33 minutes. That’s enough time to take care of the dinner dishes and clean out the litter boxes.
Kathy walked by about 10 minutes later. 29 minutes yet.
Hmm. I must have misread when I checked.
Dishes are washed and put away. Time to clean the boxes.
A quick glance. Wait. 40 minutes left. How can that be? I told Kathy that due to my fantastic deductive abilities I deduce that we have a problem. While I am telling her this beeps sound indicating everything is finished. No way. I went to check. It had stopped. All lights were off. I lifted the lid and checked what was inside. Clothes were soaking wet.
Great. We have a dead washer. We couldn’t dry the clothes with them being as wet as they were. I set the washer for drain and spin and turned it back on hoping this would get some of the water out of the clothes so that we could throw them into the dryer. It worked.
Needless to say, beside shopping for Thanksgiving dinner necessities we were shopping for a new washer as well.
It has been years since we bought the one we have so we had no idea what was out there. We found out. I think there was a bit of sticker shock when we started looking. Prices ranged from $500 to $1000 plus. Some were computerized. Some still had buttons and dials. Some were Wi-Fi accessible. Huh? Why would I need that.
The salesperson stated that many of the younger generation liked to start the wash while they were on they on their way home from work so it would be finished by the time they got home. Others didn’t feel like walking downstairs to start the wash so they just used their phone to turn the machine on.
Me, I don’t load the machine unless I am ready to turn it on at that time. I also don’t leave the house while the machine in running. I guess that is just me.
Anyway, after looking, comparing, and talking, we decided on a machine we liked. I will be delivered on Friday. Good, since the wash basket is piling up.
