I have to buy a new washing machine. I have to go to Portland tomorrow [Monday] . Any suggestions? I've searched online Home Depot and BestBuy and Costco. BestBuy has the washer I want but not in Portland [I'll check Vancouver]. I don't have a lot of money to spend.

HELP! Ideas?

Standard TV and Aplliance!

Oh and check out the New Zeland brand DC washers....they use aton less energy and get the clothes almost totally dry. I can't think of the brand but there's only one DC washer and dryer, I have both.

WS4 where is this? Can you give me directions from I-84 east? Remember I'm a small town girl [and driver]. How much did they cost?

Thanks for the help!

I also got them. They are the Fisher & Paykal ones. I got the cheaper washer and the top-load dryer.

Overall cost was something like $600 + $700, but I got $400 in rebates. Still spendy though.

Other places you can try:
- Sears
- Hamilton TV and Applicance (where I got my other stuff). Small shop, but decent prices.
- Standard TV & Appliance has everything, but is run like a used car lot (at least at the Beaverton location).

They have a map to the portland store. It's on SE 82nd ave between foster and holgate.
Take 205 south from 84 to the Foster road exit. Head west to 82nd avenue. Head north on 82nd ave and store is on the east side of the road I think.

I like Standard TV and Appliance because you can dicker on prices. :-)

My wife and I tend to buy our appliances from Geoge Smith Warehouse Sales. Great service and they tend to be lowest in price. I believe they have a location off of I-84 in Portland, but we do our shopping at the location off of 217 next to CompUSA and Toys R Us.

Best of luck,

I can go through my supplier, and see if I can get a good price for you, just let me know the model number and the prices you have.

They are located near the airport, so it would be an easy pickup. They also have new dented/last years models for decent pricing.

Steven I tried IMing you but you do not accept IMs.

Here's what I said:

first thank you so much for the offer. Here's what I"m looking at:

[http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6681762&type=product&productCategoryId=cat15060&id=1091101927336]LINK

something like this or similar. I can careless what color. White works best but I do not care if its an off color.

Thanks again, Patty

A bunch of criminals ...

Really? Well as it works out I wont anyway. They don't have the washer I like. I sent this as a link to what I like. I really rather buy from a Mom and Pop if possible then a huge chain but since I'm broke broke broke I have to take what I can get into the equation.

I believe that would be Tom Peterson. Used to be rather successful, ran into some financial trouble. Now he sells bargain stuff and advertises on late night TV.
