This code seems to work - but it wont pass the test :(

It works when I copied it over to workspaces. I'm not sure whats going on.

def disemvowel(word):
    word = word.lower()
    for letter in word:
        word = list(word)
        vowels = ['a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u']
        if letter in vowels:
    word = ''.join(word)
    return word

Remove this line. You do not have to modify the consonants.

    word = word.lower()

Put the capitals on the list.

vowels = ['a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u', 'A', 'E', 'I', 'O', 'U']
