Hats off to my husband's Uncle who is a master of being able to fix it all! He came and worked on our washing machine for two hours, fixing what he thought was the timer and that was not the issue. What was the issue was the pump and too much felting with my knitting! This is not good since it looks like my large project felting days are over. My daughter was very happy when the washing machine was fixed, telling me "Now you can use it, was my blanket mommy!"
