Kenmore, Whirlpool, GE, Maytag help?
Y'all I need some QUICK help here...

I need to buy a new washer and dryer for the new house. The only problem is I'm having trouble deciding what to get. I think I've ruled out Maytag, after seeing some really bad feedback I read on the Neptune set I was considering.

But does anyone have any good reason why I should buy one vs. the other? I've done some research over the past few days and I'm literally stumped.

I know I want front loaders to save on water, energy, etc. The new house is set up for gas or electric but I prefer electric just for cost reasons. So please bless me with your bloggity goodness and help me figure this one out!

Thanks in Advance! :-)

Wish I could help. I'm still drooling over Richelle's new front loaders! That's ok. Good things come to those who wait, right?

I'm not sure T. I wish I could help out but we still have our old ones from like 6 years ago. I'll have to ask my Mom what kind they got when they moved. I know she loves her new ones!

Hi, I just bought new ones last year, Kenmore - HE2 front loaders and am very happy with them. My hubby did the research online with everyone's comments etc...Consumer reports actually rated the Kenmore HE3 as the best, but I went with the HE2 because I liked it's features best. It has saved us money on our water bill! and some on our electric bill!
Hope this helps!

We don't have front-loaders, but we've never had problems with our Whirlpool w/d. We decided against the front-loaders because the guy at Lowe's told us they get a lot of service calls & returns on them.

Whirlpool's customer service was good to come out and check our machines when I thought we had a problem - but it turned out to be just a little more noisy than it should be when the load is off-balance because our laundry room is upstairs. Above the kitchen. And the chandelier was shaking. But our problem is solved now.

I vote Whirlpool, but I'm sure they're all pretty similar. I never buy the cheapest model, or the most expensive. It's just asking for trouble to skimp on appliances, and buying the pricey ones only leads to disappointment.

Just don't buy a Kenmore Calypso. I love the way mine works, but a lot of people have had trouble with them. There was even a class-action lawsuit, but only for people who had repairs within the initial warranty period. We replaced the pump/motor on ours last week, and it's less than four years old!
