Re: accessible washers and dryers

Gerald Levy
 

There are two types of front loaders in the laundry room of my building.  The regular size front loaders take about 25 minutes, while the jumbo front loaders take about 35 minutes.  We used to have top loaders with agitators that took about 20 minutes, but they broke down constantly, and could not hold a very large load and so they were replaced by front loaders which are larger and are supposed to be more reliable.  And they're made by Maytag, the "dependability people". But even though they are supposedly dependable, they are certainly not very accessible because they have touchpad controls, which, of course, cannot be labeled with tactile markers because they are the property of the landlord. And the laundry card vending machine is not accessible, either.

It probably depends on the frontloader. You probably have a more expensive one

That is not true! My world pool front loder has a button to stop the machine and
you can drop something in to the machine and turn it back on. So it is not true
you cant add things to the machine when it starts if you have
afront loader. Please make sure to get your facts straight. Front loaders
do not use as much water and they do not have an agitator that your loads can
get stuck on. SO when shopping, ask if the front loader has a stop button to
add items after the machine starts; most do unless you are getting the very low
end machine!

If you forget to put something in a front loader washer, you cannot add
it. My roommate did that one time without thinking, and there was quite a
flood. Of course the water just came right out when she opened the door.
With a top loader, you can open the lid and put it in before it fills up
all the way. I like "more better for that reason. Some of my aids put
the front loader back on thinking that it is the dryer. So the clothes go
through the cycle again with just water. Then they think that the dryer
is broken when the clothes are still wet. I then make them pay for the
dryer on top so that they will learn to use their head for more than a
hatrack. One of them put a drum very mine on the heater. I could not
understand why I kept hearing snapping sounds een the heater was stopping
during cycles. It took me a week to find what the sound was. A
maintenance man came in to do something for me, and he told that my drum
was on the heater. The tuning strings were expanding when the heat would
switch on, and then they would snap back when the heat would turn off. I
was not happy with the aid. I knew who did it based on who was here and

Lord that the drum was ok and not damaged. That was a miracle. No

Wow! Thinking that a washer is a dryer after you have just washed the clothes in it? Yes, it seems that it's just a hatrack! You can't open the ones here after you start them. You can, however, open the dryers. Pam.

Just out of curiousity, how much is a high end model. The smart one I chose costs 699 dollars, discounted from around 1000. Is that a high end model, the one discounted to 849 has an additional drum light, and is
5.0 Cubic foot in capacity, which isn't worth the extra 150 dollars or so I would say. Also, on front loaders, I have lived abroad extensively, and outside of the United States, front loaders are basicly the only type of machine in existance. They are typically gentler with clothes and use alot less electricity and water, which translates to a larger cost saving. But if you want one, you can get a samsung smart washer for under 600 dollars currently with the discounts.

We leave the dorr open on our washer all the time. Ours has a stop or pause
button if you need to add something. The only problem that we have with ours is
that it shakes and rattles a lot, it gets out of balance for some reason. It's
really annoying when it does this. Hope you can find a washer and dryer that
works for you! Good luck!

First of all, I have no idea as to how on earth you got that
machine open
when there was that much water in it. The one we have
unlocks right at the
beginning so that if you have discovered that you forgot
something, you can put it in. There is also a pause/cancel
button that allows you to open when safe. Judging from some
of the incidents you described, such as your drum, you
would do better to do some of this stuff yourself rather
than depending on people that obviously do not have the
brains God gave a gnat. As far as the washer not having an
agitator, around the inside of the drum there are several
good size bumps that as the drum rolls cause the items being
washed to mix up and roll around.

That depends on the model though. There are front loaders that allow you
to add items to the wash. The one my family used actually won't unlock
the door if there is a risk of flood, but will only do it if the water
level isn't that high.

hi gene,
no I do not know anyone else on the list. this blind movie buff list is an announcement only list, and replying to any of its messages is not possible and results in a, this email cannot be delivered, error message. I want to unsubscribe in order to cut back on how much email I get. and these days that announcement list is not needed for me, because there are websites such as the audio description project which I find are more useful than that announcement only blind movie buff list that I subscribed to years ago. and it has been 5-plus years or more I think since I got on that list. It's been so long I don't even remember how I subscribed to it. but since these days such an announcement list is not needed or necessary,   I want to just unsubscribe. 


Re: Apostrophe on a phone numpad

Gene
 

I went through all the symbols before and I tried every key just in case it is in another place.  I finally figured out a way to do it but I'm not sure if it is the intended way and I haven't played with it enough to know if it works properly since odd things happen.
If I press the star key followed by another key, some signs are generated that aren't otherwise.  But it also seems to cause other odd things to happen at times when I enter the next letter or number I want to enter.  I'll experiment more and see what happens.
 
Thanks to those who offered suggestions or who will.

Hi, on my phone it is on the number 1. Mind you there is quite a lot of symbols on 1 you just have to keep going until you get to it.

 

Hope this helps.

Subject: [TechTalk] Apostrophe on a phone numpad

 

How do you write an apostrophe on a feature phone with a numpad, I've done Google searches and I've had every key's output spoken by going through all the characters associated with that key.  For example, a, b, c, and 2, for the 2 key.  I have found no apostrophe.  How is it written or is something else substituted?

Thanks for any information.

Re: accessible washers and dryers

It depends on the program and amount of garments in the machine. High end ones sense how much is in, and fill the machine accordingly. When it isn't totally full, and hasn't filled up yet, you can unlock the door.  Some programs let it fill slowly, periodically while tumbling.
