My washing machine has been on the fritz. I did a little research into the problem and decided we'd be better off buying new rather than repairing. So I went to Krisay's on Friday and ordered a new one. It is scheduled to be delivered this Friday.
On Saturday, I did laundry as usual and kept my fingers crossed that the machine would hold out. It crapped out in the middle of the last load. Brian was going to take it to the laundromat, but then we remembered that we have another house that has a washing machine (our rental, which is currently for sale, and thus not occupied). Problem solved.
I have four loads lined up for Friday already, so this new machine is going to get a workout.
