LG 4801 CW Washer
Ok, so.... after days and days of deliberation etc.. bit the bullet and bought a new washer.
No internal heater as it was $150 more for that model.
Have no 220v so a used Miele was not an option.
I currently own a first gen GE Harmony and have grown to love it!
This 4801 model by LG looks to be virtually the same unit.
In an ideal situation the heated model would have been a smarter choice, but economics rule and I'm just happy to be getting a new washer.
I was paying over $125 for a yearly warranty contract and didn't want to continue doing that.
Cost at Home Depot was $499.
I wasn't able to find a used Harmony on CL for much less, so for ME it was the best choice.
Will update my post in a few weeks when the unit is delivered.
If anyone knows which cycles use the MOST water besides the obvious bulky cycle, please share. Thanks!
