My code runs on my win10 laptop using python IDLE but it won't run in the Treehouse workspace.

I'm stuck on the disemvowel.py exercise. My code runs fine on my Surface Pro 6 Win10 pc but I keep getting an error message in the Treehouse workspace.

The error message is:

"X Bummer: Hmm, got back letters I wasn't expecting! Called disemvowel('vuAuPs') and expected 'vPs'. Got back None."

'''def disemvowel.py(word):

   wordlist = list(word)
   vowelslist = ['a','A','e','E','i','I','o','O','u','U']

   for vowel in vowelslist:

        wordlist = [l for l in wordlist if l != vowel]

   word = ''.join(wordlist)

You need a return statement instead of print. Why the checker sees none is because your function doesn't return anything.
