Last year, Husband and I bought a new washer and dryer set. After doing some research, we chose Samsung because they ranked highest in customer satisfaction and service, and they look great in the laundry room.
They operate as I expected, but what I didn't expect was the chime that comes at the end of the cycle to tell you the machine has finished. The washer and dryer don't just ding or buzz. They play an entire song that I have come to enjoy so that I don't open the door until the final note. Silly, isn't it?
Maybe it's not so silly. Maybe it's nice to have a machine that does something as daily-chore-like as washing and drying clothes do more than ding. It's nice to have a machine that sings to you, that offers a melody to let you know it's time to fold the clothes. I wouldn't mind if more machines in my house communicated with me through melody.
The washer and dryer play a tune based on Schubert's "The Trout." I'd like it if my oven sang "If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked A Cake." My coffee maker could chime "Java Jive." I absolutely hate the Toast Song, but it might be nice if my toaster chimed "Minuet In G" or some sweet tune that would be great to hear first thing in the morning.
This isn't a video of my own machine, but this is the song I hear when I do laundry. It lightens the load.
