Disemvowel challenge - Where am I going wrong?

Here is my code for the disemvowel challenge. I've ran it locally on an IDE and seem to get the expected result.

def disemvowel(word): vowels=["a","e","i","o","u","A","E","I","O","U"] my_list=list(word)

for letter in word:
    if letter in vowels:
word = "".join(my_list)
return word


def disemvowel(word):
    return word

Hey David! I just copied your code into the challenge and it almost passed. The error I got said that there was an inconsistent use of tabs and spaces. This just means you need to start each line in the code with either four spaces or a tab. Another thing, when you copied your code into this question you only wrote part of it in syntax, so I had to figure out where each of the bits of code that weren't in syntax ended and the next line began, and I might have fixed an indentation error when I did that. :) Was that clear? Let me know if you need more help. :)
