How to repair an old Dell appliance
When I was in elementary school, the only appliances I had were my own, and they were all from the local hardware store.
I was always very careful not to take any chances with them, especially when they were new.
I could tell a lot about an appliance by its color and size.
I didn’t want to be a junk yard.
But when I was 13, I decided I wanted to do something different with my life.
I wanted a big, black, and white dishwasher that I could put in my closet.
And I decided that I would build it.
I decided to build my own dishwasher.
For the first year or so, I was a very independent kid.
My dad owned a local hardware supply store.
My mom worked in a grocery store.
And my brother and I were the only kids in our family who could afford to buy our own food.
So we made it a point to cook our own meals at home.
As a kid, I loved being able to cook for myself.
My parents and I had never done anything like this before.
We would always have to use our parents’ cookbooks, which they bought for us from the library.
And we’d buy the ingredients at our local grocery store, which we usually got from the butcher shop.
One night, we were watching the TV and I suddenly saw a picture of a new dishwasher at a grocery shop.
It was so beautiful.
It looked like the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.
It had a beautiful finish.
And it had an enormous cabinet.
I was blown away.
I remember looking at it and saying, “Wow, this is really cool.
This is what I want to do.”
I got my hands on it and started to build it right away.
But I had no idea how long it would take me to finish.
So I started to worry.
Would I be able to finish it?
Would it work?
I spent a lot of money on parts.
And then one day, I woke up and realized I had a lot more to learn.
I went to my mom and dad and told them that I was about to build a new appliance.
They were thrilled.
They said, “I want you to do it.”
So I did it.
My dad said, I want you and I to work on the kitchen.
He and I started by taking apart all the appliances.
We stripped them down and then we put everything back together.
I had to take everything apart because my wife had been having problems with her kitchen stove.
And so we had to start from scratch.
So that’s what I started with.
We started by getting everything out of the kitchen, starting with the sink, washing machine, refrigerator, and the refrigerator.
And the kitchen is the biggest component of the appliance.
And to get rid of all those appliances, I had everything cut down and ready to go.
I cut the dishwasher down to size, the sink down to the size of a coffee cup, and everything else down to about a quarter of its original size.
Then I got rid of the cabinets.
I got the shelves and the shelves, the counters, the countertops, the cabinet, and my mother’s painting.
I took everything out, removed the carpeting, and I put everything on its own shelf.
And that’s where we started.
And we had everything lined up, ready to be installed.
And when we were finished, I sat down in front of the television and told my dad to tell me the parts I needed to do.
And he told me the instructions.
And what he told him was that he needed to cut the cabinet down to a half-inch.
He wanted to cut it down to 1/2 inch.
And for the dishes, I needed 1/8 inch.
I needed a 7/16 inch sink, so I needed 6/8-inch sink.
And a 1/4-inch dishwasher, so we needed 1-1/2 inches.
And those were the parts that I needed.
And just like that, the entire appliance was assembled.
So then I got to work.
I started measuring the sink.
The first step was to take the sink apart.
So first I put my dad’s coat hanger in there, and then I took the whole thing apart, and put the pieces in a piece of butcher paper and cut them out.
And all I had left was the drain hose.
And now I was done.
The sink was the only appliance in the house that I didn�t have any tools for.
I only had a little scrap piece of wood.
But this piece of scrap paper, I cut into half a dozen pieces.
And with my father�s help, I built up a small wall of scrap wood and I built a little table and a little desk and a couple of chairs.
And after all of that, I put in the dish sink. Next,
