Agreed, would not buy one again. The LG top-load that has no agitator works well, and can handle large/bulky items.

Buy you a washer that looks like the one your mom had when you was a kid, those actually washed and cleaned clothes

I just snagged one of the few sets of remaining Speed Queens from a friend in the business. Speed Queen is switching away from residential to concentrate on commercial machines. I don't know from personal experience, but he told me a list of reasons why he likes them over anything else. Just food for thought.

All I can say is my electrolex sucks. There's some filter that is way back in the machine that I have to pay some guy $200 to clean it each year. The electrolux dryer is nice though. It has the steam thing and removes wrinkles

This doesnt sound good for me
I purchase an Electrolux just 6 months ago - I hope I dont have this issue...but if I do I aint paying a guy 200 bucks to clean a filter- Uh-uh...no way!

I hope you arent talking about this one:

If you are set on a front loader I'd go with Speed Queen. Of course I'd go with Speed Queen on a top loader as well.

Have had samsung side loaders for wash and dry since 2006. Only reason we got rid of the first set in 2015 is we moved and went from electric house to a nat gas house. Only one issue was a $25 door lock broke but that was easy to fix with 3 screws and popped the new one in.

I have spent thousands on washer and dryers through the years. My advice would be to buy the $699 washer and $699 dryer at home depot as whatever you buy is going to break and the repair bill will be within $30% of the replacement cost.

I have a kenmore elite that has been problem free and I like very much but it’s a dozen or so years old. May be different now. Washer dryer combo that I stacked.

We inherited the same model with a condo we purchased. I just spent the first half of today finding a leak and repairing it....pin hole leak in drainage hose. The unit still works but you have to spend a lot of time drying out the tub and gaskets or it will quickly stink like shit. I was hoping it was a major problem so that we could replace it with a top loader.

Wait until it won't stop filling with water and it dumps all over your floor. Do yourself a favor and do NOT leave that thing run in the house when you aren't home. They have been known to ruin entire homes when on the second floor. Lucky for me that I was home when mine decided to flood my house.

We have an LG, it’s been a great machine for us. Purchased in 2007, 3 kids, Golden and it’s still running/washing as new.

As to the OP. The two I've had make me never have one again. My Maytag Neptune was a giant POS and to be avoided at all costs. Get an electro mechanical one if you can. Electronics have caused washers and dryers to be very unreliable so I buy used EM ones and have no issues.
