I read an article this summer that said this time of year is the best to buy certain appliances and with the Labor Day sales announced this past week, I started to do some research. The amount of water saved with a new high efficiency washer makes the cost of the machine just about paid for over time. And the more I researched, the thought of having appliances that don't leak or burn clothes was pretty appealing.
So this weekend, I broke down and bought these bad boys at Lowes. They were delivered yesterday evening.
The only drawback? The drum inside the washer is enormous so it's very difficult for me to grab a lone sock or unmentionable sitting on the bottom without almost falling inside. I may need to put a small stool nearby for such an occasion.
