Washing machine blows!Posted: November 7, 2010
After more than 20 years, the washing machine decides to jump too high! Something separated in there and now it leaks all over the floor! Yay! It’s definitely not the end of the world and it’s only water, but it didn’t make for fun times for me, especially since I was already running on lack of sleep AND it was a low hormone day! Nothing got water damaged except for my 40 pound box of cat litter and only the bottom of the box.
Decision is split among the house as to what to do next. I say fix it. It’s lasted this long without any problems whatsoever, so it can’t be anything other than replacement parts we need to invest in, which would cost way less than a brand new machine. The other camp says buy a new one. This one is over 20 years old and the headache of trying to fix it is more than they are willing to deal with.
I don’t think we can really afford a new machine. If the other camp really wants to get a new one, I’m trying to persuade to get a good used one. No need to go the retail route.
