Gentle clothes care - Whrilpool, Elux, Maytag, Samsung?
Now that Miele is out of the running, we're back at square one. One of the things that attracted us to Miele aside from reliability is that it's supposed to take really good care of your clothes. I've looked at Consumer Reports and washerdryerinfo.com, and they seem to have conflicting information about which brands and models are the most gentle on clothes. Since this is probably the top factor for us, I'd really like to get some more solid information about it.
I think Whirlpool, Electrolux, Maytag and Samsung are the brands we'd most likely be looking at. Front loaders only.
