They just don’t make them like they used to!
The dishwasher is fixed. Hopefully for a long time. However….
While the repair guy was there I was foolish enough to do a load of laundry. (Tons of towels from cleaning up the dishwasher flood!)
His ears perked up like Dr. Spock’s. “What’s that noise?”
The washing machine has been making a banging sound for a couple of months. I was thinking it was as unbalanced as its owner. Since it doesn’t effect the owner much I didn’t give it a second thought.
The bearings are shot. The prognosis is that one day (fairly soon according to the intensity of the noise) it would flood the laundry room.
We are getting used to internal floods. We use Jake’s old towels to clean up the water. It’s almost a non-event. Mild grumbling, no really bad words.
That doesn’t mean we like it though. The beloved husband looked at me after the guy left and said “Let’s go shopping.”
A few google searches; some price checks; and we were in the car. We found what we need at the first stop. I’m a simple washing person. High, low, hot, cold, long, short – that’s about it. Don’t need delayed start or steam setting or any of the other ones that I don’t know what they do.
We got the same thing we have but the bottom level. It washes clothes but doesn’t make a cappuccino. That will work for me (although a nice cappuccino….).
However….while we were there I fell in love with a range hood. (Yes, I need to get my hormones checked! Whatever happened to coveting Tom Cruise?) Still checking that out. This maybe our all-time high appliance week ever!
Author’s note: For perspective our home is 13 years old. We have replaced all our appliances at least once. This is our third washer although the first one was the old one from our other house. Seriously, they don’t make them like they used to. My Mom replaced her appliances when they got way too ugly after two decades!
