It looks like it is about time to replace our almost-20-year-old Kenmore washer and dryer. I’ve been checking out the snazzy new front loaders and really like the idea of being able to do a load nearly double the size of our current washer with about a third of the water. But I’ve also seen some alarming things in some on-line reviews that I wouldn’t have thought of when shopping for a washer/dryer. (Washer doesn’t drain all the way and leaves clothes smelling mildewy; washer makes a lot of noise when spinning; dryer won’t shut off and gets so hot it just about sets the clothes on fire. That kind of stuff.)
So, anybody who has bought a new washer and dryer recently - what did you buy, and what do you like or not like about it?
