After finally swallowing the painful truth of an extended one-year warranty $319.95, we scheduled the repairman to come out.
He came out today and declared it dead.
They're going to completely overhaul our washer for nearly $900. And it's all covered under our warranty we bought last week. SO glad we paid the $319.95.
But now I'm stuck taking loads of laundry to the laundromat at $1.50 a load (just to wash) until June 15, when he's scheduled to return with the ordered parts and the extra helping hands.
Tonight, two hours after bedtime (hey, it's the last day of school) I took the three oldest kids on a pajama bedtime ride to the laundromat.
- They learned what a top-loader washer is,
- how to put quarters in the machine,
- how much detergent to add,
- and how to loosely add the clothes.
Right now my dryer is tumbling and there are four more loads lined up to dry.
