|I never will understand the Neptune thing, I thought they were pretty good machines - I also don't mind servicing them even now if opportunity arises - I bought one new in 1999 and used it for over 10 years with absolute zero problems. Obviously me being who I am kept the machine current with little tweaks, but had no problems that became the demise of the design.
To this day, I fail to see how they are any different than the machines we are servicing today in terms of Door Boot failure or Expensive Electronic controls - these traits seem common with all front load designs and are really due to user behaviors regarding water Temp, Additive use and common sense maintainence.
How come other manufacturers are not involved in Class Actions for these same reasons ?
And how 'bout some of those brilliant design decisions like sealing a drain pump cleanout deep in the belly of a stacked laundry pair placed in a closet or alcove - a simple, probable task becomes a half day job with a couple of people and a monkey to re-install the units; to throw salt in the wound, they actually make the front panel look exactly like units they made in the past that had a simple lower access panel - the job could be performed in maybe 30 minutes.
The manufacturers should be forced to reduce the scrapping of their products within a certain length of time by making them feesibly repairable.
Can Ye spare some 'cutter me brutha ?
