But the plastic WILL go out after a few years and you will have to take apart the back of the dryer and replace the part. Buy 3 of them and rat hole them when you buy the washer.. Just go to the washer and refrigeration place and get the part for the Dryer so you are ready when it starts squeaking.
Yeah this sucker, when you select it, spins at close to 1300rpm, then it slows down then tosses the clothes back and forth about 6 times to fluff them before it stops.
What part chief??
Do I need to dig out the Whirlpool schematic and find what looks like a bearing? Oh, I did spring for the pedestals. Min and I were totally against them at first then I saw the set on the floor at Costco and I was like, no way am I bending down that far to do wash every time!
I did the first load of clothes today. The wash was about 40 minutes and in our old dryer it would have taken close to 90 minutes to dry. This one did it in 35 and they're softer and cleaner than ever. Hey not only do they use less water & energy but the soap is 1/3 and Clorox2 is 1/2! Big savings everywhere, plus we'll put in for the tax refund but I think it's only about $40- because there's no such thing as an energy star dryer.

Ok, some battles were won today and some were lost.
The good thing was my friend/ handyman Chris came along!
I lost on the front door. I hate the windows in the door except the ones just in a fan at the top. She got the window in the door, it's an energy star product, it's triple pane safety glass which is why I lost, it can't be broken, only cracked. Each pane is almost 1/2" thick!
However, she wanted the door that was $470-, it only came in Cherry, no way, we don't do dark colors. So, the door / windows in white that is still beautiful was only $329-! This is most relevant because I get to buy new power tools. Found a nice DeWalt with Lithium-ion battery for $200-. Have to go back to pick it up though.
Anyone interested in a Kawasaki cordless drill/ driver?
Now, about the computer room/ office/ my cave next to the Garage. This is where Chris comes in he and I both said it's a waste to put fluffy carpet under plastic sheet chair mats. No long pile carpet! Tight twisted tuck "office carpet" but colorful and with a medium pad and a 25 year warranty! Hoorah! BTW, half the price of the other carpet.
Yep Boss you nailed it, the paint will be a Taupe Green
but lightened up a few shades cause that window never sees the sun.
Major hurdles overcome today, we got carpet set up, we got a couple of paint sample colors made up to spread on the walls and see how they look. We are NOT
moving the Kitchen wall!!! We do have to rip out a bunch of tile though and the idiots that did it went >subfloor >quickset >tile. Might be buying some floor sheets by the time we get the stuff up.
Man!! She gave in on My Oven!! I get the one I want, it's this but in Black: http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-...atalogId=10053
We got 4 out of 5 doors (one on order), we got carpet arranged. Oh, installation $97- for the whole house
as long as you take out the old stuff and clean the floor (already done). Chris has to lay down Oil based Killz because there's cat Pee everywhere.
Ceiling paint, rollers, brushes, masking tape, masking paper, shims, screws, 4X4's for extra supports, sheet plastic, crack filler, everything except the actual paint for the walls.
Oh!!! Got a sweet 26ft ladder that goes straight, A frame, Scaffold, branched over steps or slopes! Only $149-! $80- off!
Mindy got us 10% off everything for getting a Home Depot card, I got 10% off for being a Disabled Vet! Around $300- off just for those things.
The big day is Tuesday
, 3 HVAC companies coming to quote, I'll probably get Rheem no matter the cost.
Hopefully I'll get the Glass company out to estimate the repair and UV sheeting. Tony the Tile Guy (my neighbor, Master Craftsman) will be out after work to tell us what we need to put in the handicap Master Bath with roll in shower. Oh man, Mindy has to pick out a tile type/ color.
I think I'm not getting tankless water heater, found out the maintence counters the energy savings.

time to up load some pictures and such.
have a good night every one.
check my work log tomorrow and you will see some pictures from 35,000 feet and Colorado. none from Wyoming yet as it got too dark.
Laramie!! Isn't that where they make the cigarettes for The Simpsons?? Pics from 35,000ft? What can you see? I'm thinking only trees or lights. All I ever got to see was cloud cover across the Atlantic. I did get to see the lakes around the Sierras though, nice wide circle the pilot had to make because it was snowing.
Hope you get to have fun up there!! It's nothing like Maine.
Good Night Guys!! Hope to be around a few hours on Monday.
OMG! Almost forgot. I can measure it but it would be so much easier if somone can tell me what size sheet I need for the Scout window. Also, 3mm or 4mm?
I'll probably use screws so if I can use 4MM that'd be easier on me. I'm getting 4 sheets in case I mess up on the etching, it has been about 10 years now. Last thing I did was a waterbed oval mirror with roses. Edited by BriSleep - 7/3/10 at 11:10pm
