Last week I cleaned my windows outside including my patio doors. Fine, not problem with that. A couple of days later I see moisture in between the panes on one of the patio doors. The seal must have gone...b***dy *ell and words to that effect. So I call the manufacturer who makes the windows to see what's what, and of course it is out of warranty, another b***dy *ell. To cut a long story short, it is cheaper to replace the whole door than the two panes of glass so will cost around the $400 mark.... triple b***dy *ell. I tell them I will think about it, as this is all I need spending $400 on a patio door on a house we are going to sell. By the way should mention each door is 4 foot wide, they are big doors.
Next day I look at the door no moisture??? If the seal had gone the moisture is there all the time. The phone rings and its another person from the window place and we get talking and she lives in the area, and I tell her what's what, and say the funny thing is there is no moisture. She then says it must have been on the outside and its not the seal that has gone, and hers does the same thing. Finally a bit of good news...........YEAH!!! I think it must have been something to do with me cleaning the windows, the drastic temperature changes we had in those few days.
Friday I am doing my laundry and there is a *ell of a racket coming from my front loader washer. Do a load of laundry Saturday morning and my washer is not well at all. There is something wrong with the drum and I am left with a sopping wet load of laundry in my washer. So run next door to "R's" and pop it into her washer to spin the water out. Meanwhile dh has the washer to bits and it's the drum, but inside of the drum, where he can't get too.
He goes on the Internet and googles our washer model: Kenmore 970-C42062-00, and lo and behold, everywhere you look everyone has had the same problem with their washer, the drum rust off and it breaks!!!! So I call the service department of Sears and it's $80 for the guy to come out to take a look, and whether or not they'll cover this under warranty is debatable. Its going to be an expensive repair, but I have to have a washer, plus when we come to sell the house, the appliances will have to be included in the sale, its expected. They will blame the laundry detergent I am using, but I am using my homemade stuff, which is no suds, as you have to use a low suds laundry detergent.
Also a while back I lost one of my under wires from my bras in the machine, so I can guarantee he'll find that in there, as we couldn't see it. When I first talked to her, the earliest appointment for the guy to come and look at it, was February 17th, what the heck.......by the time I had finished on the phone with her, the guy was coming today between 8am and 4pm, no idea how I managed that???
I mean this is all we need having to have to go to the expense of buying a new washer.
