Had a Samsung FL on my short list for a new washer. Is there any way to watch this and not eliminate SS from consideration?
Spider failures are not specific to Samsung.
Yes, these happen on all brands. Just google "spider failure washer" and do a picture search - you'll see almost every brand represented.
I know it happens to other brands, but he says this one is 2.5 years old. Isn't it unusual at that age?
you still haven't bought a W&D yet?
