Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

For those of us celebrating Christmas, I know this week is sort of nuts for a lot of us so I wanted to make sure I scheduled this ahead of time.

I am still working on Christmas cards, making treats to give out to the neighbors, cleaning the house, planning our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals, etc.  I also have a list of ‘non-Christmas projects’ that I want to work on, but they will have to wait.

I am hoping that everyone enjoys some time with friends and family.

I am looking forward to the New Year and hope you are too.

Later – H

New LG washing machine

Well, the new LG washing machine arrived at the beginning of December, but it didn’t come with LG water inlet hoses. The delivery people connected it to the water inlet hoses we had and started it up (empty) as a test before they left.  Pepper was freaking out!  We hadn’t had a working washing machine for almost a month and the last noises from the laundry room were when the last washing machine was dying (loud, horrible noises).  Pepper was trying to climb up on my lap while I was typing on the laptop!.  (Note: A 60+ pound Golden Retriever doesn’t fit especially when I am trying to balance a laptop computer on it also.)

So, we did a few loads of laundry, but the LG turns the water on and off so fast that we have had water hammering (it makes all of the house water pipes shake in the house) even after I turned down the amount of water coming in.

I did some searching and found out the LG water inlet hoses have to be used (per the manual).  So, I called LG and the water hoses are on order (and probably won’t be here until January).  I also went searching on the Home Depot site and found out there are water hammering arresters that are for going on the back of the washing machine so I bought two of those.

So, for now I am back to doing laundry at the laundry mat and waiting for the LG water inlet hoses to arrive.

I am hoping the problems go away once the new hoses and arresters are installed. I will update when it is back working.

I never realized how much I miss having a working washing machine.
