  1. Question and Answer
    Do you have trouble with your washer viberating really bad? We have had our LG front load washer for three years now and it has always viberated really bad but we just bought the pedastels to go under it and it seems to be worse.

    At the end of the final spin cycle, there's still water left in the drum that comes pouring out when I open the door. I looked up the owner's manual online and I tried cleaning drain pump, but it's empty. I checked the drain hose and there aren't any kinks. I'd prefer to not go through the...
  3. Question and Answer
    Hi all! I thought my washing machine broke last week (terrible burned smell coming from it) - turns out that it was the cord, not the washer itself. Unfortunately I panicked and went out and bought myself a new front-load washer...on credit. I'm so ashamed. Now that I know my topload is NOT...

    I've complained about it before. It's about three years old and a GE. I've had it serviced once in the first year when it was under warranty with the same problem I always have with it. It doesn't get my clothes clean no matter the cycle and my clothes always smell like mold. This is what we...
  5. 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 am putting a new roof on my house this month so it will be a little while. I guess it's time to start a fund for it just like we...
  6. Question and Answer
    I am having a hard time figuring this out and I guess it does depend on how dirty your clothes are. So I usually use the 'regular' cycle for clothes and it's like 90 minutes long and the speed cycle is like 40 minutes. I want to save more energy and if the front loader cleans just as well on...

    I went and looked at front load washer tonight. There were lots of LG's. Is that a really good brand. It is between a LG and a Maytag Epic. Which would be the best bang for the buck?
  12. Utilities
    did you see a drastic drop in your water or electric bill after you switched to a front load from a top load washer? How much did you save a month? We are looking into maybe getting a set of front load machines if we can justify it with the savings. We have a family of 5, so I wash alot of...

    I haven't had a wreath up since Christmas.   I keep thinking that I need to get a Spring wreath done (the old one is a mess and needs redone), but I haven't done it yet.  Right now, my front door is bare. What's on your front door?

    Ours is made of cement blocks right now. This spring we plan on changing it to flat rocks. I've never been fond of cement blocks,however thats what was here when we bought the house.

    Our next washing machine will be front loading. They save on water and are way more energy efficient.
