washer and dryer acquired
I purchased a used washer/dryer set. On a recommendation I went to Chester's Discount Appliances. This is a local place in Tampa Florida and is as old-school as you can get as far as a shop is concerned. There is no showroom and no people in company uniforms. None o' that. Just a big purple (yes purple) warehouse with rows and rows of used appliances.
I purchased a Whirlpool W/D set for $239. The price included tax, delivery and setup; it was delivered less than an hour after purchase.
After performing a test wash, the only thing wrong with the washer is that the final spin won't come on unless I click the button off then on again. Is this a big deal? Not really. I know how to get around it and am still able to get the laundry done. I'll call Chester's up on Tuesday to see if there's anything they can do about it. They guarantee all products sold for 30 days so hopefully this is something relatively easy to fix. And if not I'll just deal with it.
Having my own W/D set is a big deal for the following reasons:
- I don't have to leave my apartment to do laundry.
- I can do laundry whenever it's convenient for me.
- I don't have to iron (when you hang clothes straight out the dryer, that's a beautiful thing.)
- My clothes will last longer because I'm able to wash them the right way.
- I don't have to rely on friends or family just to have clean clothes.
Rock on. 🙂
