Hello Everyone,Well, if my friday wasn't bad enough (CC problem and ripped pants at work) Saturday started off even worse:While my wife and I were doing laundry, water started pouring out of the machine. I did the usual "check for anything stupid" look and found nothing wrong.We had bought this machine about two years ago, when we first moved to Japan. Actually at the time we bought a washer, dryer, stove, and refridgerator. For some reason we couldn't get the matching washer and dryer, but we didn't care.We drove over to the furniture store on base where we had purchased the machine about 2 years ago, to inquire about getting someone to come out and fix this machine.The manager came out and told me that they don;t have anyone to repair these machines locally. I though I was going to be stuck either buyer another american made machine or going out a getting a Japanses washer (which are about 1/2 the size and 3 times the price).The manager then askes, do you have a receipt for your machine still. Well, Terri pulls the thing right out, since we keep all the receipts on our major purchases.The manager replies, "No problem, I'll have a NEW one delivered this afternoon, no charge" Later that afternoon, the furniture store delivered a brand new washer to our house, after getting lost on the way (did I ever tell you there are very few street names in Japan). Anyway, the machine they delivered was a slightly more expensive model than the one that broke, and it matches our dryer.Talk about a happy end to a bad situation.Lenny...continuing with the my dirty laundry in Japan
