We just bought one of these high efficiency washers and I’m completely dissatisfied. I think this is due to the same reason many of you must love them (witness their popularity), and that it uses hardly any water but seeming a boatload of electricity in comparison.
Is this because in many states, electricity is dirt cheap (basically underpriced) and water is overpriced?
I’m in the northeast where we have the 2nd highest electric rates in the country. Water is cheap.
I’m aghast that a load of laundry takes nearly an hour (due to the feeble dragging through a small puddle of water) instead of sloshing around in a drum for 15 minutes. Do you people spend all weekend doing laundry? Or did we just get stuck with a defective POS (it’s a Whirlpool Cabrio).
