I want a new washer/dryer.
Hello. I currently have the Fisher & Paykel Washer (WL26CW1) & dryer (DG27CW1). I hope the numbers might help someone figure out which ones we have. The washer has no agitator. I hate them. I never use the HE cycles. I just read a post today with the same problem I have--I would take the clothes out & some still have dry spots if I used HE. The washer continuously gets off balance. The dryer is again staring this very loud screeching sound. Last time it was $$$ to get that fixed. I don't like the way they look, the dryer takes soooo long to dry, the lint builds up behind the cup thing for lint & we have to take it apart & take the lint out & put it back together. I don't like the top loader dryer.I can't reach the bottom & can't stack clothes on top of the dryer.
Before these we had the Maytag--I forget the name. One of the first HE FLs that kept getting covered in mold. They replaced the boot for free once. I didn't mind the HE cycles on it. But it made my clothes smell so bad.
I really want a new set. My husband doesn't like FLs. I don't want any that sit on those drawers--that seems like a waste of money. I'm not sure it has to be HE. I liked a FL. But not if I have to leave the door open as I have cats. I wash a lot of loads but they are not real dirty. I don't need the onboard heater, or whatever it is called. I want to be able to wash a blanket or comforter & dry large loads too.
I'm not crazy about Whirlpool either just because our local Whirlpool factory pulled out & went to Mexico & I know many people who are jobless now.
Does anyone have any idea of any that might fit the bill for me/us? I would appreciate any feedback. We have been a couple times, but I am lost. HELP!
