I agree with Doug and Rick ... we've stuck with the old tried and true and have been through two washers in our 27 years of marriage.

Holy crap those are expensive.

I bought my wife the Whirlpool Duet system a few years ago and it is fabulous. We moved about four months ago and left the appliances as they were part of the house sale. At the time they were all top of the line Whirlpool products. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the duet system again. We are waiting for the washer and dryer in the new house to pack it in so we can replace the old units with the Whirlpool system. YMMV. \:\)

I bought a Whirlpool(something) front load washer and dryer a year ago. One thing to keep in mind is that now those suckers do 1000-1,200 rpm on spin cycle. Make sure they are on a firm floor, our laundry is on the 2floor and it shakes the whole floor. It isn't that bad at home but I read reviews of people returning them because they shake too much.

Cool link Peter. My dishwasher is slowly dying (13 year old maytag) so I need a replacement soon. Trouble is, normal dishwashers are too big for a single guy.

I'm gonna check out their single drawer models at a local dealer.

Oh, don't just go with the cheapest. spend the $20 for the consumer reports membership or go to your local library.

Cheap appliances are exactly that. They now last 6-8 years max.

In this case, you get what you pay for.

I bet the expensive ones have a nice deep bass rumble when they run.

You're single Fred? Check out compactappliance.com I got my LG washer/dryer there and saved $400 over WorstBuy. I think they have small dishwashers too.

My wife and I are still running a 1972(there are stickers on it from that year) Maytag, it was her dad's, it just won't die. It looks to be the same one that the Foreman's had in their basement on That 70's Show.
