Just a quick side note on this.
I read recently somewhere about a case where an internal situation caused the exterior metal casing of a washing machine to become "HOT". The individual touched the washer and the faucet of the laundry sink, & became the conductor. Somewhere within that article a GFI for the laundry circuit was SUGGESTED. Article may have been in ECN, or Elec. Contractor mags, or ?????
As to the $100 re-inspect fee, heck, we go back as many times as it takes, and can't charge a penny more. Is that a town fee, or do you have 'private' inspectors??
