Having a bad day or something is not quite right? Let it out here and you may or may not feel better. :D 

 

 

 

I had a buddy who just sent me a text asking if I wanted to play golf around 1:00 p.m. today. I had to tell him maybe, because my wife may have to go out of town and someone has to be home as the Samsung Repair man is coming.   :angry: 

 

We have one of those on the list where the washing machine lid could potentially blow off!   Anyways one of their service reps is coming out today to repair it.  The good thing is it's totally covered via Samsung as it should be.  No more of them washers for me as I have already had two previous issues with it.  One being under warranty and the last one being a stabilizer bar breaking which happen right after warranty had expired. :angry:

They do know how to time the warranty just right! I bought a new refrigerator that needed a new $550.00 part 2 days after the warranty expired. Fortunately, my brother is very versed in electrical things and he just rewired and bypassed the faulty part. It's been working for 3 years now. 

 

Why do I get the feeling I should have just kept my mouth shut? :rolleyes:

haha yea it seems the household necessities are programmed to crash after about two years.  They crash later than that if you have a one or two year extended warranty on top of the original warranty :angry: 

 

Heck I was watching the news one night and saw this about the Samsung washing machine lids exploding.   Glad I did because I would have shat all over myself if I was walking by the washing machine and the lid flew off! :o

I agree, not rant worthy :) my passive/aggressive rant - I'm on a bus for 5 hours, but then I'll be in Miami jumping on a cruise ship for the next 7 days after... And of course no golf while on the boat; life is tough... Lol

I see it all the time working for a metal recycling company. Some of the appliance guys or maintenance guys from the motels will drop off what appears to be a fairly new nice looking washer or dryer. I have had a couple of the guys explain to me about circuit boards and such and it costing more in parts and labor than a new machine will sell for. I know for a fact some of the higher end condos will take out a washer and dryer when the warranty expires and they will still be working.. I know several guys buy those machines and sell them and one of them knows several tricks on bypassing circuit boards and such. I am sorta scared of that thinking they may catch fire or something like that but then again my years as a volunteer fireman may make me paranoid

Hell,,,, years ago you could buy a Kenmore washer or dryer  and you couldn't break the damn things!  You could drag em behind your pick up truck and they would keep on ticking. They had the spindle doo hickie thing in the middle but that didn't bother me. Good quality USA products that were manufactured with pride. Hmmmm it's a shame that type craftsmanship is a by gone memory.

We bought an old Maytag washer and dryer that were 15 years old, and used them for 16 years and never had to have anything replaced or fixed, the only reason we don't have them now is because we downsized our large appliances and furniture when we came south

That's because it's all made overseas... No pride in production, parts are cheaply made, of low quality.

Quite possibly, but also because no one wants to pay enough for well made appliances. Appliances now cost the same in $s as they did 20 years ago, so much cheaper when you take inflation into account.

Most consumer goods now are designed to fail after a reasonably short time. If things are too well made, companies lose future sales, and eventually go out of business by making too good a quality products.

    Anyone out there wear or have worn New Balance spikes? In my opinion they make a pretty good shoe. As of late they have worked there way into the baseball scene and appears they have done quite well.
