End of an Era
That washer/drier set saw us through a 2 year house rental in Ocean Springs, 4 years in a mobile home park in Gautier, then the move to George County which was 5 more years in the mobile home and then 10 in the house we built. About 2 years ago we had to replace the washer. Then one day last week, we noticed that the drier wasn't heating. It still tumbled and timer worked: it just wouldn't heat, so the clothes didn't dry.
We went to Lowe's yesterday to look at replacements. When we informed the salesman that we were replacing a 20 year old machine, he told us he wished he could promise that a new one would last just as long, but it probably wouldn't.
I'm hoping our drier history holds out, because I didn't purchase the extended warranty.
