Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Disemvowel

in Pycharm my code is working okay (at least I think so), but the webpage doesn't accept it

Can someone help me with this? I am not sure what I am missing here.

def disemvowel(word):
    word2 = list(word)
    word3 = ["a", "e", "i", "o", "u", "A", "E", "I", "O", "U"]

    for c in word2:
        for n in word3:
            except ValueError:
            print("Try vowel: {} in {}".format(n, word2))

    word = ("".join(word2))

got the answer few minutes after I submitted this question:

the form wanted me to: 'return word'

def disemvowel(word):
    vowels = "aeiouAEIOU"
    emptyString = ""

    for letter in word:
        if letter not in vowels:
             emptyString += letter
    return emptyString

Challenge Task 1 of 1

OK, I need you to finish writing a function for me. The function disemvowel takes a single word as a parameter and then returns that word at the end. I need you to make it so, inside of the function, all of the vowels ("a", "e", "i", "o", and "u") are removed from the word. Solve this however you want, it's totally up to you! Oh, be sure to look for both uppercase and lowercase vowels!
