We're moving into a new apartment at the end of the month, and it has a HE front loading washer. To be honest, this is the thing I was MOST dreading with apartment hunting... But there's nothing I can do about this. The lady said it's a Frigidaire, and sent me a few pictures, but of course didn't send any pictures of the washing machine knobs up close. The "Frigidaire" part is written in cursive on the machine, and the machines of the Frigidaire website having block letter writing... So I'm thinking it might be a few years old?
I've read some of the posts about washing machines, and I know this topic comes up a lot... But for those of you who use this type of washer:
Do you ALL use tricks to get enough water into the machine? I've read about people dumping buckets of water, adding soaking wet towels, etc. Any chance the washer will just work without any of this craziness? I'm now frightened that our diapers aren't going to get clean and I'm not going to know how to fix it :(
