Washing machines reviews make me think there are no good washing machines out there, are there?

  • You can get a simple new machine for $300 but you would be better off buying a quality used on. Direct Drive machines outweight ordinary machines by a large margin and they are low maintenance, no belts.
    What I have got is a Whirlpool. I have seen more vigorous action but it takes care of my needs. A machine which had impressive agitation was Kitchen Aid, again direct drive. It went wrong some way and I had to replace it with the Whirlpool, but while I had it is was very turbulent. The Whirlpool is feeble. I had a 30 day warranty.
    One of the pitfalls of washer buying is that you can never see the machine in operation until you have bought it. Worse still with refrigerators--the buzz they expect you to accept is subversive at least.

  • I use old school top loading washers.

    Esp...Whirlpool, Stabler and Maytag.

    I dislike front loading regardless of how much water they may save.

    They have all kinds of issues with pooling water, mold/mildew and smells.

    My machines are 18+ years old, made in the US and I have a friend who repairs appliances so I have a trustworthy repair guy.

    Find a local tech who's affordable and reliable......better way to go than having any big box store and their unqualifed staff.

  • I am liking my Indesit model, cheap as chips but does the job and been going for years. Wouldn't pay over the odds for a fancy brand name when most are made in the same factory.

  • They are all good. People just expect them to last forever and expect clothes to be folded neat and clean when they come out of the washer.
