John packed it up right away and took it to town in the morning for an estimate to fix it. As it turns out we bought our washing machine 10 years ago already. Time does fly when you are washing loads and loads! I was surprised to find the cost to fix it was $500 and a new one could be purchased for less. How crazy is that? I so appreciate my husband! He doesn't sit around and wait he gets a job done and fast!
John found a deal at Sears and picked one out for me. I have no opinion in this area as long as it fits a large load I am good. He brought our new washing machine home, hooked it up and started the first load. The kids are all excited at the new appliance and how nice it looks. The boys each learned how to operate it and I told them maybe I should not ever learn how and they could do all of the laundry. George typically does his own and he is quite happy with this new and improved machine. It automatically senses the size of the load and adjusts the water amount to that. Quite nice.
