We replaced that $30 washer we bought on Craigslist with a newer-but-still-old one. A valve had finally failed and if I wanted to do a load of laundry I had to watch for the spin cycle to end and turn the water off at the pipes or it would refill and overflow. Which is obnoxious, but not as obnoxious as loading up clothes and kids for a trip the Laundromat.
I loved that old yellow washer, but with the amount of laundry I do, I'm tickled pink that it lasted almost two years. That's longer than the brand new high-end Whirlpool went without giving me trouble.
I even got some knitting done.
