I have a matching samgsung washer and dryer. It's almost 2 years old. I wonder if it will blow the back off of the house?

The dryer fucking sucks too. I shit you not, it took close to 4 hours to dry a fucking comforter the other day, because it has all this safety bullshit on it. Even if you set it for timed drying, it monitors the temp and humidity and will shut off when it "thinks" it's done. Guess what, fucker, it wasn't done. I knew we should've just bought the cheap shit again. The first set lasted almost 13 years.
uhh now u have me worried..i didn't go with the pre-wash one, but still got a samsung combo all electronic and what not.. still waiting to move into my new house, maybe home depot will do an exchange for another brand for me..

more concerned about the dryer sucking than the washer exploding..

They make all in one units, and like most things that can do "everything", they're not really good at doing anything. At least the 2 or 3 we've used in various vacation condos weren't all that great. Good space savers, but we ended up using it as a washer only and hanging our clothes on the balcony, because we're white trash and don't give a shit.

Yeah, I'll start with the ones that are over 100years old. They clearly are out of style!

Apparently some of you all haven't seen some of the fancy new top load washers which have just as much electronics as the front loads.
We have a front load washer and dryer that was floor models at Lowe's. We got both plus the bases so you don't have to bend over for almost 50% off retail . We actually had to have the dryer worked on when we got it because it had some overheat fuse that was bad from the get go. As for the washer it has a cleaning cycle and as long as you shut the door but don't latch it complety it air dries and has no mold or smell. It can suck if you forget to toss an item but for the first like 5 mins of the cycle you can pause it and add more stuff.

Did this recently at a hotel in FL, they were not joking about that little sign next to the door saying not to do that. Got a knock on the door and a nice man asking us to remove the towels and bathing suits from the rails. I thought it was funny, the gf whose name the room was in did not.

The fix is to add a sticker saying to wash bulky items in delicate or it could hurt you?

My Mom has a Kenmore top loader from back in the 70s. I've replaced the belt twice now since she got it in the 90s from my grandfather. Damn thing still works just fine. When she gets rid of it I'll grab it and bring it down to Texas. It will probably still be working 20 years from now.

Yep, my super duper front load is 16 years old. Motor blew 7 years ago.

Almost called my contacts at NASA for help, but I was stuck without a Sat phone.

Turns out those things are just a shell with a single control board, and *mostly* the usual mechanical/motor parts!

Fawk me! who knew?

Replaced the motor. $120. 16 years and counting.....

Thanks for posting this. I hadn't registered mine so I wasn't notified.

My choices are to have some reinforcements installed plus one year added to the warranty or they will give me $500 toward the purchase of another Samsung washer OR $400 toward the purchase of a non-Samsung washer.

I opted for the fix and warranty extension. So far this unit has been great so may as well keep it.

I still have my first front loader which is probably 7 years old at this point. I was the highest end Maytag made at the time. I am not sure I would get another one but really that would be up to the wife. I hate having to take it apart every so often to clean it out so it doesn't stink. Sure it's not that big a deal, but I never once had to pull apart my top loader. I also don't think it cleans as well as my old washer. The only thing I like about it is that I can wash certain things I couldn't wash before because it doesn't have an agitator.

I have 3 rental houses that all have cheap top loaders with matching dryers I bought off CL. I payed anywhere from $100-150 for each set and they are all still going strong and who knows how many years they had on them before I got them. I wouldn't even dream of putting front loaders in a rental property even if they were given to me. I think that says a lot.

My Wife was the only reason I got my front loader. It was "the new thing". Yeah, new thing to blow money on.

When mine malfunctioned, to her GREAT dismay, I fucking fixed it for a bill instead of going shopping for the latest bling, blowing another grand.

From 2001, no stink issues. Some mold forms on the seal.

Rule of thumb: front load washer: door stays open after load, front dryer: door stays closed.

We use white vinegar instead of fabric softener and half the soap. No mold ever.

Hmm. I never use fabric softener, but that's a good tip.

The new ones do cool things like 'half flush' for piss and have some power valve thing for 'power' flushing I just know you could put a bowling ball in them and that thing would flush it LOL!
First off, your replacing low flow (front loader/HE washer/dryer) toilet with a regular unit (top loader/low tech) is this exact conversation that is being had.

Secondly....very very very little has changed in terms of a toilet and how it works. And parts to maintain a toilet are exceptionally cheap with very little ever going wrong.
