Need help choosing a new front load washer (and dryer)

louietouieSeptember 7, 2011

I have just entered into the confusing world of choosing a new washer and dryer. My focus is to get the best front loader washer that won't mold (what's that about anyway!), isn't going to require repair 3 months out, and will clean our cloths well in a normal cycle in less that 90 minutes without using tons of water. I hope a quality dryer companion will go with it.

Should I instead consider a top load to get what I want?

Having access to only apartment washer and dryer for years, I am excited to not have to share any more. Help me figure this out. Please!

Love love love my LG. I bought it from Sears Outlet store so it was half off the full price, just with a few nicks and they have us the blue touch-up paint for that.

We got a steam set, didn't want or need it but we loved the deep blue color and it was exactly what we wanted, just with steam. I tried the steam and it doesn't do much.

But definitely check out the outlet stores for better deals, and LG is the way to go!

Oh, to prevent mildew and mold, leave the door and the detergent drawer open for a day or two after the laundry is done so it fully dries. No stinkies.
