Helpful hint: You may think that the hooks on the back of the machine are to help keep the tubes straight once you’ve plugged in the machine. You’re wrong. Unless you want the *damn* machine to keep trying to vibrate itself through the wall, you’ll remove the hooks. And replace them with the easily lost caps found in the promotional bag of detergent. Then instead of having to (unsuccessfully) restrain the machine during the spin cycle, you can continue on with the Deutsch lessons AND actually have clean laundry.
