Grandmother-proof Washing Machine?
Four adults live in the house, three with full time jobs and long commutes, and grandmother, who likes doing laundry. She's 75, in good health, but has a bad back.
Time for a new washing machine.
I was thinking about an LG wave top loader but wonder whether 5'3" grandmother can reach down into the bottom to remove the washed clothes or adapt to shaking out each item of clothing before putting them in the drier?
Also, I have doubts whether she can adapt to micromanaging laundry detergent level dispensation, as she grew up with the old time washer that had a mangle attached. You may never of heard of such a thing. You put the clothes between two rollers to squeeze them dry before hanging on the clothes line.
For the rest of us, hanging around while the clothes are washing to make sure to put them into the drier immediately after they are done is not a good option for us. We tend to start a wash before heading out the door to work and come home maybe ten hours later.
