unfortunately you can not open the washer once it as started (that seems to be the only draw back that I have found besides the price of the machine but that balances out soon enough)

Yikes, no, you can't open, but I acrue washing so quickly there is bound to be another appropriate load going in soon....the people who do hardly any washes, how do you cope with separating things?

I only do about a load a week
I have lots of clothes and hand wash my "unmentionables"
(sometimes it is hard to find enough to fill a load)

I do 2 loads a week, it's usually the underwear/tshirts in one load and everything else in the other. new clothes, ill wash with like colors the first few times so they don't stain the others but I have no problems with only 2 loads. no bleeding colors or anything

dw does most of the laundry in our house. i'll do my own clothing if she's really busy and i see that i'm running out of socks or tighty-whiteys or something.
i'd have to say she does about 2 loads a day, about 6 days a week. sometimes a third load. they are usually small loads; she seems obsessed with having everything clean to be able to wear at any time.

my wife is a clothes horse, and the little guy likes to wear as much of his food as he eats, so between the two our son wears a dozen different pairs of pants and shirts just about every day.

including my clothes (which she complains are too big and heavy so i usually fold and put away my own ), my son's and her clothing, there's a lot of wash to do.

I just read an interesting tidbit about Sphynx, those hairless cats (like Mr. Bigglesworth from Austin Powers) the other day... being hairless, they feel often cold and tend to snuggle up inside the tumble dryers, which are often warm. So if any of you happens to have this type of cat, please check your dryer before loading and starting it, make sure it is catfree!!
