How big is too big?

We’ve been struggling with our washing machine for the last couple weeks. We bought it used, but it was like new.

Literally used by a little old lady to wash her clothes (Sorry Barb). I think we’ve had it for 4 years now? It was a high end front loading Kenmore, but we do a LOT of laundry. Having 4 kids will cause that.

After a couple attempts at fixing the current washer to no avail we decided to replace it.

The new machine:

A Whirlpool, 4.5 cubic foot high efficiency, blah, blah, blah.


Yeah, 4.5 cubic feet. We can wash all of the pets and small children in this thing. It’s HUGE . Not like our best robotic vacuum for pet hair but still close enough.

It was delivered today and we bought an self cleaning fish tank for the kids too. I’ll hook it up tonight and we’ll see how it goes. It wouldn’t fit down the basement steps so we had to use the other celler ‘stairs of doom’ to get it in the basement.

It must be special because it has a glass top so you can watch all the action.
