One more Honey do done!

Well, washing machine (15+ years old) and dryer (36 years old) decided to die this month, so they are unhooked and ready to be replaced with new Frigidaire machines tomorrow! I'd replaced the heating element in the dryer twice in the time we owned it, just can't complain at all on something that lasts that long. Got the dryer when I married my wife so there's a little emotional attachment there....to my wife!!

Re: One more Honey do done!

You did good with those. Don't expect the new ones to last that long. Too many circuit boards and fancy crappolla

Re: One more Honey do done!

The "honey do list" is NEVER done.

I have always tried to stay ahead of it by doing things I knew needed done before it became an issue. I haven't had a problem yet.

that being said washers, driers, and fridge's well.......................

Been driving Deeres since 1974, Dodges since 1984, and Davidsons since 2004. Love my wife and kids I'm a blessed man.

Re: One more Honey do done!

We had a set of Maytag's that went from Mason City, Iowa to San Antonio to Las Vegas uptimes to the Seattle area. We had that set for over 20 years before it finally died.

They had dents on both of them from all the moving but the mechanicals were great. the only thing was the transmission on the washer wore out and it was going to cost more then the entire machine was worth and the dryer had 3 elements, a blower and 4 belts over the years and it still worked but the wife wanted a newer matching set so we got a front loader Maytag set that the machines were made by Samsung and the washing machine had so many glitches we replaced it after 4 years with a new Speed Queen top loader 5 years ago and it was built like the old Maytags in that this thing is a tank and takes everything my wife and I throw into it and washes. We did keep the 2nd Maytag dryer as it does work well and still going today.

Re: One more Honey do done!

Always good to keep the Mrs. happy, Tim.

My wife's been bugging me about getting a new washer/dryer. The washer leaks and sometimes when she's standing barefoot in the puddle and turns the dryer on, she gets zapped. I gave her a heavy pair of rubber gloves to wear when she turns the dryer on now..................cross one off the Honey Do list

.....just call me Ellis

Folks say I'm lazy, drunk and stupid. Well, I got news for them......they're only 2/3 right.

They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel

Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread

Our washer and dryer are 17 years old and they are Sears Kenmore. We also bought an upright vacuum cleaner and a canister vacuum cleaner on the same night at Christmas time.

Re: One more Honey do done!

I have a set of Whirlpool, purchased early 90's.

I have put a heating element in the electric dryer and a valve and two agitator pieces in the washer set, 25 plus years.

She wishes I would quit fixing them!

We did buy a used Maytag set for backup, look new, $200.00.

Re: One more Honey do done!

Does it seem like appliances last longer when there's less people living in the house?

Re: One more Honey do done!

Well they are in and installed,level checked and ready for operation. Not sure why but my wife told them I'd do the installation. I told here that once I made the decision to have them deliver and haul that they were supposed to connect and set them up for operation. Somehow she can make the honey do I done become undone! Well hope that I got everything correct to the install instructions, we'll see tomorrow when we run the first loads through.
