Washer died, need a new one -- advice needed!
If I have to go to the laundromat one more time I will go crazy. $5.25 a cycle to shred my bras to bits!
But I digress. Decided on a top loader, as I have 4 kids and 2 stepkids. Most of them do their own laundry and I highly doubt any of them would wipe down a FL, much less leave the door open to dry. I had settled on the LG Wave series with the 4.7 cubic inch tub. I've read fairly positive reviews here and other places, but my husband isn't thrilled with its reviews on amazon (his bible.)
The other options are a Kenmore Elite (which I believe is made by LG) or a Samsung TL. Local appliance repair shops advise me to stay away from both LG and Samsung b/c it's hard to get parts and most of them don't know how to repair a Korean model.
I have local access to Sears, Best Buy, Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.
Going on 3 weeks without a washing machine in an 8-person household! Any advice/reviews welcome.
