On buying washers and dryers best rule is "keep it simple stupid" The more bells and whistles the more issues...

Thank you all...on further reflection, we are not going stackable, we will be using full size side by side, front loader only...

Thank you again...I wasn't getting updates via email, so I hadn't realized there were responses.

Thank's ya'll...any thoughts around Samsung W/D? The models I'm looking at are DV330AGW (Dryer) and WF330ANW (Washer)...thanks!

And they ALL have way more bells n whistles than the 20 plus year old W/D we have now...

lol...can't go top load...putting a countertop across them...what i meant by "in terms of value" was "not the cheapest...but best overall for the buck".
