      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Steam Frontload Washer and Dryers?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else have and use them? I just bought a set this last weekend and have a ton to learn. So far very quiet, cool to look at and seem to clean very well.

The brand I purchased was LG.

Shack I don't have one, but the wife has been asking for one. Keep us updated on how it works for you.

My wife has the steam frontload maytag since this spring and loves it. She uses the quick clothing refresh on wrinkled clothes before she jumps in the shower and almost never uses an iron anymore. As far as stain removal property goes it's inconclusive so far.

Yep Borch, that is the neat feature my wife and I where looking for in steam.

They seem to look impressive though:

Even in the dark:

I have about 8 loads so far and used steam on all of them. I will say my under T's smell much fresher grin than with my old units.

I will report back on tough stains when I get one wink

Down side is the wash cycles are longer (because of efficiency and water conservation), but the plus side is the dryer dries quicker than my old one and my load capability is much larger now. So in the end it works out to be quicker.

The "man" thing with these machines (because of the high speed spinning) is to level them out to a T and make sure your floor can handle them if not on concrete wink . After getting mine level, I had to run loads and adjust while the cycle was on. Takes some time, but in the end they are very quite and do not shake.

They just installed 2 sets of these in the house I'm working on today,( not sure why a family of 4 needs 2 sets plus a compact set upstairs) first time I had seen the new steam washers. Hope the wife doen't find out about them. Look like nice units.

We have noticed our water bill went down quite a bit. That and the way those things spin, they are close to dry when you put them in the dryer.

Read the newest consumer reports for these. When I bought last year the Extra $ for the steam ones was no way near worth the cost.

I got a heck of a deal on front loaders at appliancesmart

Make sure you get the extended warranty on the Washer for sure. The sales lady told us that they have 10 times more repairs calls on the washers than the dryers. Which I can attest to as we have had 6 service calls since March and they have replaced every part in the washer. Cost would have been with labor over $2600 which is $1000 more than what we paid for it. They work well and cut your water and washing time in half but protect yourself, we could have been out $2,600 - I need to buy that sales lady a bottle of Crown!
