We Waited a Long Time for These!


About 7 months ago we noticed water on our laundry room floor. David took a look at our washing machine and noticed there was a part with a crack in it. We ordered in the part and David got it fixed... for a few months. We decided since we couldn't figure out the problem we would just buy a new washing machine when we got our tax return. Starting at the end of January the leak was so bad we couldn't even use it. So when we got our tax return at the beginning of February we went to Home Depot and looked around. We had planned on not spending a lot, but found an amazing deal we couldn't give up. Our washing machine and dryer were originally $800 each, but I guess Home Depot ordered too many so they were selling them for $500 each. Plus we got $150 back from Questar and Rocky Mountain Power. Which would make them $425 each. It was supposed to be delivered the next Friday. On Monday we recieved a call saying the washing machine and dryer were on back order until March 9th. A whole month later. We were not happy since we hadn't had a washing machine in a couple weeks. David decided to call and see if they could do anything to make this up to us and she said they would take 10% off. That made these wonderful #1 consumer rated washer and dryer $375 each plus tax. I am in love with them. Even though David has been so wonderful and has done all the laundry since we got them on Tuesday!

Fun front loaders! And they face the right way so you don't have to lift over doors.

Yeah! I can't figure out why some people have them facing the wrong way so that you have to lift over the doors! There is one place I do laundry where I accidently load the dirty laundry in to the dryer every time because it is where I think the washer should be...
