Washer / Dryer Combo
I have no idea what I should be looking for in terms of a washing machine and dryer. A repairman who serviced our dishwasher told me to avoid foreign brands (Samsung, LG) and to opt for a top-loading washer, but that's all I really have to go on.
I can probably go about another month using a laundromat before I break down, so this isn't extremely time sensitive, but I should probably start paying closer attention sooner than later.
Is there a good time to buy (I can't wait until Fall/Black Friday)? And are the washer/dryer sets featured in the weekly ads really on sale or would I have just as much luck going to Costco?
