Unrealistic Reviews....Venting about it.
ok, i have to vent, and let me say that i am not referring to the things i read here, but the things i read from the users at the product site. I made the mistake of reading reviews for weeks to help us pick out a FL washer and dryer. I read stuff like "it is so quiet that i have to touch it to see if it's running", "so quiet" "spins like a dream", "hardly any vibration noise at all", "can leave the laundry door open, and not hear it", "could take a nap next to it", "can even have it down the hall from bedroom". "can't believe how quiet this set is". "cleans so well" ETC.... So i guess i am so gullable, because i did believe somewhat of what they were saying. BUT... I have NOT found any set that is as described. You all here know that i went through 4 Samsungs, and yesterday, we decided to try Electrolux. Are they kidding me???? Are reviewers DEAF????? I would like for people to be REAL, that's why we read reviews. Back to the Electrolux, it was more quiet during washing than the Samsungs,i liked the light, the options, but when this baby went into a spin, it sounded like a freight train was coming. No matter how much we kept it level. It didn't matter the size load. It was a joke. It vibrated so much that i was afraid to put the dryer on top of it because it would probably have shaken the screws loose on it!!!!! Then, lets talk about the Dryer, oh, yes the Dryer. The motor hum of this thing was so loud that my husband went to sit outside until the clothes were dry to get away from it, but when he got out there, the loud whistle from the vent ran him, off. He said it would call all the dogs in the neighborhood!!! He said maybe he could put a muffler on it. To me, this is an honest review of what I experienced. Just the vibration of the washer alone, would be too much. Are people paid to put all that dreamy stuff on the reviews at the stores they got them from? Just say that "it's kind of loud when spinning" or "did vibrate" you know , just be real. I am sorry to vent this much guy's, but i am so discouraged here. i don't expect a silent washer and dryer, that is unrealistic, but i do want to have a better idea of what it is i am buying. Just say that the dryer has a hum that may be irritating or something. I don't know what to get now, i don't know if i should even keep looking. I can say that the Samsungs had a smoother spin, only with a whine, but not overly loud, it was like a muffled tornado siren, I liked all the options too, but i just had problems with stuff not working on them in the first week of having them. I don't know why, but that is just what happened. I feel jinxed!!! I am just tired of some people exagerating on the reviews. Not all of them can be so good after what i have gone through, and they need to be aware that people really do sometimes make decisions from them on what to buy. Oh, well, what can you do? at least i feel better after writing so much. Thanks for listening!! at least i was still able to put a little humor in this, and that's a good thing for me.
