I have come to consult the Samurai and his master Appliantologists. My friend, no really this is for a friend, is in need of a new washer and dryer. Are there particular brands that are better than others or does it really depend on the model? She is looking for a full size, side by side set. Also, should she be looking for a front loader or a top loader? I tried looking for an FAQ and did a couple of searches to see if this has been asked before, but I did not find anything. Your wisdom is greatly appreciated!

With respect,

John

Whirlpool/KItchenAid/Roper/Estate top load washer, and dryer with the lint filter on the top. The simpler the better, and make sure the washer is a Direct  Drive.

The L.G. Washers/dryers or the Staber top load horizontal axis washer, and they have dryers to match also.  Go to   http://www.staber.com  to read about these.  The L.G. can be seen at Best Buy and others I would assume.   http://www.lge.com

Hi Peggi and others,

Thanks for the help so far. As it turns out she is only looking for a washer. The short list contains 4 Kenmore washers (I'm not sure who really makes these models). If you have any comments on them it would also be appreciated:

Sears item # 02626882000 Mfr. model #26882

Sears item # 02626852000 Mfr. model #26852

Sears item # 02624962000 Mfr. model #24962

Sears item # 02626862000 Mfr. model #26862

TIA,

John

I do not have the foggiest as would need the model number off the unit to see who made it.  The first 3 numbers, on the tag on the unit,  are the source code. However if it is a top loader would assume it is made by Whirlpool.  If it is a front loader, well could be Frigidaire, or others, do not know for sure.  With the Kenmore name on it she will have to have all warranty work done by Sears. Others here who do warranty for Sears will be able to help you with the numbers you provided perhaps, as they know more what these would go to.

Thanks again...

From your ealier post then: a Whirlpool (re-badged as a kenmore) top loader with direct drive will be my recommendation to her.

Yes, and the simpler the better.  Stay away from the Elite with the nightmare of hoses and more to break.  The model number should start with 110. which stands for Whirlpool Laundry.
