I was needing a new washer really bad. My dryer was only a year old and working good but hubby insisted that we needed a matching set. I really, really wanted a front loader. I've wanted one for years. I love the fact that you can wash so many clothes in them at one time and that they are energy effecient. Its only supposed to cost $14.00 a year to run the washer. Hope thats true. It turns out that his boss had purchased these for an apartment that he owns and they were too big so he asked my husband if he wanted them. Since we are getting back a pretty good chunk of money from taxes we decided to get them. We got a good deal on them too!
I didn't think I would want them stacking. But it really does save the space especially in my little bitty laundry room. He even put me up some shelves and bought me a laundry sorter. The best part about these is my husband knows how to use them. I went to the grocery store yesterday and came home to him doing laundry. I nearly fell over, he had even washed the comforter and blankets off of our bed, because everything else was caught up. I hope the new doesn't wear out for him too soon. I could get used to a man doing laundry.
I really love these just wish they could fold the laundry and put it away too!
