There are many electrical appliances in my house. There are light bulbs in every room. But they need to be repaired because they don't turn on. There is an oven and a dishwhasher in the back of the kithchen. There is a fan in my bedroom, but i don't turn it on much because i like to save electricity. In the laundry room there is a washing machine that needs to be replaced because it doesn't work.
Allí hay muchos aparatos eléctricos en mi casa. Hay un bombillo en cada cuarto. Pero hay que repararlos porque no encienden. Hay un horno y un lavaplatos en la cocina. Hay un ventilador en mi dormitorio, pero y no enciendo porque me gusta ahorrar la electricidad. En el lavadero hay también la lavadora necesitar (replaced?) porque no funcionan.
Slightly better in the 5th sentence to say "but I do not turn IT on = check spelling of yo = "pero yo no lo enciendo porque..."
If you can't say replaced (reemplazar) simplify it like "we need a new one because..."
la lavadora is THE and A is better = una lavadora...
no funcionan says THEY do not work, but you are talking about IT, singular!
también se necesita reemplazar la lavadora porque no funciona.
Where is your "hit list" = the list of errors you tend to make that you want to stop making?
1. check gender of noun(s)
2. have all adjectives modify (same number & gender) e ach noun
3. have all verbs agree with subject
Now, everytime you proofread, and you should learn to do your own proofreading FIRST, look for those 3 kinds of things specifically. It won't be long until you will do it automatically!
