Life lession #1,496,732. When you are looking to purchase a new washer and dryer ... go ahead and ooooh and aaaaah over the pretty ones. You know the ones I am talking about ... every little thing that could make your life simpler and make laundry less of a chore and just think about how sweet it will look in your laundry room and all your neighbors will have laundry envy. After you have ooooohed and aaaaaahed, move on down to the inexpensive ones ------ the washer with three wash cycles and the dryer with three heat cycles. Period. Just do it. Trust me, the cheaper ones outlast the expensive ones and they get your laundry just as clean and dry. Luckily, the nice man from Big Store Appliance Repair was able to work a little magic today and get my Elec*****x dryer working again (less than two years old). Before that one, my Sam***g dryer tore up four times in three years. The matching Sam***g washer is still working, but only after three service calls (and the rinse and spin only cycle does not work). If the nice man from Big Store Appliance Repair had NOT been able to work a little magic today, you would have seen a giant bonfire in the McCormick front yard in Dogwood estates with some crazy woman running around it screaming. Sanity saved for one more day. I am finished ranting now.
