Washer & dryer recomendations?

Me & the wife want to buy a new washer & dryer. We want to get frontload units.

Any brands to avoid?

And what are the best brands to look at?

Thanks JB

jb...I know I'll probably get slammed for this but, we just bought two new front load units about two months ago.

Samsung is the brand and we got them from Lowes. They are great...quiet, high capacity, energy efficiient, use less water.

Maytag's Neptunes were really really bad to the point they hurt the company I was told by a sales guy if that's worth anything.

We bought a top of the line Whirlpool front load about 2 years ago and no problems to report. We bought it based on price point and customer satisfaction and number of repairs after one year .... data we could find at the time. The top of the line LG was about $700 more and had a higher rate of repair.

One thing to watch for might be a stand. You can get stands for some of them, some stands have a roll out drawer. I dunno, I didn't buy a stand ... though I'd like one cuz the bottom back of top load washers is waaayyyy down there (one of the few times I get to see my toes). I think I'd rather build a sturdy box for it to sit on. Anyway, just thought I'd mention it ... might be something you'd like or a haggle point for ya.

I'm making damm sure I read this without the Wife looking. She wants one and ours are just fine. Probably last another 15 years. So what if it opens from the top??

What do you do with the front load ones, sling the detergent in side armed??

You guys need to change the title of this thread to something about race cars or firearms. I know she won't open those!!

It has a compartment you pour it in. Hey, I wouldn't buy one til ours were on their last legs, over 15 years old and used hard. The washer was leaking yellow transmission fluid for a year. The repairman said it would cost as much to repair as buy a new one. I said, let her run til she dies. and eventually she did. (the washing machine, not the wife)
