I tell myself as I rewash the same load of laundry for the third fucking time because I can’t remember to switch the clothes over 🙄
A few years ago I lived in a 3 unit complex. I lived on the first floor with my roommate. We had new neighbor move into the second who I will refer to as "Andy".
The day I met her, her husband knocked on my door. He told me Andy was in the basement and she wanted to talk to me. I thought, "ok, that's weird", so I go to the basement and see Andy sitting on her ass with a toothbrush scrubbing our clothes dryer. She looks fucking livid and starts screaming at me about how filthy the dryer was and that it was covered in oil. What she didn't know was that my roommate works operating machinery for a military gun manufacturer, that's his washer and dryer. I patiently let her finish this 10 minute rant then say, "Well... first of all, that's not your dryer- its ours and we can do whatever we want with it. Second, we don't have to let you use it if we don't want to. She apologized and I went back to my unit.
That wasn't the end of it. For months after she continued to be a monster and pos... keep reading on reddit ➡

Background: I work for a large research company washing lab glassware in one of several buildings. Most of the buildings have these nice washers that let us fit a fair amount of stuff and allow us to mix washes (can wash small stuff like stir bars/bottlecaps/stoppers and big stuff like 2L glass bottles in the same wash, instead of all big stuff or all small or medium.) Problem is, the washers are WAY over engineered, so at the slightest problem they will shut off and show an error. If you get an error, you are supposed to submit a maintenance request detailing what the error was, and when it occured, so a technician can come out and fix it, but usually the problem is solved by turning the washer off and on again, entering a code and restarting it (it can get annoying because each wash takes an hour and a half, but you can't rush them).
Set up: The building I'm currently in has 2 washers but the water pressure in this particular building is terrib... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m not referring to opening up the coin deposit box of the laundry machines, rather just the control panel that allows you to start the cycle.
UPDATE: Ended up writing a formal letter to the company requesting compensation, company responded and agreed to pay in full for all of our repairs. We never had to go to small claims, although we did file complaints with the BBB. As of Wednesday, 7/31, everything's resolved. I hope, ha. Thanks Reddit for your help!
I bought my southern CA house back in 2016, knowing the 1950s era pipes would need to be replaced soon. Much to my dismay, they kicked the bucket three days after I moved in. Desperate, I called a plumber (who came recommended by a friend of mine, another new homeowner...and also, as I realize now, an idiot.) Anyway, at the time, plumber shows up, replaces my cast iron pipes, and charges me about $8k. Expensive, but at least I'm getting them fixed properly. Right??
Fast forward to this year. A smell starts brewing from somewhere in my kitchen plumbing. Thinking it's the dishwasher, I replace the old appliance and hire a different plumber to install it and check on my... keep reading on reddit ➡
My lawn is extremely compacted. I can barely drive a screw driver in the sandy ground, it has been neglected for 40 years. Never aerated. No surprise, its not a happy lawn. These past 2 years I tried my best to revive it, scarifying, reseeding, watering and fertilizing. It looked fine for a few months, then died and got taken over by weeds again.
I wanted to rent a professional aerator, but due to covid, its currently difficult and expensive (cant pick it up, have to pay for delivery and pick up).
I dont believe those rolling aerators will make much of a difference, so I tried a manual aerator (something like this ). jumping on it with my 100 Kg wouldnt drive it in.
I tried drilling holes with a power drill. That actually kinda works, but kills my back. I contemplated making something like an "ae... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m an exjw and I know people want to sound cool making fun of JW people with their “window washing” businesses and other self owned businesses. But I’m sick of people acting like those people are pieces of shit. Trying to validate yourselves trying to sound cool. Not all JWs are losers. They do what they can in their brainwashed circumstance even to their own detriment sometimes. But have some fucking compassion. Goddamn. We can talk about beliefs and the GB and policies all we want but leave these other struggling JWs alone with your fucking wanna be “cool rebel” shit when it’s not even called for. Trying to build your low ego. Go fuck yourself. I’m sick of this negativity some people post in here.
Hi, there seems to be a lot of pressure washing pros here so I thought I'd ask.
Paired with a 15inch surface cleaner? Or do you think I should for out the extra thousands for a higher gpm model?
I've been looking into this as I have a really small space and some reviews are horrible and others are great. I've read through the instruction manuals and realize there are some finicky things like the dry cycle can only handle half the size the wash cycle can and that would be something I could work with. What are your experiences?
