You are super excited about buying new appliances!
This weekend we got a new washer and dryer we have had our eye on for awhile. After a lot of careful research (online and asking around) we decided that Bosh was a good and trustworthy brand. They were however slightly more expensive than what we had in mind. So since our current washer and dryer were hanging in there we decided to wait a little longer, save a little more, and watch for sales. Over the Easter weekend I visited the beautiful pair again and to my excitement they were on sale, but they were still a bit above our ideal price range. Then early last week our dryer quit working..... so the choice was made for us. We went to Sears and again to my surprise they were even more on sale (and in our ideal price range)!
Scarlet is having the hardest time adjusting to the new washer and dryer. She used to like to follow me into the laundry room and watch me load the washer from her perch on top of the water heater. Now she got onto the hot water heater but was confused about the sounds the new washer made and was afraid to use it to get back down.
"What is that sound?!"
She needed some help getting down as she refused to use the washer as a step... she now watches it from the edge of the kitchen, then at the refrigerator, and she did finally make her way back into the laundry room with some coaxing from me, where she watched the clothes spin round and round.
So far I love the washer and dryer a bit more than Scarlet. It is easy to use, has plenty of settings, is very quiet.... it does beep whenever it is finished. And if you don't respond, a few minutes later it beeps again... and again until you open the door or turn the knob to off. But in a way that is good... not as likely to have one of those "I forgot to switch the laundry over" moments.
