I lastly obtained my new washer and dryer final week! I spent about two months and not using a washer as a result of I simply couldn’t make up my thoughts. I had just about determined to go along with the Velocity Queen as a result of so many individuals really useful that model, however I simply couldn’t make myself undergo with that closing buy.

So I saved laying aside the choice and washing garments by hand 😀 . Matt had already given me one deadline about 4 weeks into not having a washer, and I blew proper previous that deadline due to my indecision. So across the six week mark, I used to be heading to Residence Depot to get some paint or one thing like that, and as I used to be strolling out the door, I heard Matt say, “And PLEASE purchase a washer and dryer!!” So I knew I had higher not less than give the washers and dryers at Residence Depot a really severe look earlier than coming dwelling.
Properly, the Residence Depot worker that helped me that night made issues so easy. He was an older man, and he jogged my memory a lot of my late step-father. Speaking to him felt like I used to be speaking with an outdated buddy, and fairly actually, he most likely might have bought me something. He might have simply satisfied me that I wanted a brand new fridge, and I most likely would have purchased one. 😀
After I began wanting on the washers and dryers that night, I went on to the highest loaders with the agitators. I used to be about 99% certain that’s what I wished. However when my new buddy instructed me that he would solely ever purchase a entrance load washer, I wasn’t going to doubt him!
So we headed to the entrance loaders, he pointed me to a set that he really useful, and whereas he instructed me all about his spouse, his travels, his adventures, his semi-retirement, I appeared up the shopper evaluations on this set. And it simply so occurs that my new trusted buddy led me on to some of the highly-rated washer and dryer units I’ve ever come throughout. So I didn’t even query the choice or name Matt to speak it over with him. I simply purchased them. Let me present you what I purchased.
I completely love this set. It was delivered final Thursday, and I used it just about nonstop for 3 days. The primary time I did load of laundry, I stood there watching it virtually the entire time considering to myself, “There’s no method that’s going to get garments clear!” 😀 I nonetheless don’t perceive how these entrance loaders get garments clear, however I’m a believer now! My towels have by no means come out of the wash this clear earlier than!
This explicit washer holds 50 ounces of laundry detergent at a time, and meters out the quantity it wants for every load. Then it notifies me on my cellphone when it’s operating low. I additionally love that the washer and dryer each ship notifications to my cellphone when the laundry is 5 minutes from being carried out, after which when it’s carried out.
The washer can also be able to washing AND drying a small load of laundry with out having to maneuver the load to the dryer. I’ll most likely by no means use that function as a result of it takes perpetually (I’ve had an all-in-one earlier than, and I hated it), but it surely’s a pleasant function to have simply in case I must be gone all afternoon and wish a specific one thing to be washed and dried by the point I get dwelling.
Anyway, I completely love this set, and I’m so thrilled with my buy. And I LOVE the UltraFresh vent system in order that I can hold the door closed and never have to fret about unhealthy smells within the washer. The thought of getting to maintain the door open to maintain it from stinking was one among my largest points with a entrance loader, however with this one, it’s not a problem.
So whereas I’m completely thrilled with my purchases, it’s such an enormous disappointment seeing these stunning new home equipment in my present hideous “laundry room”. Folks ceaselessly ask me the place our laundry room is as a result of I by no means present it or discuss it. Properly, I by no means present it or discuss it as a result of it’s actually the worst room in the home. Whereas each different room in our home began out tough, they had been all price saving. They’d good bones, so to talk.
Our washer and dryer sit within the so-called “sunroom”, which is the one room in the home that doesn’t even have good bones. It’s not even worthy of a lipstick-on-a-pig sort of makeover. I wouldn’t even need to waste cash on paint for this room. The one possibility is to tear it down and begin over, which is strictly what we plan to do…ultimately. It’s an enormous room (about 13 ft by 30-something ft) the place I retailer my instruments and residential enchancment provides on one facet, and the on the opposite facet is the “laundry room.” So right here’s a glimpse at my “laundry room”.
The room makes me really feel unhappy. And scared. It doesn’t have a lightweight, so I completely hate entering into there at night time. The ground is layers of plastic, particle board, and business carpeting positioned over what I presume is the unique patio. A few years in the past, an animal chewed a gap within the very skinny wall, and a possum obtained in and couldn’t discover its method out and died within the nook. So the room simply freaks me out. I hold the doorways in the back of the music room closed 100% of the time, and any time somebody has to return again right here, I apologize profusely. I’m uninterested in doing that. I need this room gone so badly.
If you happen to’re confused about the place this room is, let me make clear. That is the room that’s simply past the again music room doorways, that are at all times closed.
See this closed up window above the washer and dryer?
That’s the window that was within the hallway toilet.
After I transformed that rest room, many individuals couldn’t perceive why on the earth I might take away a window.
Properly, it’s as a result of that window wasn’t an exterior window. So right here’s what the ground plan of our home appears to be like like proper now…
And the objective is to tear down that sunroom, in addition to the unique tiny “grasp toilet” (which remains to be sitting there, however is now fully inaccessible), and so as to add on three rooms, together with a laundry room.
I lengthy for that day! I’m so grateful for my new washer and dryer, however I’m able to have an precise laundry room that I’m not afraid to stroll into at night time, and that doesn’t have a squishy particle board flooring, and that I do know will likely be free of untamed animals. However for now, I make do with what now we have. It’s the one possibility I’ve.
