I don’t like having to go to the laundromat… Back when I lived at my old apartment, my good friend and I weren’t allowed to have washers & dryers inside of our units.
And there was only one washer & dryer on each floor, & I could never get a load in even if I tried, then so more often than not I didn’t have a choice & could only take my laundry to the laundromat.
And the laundromat was seriously costly, even back then. A important load of clothes takes 5 to $7 to wash just in the washing device nowadays. And that is not even considering the cost to dry it, but one of the most important things about the house I am renting right now is the clothes washer & dryer. I don’t have to take my laundry to the laundromat knowing that I have both of these appliances in my laundry room. However the dryer stopped toiling the other morning & I couldn’t get a hold of my house owner. He eventually told me he would try to buy a current one, but it would take a week to get it replaced. To avoid going to the laundromat, I decided to try to fix the clothes dryer myself. I figured out that it wasn’t heating the clothes consistently. There was an issue with the thermal fuse that determines how much heat the clothes dryer needs while it runs. The form of thermal fuse prevents the clothes dryer from overheating during normal use. It was a $30 part & I replaced it myself. Now the clothes dryer is heating up again consistently like it’s supposed to.
