Laundry woes

I hate to even tell you about it… I think I mentioned it briefly not too long ago and it also was a problem in January. What am I talking about? washing machines.

Yes, once again my washing machine is on the fritz. Either a belt is loose or the motor is dying because it doesn’t spin. At least not all the time. Every once in awhile I can do a few small loads and it’ll work. I’m not sure if I tire it out or if I get too excited and make the loads too heavy. Either way it’s an annoyance and the budget doesn’t really allow for purchasing a new machine.

With six people in one home, you know the laundry is piled to the ceiling, right?

Although I would like to. Really, really badly.

Whether its one of the zanussi washing machines or a hotpoint washing machine; I’m all for it. I’m not going to be picky about the brand – well, that is if someone wants to give me one (or a set!) as a gift.

I – as an adult – have never had a new washing machine and dryer so I think it’s about time I had one. The first used one I bought in 1997 lasted for about five years, which was great. So when I went to get another used one in January I thought it would be a positive experience. I was wrong.

Time to start shopping and comparing prices. What kind of washing machine do you have?
