Washing Machine Touch Panels Wear Out

Someone had mentioned giving the clothes washer an extra spin at the end to get rid of water, thinking that it would lessen drying time. Figured I'd better mention that I used to do just that, and wore out my electronic panel. The repairman said that the electronic finger tip touch panels are not as durable as the old twist and turn dials. An expensive lesson.

I have discovered that if you don't try to overload the machine, and do smaller loads (and yes, it sometimes means doing more loads,) the spin cycle is able to get rid of the excess water very effectively, and when there is less water, you can run the dryer on a lower heat, and for a shorter period of time, and both those things save money. I have also used wooden drying racks, and put them into a bathtub, and dried clothing that way so that I wouldn't have to run things through a second dryer cycle.
