dear Jerry,
      Three washers are better, working folks tend to all want to do their 
laundry on the weekend and when we have had a machine break down so we were 
down to two it was problematic. Also more kids means more laundry so if you 
have a higher proportion of families with kids you will probably be a lot 
happier with three than two.
           That would be my take on it.
