Each Tower has 12 Maytag Energy Advantage commercial front load washers and 14 commercial large capacity dryers. The cost is $1.50 for each cycle. An oversized washer and dryer is located in the West Tower which can be used for quilts, bedspreads, down parkas, etc. The cost is $2.50 for each cycle. High efficient washing machines utilize considerably less water, so don’t panic when you don’t see a lot of water – that is the point of energy efficiency!
H•E liquid detergent works best with less water. The machine can actually sense the amount of clothing and adds the proper amount of water to do the job. Look for the symbol indicating low sudsing, high efficiency (H•E) detergents to reduce oversudsing and maximize cleaning results.
For the convenience of our residents, the “Diamond Center” will accept cash or debit/credit card to add value to their access card to use the washers and dryers.
Many residents use the machines throughout the day and evening, so as a courtesy to other residents, please take your laundry out as soon as the cycle is complete. The room is never locked and is available 24 hours a day, year round.
A bulletin board is located in each Laundry Room for notices of items that you want to buy or sell, or services offered.
Housekeeping retains laundry that is left for an extended period; please check with them. A box for suggestions and indicators of machine malfunction are also in each room.
