The Blessings Of A Dishwasher (Dead Or Not)

On December 8th 2007 our house burned down and destroyed all of the appliances. Boo.

What a blessing though as we got a new house and new appliances. You know your life is boring when a new dishwasher makes you giddy - let alone a whole new set of appliances. Anyway, on April 28th 2008 we were able to buy the new appliances. Yay.

Jump ahead almost two years. On April 18th 2010, just a day ago, we woke up and the dishes were dirty even though it was supposed to have run the night before. And the lights on the control panel were flashing in an odd manner. It was broke - dead broke. Not quite two years is just not acceptable for an appliance that cost the insurance company A LOT of money. Especially when it comes with a one year warranty. Boo.

"Hey honey - how did we pay for that dishwasher?"
"Oh I don't know, let me go look... We put it on the mastercard."
"You mean the one that doubles the manufacturer's warranty?"
"Yah, that one."
"When did we get it?"
"Let me look, will be two years in 10 days."

A quick phone call to the credit card company and the warranty claim is made and the repair company will be coming out to fix/replace it on Thursday! Gotta love extended warranties. I know Dave Ramsey isn't a fan of them but in this case I have to say how great it was to have purchased the appliances on a credit card! YAY!!!!!

The only bad here - having to do dishes by hand until it gets fixed. Boo.
