New washer and dryer---put to the test!
My new washer and dryer were finally delivered today! 5 days later than what I was told last week, but 2 days before the "best-case scenario" I was told when I ordered them 2 weekends ago. It all works out, and the slight delay gave me a chance to learn more about them and become more adjusted to the "idea of the change.
They were delivered and hooked up and ready to use by 3:30 this afternoon. 4 hours later and I'm on my 5th load on laundry. So far, they seem to be working just fine. Yay! And I purposely have done different kinds of loads of different sizes: a medium sized load of towels (one was a "work towel" that was VERY soiled and it came out spotless,) a medium load of light colors, a bigger load of dark colors, two blankets, and right now I'm washing my heavy jacket.
Everything has come out looking great, no unusual smells, the machines are quiet and don't dance across the room, and I'm using 1/2 the detergent because they are water-savers.
All of my worry about this big change and ordering such fancy models and I have a good feeling that everything will work just fine. Whew!
P.S. I did discover the downside of doing so many loads in one afternoon though--I have to put them all away!
