Tim rebooted my washing machine and it now totally works. How do you reboot a washing machine? He showed me! Unplug it, let it sit for a minute, then plug it back in and during those first 30 seconds, open and close the lid 7 times in rapid succession. There's a little magnetic sensor in the lid that makes a connection when its closed, so cycling that connection 7 times resets the mother board.

I just learned that.

There are those days when our laundry duties drain the strength out of us. Luckily, there is washing machine tough enough for huge loads but also gentle enough for sensitive fabric. With more than 2 wash cycles to choose from and with extra delicate and hand washable features, you will not go wrong with your washing. The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II has everything.
