Not arguing any of your points. Just pointing out that if the Major manufacturers could still produce the older design units they probably would.. to some extent. I am just pointing out that a lot of the negative publicity the Front loaders get is from the consumers unwillingness to change the way they have washed for years. I have one of the front loaders with the worst public image out there and it is perfect. No odors, no mold. My brothers is one of the best rated. Smells like old sox. and no matter what I tell him, he will continue to use the liquid detergent, full cup (its easier). He tells me he has a lemon because it smells and has had to replace two pumps. (I did one visiting, more change in it then you need to cross the George Washington bridge) but his machine is a lemon. Tell someone they have to change oil every 3000 miles and treat there imported leather seats with sweat from a camel on there new 50k car, no problem. Tell them to clean the "Gack" (professional term used in the industry) in the front filter brushes on there front loader they caused by using 4 times the amount of soap they should use and didn't empty little Jimmy's pockets of his snot tissues and they go on a tirade about how they will not accept having to do this after every other load or so, they just spent 800 dollars on this unit and it's not fair. Can you do any better on the bill, no, OK, can you brake this 100, oh yea, next time you come to my home, can you please use the service entrance and don't park so close to my lexus........all this said, I still have my vintage LAT top loader washer and dryer set in the garage with a tarp on them. It is my version of a 56 Chevy or an old Harley. 1/4 horse motor, straight 50/50 valve and an extra rinse to top it off. Might not ever use it again, but I wont throw it out either.
