The Washing Machine Is Dead

This is so depressing.

Our washing machine is done-for. We have one of those stackable deals that my parent's gave to us when they got a new washer/dryer set. As I write it's sitting down there in the laundry room, non-functional, filled with dirty laundry water that won't drain.

It's fairly old. I guess I'm just glad it lasted this long.

Of course it had to go out right before I could get caught up on laundry, and after we had spent sixty bucks to fix the dryer. And at the precise time when we really have no money to spare.

You may be thinking that we could just go to a laundromat for a while. But alas, we have no laundromats anywhere near us. We live in a rural mountain area, remember.

So, we're going to have to figure out a way to get a new washer/dryer set. Of course, I'd like to go top-of-the-line and get something like this:


Whirlpool Silver Washing Machine


GE Red Washing Machine

Aren't they pretty? But we don't have a very big laundry room, unfortunately. I love the red, but I can't quite justify spending that much extra on something that won't fit and won't be seen.

We just need a sturdy washer/dryer combo that's stackable. Preferably something that will last us another 20 years. I think we'll end up getting something like this:


Whirlpool Stacked Laundry Unit

Not exactly how I wanted to spend one thousand dollars, but what can you do?

just remember that at least at sears you can open a line of credit with them, and get no interest, no payments for x number of months. I did that when I bought mine, cause I didn't have the cash up front and paid a little off every month before my 6 month free financing was up!

bummer though, hopefully you can get a new one pretty quick!

that stinks! i'm sorry.....i think we might need a new fridge! blah! i would rather use that money on other stuff! haha!

Bummer! Those top of the line sets are so beautiful, but I'm with you...so much money! And to be honest, I really love stackables! I just think it's easier to switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer, and they take up so much less space!

Oh, I'm sorry! That is definitely no fun!

Things like that always seem to happen at the most inconvenient times, don't they?? Praying that you find something quickly that is affordable and long-lasting!

Oh no! I'm afraid our washer is on it's way out too. I went downstairs this week after doing a load and it smelled very "hot" down there. I'm going to wait to do another load until my hubby is home with me incase it starts smelling funny again!

Things always tear up at the WRONG time!! I hated to hear about your washing machine..but God will provide!! Like Kelley said..you could always go with a major store (like Lowes, Home Depot, or Sears) and get x months..zero financing. That helps out alot!!
