Title: Today's washing machines reliable or junk?
Post by: ron3033 on April 27, 2022, 04:29:07 PM
Hi all

What washing machines are most reliable today?   My 21 year old Kenmore series 90 may be toast as I cannot assess if I need more then the transmission (drive block, clutch  etc.... in addition to trans.)  350 worth of parts plus shipping for all 3 parts.

Looked at new units....  sure are tinny and pricey.

General electric any good?   GE Adora 27-inch 4.9 (IEC) Cu. Ft. Top Load Washer with Stainless Steel Drum in White
Model # GTW495DMNWS

Whirlpool  ??       Whirlpool 4.4 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with Soaking Cycles in White
Model # WTW4855HW

any suggestions if I cannot fix mine?
thanks  ron3033

The ONLY washer I tell people to buy is Speed Queen model TC5003. it has an old fashioned transmission like the coin operated Speed Queen. It is a water saver but has an option to fill to a full tub wash. 5 year warranty. Pricey but worth it.
