Problems with this challenge

Problems with this challenge, it's working on my python shell here, for some reason, though, I'm not passing the challenge....

def disemvowel(word):
    words = list(word)
    vowels = ["a","e","i","o","u","A","E","I","O","U"]
    for char in vowels:
        while True:
            except ValueError:
    return str(words)

string casting a list does not do anything. you need to use the join method on the list to turn it into a word. join is called on the delimiting string with the argument being the collection whose elements you want to join, so here you don't need a delimiter since you're trying to make a word, so use the empty string (two single quotes) ''.join(myList) like that. also you don't need to pass before you break so that can be removed.
