The only reason we have a dryer is because 12 years ago, some guy moved back to the states and gave us his washer and dryer. The washer died a long time ago, but for some reason we hung on to the dryer…. for rainy season…..which was a stupid decision because now the burden of recycling is on the consumer and when we do get rid of it, the fee will be about 50 buck-a-roos.
So, the cheap-o crap-o machine that it is, the door…..which stopped latching about 14 years ago…actually broke off it’s hinges…so in addition to tape on the latch side, there is also tape on the hinge side…. if the door isn’t closed properly, the whole thing stops….so I stuck a stick between it and the wall and I have to remember to DUCK when I walk into the room.
Most of the time it doesn’t even matter because I have 5 long laundry poles, 3 nice hanging racks and a covered deck for all my (environmentally friendly) drying needs…but the forecast for the next seven days is rain, rain and even more rain…. I always laugh when Japan is referred to as a “high technology country”. That might be true regarding computers and stuff, but when it comes to “women’s work” it’s like living in a little house on the prairie!! I could probably use a busy baker oven to dry my clothes better than this worthless piece of modern technology!!!!!!
