Once upon a time I bought a brand new washing machine. Just like the one my friend had at her house. No more Laundromats for me!
And, it was clean.
The salesman at Sears tried to sell me something else, anything else, "This one has these talents. This one is younger..." but I refused. I stayed loyal and true; I got a replica, one just like my friend's, with matching dryer. They were on sale to boot, so you can image my pleasure when the adoption came through and I got to bring them home.
I knew I'd made the right choice. Never a problem. In fact, when the time came for a checkup, the maintenance man was shocked at how healthy my Washer and Dryer were. Dryer was in especially good shape. It was noticeable that I am one of those people who scrub the dryer filter clean after each load. There would be no fires started in my baby. No sir.
Now you would think, reading this, that there are no issues to be had with such perfect appliances and such a perfect caretaker. But, I'm sorry...
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW IN THE HECK A WASHING MACHINE CAN GET DIRTY INSIDE THE RIM WHEN IT'S WHOLE PURPOSE IS TO CLEAN THINGS AND THE LID IS NEVER LEFT OPEN?!!!!!
Please tell me you have issues, that I'm not the only one with a dirty washing machine.
This, my friends, is my washing machine issue. I cringe at the thought that I actually have to clean it, but I do. There is a tub of Lysol wipes on the folding table beside Washer. And every fifth load is a bleach load to keep her extra clean and smelling fresh.
