Washing machine that's 27" or less deep?
We moved into a home with a Sears Kenmore front-loading (model: 417.44102300). It was nicely built into an area of finished basement. Of course, the bearing and spider arm broke w/in a year of our living here. (Some web research reveals this is a common problem stemming from the placement of 2 parts of different metals against each other: One corrodes the other. More poor quality crap from China!) We were told the fix would be more expensive than a new model so we decided to purchase another. The trouble is all the new models are 30" deep or more, which is almost 4" deeper than the old model. We can't go any deeper in this space without knocking down walls. I understand appliance manufacturers are responding to demand for larger capacity machines but are there really zero alternatives for those of us with smaller finished spaces? We need a machine that is 27D x 27W x 36"H.
Love to know what solutions people have found.
