Whirlpool or Bosch - Washer and Dryer?

Posted by op80 (My Page) on

I have two sets of washing machines and dryers and can only keep one. I have no idea how to make this decision. Both are pretty old so I can't find much feedback on them. Anyone have an opinion about the following:

1. Whirlpool - Model SM 8525492, I believe it is roughly 6 or 7 years old. Top loader. Have had no problems with it.

2. Bosch Nexxt 500 plus series - front loading. Looks like it came out in 2007.


1. Whirlpool Imperial Series Dryer. Have had it for 7 years.

2. GE Five Cycle Automatic Dryer - don't know model

I just want to keep the ones that are going to last the longest. Would so appreciate some help.

Whirlpool - Model SM 8525492
You got that number off the machine's lid, yes? It's the part number of the lid, not the model number of the machine. The model tag is on the machine's top deck, hidden behind the lower edge of the lid ... hold the lid in a half open/closed position to see the tag.

The dryer model is on a tag seen when the door is open.

The serial numbers are coded with the year and week of manufacture.
