Our last fridge was over 20 years old and we got a new fridge from Home Depot this year and I’m thrilled with it.
It’s a 36 inch 2 door fridge with the ice maker/ cold water outlet and bottom freezer. I love it .
It was on sale :playful::eek:nthego:
Thats great that you’ve got a new one though AND just remember Ken,
happy wife , happy life. It’s all good. :grin:

She was not too happy when I was paying and said "Happy Anniversary"

That's a nice refrigerator Ken. I hope you are very happy with it. I'm still fuming over my new washer I bought several months ago.I can't fill it to soak clothes. Who would have thought?

I noticed that as well on the new front loaders. If I want to soak clothes I have to put them in the laundry tub.

That was one huge advantage of the top loaders. And if you felt like it on the top loaders you could give it an extra rinse or an extra spin. There was more control.

I have to use the commercial washers in my apartment. Once the door is locked, that's it until the cycle is finished. You can't even stop it to throw in that extra sock that showed up.

On most washers if the washer lid is up the wash cycle doesn't start once the selected level is reached. Or you can stop the fill when you have enough water in the washer to soak what ever amount you want to soak.

Our refrigerator freezer started icing up this past Winter. I took a chance and ordered a defrost control, and freezer thermocouple online, and had them 3 days later. It took me about an hour to replace the parts, and several months later, everything is still working properly. It's nice to spend $75, to save the substantial cost of a new appliance. I like to fix things, and the savings, over the years, have been well worth the time and effort.

This sounds like you have one of those washers that makes all the decisions for you. I purchased one of these about a year or two ago and hated it! It decided everything for me including how much water I needed. I returned it and purchased a refurbished machine and love it! I make all the decisions with this one just like the old ones did! These new machines would be fine if we could disable the automatic decision making and could make the decisions for ourselves if we wanted to!

My fridge is also 18 years old. So far, so good.

But now that I live alone, my next fridge will be small, simple and hopefully cheap.
