Re: PJs stuck in wasmachine

Your putrid PJ's are sacrificing themselves for your own sake and for all mankind. A sort of Captain Oates moment but in reverse.

Dig a hole, bury the machine with the PJ's entombed inside. It is the kindest thing you can do.

What's long, hard, pink, hairy and smelly, and hangs out of PJ bottoms?
Probably not what I am thinking!

Re: PJs stuck in wasmachine

In the meantime, look up the machine and model number, Google the manufacturer and ask them to send you an instruction manual or instructions on how to empty the machine when 'stuck'.

Most machines have a small door at the bottom that you can open to let the water drain into a bucket (have 2 ready so you can replace the first when you empty it) and a manual way to open the machine.

Re: PJs stuck in wasmachine

I'm afraid you've had it now. You put your clocks forward last night and are now an hour ahead. The PJs, trapped in the washing machine, couldn't do that so are still an hour behind.

You are now both in different parallel universes and as yet there is no way to jump from one to another. You'll need to wait until the end of October.

No. Back away slowly. It's gone, now. You can't help it.

This is major issue. You should contact your Ambassy emergency number.

Re: PJs stuck in wasmachine

I had this problem just before xmas...

What is the make/model of your washing machine?

Step 1, turn off the machine. turn it on again and set to the program to drain.

Step 2, still doesn't work? turn it off again and empty the water by opening the drainage plug (hopefully you have a drain nearby and the machine is not in your bathroom). Then pull/push/twist/trigger the emergency door lever (the action changes depending on your washing machine). Once the machine is empty, try turning it on again.

Step 3, still doesn't work? if renting contact your agent for a repairman to visit. Our machine was over 10 years old so they just bought a new one - happy days. But it did take almost a week for resolution.

Re: PJs stuck in wasmachine

Well, I got up this morning bright and early, looking forward to my washing day, as we only get one day every couple of weeks, no hand washing for a few days, lovely fluffy towels etc.
Then I read this thread, had a giggle, felt a little sorry for the OP and his/her lost pyjamas and flooded cellar, wandered down to our cellar and started my washing.
I am now convinced this thread jinxed my day .
First, towels came out of the washer dripping wet, spin cycle obviously not working! Put them in the dryer anyway, switched on. An hour later returned to towels which were warm and wet!
Didn't know how to just run the spin cycle, so put towels back in washer on a wool cycle for a quick wash, and thankfully this time the spin cycle worked. Towels back in the tumble dryer, an hour later, towels warm and wet!!! The **!#!*## dryer wasn't working!!!!
Meanwhile I had done another load of washing, couldn't dry them either and I now have a flat full of steaming towels and clothes.
So thanks OP, just hope you've liberated your pj's by now. Have a lovely evening.

Gee! thanks for your understanding message and deep concern!
Perhaps you could bring your wet thingies round to my place (with a complimentary bottle of roat vine of course!) and I could supervise your tumbling.
Doesn't it feel wonderful being back in control again!!

Happily, I can report that my jim-jams have been rescued early Sunday a.m. A dark coloured (notice the superflous "u") Ford Transit appeared and disgorged a bunch of lovies dressed in jump suits and wearing black balaclavas who then engineered the daring rescue.
