Not really much to say that you don’t get from this picture:
– it’s a Samsung set
– I got it for a steal (with an extra 10% off Energy Star stuff right now)
– the washer is Energy Star & qualifies for the full $150.00 back, and I”ll be pumping that rebate out to ’em toot-sweet.
The major selling point for me? The wee little door at the bottom of the washer. You flip that puppy open, and you can get to a hose that drains out water after a cycle, as well as the lint tube. (Who knew washers had lint tubes? Apparently I was a huge fire hazard when I was renting. Huge.)
They’re delivering it in a week to a week and a half. Why the wait, with their usual next-day shipping? Because this is “their most popular set” and it’s on back-order. The Appliance Guy filled me in on that after I bought it (he said he couldn’t really say that beforehand, couldn’t sway my decision). Plus? Appliance Guy #2 said he & his wife have had a Samsung for 3 years and they’ve had no problems with it, even though they have 4 kids so laundry’s a constant thing in their ‘hood.
Looking forward to the install. I’ll feel like I”m in a “real” house then. Yay!
And yes, yes, a MaterWatch is forthcoming. With a bit of a surprise….
