  1. Question and Answer
    Don't ask me how this happened, but somehow a fork ran through our washing machine and when it reached our dryer it made a hole in the filter screen (where the lint collects) Has anyone repaired or replaced one of these? Our dryer is about 15 years old, a Maytag fwiw. What did you use to...

    via Craig's List a set of Askos. The Asko units were < 1/2 what we'd budgeted and are a "trial balloon" to see if we can manage with the newer, smaller machines, or if we have to get the new monster machines, which don't fit our space well. The fellow we got them from had us go away and come...

    One of my favorite tips is how to cut drying time in half when drying laundry in the dryer...and it absolutely works. Put a clean dry lint free bath towel into each load of drying laundry. Its amazing to me the difference in drying time for the clothes. It literally cuts the drying time in half...
  4. Question and Answer
    I often will delay ironing until I have a huge pile of it, so is if I have enough for a full dryer load, which is cheaper: ironing for over an hour or putting it in the dryer for 20 min? I have a dryer that's only a few years old, so it's pretty energy efficient.

    I've been thinking about making one for my dryer. I found this link, but I'm unsure. I think I would like to make it a little higher so there is absolutely no stooping, just reach in and grab, but I wonder how that would change things? I'm not exactly handy this way. Washing Machine and Dryer...

    I know that we need the rain...but I really hate having to use the dryer- especially in the summer when we already have to use the AC.I cringe at the thought of a higher electric bill:(

    I used to use Foil balls in dryer. I kind of got out of it, thought about trying it again! It seemed to help fluff my clothes, and it is touted on the internet to take care of static cling. The balls also seemed like they would also help dry stuff faster, because the balls got really really...

    One of the first things I bought as an adult was a used Dryer from a good friend of mine about 10 years ago. It was a very old Sears Kenmore and was Alvacado green. The dryer meant a great deal to me. Not sure the fact that it was a dryer of course, but the fact that it was my first official...

    Our dryer finally gave up the ghost last night. DH spent last evening doing internet research on dryers. We talked it over and decided that we'd see about getting a new Maytag dryer. We went to a big-box appliance store, and we were just about to place the order for a Maytag Brava...

  11. Question and Answer
    Ok....I've only been raised using a gas dryer. Until this past weekend the pilot finally burnt out on it. We had it changed and fixed before we moved to our current home 10 yrs ago. The dryer is now 40 yrs old. My dad and I are going to start looking at new dryers to replace this one we think...
  12. Question and Answer
    Good Morning, All! I am looking at my everyday tasks and trying to become more energy/cost efficient in my ways. Even though I only have a household of two (my husband and I), we have to run the dishwasher about every 2 -3 days. I honestly do not have any idea how energy efficient our...

    Anyone tried these yet? I'm curious to see how these work vs the sheets, for those of you who use them.
  14. Laundry
    Has anyone here ever tried or used them? I got a set of balls (har-har) for Christmas and I decided to test them out tonight in the one load that I actually put in the dyer. As it stands, I may as well have put a few pairs of running shoes in there, its that noisy. Is this normal? What...

    I'm kind of at a loss on this one and I'm trying to figure out what to do... Our dryer broke about six weeks ago. Since then we have been hanging laundry out to dry. It is getting colder outside and rainy and windy and overall it just isn't working to get the clothes dry. The dryer itself...
  19. Question and Answer
    I am looking for some advice on a new washer and dryer. I really would like a front loading one. If you have one or were going to buy one, what kind would you get?

    I was doing laundry over the weekend as it is supposed to be less peak hours on weekend and even less after 9pm. As I was putting clothes in washer I looked up and noticed the plug in for the washer and dryer within reach. Does anyone unplug the washer and dryer when not using them? Does...
