I have an old top loading clothes washing machine that needs repair. Yesterday, my helper loaded it all the way to the top, and ran the machine. It didn't like it.
It now has a slooow spin cycle and leaves several inches of the water still in the drum.
What do you think needs to be repaired on it? I suspect the pump. But maybe the motor too? A new, or even new to me machine was not in our plans!
Here is one list of available parts for my model. https://find.partswarehouse.com/?q=maytag+a112
I have ordered from this company for vacum parts and I am happy with their service.

Different type of poppy. I think it's a different family to the poppies that give goo.
I'm not comfortable telling you how to do it as it's illegal in much of the world.
Here's an article about poppies that explains some of the legal quagmire around this beautiful flower and how to make a soothing tea for pain relief

I have been mulching and burying wood downhill from existing trees and plantings in an effort to keep moisture in the soil over the dry season. However, the gopher tunnels are efficiently draining away water. We are thinking of strategies to interrupt the network of drainage tunnels. We have set traps, so far no luck. We hope to dig down and interrupt the tunnels so that the upcoming rains will silt up the holes.
We are thinking of adding some hugelkultur beds, starting below ground. Has anyone had gopher incursions into hugel beds? We only have maple and Doug fir to use , not ideal but what we have.
