so our dryer was on the verge of dying now for almost a year - my husband has been keeping it going by shoving a sock up in the drum where the insulation strip fell out -- this thing makes the most horrid noise unless that damn sock is shoved up there just right - which seems only he can manage... but he has kept on manuvering it to make the dryer last --- well last night it had its last tumble -- it was full of wet clothes and the washer full too of wet clothes and it just said nope aint gunna do it --- so we literally went to Lowe's bargained for a floor model that we wanted instead of waiting a week for delivery - hello wet clothes on deck --- we hauled her home - unhooked - rehooked and whala! New dryer in exactly an hour!!!!!!!!!! I felt like the appliance couple rock stars!!!!!!! I remember my dad and step-mom almost filing divorce papers the last time they bought a major appliance hehehehehe --- do you and your S/O just have kick ass chemistry when it comes to handling stuff around the house or do you duke it out????
