Does ANY Washer last 10+ years now??
Between 2001 and 2007, I went through 2 washers. Both died of leaking bearings that took a lot of clothes with them (grease stains that set in the dryer) each time. They were a Maytag and a Whirlpool models respectively and this was pre-merger of the two companies.
Then, I bought a house in 2008 with a 10-14 year old Kenmore installed in its laundry room. This workhorse survived two messy young kids, and our two dogs for the last 2 1/2 years. After the last couple of loads, I realized we were getting grease stains from bearing issues.
I am LOATHE to replace this device. I don't blame the washer for failing. It survived the last family (who also had kids and a dog) plus my own. It was mostly metal parts and I loved it. I am just sick of washers failing.
So, is there any washer out there where I will not be giving it a shifty eye 3-4-5 years from now?
