comment Top Loading Washer Leaks from bottom of machine.. Usually Worth Repairing, or Time to Upgrade?
It depends on what and how exactly leaks. It may be for example the drain filter cover loosened - then you just clean the filter, tighten the cover and continue using your appliance.

comment What is the life expectancy of a washing machine motor?
+1 It can even go like this: the machine breaks in an unexpected way and right at the same time you neighbor is relocating and wants to sell his machine at "cheap as dirt" price.

comment What steps should I take after kitty litter has been washed down the drain?
It's so sad people think that whatever they don't know how to deal with should be flushed into toilet.

comment Is there a technique to make a shower mirror fog-free?
@Spike: Heating cables for such installations feature multiple layers of insulation and even a surrounding wire mesh that can (and should) be grounded. Add to this "differential" circuit breakers - and risk of electric shock becomes lower than risk of falling and getting a head injury that way. Electric water heaters don't make you worry, do they?

comment Is earthing required for a submersible water pump?
@Federico Russo: Yeap, I remember an experiment at school: two electrodes are submerged into distilled water and complete a circuit used to power an old boring 60 watts incandescent bulb. At first there's no current since the water is distilled. Then maybe a spoon of salt is dropped into water and mixed with a glass stick - the bulb immediately goes to full power.

Yes, I know that distilled water is an insulator, however typical drinking water contains salt dissolved and thus is an electrolyte.
