    But load intensive devices like dishwashers after the evening meal could be run for a quick prewash after dinner, and then fully washed at 230AM, and emptied in the AM.

    Same for laundry. I just bought a new washing machine, very sophisticated and was surprised to see the timer feature was not incorporated. You can't just hang a timer on this modern machines and make it work that way - it requires programming prior to use.

      i bought a top-of-the-line kenmore (scratch-and-dent, mind you, 50% off) 7 years ago and it has a timer on it. i pretty much assumed that anything with an electronic controller these days allowed you to set a delay.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

        No timer, and you've got to program it.
        I was surprised too.
