It's funny how it is continually surprising to find new versions of the same thing. For instance, I've been very delighted that we have a washing machine and dryer here, but boy that dryer gives me fits. I just can't figure it out. I haven't been overly concerned, as I knew I would be air drying as much as possible to save on electricity bills. So I basically have been using it as a 10-minute fluff-cycle for my towels (Air-dried towel commiseration, anyone? So crunchy!). But today, during a fluffing session, the machine started cursing me and telling me I needed to "vider réservoir." So, turns out that the dryer has a tank that fills up with water/moisture and when it gets too full, you have to empty it. On the dryer! Did you know about this phenomenon in the laundering world?
Same thing, just a little different.
