Out With the Old, In With the New

Way back  at the end of June, our washing machine started making funny noises. I called up our friendly appliance repair guy (my uncle who lives across the country) who diagnosed it with a transmission going out. That's an expensive repair to make on a machine that's 14 years old and seen way more use than your average washing machine.

Good-bye, trusty old Whirlpool!

We ended up deciding to buy a Speed Queen for a replacement. Unfortunately, Speed Queen orders are significantly backed up because their demand outweighs the factory output. Our local dealer was out of stock, so we had to wait.

And wait.

And wait.

Around three weeks and several (expensive!) laundromat visits later, our new machine arrived. Yesterday we welcomed into our home this beauty.

Welcome home, Speed Queen. Live long and prosper.

So far, after three loads of clothes, we're satisfied. Ask me in 10 years for an update.
