One of the best investments I ever made was purchasing the extended warranty on my washer and dryer in 2007. I could complain that they've been out to repair it at least 5 times and it's still not fixed, but there are two bright spots: A) They still work and B) I don't have to pay a thing. If I were to add up all of the service calls and parts that have been purchased trying to fix the error code, we would be well over $1,000. All I've really had to sacrifice is my time and patience waiting on the repair man to figure it out. I'm going to focus on the positive and look on the bright side. It's a lot more fun over there.
