Loaded question: Good all around washer/dryer on the market today
I used to post here all the time back in the early 00s when I bought an original FriGEmore triplet set (Kenmore version). I am also one of those folks that game up with the bearing replacement procedure that was advertised pretty heavily in many appliance repair forms for repairing them for the infamous bearing failures (I'm the bearing guy).
ANYHOW, question to ask:
I've been out of the laundry "scene" for some time and we're looking to purchase a new set. There are so many new FLs on the market, I have a really hard time figuring out where to start. I've been browsing this forum again a bit lately and I'm really not sure what to make of some of the comments.
I want something with a capacity that is large enough to comfortably wash a queen size bed spread and king size duvet cover. I don't want something that has a horrible reliability reputation (like the early Neptunes and bearing failures on my sets). I also want something that has a gas dryer option and PREFERABLY a dryer that will rotate both ways to lesson the chances of clothes tangling into a ball/getting wrapped up in each other. Stackable is nice, but not a deal breaker, as would be a wrinkle remover for the dryer.
Where should I look hard and close? The Koreans like LG/Samsung? The new Electroluxes? I really have no clue as to what the "consensus" is for a good all around set nowdays and I would really appreciate input!
