I was doing laundry yesterday when I started hearing this high pitched buzz/squeek type of noise.

The machine was agitating, but had that high pitched noise.

I thought it was DH to begin with, but he said it was not him, and my son directed me to the washing machine.

:cringe:

It is like a guilty pleasure with a price tag.

I did not like our old washing machine at all. I purchased it second-hand about 4 or 5 years ago from a used appliance store for around $150. It did it's job just fine, but it didn't have a delicate cycle and just looked old. I have been waiting for it to die so that I can get a new one.

DH and I went shopping yesterday and found this beauty at Home Depot - it will turn out to be $402 (my budget was $500 max.) after hoses & tax. It won't be delivered until Friday so today I get to hoof it over to the laundromat and do a couple loads of laundry.

It got pretty good reviews too. I think it will be great. And the wonderful thing is that we didn't use the credit cards!!
:cool1: :cool1:
We used some of our tax refund money that we put into the savings account. Yay!!

Did you check the site above for rebates to replace appliances with energy-efficient models? WA has a rebate for washing machines!
