Gwen Repairs & Cleans Her Machine INTRO
 

Gwen dishes her personal washing machine experiences and why she thinks newer isn’t necessarily better…

Just as I thought my laundering wishes had been fulfilled, the newer washer/dryer (a stack unit) managed to run without getting anything wet! A few hundred dollars later for a new motor and to my unpleasant surprise, it still didn’t work! I settled for keeping these non-functioning machines as decorative pieces in my hallway. After all, who doesn’t appreciate these beautiful machines!

Oh, the Toilette! INTRO
