  This one is only about 7 years old. 

Hope you can get it fixed.  My repair guy said they don't make appliances to last more than 7-ish years, so they can sell you a new one!  We fixed our washing machine several times, until the repair guy said it would be more expensive to fix than get a new one. But we got a new one that didn't have very many electronics, so hopefully it will last fairly long!




Very pretty!! Great job Carolyn.

Thanks for the info.  I hope that a belt is all it needs.  

The washer I had before this one, I had it for about 20 years before it crapped out.  Remember when I bought this new one, when I lived at the crooked condo?  haha  That's how long I have had this one.  This one has been moved twice now -- from condo to tiny apartment, then from tiny apartment to here.  I don't know if moving has much effect on them, unless they drop it or something.  haha  But I know it can't do them much good.  Anyway, I'll soon have a repairman check this one out, and like Judy said, maybe a belt is all it needs.  

Thanks,  I've been nervous about the size. I appreciate your comment.

While I was still in Oregon last year I told my friend, Anna, whom I made the quilt for, to go to a paint store and get me some paint chips of the colors she liked. Then when I got to Arizona and had picked out a pattern I took her paint chips to a fabric store and selected my fabric.  It has been a fun project . I'm glad to give it to her this week.

Oh noooooo JOnna!  I hope your machine did not hear our discussions!

hubby and I are going to check out the Speed Queen models tomorrow.  I am ever so glad we have time to check them out and plan and not make a speedy decision.

Lynne, it does look scarey, doesn't  it?   Those fires are all in very rural , heavily wooded areas.  To be sure, there are people living there but it's  not like being in the suburbs.

The smoke is the worst for us.  Air quality is horrible.   The sky is orange and looks very apocalyptic.