TL;DR Dishwashers do the dirty work. No one else in the restaurant wants their job and they are often disgusted by them. This, along with the isolation of their position, makes them the most under appreciated and most scapegoated worker in a restaurant
Dishwashers are the lowest men on the totem pole. While everyone else looks down on them, dishwashers are the people holding everyone up. For chefs, dishwashers keep them happy by organizing their stuff and preparing it for use. For servers, they clean up the disgusting messes customers leave behind and make sure every plate, piece of silverware, and cup are impeccably clean.
If things are not kept impeccably clean, cooks and servers will spot it and blame the dishwasher. This leans that when bigger things go wrong, it becomes easier for servers and cooks to find common ground and despise the dishwasher/s instead of helping them.
Due to the servers tips and cooks higher pay, dishwashers are also the lowest paid restaurant workers.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Like this and this. We bought a house that came with W/D. The dryer is old and gotsta go, but the washer is fine. I checked, and they no longer make the matching dryer version, so we're just going to get a different front-load washer.
Right now the W/D are next to each other but we want them to stack. Thoughts on the sturdiness/safety of building a separating shelf?
**edit fixed the link!
EDIT: wow folks, I have a list of six or seven people who would be great candidates to get the washer and dryer, I’m working through the request in the order I got them and I wish I had a washer and dryer to give every single one of you. I really wasn’t expecting people to reach out in the way they did and I appreciate the accolades! but I really just want to get rid of this washer and dryer and pay it forward a little bit and help out someone who is struggling. I’m definitely not a hero or a legend or anything like that just someone who is fortune enough to be able to extend some help to another person in need. Be well folks, take care of each other and keep it up with your mask wearing and your social distancing the tide is going to turn and things are going to get better. ALSO PLEASE VOTE! Luv u Avl!

Let say the scenario is that you do 2 loads of laundry a week. Each load of laundry detergent cost you about .40¢.
Hi all! Sorry if there is already a post about this but I was hoping for any recommendations on a washer (top loading) dryer (electric) set?
My parent's dryer just gave out after ~15 years and I'm looking to buy them a new pair. I am not the most well versed in this area so I'm not really sure how to evaluate what's the best option. Best Buy has a sale on a Samsung set ($650 each) which has great reviews on the Best Buy website but so-so reviews on other websites. They certainly don't need all the bells and whistles like wifi connectivity but I want to get them something with the new features and that is reliable.
Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated, thanks in advance!
Edit: thank you all so much for the advice! I'll definitely look into Maytag or Speed Queen, seems like the most people are happy with either of those
Buying a house and we measured the laundry closet to see what size washer/dryer would could get. The depth of the closet is 31". There is also a gas pipe which extrudes 4.5" from the wall, so the depth is more like 26.5". This doesn't seem deep enough for most any standard dryers. Found some compact ones that were 26" but even that would only leave .5" not enough for vent (?).
But then we see a picture of the room before renovating and you can see they pulled an old washer dryer out of there. We aren't sure how this was possible. Is it magic or an optical illusion or is there some explanation of how it fit in there? One guess I had was if the back of the dryer were hollow and the lines recessed maybe a 30" dryer could fit in a 31" space? Maybe that gas pipe wasn't there before?
Also a more important question is how are we going to get a dryer in this space and be able to shut the doors? Our agent said just hang a sheet :( :( :( If the gas pipe and vent were recessed i... keep reading on reddit ➡
First off if there is a better community for this question I’m down for recommendations.
My wife and I recently sold our home and purchased a new one. The sale of our old house ended up including our washer and dryer which tbh I was thrilled with.
About 2 years ago we achieved a middle class America dream of purchasing a digital high efficiency washing machine. It has been terrible. We already had to have the unit repaired and don’t even think of trying to wash anything bulky.
It’s come time to purchase a replacement set for the new house and I want to make a responsible purchase. Nothing fancy. I put laundry in it gets washed then dried and I want it to do that maintenance free for the next 10+ years. What do I buy?
Real quick let me point out that she’s renting a town home and part of the payment is for the people to come fix stuff that breaks. The employees called her and said “We refuse to come to your house because your a nurse and we will get COVID”. So now we probably going to have to buy a new washer and dryer.
Good afternoon everyone! I come here every once in a while to see what kind of great ideas everyone has (thanks for the vornado fan idea) it seems my dish washer has possibly washed its last dish. So I came to the experts. Is it just time to wash dishes by hand? I see the dishwasher as a luxury not necessarily a necessity. Any input welcomed. Thanks everyone.
