Ever since we moved in our washing machine had been acting up. We finally decided to have it looked at and the sears man gave us a quote of 470 bucks!!! Yikes! We decided to then go looking for a new washer and dryer. We found one at the best price overall at Best Buy right by our house. We got the new h.e. front loaders. Superb performance! We love to do laundry now! I have now gone around the entire house to wash everything in site(kinda just for the fun of it). Our home is spotless, smells wonderful, and the new washer and dryer are to thank.
