new bol kenmore tl washers - opinions?
We are moving to the US shortly and one of us is already there. We have a very limited budget for a washer, and I know that unless we get the absolute BOL washer, the dryer, which will be an absolute BOL Kenmore, will not match. We don't care about matching anyway.
Here are my final machines I have narrowed down to:
-Kenmore 20022, $400
-Hotpoint HSWP1000MWW - $350
-Hotpoint HSWP1200MWW - $400
-GE GTWP1800DWW - $470
-Whirlpool WTW8000XQ - $450
-Maytag MVWC200XW - $450
I've heard that the whirlpool and Maytag are almost the same, so I'd get the Maytag as it has more cycles. The Hotpoints and GE washer don't appear to have a pesky locking lid, and have a good old fashioned timer dial.
All are BD. From videos I've seen they all make a horrendous noise and are very loud: we're used to that.
I don't have enough money to spend any more. Would anyone suggest buying a used machine from 10 years ago or so?
Thanks in advance
