|Waiting to be Washed!|
To get started on my first ever laundry day in Colombo, I spent an hour trying to figure out one major problem: how to get the water in. It has to be connected to a water source (water faucet) for it to function effectively. I couldn’t make the connection stick to the faucet. And somehow when you put water manually (which I tried doing) the mechanism won’t work. So instead of wasting the day away trying to figure it out, we just asked the help of the maintenance guy in the building.
|That's how it should work...|
|Efficiency at its finest: straight to drain!|
And fix the problem he did. The water comes in from the back of the machine going through the laundry powder source. And I guess that was the reason why it only works when water comes in that way.
|It's working already!|
So after that, I didn’t have to do the laundry by hand (yippee!) – which is totally a chore. And now I understand why the washing machine is a housewife’s best friend!
