Got burned on a Neptune, bought a Kenmore 70 series...
So after getting burned big time on a pair of Neptunes, I made numerous phone calls to see about repair.
No one in my area uses the Tony Tool for bearing replacement, so the repair estimates were well over $400.
Repairman after repairman gave their suggestions for a good all around replacement due to my financial misfortune.
Was going to drive hours going from town to town "looking", but decided an entire day was not worth it.
Instead licked my deep wounds, found a local used appliance store and bought a amazingly clean Kenmore 70 series washer.
Loud? Yes! Uses lots of water? Yes! Am I over the search? Oh yeah!!!
The best part??
I so lucked out and got them delivered this evening!
Running a clean out cycle.
I'll always miss my GE Harmony and had really really wanted to own a Neptune again, but the odds were not in my favor.
Good luck to everyone on their decisions. Believe me when I say I went thru the wringer!!
