FL pair that's good quality but budget friendly?

Posted by clubcracker (My Page) on

We are buying a home out of state and leaving our Bosch laundry pair behind, as the dryer is gas and we won't have gas where we're we included the pair in the sale.

I like the Bosch set (500 Nexxt washer about 5 years old, and 500 ??? Steam dryer about 1 year old), but they were pretty expensive and I was only able to buy them one at a time without stressing out my budget (lived with the old Maytag dryer till last year when I got the steam dryer).

I am open to suggestions for what to buy in the new house. Needs to be an electric dryer. I like a FL washer, steam/sanitary cycle, and I would love to have one that has just a rinse/spin cycle if possible.

I'd like not to break the bank (maybe under $1500 for a pair?) or, if I'm going to break the bank, I'd like to be able to think the set will last more than 5 years or so.

Are there any sales coming up I should know about? I'll need something fairly soon in November but could probably wait a couple of weeks if there are good deals coming.

We do about 5 loads of laundry per week - 3 people, 2 large dogs, and we wash our own comforters, blankets etc. fairly frequently due to allergies.

I think the Bosch Vision is better than Nexxt and they are being liquadated on ebay and brick & mortar stores.

I think you can get the Vision 500 pair for under $1500.

I paid $575 for my 500DLX delivered but on ebay the best price at the moment is $860 for the washer and $960 for the dryer but one of the cheaper dealers/liquadatores could add one tomorrow.

I read they are rated for 3000 loads. At 5 loads per week that is 11.5 years. My 500 DLX has sanitary and rinse/spin cycle.
