  • I am renting a condo with a washing machine and dryer. The washing machine and dryer have only worked 6 out of the 9 months of my lease. The landlord replaced the appliances a few months ago, but they are now malfunctioning and flooding my kitchen when I try and do a load of laundry. A tech has been out twice to look at it, and claims there is no problem. I have asked the landlord for a break in rent this month due to the aggravation, as well as the fact that I am paying for a condo unit with a working washer and dryer. I can't get a response from my landlord or the realty company.
