Yep, its days are numbered.
The SUD problem of the year ought six (do a search here for "washing machine") is starting up again and it's becoming noisier and noisier as I use it. And the house shakes when it spins. Nice, huh?
We have to turn up the television and shout at one another to be heard over the sounds it puts out. Sadly, having it repaired is just not cost effective. As much as that would be, I can get a brand new machine. Not a front loader, though. We looked at Lowe's the other day and there were a couple that I really liked. We've got to figure out the financing, though and try to get the best deal we can.
(I'm trying to type and Rachel has decided she needs attention RIGHT NOW and she's licking me and shoving her head into me.)
I thought I fixed it the other day, when it was empty I shook the tub. The worst rattle wasn't happening any longer, I knew this because I didn't hear it running in the office. But I found out later that's because it wasn't spinning very quickly.
I'll probably have a new one in a couple of weeks.
I hate spending the money, but we need a washer. And a dryer.
It will be nice to not shout when doing laundry.
