washing machine (and maybe a dryer) - any suggestions?
today the washing machine started making a death rattle... i managed to fix it last time it acted up, but i've got markers i'd rather throw parts at - plus it's well into its second decade, so i think a new one is in order. dryer is of the same vintage, and since i like things to match, might have to replace that too.
so, can anyone suggest a quality washer? and perhaps a dryer? any thoughts on where to purchase one or both?
thanks in advance!
we have a nice frigidaire front loading high efficiency washer - auto fills on water based on the size of the load, and spools and spins like a damn jet turbine to sling water out. Works great on poopy diapers
I can't remember the model, I'll have to find out
Whatever the washer is, make sure it's a front loader.
get one with blonde hair big boobs and hips that keep going, she'll dry you too alright
We pretty much got all Whirlpool appliances when we bought last year and have to say I am somewhat disappointed in nearly every one of them excepting the stove and microwave. Previously owned a Maytag front loading washer and dryer set. Maybe 10 years old and the washer crapped out.
Also keep in mind that in the last few decades they have been making washers lighter and lighter. This in turn means that your spin cycles in many washers are horribly quick to unbalance.
Whatever you get, be sure it has a reliable unbalance detection and shutoff. The washer I'm stuck using now will happily try to walk around the room if so much as a sock is on the wrong side.
I buy stuff based on consumer reports...
About 7 years ago I put in whirlpool duet front loaders. They have been fine, with the normal issues. (you have to take the front off every few years and clean out the drain as it will get clogged. course, you find all kinds of neat stuff in there...)
I stacked mine last year, which will give you an idea of how smooth they operate... And we do laundry at least 3 times a week, multiple loads each time.
Buy the biggest one you can, as you can wash your comforters in them!
Oh, and you can seriously haggle the purchase price on washers/dryers... I got mine for about $400 off the "sale" price... Retail was around $1,200 for my washer and I got it for $800 by pitting one store against another, and comparing online prices...
10 matching washers and dryers that cleaned up in our tests
After doing your laundry you need to leave the door open until it dries out inside, that is normal on all front loaders...
Thanks for the input guys; the important thing is that I got my PB stuff washed before the washer went bad
My suggestion is a washer and dryer combo from Maytag. It is their Bravos series. The washer does not have a center aggitator which makes for easily washing sheets and blankets. It also regulates the water level based on load weight and has a self cleaning setting. The dryer has a variety of settings but I mostly use the auto-sense dry feature. I bought the pair from Best Buy roughly 2 1/2 years ago for $1,100. I thought it was a great deal and I have been very happy with them.
