Washing Machine Woes

I'm having washing machine issues again... second time in two years.

So, I'm putting a call out there for some input in case I need to buy a new one. I need a top loader due to space limitations.

So, what do you have? Why did you buy it? What problems have you had? ETC.

Anything you can share is appreciated.

Gotta run to the inlaws to pick up a load of laundry!!!

I don't think I can be of any help here, my washer and dryer are both 25 years old...I am waiting for them to quit...been waiting for a long time. I want a set of those front loading ones with the drawers underneath. By the way mine are Maytag...I think I should be on a commercial for how long they last and get a new set for free! Good luck and keep us informed as to what you get!

I'm afraid I'm of no help whatsoever cuz I could use a new one myself! I'll be anxious to see what you choose. Ohhhh and LOL at that kittie! She looks like me today (LOL)

In a word: Miele
Granted I have a stacking front loader & we "only" bought it because it was one of the narrowest full sized washers on the market.

Granite counters and a wall limited our choices substantially & ours are stacking so you may actually have more space that us!

Anyway, we have been very satisfied & I think that if they had a narrow front loader (That does not have to be stacked - officially - we have the cover so if we ever move with the washer & dryer we could have then unstacked) they probably have a narrow top loader as well.

We have a Maytag Heavy Duty something-er-other. LOVE the over-size capacity (with one big/TALL husband and three growing girls---it's ALWAYS full!!!)

AND, that pic got lots of giggles from three lil' girls up here :0)

I presently own a Fisher/Paykel top loader. I wouldn't buy another. It is okay but there are lots of things I don't like about it. The very best machine I have owned in 46 years of marriage is the one I had prior - a stackable Maytag unit. It was wonderful. I traded because I wanted the top loading dryer, which I DO LOVE! The washer is adequate but the Maytag could take anything I handed it and I had it close to 20 years and then donated it to Salvation Army so hopefully someone else is enjoying it now.
