I should be removing as much water as possible from my dishwasher which gave up the ghost in the middle of a washing cycle. I don't want to move it out of the kitchen just yet - but I don't want it starting to smell foul either.
I know, the sooner I start, the sooner I'll be finished and the happier I will be!!! There's nothing to stop me, except.........😩

Do you have a Shop Vac or know someone who does? It would make quick work of the water.

Ha! It was far easier than I thought! First using a plastic cup I got most of the surplus water out. I then added some clean water to dilute the rather aggressive washing up water, used the cup again, followed by a soup ladle to get lower down :lol:. Finally I stuffed a few yards of surplus surgical wipes on a roll (past the use-by-date) into the depths of the machine and extracted most of the surplus water! I cleaned the gaskets and was finished within 20 minutes. I spent more time worrying about the problem and reading about how messy the job is, than actually getting on with the task. Not a drop of water landed on the floor. Why am I such a worrier and procrastinator?
So now I'm back on TCS and should be answering emails from friends and relations! But, I don't know what to say, as they are not cat-lovers!!! :)

That happens to me a lot. Worry about something that turns out to be nothing and is over quickly.

Probably working but it's slow so don't really have anything else to do.
