Resetting a Maytag Maxima Steam X Front Load Washer

I have a Maytag Maxima steam x front load washer. In mid cycle it throws e01 and f08 codes, the door will not unlock and there is no power. Here is my tip. I kept unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in over and over for about 15 minutes, continuously. It finally unlocked and reset itself.

Condo Gardening

Living in an apartment, I've tried community gardens. I am not a great fan of it, because I actually had to commute to the garden, which was time consuming and cost gas, which defeated the purpose for me. I tried other options. I have two balconies, one faces west the other east, so great sun exposure.

Vinegar to Freshen up a Musty Room

I keep a bowl of white vinegar on my stove to keep cooking odors down. When a closet or room starts to smell musty or stale, I put a bowl of white vinegar on a shelf for a few days. This usually takes care of just about any smell. It was especially good when my son was a teenager.

Reusing Grocery Bags for Garbage

I recycle my grocery plastic bags, by filling them up with trash as they hang by the sink. When full, I close them and put them in my trash can. That way I recycle two ways. After I take out the trash from kitchen to the trash can I get to reuse my trash bag if it's still in immaculate condition.

Remedy for Pain from New Dentures

I'm in my mid 30s and had a full extraction done 11 months ago. I just got my permanent dentures. The tops are awesome. The bottoms fit fantastically, but I am so freaking sore by the end of the day and it hurts. I actually cry when I put them in. I've been swishing with salt water and taking Advil.
