Costco Whirlpool Deal or a Speed Queen?
My washing machine is now leaking again. I repaired it last year for $130 (same problem). The washing machine is an old Maytag and it could be 20-28 years old. It was my mom's before they gave it to me. It's at least 20 years old. I don't want to repair it again. I also just want a basic washer not a front loader.
I have been looking at either a Whirlpool from Costco or a Speed Queen. I hear lots of good things about Speed Queens in terms of being a long-lasting quality product. But I have not heard much about how they perform though. Are they gentle on clothes? Do they extract water properly at the end of they cycle? etc?
Here is a deal I am considering at Costco:
3.2 CuFt 8 Cycles
Super Capacity Porcelain Basket
3 Temperature Selections
Item # 133030
Shipping & Handling included as well as a two year in-home warranty.
$50 coupon reflected in price.
Valid May 11, 2007 through July 8, 2007
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
