Washing machines these days
 
So our 25 year old Whirlpool washer has an issue I can fix, but after taking a look and realizing how gross (mold) the insides are we are thinking of getting a new set.

I want a no frills commercial quality set. No fancy screens, settings, etc. Reading reviews is damn near impossible to know what to get. Anyone around here familiar with modern washers/dryers and know what is heavy duty and built to just last. Like I said no frills. No efficiency bull**** that barely gets the clothes wet. I wanna toss whatever I want in there and know its getting cleaned.

I was told by an appliance guy to stay away from LGs. He said that they***8217;re nice, but when you need service under the warranty, you can be down quite a while. He preferred Maytag. If I remember correctly he said whirlpools and maytags were basically the same, but maytags were best as far as warranty service went.

I don***8217;t know firsthand, I***8217;ve never needed warranty service. I do miss the simplicity of top loaders, they were always easy to fix. We currently have front loaders, they are much quieter, but I have had to replace electronics in them.

Edit: not today lemon

I have a 30 year old Whirlpool. Steel. There's not even a ***** ass gentle cycle. Get that plastic **** out of here.

I'll ask a Sri Lankan. Oh wait, she's ****ed off. I think we have a Samsung. Guess I'm gonna have to find out.

I was looking at Speed Queen as it seems they build some heavy duty ****, but price is very high. I just can't bring myself to spend $1400 on a washer. If I have trouble with the new one though will probably say F it and spend the cash.

Yeah I keep getting the same recommendations. Maytag and Whirlpool seem to be at the top of everyones list. Just got off the phone with my dad. Same thing. He said three things.

Make sure its a full size agitator. Fills water to top. No glass tops.

Samsung makes solid stuff, but they seem to be trying to push the edge of technology with their stuff. Lot of reviews that point out the more complicated they get the harder they are to use and more things can break.

I just want a washer I toss clothes in. Press single button and 45 minutes later I have clean clothes that can go in the dryer.

If you keep it for 25 years that's like $4 a month.

This is true. Wonder if I can get a 25 year loan.

Spending $1400 I'd rather it be on something more fun and not taking money out of my 68 Firebird savings.

Fool 06-18-2022 12:34

Impress your neighbors with it then charge them a buck a wash.

Mr Jimmy Pop 06-18-2022 13:04

Nothing built today will last 25 years (by design). 10 years maybe, 15 tops.


Mitch, this thread has nothing that you can relate to. What was the last thing you actually maintained yourself? Itís not your fault, youíre not American and really canít understand the gratification we get when we fix something.

I donít understand your world either, so itís all good.

Most washers are woke these days.

Hellsfury 06-18-2022 14:16

$4 a month for a Sri Lankan is a pretty good deal...

I wonder how much ****, goat cum, queefs, boogers, pee etc she put in your food over the years...

"Pursuant to the Green New Deal and Great Reset, you went over your daily allotted water usage and power usage to do this load of laundry. Please try again tomorrow"

We have a Bosch front loader. Wife chases bargains and got a 2nd hand online thing. Has a scratch or dent or something on the side. I've never notice it. Works well. A friend had a business with laundromats. They used Maytag.. apparently they make heavy duty washers.

You know those washers and dryers you all have hauled away for free when you buy a new one....
they end up in Mexico.
I'll take a picture next time I see it at the border.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Plaz could fabricate one of those from stuff he already has.

SeVeReD 06-19-2022 00:05

For 275?
oh stuff he already has... ya, prolly 2 or 3 of 'em
