The internet is populated with amateur scientists who test the limits of what you can put in a blender, what happens when you mix Diet Coke and Mentos and now, what a cinderblock does to a running washing machine.

The group behind the YouTube channel Photonicinduction do at-home experiments involving electricity and home appliances that -- more often than not -- end in some kind of fire or destruction.

With a near-broken washing machine at their disposal, they decided to finish it off with a cinderblock. The machine rumbles violently before falling over for good, never to do laundry again. If it ain't fixable, break it?

Watch the hilarious results below:
