Running a water line for the fridge…

So I just bought a new fridge and I need to get a copper water line ran to it. I had a plumber today come by and quote 330-350? I think to do it.. It seems a little pricey just for one small copper line….

Just curious if anyone would shed light on the cost and/or difficulty to do this.
well, we got a new fridge last year and installed it ourselves (seemed easy) but then water went everywhere

we just got a good friend who knows plumbing to do it…he was done in less than 5 minutes

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers WORK!

Just last week I discovered the Mr. Cleam Magic Eraser, I thought they were just a gimmick but for $1.99 I bought two. I used them on the walls and scuff marks. Then I went out to my car and used it on my dash board where I had some really bad black rubber streeks on my tan interior and it came RIGHT OFF! These little pieces of crazy white foam are amazing! Seriously worth the 2 bucks!
shit i might try that then, my wifes car has some rubber scuffs from when we tried to load a too big office chair in a box into a too small two door

Washer suddenly leaking water

it is a double stack. Today I noticed water near the washer and some dirt and sure enough, water is leaking out the bottom of the washer. When I turn it off after it has filled, I can hear water trickling down. Any thoughts?

I haven’t opened it up yet as I would have no idea wtf to do.
