I started another load of laundry in the new machine, just before I went outside for my evening rounds.
This is what I found when I came back.
I was wondering which of the cats would be first to discover the window!
Also, there are two things that really stand out about this new machine.
The first is, what a huge difference not having an agitator makes on how much can be put into the machine! The drum itself is only slightly bigger than the old one, but a full laundry basket barely filled it half way. I actually had to add more to the first load to help keep it balanced. According to the manual, the “fill line” is the top of the drum, right under the lip of the opening. I don’t think our dryer can even hold that much, and it’s a large dryer!
The second thing is, how much quieter this machine is!! What a difference!
The test run on the machine was finishing when the girls came into the room. Just in time for us all to hear the little victory music the machine plays, to let you know it’s finished! Too funny! The tones it make when it’s powered on and off are hilarious, too. None of us expected it to be so musical. 😉
Having the old machine break down wasn’t fun, and it put a major dent in our savings, but I’m glad we got this machine. The technology has really improved! Granted, I could do without the fancy electronics; the more there is, the more there is to break down! But the mechanical function of it is quite the advancement.
Who knew laundry could be so much fun?
At least for now..

LOL, the laundry room is small here and off limits to the kitties. Our new Samsung washer and dryer are much larger capacity and quieter than the old ones also. ALMOST makes me not mind the movers destroying ours. The old washer sounded like a jet turbine when it was on spin cycle.
The only down side is that the washer and dryer take longer to do a load vs the older machines.

I never really paid attention to how long loads took with the old machine, so I don’t know if there’s a difference for a normal load (though the “heavy duty” setting is 2 hours!). I did find I have to climb onto the step to be able to reach the bottom! 😀
