Anyway, whilst Mr Lovelygrey was away, the blade fell off inside the dishwasher and refused to click back on of its own accord. Surprisingly for someone with an extensively stocked tool box and an adversion to feminine titivation, I can be very girly when it comes to repairs, running to the nearest man. But Louis didn't have a clue and whilst my neighbour, John, is quite nifty in the DIY department, I decided to resist my initial temptation to beg for help next door. Instead I powered up the laptop and looked at a video on Ehow. This website is choc-a-bloc full of advice and videos about nearly everything.
The solution turned out to be really simple. I had a real and not metaphorical screw loose. Once I'd located the missing fixing in the cutlery basket all was well and I felt disproportionately proud of my own resourcefulness! So, the next time things go tits up for you on the domestic appliance front, might I suggest that your first step could be turning to the Internet? You'll have a good chance of finding a tutorial that could help you solve your own particular fix-it problem.
