robiewankenobie! The repair man showed up at 5:30, and her time was the closest. Honorable mention to radcliffe for second place. Congratulations! Here is your award, to proudly display on your lj page!
Ironically, it cost us $93 to find out the problem was that the roto-rooter man had turned off the cold water to the washer when he was working on our drain, and hadn't turned it back on. This would cause the washer to stall at the rinse cycle, as it was waiting for the cold water. He took the machine apart, found nothing wrong, then discovered that the cold water was off. Well, fiddle-de-crap.
