Disemvowel works in workspace but does not pass test

Hey guys sorry but i'm getting frustrated. I understand this is not the best solution but as i said i was getting a little frustrated and i just wanted to pass.

This works in the WorkSpace and my local python install but will not pass the test. Unfortunately i saw the solution when looking for help so i know that now but i'd like to know why this isn't passing. I really wish this site showed us the test/results or some type of hint...

def disemvowel(word):
    word = word.lower()
    end_word = ""
    for letter in word:
        if letter in 'aeiou':
            end_word += letter
    return end_word

Figured it out, had to do with capitalization and not returning the exact same case.
