our new washing machine

As I write this our 20+ year old washing machine is sitting at the end of our driveway, in the rain, waiting to be hauled away. This is the 3rd major appliance we have had to replace since we bought our house four years ago, not too shabby considering  the advanced age of these machines.

The last few times I did laundry, the end result was a giant puddle behind the machine slowly making its way into the adjacent kitchen. Upon inspection, we discovered that all the hoses and connections were intact but the bottom of the unit was rusted out.

As always, we carefully research any purchase over $100 and ultimately both agreed on this Samsung High Efficiency front loader. You can’t beat getting a $850 washing machine for $510! Eric also did a great job of talking me out of getting the matching set, after all, the dryer is still working fine and it’s hidden away, so we’ll worry about that replacement purchase at a later date.

Sears delivered the washer yesterday and after swapping detergent with a friend of mine (HE detergent only! Grr!) I am now able to do laundry puddle-free. :)

As part of the standard procedure around here, Riesling gave everything the once over and she approves.
