    Exclamation Oh man.... I have to go appliance shopping.

    Ok.... I recently bought a new attachment for the 2720, I'll keep you guessing as to what though.



    So according to Gizmo's rules I have to go buy a new vacuum cleaner....






    Well, we already have a good one. So my better half wants a new washing machine. She wants a top loader. She doesn't want to bend over to get the laundry out of a front loader. Anybody have any good suggestions?

    Does one not have to bend over and reach down to get laundry out of a top load? I must be doing something wrong.

    You do realize that washers and dryers always end up coming as a set, right? I mean, they offer to sell you just one but it turns out that's just a ruse to get you in the door...

    I mentioned that. Didn't change what she wants. Doesn't matter to me really anyway.

    I'm afraid of that too....

    What! Another set of forks sold? Do you have a set now and going to pull off a Gizmo2, putting the other set into storage?
    IMO, talk babycakes into a front loaded and get the added stand to raise it. I/we were sooooo apprehensive about front loaders, not anymore.
    BTW, washing machine/vacuum cleaner.............same thing.

    FWIW, I went through the W+D research and shopping a couple years ago when we moved the hookups upstairs to the main floor. The main knock I found on front loaders is: 1. Unless you leave the door open when not in use (naturally) they start to "aquire a rather bad odor, 2. Leaving the door open invites a ROPS-like possible shin and knee incursion and door mis-alignment AND (just what I found out) the doors will start to leak quite sooner than later.

    I bought a Sears "new High Efficiency" machine, which means bottom line it uses far less water, requires "HE" lo-suds detergent, costs more and will wind jeans legs into pretty tight knots.

    No agitator, it just jiggles the clothes somehow, but it does spin 'em nearly dry... To be put into the matching dryer which has to be switched on to get the drum light to come on w/door... It has 10 undetectable difference wash settings (Design engineer was ex-JD design man.)

    I only use the "Manual Timed Dry-Manual Temp" feature on the dryer as it takes the same time to dry anything on "Automatic"... 2 pairs of gotchies or 2 pair of work jeans... same drying time on "Auto" settings. No utility savings there! Yes, I did read both manuals!

    Put the front loader up on cinder blocks!!!! The new top loaders are designed to use less water now too, and will only fill 1/4 full on the rinse cycle. They will beat the dickens out of your clothing, and you'll be having to buy new clothes more often. I'm hearing the rinse cycle doesn't remove the soap well, and that you have to mix any fabric softener with 1L warm water separately, before adding it to the washer. I have a friend that does appliance repair. He says he never hears the end of the complaints, and there is nothing he can legally do, as they are "working" as they "should".
