Thanks!

I also recommend posting on craigslist. If you are in the Arlington area, I would recommend calling Mission Arlington. They will come pick it up for you & you will get a tax write-off!

We recently replaced a washing machine that was not working also. We donated ours to the Salvation Army. They will repair and resell it. All you need to do is call and set up a time and they will pick it up from your home. Then you can also write it off as a donation on your taxes next year.

I liked Tracy's idea but I thought I'd also give you another option. There's a guy who has worked on my washer when it broke down. He might come get it for you if no one else will. His name is Jim Swann at ###-###-####.

Join your local freecycle group at www.freecycle.org and offer it there.

You could call some used appliance stores and see if they would like to come pick it up. You can look in the newspaper or greensheet and there are usually listings for people who will come and take it off your hands. We did that many many years ago with an old broken freezer we had. A man in an old beat up truck came to our apartment and took it away for us. He would fix the broken appliances if he could and then sell them which is how he made his living.

It's very commendable that you are considering other options rather than just sending it to the landfill!

Good luck! :-)

We donated ours to Habitat of Humanity. They will fix it and put in a house. The only thing you have to do is take it to them and it also a tax write off.
