Samsung vs. Whirlpool front-loaders
I am considering two front-loaders, the Whirlpool WFW94HEXW (phew!), a 4.3 cu. ft. 10-cycle washer, and the Samsung WF431ABP/XAA 3.9 cu. ft. 13-cycle HE steam washer, along with the "matching" dryers.
I realize it's a shot in the dark, but does anyone have first-hand experience or thoughts on these two models or brands in general? My eyes are glazing over from reading reviews on the web. The Whirlpool model is almost $200 cheaper (partly because it's white, not stainless platinum) and has slightly larger capacity than the Samsung, but its bad reviews are REALLY bad. (But in general its reviews are good.) What to do? What to do?
If not these models, other good ones in the $900-$1100 price range??
