Water keeps leaking when i use the washing machine. I just finished a load of diaper laundry despite the leak, the whole floor os soaked, and now baby is in disposables :( i am so disappointed. I have laundry to do for 6 people, plus i hate hate hate disposables! Dh and i share the van, plus i dont want to be stuck at the laundry mat with 4 kids! Grrrr. Hopefully we can find one soon! This is so annoying!

Oh that sucks! Mine is broken too. The motor went bad in it a few weeks ago. It will still spin and you can rinse with it as long as you don't walk away from it BC it will overflow if you do ha ha! I built my own washboard and have been using it in the bathtub but it takes more time for sure. But I refuse to go to the laundromat! The last time I used one the lady that worked there came out of the bathroom before she pulled her pants up and then her husband came in and started smoking pot right there inside the building! Im not judgmental at all about what people do on their own time but my kids were in there for goodness sake!!

Hey that looks nifty! And cheaper than a washing machine! Might save my back some too. Im going to see if I can figure out how to post a picture of my washboard. I made it all by myself.
