Murphy Is Coming for a Visit 🙄

March 2nd, 2019 at 01:12 pm

Murphy is knocking at my door, I know he’ll be entering soon. The washing machine is on its way out. Thank goodness I started the house fund but I hate to see money spent on a washing machine.

I know of a scratch n dent place my dad use to go to, so Monday I’ll check them out. If it’s more than a $100, I’ll simply buy a new one. I’m annoyed but not upset.

    Sorry about the inconvenience, but just think that a couple of years ago you might have thought about whipping out the plastic to pay for a new one. I have been in the same situation. This is just a bump in the road.

    If this is a pre-2010 Whirlpool or Kenmore, it might be better to spend the money to repair the washer. Those machines were better made and easier to repair. No electronics to fail, just simple mechanical stuff. YouTube is your friend here. Even if you decide not to do the work yourself, you can determine the problem and how easy it would be to fix.

    Do you know what the problem is? Is it something you could repair or would be less costly to have a repairman fix? We fixed our dryer for the cost of a $30 part. Great idea to check scratch and dent.

    We used YouTube to figure out how to take it apart. Ours are MayTag. I had a repairman say they don't make the new ones as good as the old. I think our set is nearly 20 years old!!

    Also it may stay in 'on its way out' status for a while. No sense in replacing until you have to.

    That's our situation. The washer needs an expensive part to prevent a little leak and I'm not willing to put any more money into it. So we use a dirty towel on the floor to absorb the drip during each load. and we can only use the shortest cycle. Now the dryer - also very used - is making an odd noise, but it's still drying fine. This has been going on for several months so who knows how much more use we'll get without spending anything.

    Thanks everyone. It’s not draining and I didn’t even think about YouTube. Watched a few videos and it says there maybe a blockage

    Frugal people at least investigate DIY first. Not always possible, but it's a good first step that can save hundreds of dollars.

    And a blockage could be fixed by an appliance repair person cheaper, usually, than buying a new unit. Congrats on finding another possible solution.

    What a pain, but at least you have a plan. A few years ago, you wouldn't have, right?

    I’ve desired to write something similar to this on my webpage and this has given me an idea. Cheers.
