Enough with the wrinkles

I moved to a new place with in-unit washer and dryer a few months ago. Since I started using those machines, my button-down casual and dress shirts come out of the laundry extremely wrinkled. Jeans also end up wrinkled enough that they usually require ironing. I've almost never had to iron clothes in the past. Now I spend quite a bit of time ironing everything, and it's especially difficult and time-consuming because the wrinkles are so severe. How can I stop this from happening? Ideally I want to go back to those blissful days of not ironing at all. A few pertinent facts inside. [more inside]

Home Laundromat!

I would like to buy a used washer/dryer and thought I'd pick your collective brains. I've been in apartments with coin op laundry for so long the thought of buying a washer/dryer is daunting. I looked on craigslist and there are scads and scads of washers and dryers and the prices run from stoopid cheap to stoopid expensive. [more inside]

Can we mismatch a stacked washer/dryer?

Our washer & dryer are a stacked set of Frigidaire Gallery front-loading machines. The washing machine, which is 10 years old, just gave up the ghost. We'd like to replace it, but they don't currently sell a Frigidaire model that is designed to be stacked with our Frigidaire dryer (which is only 3 years old, and working just fine). I can't seem to find an appliance store that will sell us a different brand of washing machine, because they say it's not safe to stack mismatched units. Is there any way we can do this safely, so we don't have to replace a perfectly good (and expensive!) dryer just to replace the washing machine? [more inside]

Laundry should smell nicer after it's washed.

My front-loading washing machine smells bad, and makes my clothes smell bad. It smells mildew-y or like a sour dishcloth, and has imparted sour dishcloth smell to my favorite black (i.e., can't be bleached) pants. [more inside]
