I'm an expert on this subject because I do at least four loads a day, every day.

I bought a Maytag top loader washer and front loading electric dryer 16 years ago.
I have only replaced the fan in the dryer, and the light bulb.
Total expense $36.49.

My brother-in-law was working at the now-defunct Circuit City back then when I bought them. He was able to get the "scratch-n-dent" models for dirt cheap. My washer had a scratch, about 2" long on the side in the enamel. I got $200.00 off the cost for washer. The dryer had a small tear in the lint screen. Another $200.00 off.

Maytag is the way to go. Accept no substitutes.

A basic proven washing machine design is the way to go. Accept no substitutes.

All the fancy computerized sensors and circuit boards and super space age turbine whiz bang accudry technology fails. There is a reason you can walk into grandma's basement and see a set of avocade green appliances from the 70s still working. Do they draw an extra $0.15/day in electricity? Maybe. But who cares? They've run fine for decades. Your modern designer coloured appliances won't last much longer than it takes for the warranty to expire.
