I must confess I don't do the laundry at my house. We have front loading LG machines Energy star with a hand wash cycle that works great. After we had the washing machine a year I bump into it and turned it on. That is the moment I realized I had not idea how to turn it off.
So my hip is the first thing that turned on the machine. I have used it three times since then for my quilt fabric and it works great. My hubby seems to like the hand wash and delicate cycles.
Here are some pictures.
