Fisher & Paykel Washers - Newest thoughts?
I have been following the excellent discussion on this forum about possible selections for washers and dryers. I was all ready to go to Lowe's and buy the Fisher & Paykel washer and dryer, probably the CW2 or DW2 as I like the Best of Both Worlds - Dual Washing Modes option. I do want a HE top loader.
However, when I got to Lowe's (St. Petersburg) - they no longer are carrying Fisher & Paykel as they have had so many problems with them! So I came home and phoned the 4 repair shops in our area that are the service centers for F&P, and 3 said they do have a great number of repairs for F&P and that the parts are expensive. I was so disappointed.
Repairs are mentioned frequently for F&P on this forum, but for those who purchased in the last 2 years - any problems? Has F&P improved themselves of late?
Also, would I be better with a Whirlpool or Kenmore that has copied the F&P "no agitator" technology? One of the Kenmore's has 2 pumps rather than one?
Thanks very much for taking the time to reply.
