washer and dryer
this week marked a highlight in our home renovations. we have (after many months maybe even years of relentless discussion of what kind of apparatus to wash and dry our clothes with) have finally purchased a new washer and dryer. we went with the LG brand, front loading, high efficiency WM2016CW and DLE2516W models. For the lay person that is the model number for cheap and basic. we (as blogged about on this very blog site) have been creating a laundry room in which to house the WM2016CW and DLE2516W, This room is located on the second floor of our house and through research have learned that belt driven washers do not work very well for upstairs applications. The LG models have a drive shaft meaning no belts drive the washer. These are better for upstairs applications so we were sold... price and style did also influence our choice. So we now are the proud owners of a washer and a dryer in which we can now not only wash our unmentionables but yes we can dry them... hip hip hooray!! one note too mention the floor in the room may need to be changed as LG claims slight vibrations may be a problem... "If the floor is not solid, your washer will vibrate. You will hear and feel the vibration throughout you house." We are giving it time before we pour a concrete second floor in the house.
