BOISE, Idaho — Chrissy Johnson - wife of KTVB anchor Mark Johnson - was told by an appliance repairman that her 5-year-old Samsung washing machine needed a new drain pump which would cost $340 to install.
After researching the process online and watching videos on YouTube, she decided to do the project herself, despite having no experience at doing appliance repairs.
She purchased a $25 pump on Amazon and then, with the proper tools in hand (borrowed from a neighbor), she went to work. Watch the process the video above.
