In need of a new washing machine
I have a 6-year old Whirlpool Duet. A few months ago I had a repairman in to replace the door hinge. Lately, two of the cycles on the machine have not been working so I called in the repairman again before I was completely with out a working machine. He said the control panel needed to be replaced (about $300+) I was willing to do that but when he took it off, it was so rusted underneath, the repair job was going to be even costlier and he didn't recommend doing it. So now I'm in the market for a new washer. Don't think I want to stick with Whirlpool (although I know they make most machines). Does anyone have a machine they love and highly recommend? I'm open to either top loader or front loader. Presently I'm considering the Electrolux but want to know if anyone has experience with it.
