$13.25 down the drain

Back at doing laundromat. 4 loads = 13.25.  Total PAIN!
Heard from the repair place the part we need is on back order -
I totally wouldn't be here today except oldest child needed sports uniform washed for Saturday and the practice uniform was dirty too - so, rather than just drive down for a load of sports gear I brought all we had - which is amazing since there are only 4 of us and it's only been 3.5 days since I last did laundry.  Towels can be reused, pants can be reworn. Undies & socks - nope!  Still it's a lot o'washin!


  1. Just out of curiosity, are you keeping trak of how much the part is, how much you are spending on the laundromat, including buying bleach there along w/ any other extra expenses that have crept us as the old washer is broken? t what point would it be better to buy a new one?

  2. I am keeping track of how much it's cost so far.
    $45 in washing fees and $1 in bleach. I did the only white load so far.
    I dry the stuff at home.

  3. how much is the back ordered replacement part costing you?

  4. About $350. Hubby says it worth it. It was $1K for the machine when we got it 5 years ago. Looked at lowes for another Monday. Found a big one top loader for about $700. We'll see.....
