Love My New Washer

Well, on my last post I wrote about our need for a new washing machine. After discussing it we decided to just get a top loader model and not put out the extra money for the one I really wanted, a front loader. So, I was very pleased when Chuck came home and told me he had ordered the front loader after the salesman had told him the extra savings in water and electricity was worth the extra money in the purchase price.

I washed my first load, today, and used just a little bit of soap. The spin cycle really gets the water out and so when I went to dry the clothes in the dryer I only had to let it run for just a bit and then took them out and hung them up to finish drying. I was so intrigued that I watched through the door of the washer for awhile and was amazed at how little water it used, too. Also, it holds more clothes than the typical top loader.

I have gone through many washers in my 37 years of marriage, this one "takes the cake." I'm in love with this new appliance! I would have really appreciated it thousands of loads ago!!!

You deserve a mighty washer!!! I am still surprised you did not have more than one in your house all these years! Especially not 2 ovens either!! :) Now to let the kids do the laundry in this new washer...right??? :)

Isn't it funny that we get excited about wash machines!! A few years back my hubby took one of our main floor bedrooms and turned it into a laundry room. Went out and bought another washer set and boy I was excited to have 2 washers. Now I just have to figure out how to get motivated to put 2 loads away at a time instead of one. But at least the clothes are washed and dried.

I would have loved to have had two washers when I had all the kids at home, even now wouldn't be a bad idea. What a great idea to turn an extra bedroom into a nice big laundry room. You should see my laundry room, it's so small that I have to close the door to put clothes from the washer into the dryer. I have to keep it very organized.
