Don't believe them...they give you instructions about being washer safe, but they lie!
I tried to wash a rug yesterday that, with our having three dogs, needed it, and because of the instructions telling me it was washer safe (but to air dry) I washed it in my heavy duty, stainless steel tub, 14 month old, GE washer. Big mistake. Even bigger mistake to do it so close to Christmas time when money is so tight.
Saving grace, though, was that I didn't settle for GE's repair service. They couldn't come out till next Wednesday and it'd be an $80 trip charge plus repair cost. Two of our local well known repair service companies cost about the same and couldn't come out until next Tuesday. Yeah, I've got two kids and do laundry every single day...that isn't going to work for me. In the yellow pages I found a small ad for a company that had the BBB logo, could come out today and only charged me $35 for the trip fee plus repair. They were out with-in 70 minutes and as helpful as could be. Not only that, but the service guy gave me some names of other local companies (plumbers, electricians) that were family owned and wouldn't rob me blind should I ever need them.
Okay, my sweet friends, the Eagles play Southake Carrol tomorrow at the Texas Stadium. It's the semi-finals. Don't pay attention to where you are or who's going to hear you...let's let it ring y'all.....c'mon, let me hear you...GOOOOOO EAGLES!!!!!!
Thank you...thank you very much. :)
