    We bought this washer in 2010. It's gotten light usage 2-3 loads a week. Model WFW9150ww00. This is one without a numeric display. Have to count flashes. Some very odd behaviour: From when it was young, it would give a 'too much soap' error, always on the extra rinse cycle. Unplug, wait 10...

    I recently bought a waffle iron in Europe, thinking that I could hook it up to the US 240V grid with a little tinkering. I wanted to ask you guys for input before I do anything stupid, though. If I got it correct, the live wires in a US 240V socket are 180 deg. out of phase and hence have 240V...
