Last Monday in the middle of doing laundry my washer freaked out with wierd noises and stopped in mid spin leaving my clothes wet and full of water. I closed the lid and tried to figure it out to no avail. I called for service and they showed up on Tuesday, they only spent 5 minutes looking before they told me the bad news....It will cost more to fix it than replace it. I was freaked out needless to say....
When I bought my Whirlpool Calypso 8 years ago it was touted as the washer to have and for $1,200 I expected that. I know people who have had their washers for 20+ years so come on wasn't it safe to assume that my 8 year washer had more years in it than that? It was HE and had the Energy Savings already. It was a top loader which I personally love, etc. etc.
Well after much snooping around like a crazy woman...As in ALL day Wednesday (day before my guests came and day before Thanksgiving) I finally decided to give in and just get the LG washer AND dryer front loaders which were rated very high and I basically stole ($682.22 for everything) thanks to Black Friday offers being offered before Friday. So even though timing wasn't sooo great with guests coming it was price wise a great time to buy.
Replacing an 8 year old clothes washer alone will save more than $60.00 in electricity costs and nearly 5,000 gallons of water per year, for more energy saving tips check them out here at AHAM.
So not only did I get a GREAT price for my washer and dryer, BUT in our town we get an energy rebate back of $100, yeah!
My guests left on Sunday, my appliances were delivered yesterday and I have been washing ever since. They make a goofy little song at the end of a cycle but otherwise I am really liking them and here is a plug for Sears....They ROCK! I haven't ever purchased from Sears before but now will for everything, painless on so many levels and pleasant too. Whirlpool could care less about me even after I found out about a class action suit against my 8 year old washer...Oh well, their loss.
I didn't ever think a washer and dryer could make me this happy, what has become of me? Would a new washer and dryer make you happy?
