Hubby Bought A New Washing Machine

Our washing machine that served us for 10(ten) years had finally resigned last Saturday. Hubby went to the basement to do laundry(yes! my hubby does laundry, he is awesome!!) found out that the machine spinner wouldn't spin. We knew before and that we needed  a new one because this machine  had been giving us a lot of issues. If I remembered correctly, hubby got it from a friend and this machine was 10 years old when my he got it. It was a used one and  had been working so hard, beaten down, washing big loads of clothes. It wasn't energy efficient and didn't do a good job washing clothes anymore.

The spinner does not spin correctly. So we knew we needed a new one eventually but we were just putting off waiting for it to die . Actually, we didn't have money to buy a brand new, hubby wanted to get a brand new front loader washing machine and dryer. We will be needing about two thousand dollars for it. There's no way we can afford it, we have to put aside money for few months or a year in order to afford. I had suggested to him in the past to get a second hand for  now but he wasn't buying my idea. Finally, because of what had happened he decided to checked Kissinger  Appliance store in the nearby town if they have a used one for an affordable price but yet in good quality. 


So so glad he found a nice one for $312.00, a Kenmore Elite brand. It has a king size capacity perfect for my family because we dirty so many clothes. Although it is a top loader but it is way better than our old one. Kissinger delivered it to our house after few hours so I was able to use it tonight. I love our new washing machine.





I like that it has a lot of options that suits my laundry needs. It  has an energy saving option when it comes to the water temperature. I noticed that it alternates hot and cold water by 2(two seconds) I do not know the science behind it and how it could save me energy. I can also choose one or two rinse and different speed for washing.  What you see in the picture were the settings I used when I washed the clothes tonight. 





























Another feature is the bleach dispenser, my old washing machine does not have this option or maybe I don't remember seeing one. I seldom use bleach so I might not really  use this one. 




























Here is another cool thing I like from this new machine, see that hole on the spinner? That is the softener dispenser. I love it!!! I can just pour my softener in the beginning of the washing and walk away, it will do its job during rinsing Our old washing machine I couldn't walk away because I had to add the liquid softener at the last rinse because there was no place for me to leave the softener. I noticed that it used a lot of water too by rinsing so many times.





























Over all hubby and I think that we got a good deal and probably not gonna buy a brand new one until this one dies. I can't say anything bad about this machine, I was very satisfied for its performance and also Kissinger has a good customer service.

  1. Sounds like you got a good deal! I love that it has a softener dispenser. When mine dies (about time too), I would consider getting one like this. Thanks!

  3. That machine looks like it does everything you need. I have a front loader and i really love it. I don't know if it saves me money on washing but i like that it doesn't have an agitator in it. When it spins the clothes come out practically dried. I really love it. So when your in the market for a new machine try a front loader. It really gets your clothes clean.

  4. Looks like an awesome machine! Like, you, I actually love my washing machine, and my husband even makes fun of me when I go into the laundry room just to see it at work (we have a front-loader). I guess my little life is pretty limited!

  8. Great choice of washing machine. It's so nice to have a heavy duty one to help you with the chores. Ours broke down two years ago. But our landlord was so generous enough to buy a new one for us.
