Washer/Dryer Situation

From ?- 2008 or 9? we had washing machines which charged some quarters for the deed.

2009-? We were gifted a lovely washer/dryer set. Though awesome to have these, the idea is that we wanted to buy our own energy/water efficient models with warranties. Because we own these machines, if they break down, we will have to pay for maintenance and maybe be out of luck on doing laundry until any issues are fixed.
