I’ve been using this washing machine for six years. We inherited it when we moved into our house. And I’ve been complaining about how I hate it for all six years. It stinks in summer when we hit those 3 really hot and humid weeks. It’s more efficient, so it doesn’t fill with as much water. The top locks after the cycle starts, making it a pain to add that forgotten item of clothing. Big things, and all the little things, drive me crazy in regards to this washing machine.
Then, suddenly, this week I randomly read through all the cycle settings again. “Bulky Items” caught my attention. How have I never seen that? What does it do differently? I decided to give it a try with some towels, choosing to pause it halfway through the cycle and wait the exorbitant amount of time it takes to unlock the lid and provide access to the interior.
Lo and behold - a drum FULL of water. As in, almost to the top. This. This is what I have been missing. For six stinking years!
I know at some point as a new homeowner I read through all the options of the washing machine. Clearly I was overwhelmed with learning all the “new” that came with purchasing our first home. How I never revisited such an obvious label I have no idea.
I think I’ll let just part of my grudge toward this washing machine go. Perhaps there’s something else I have been missing...
