Washer and Dryer, Old versus New

About 6 1/2 years ago we bought one of those washer/dryer combos (the washer on the bottom and the dryer on the top). Well a few months ago the dryer died, never to rise from the ashes like a phoenix. The washer has been hanging on to its dead companion, quietly mourning its demise.

Today we went to Sears and bought a new washer and dryer (separate, not a combo), and they will be delivered Wednesday.

The old washer/dryer will be escorted to washer/dryer heaven where they will spend eternity in loving embrace, recalling fond memories of “wet” nights and “hot” days.

  1. Hey. I read this, but I guess I was on my phone and didn’t leave a comment. (Those phones my be smart, but they’re crappy to type on). Well, I’m glad you got a big ol washer dryer. Everyone I’ve know who had a combo had one part go out before the other. Is it too much to ask for an appliance to die all at the same time?

    i thought of you yesterday. I was out looking for a pirate costume and wondered if your son still had that fancy shirt you made for him?

  2. Yes, he still has the shirt and he is wearing it with his 3 muskateers outfit this year to a couple of parties.

  3. The place we’re staying in now has one of those double decker machines…I must say I was taken aback when I opened up the washer…it is tiny! I had a Kenmore Extra Duty washer and dryer where you could practically wash all the laundry at one time! Then I thought I broke the washer lid because it “latched” up on top and I didn’t know they did that. Should have seen me panic trying to figure out how to get the lid down. And don’t even ask me about the dryer’s lint catcher. 😦
