    barrel

    Should barrel be plural or singular. It is in front of a noun so it should be an adjective? Adjectives can't be pluralized?

    How do I take apart the 2 barrels Washing machine?

    I'd say "How do I take apart the two-barrel Washing machine?" or
    "How do I take the two-barrel Washing machine apart?"
    What does the product instructions call it? (Still, I suppose if you had that, you wouldn't need to ask how to take it apart)

    PS: Don't they teach anymore that numbers up to ten should be written out in full? Just curious.
