New VerticalModularWasher by Whirlpool.

7 posts in this topic

Good Day Yall!

 

6 years ago I rebuilt my Stateroom (bedroom) on my house boat & installed a Frigidaire front load washer & dryer under the bed at the footer.  Only ones back then I would trust & they have been good.

  God forbid they break down because ill have to take a week off taking the damn thing apart LOL.  Now personally I think L.G. (god forgive me) front load bottom of line (no Steam) is a pretty good washer & easy to repair.

Any way got hold of ,

for free a VMW washer for my moms house & I dont think They clean good.

  Im still testing it but if you use powder, i.e. oxiclean some clothes still had it on them like they never got wet or wet enough?    I am going to try to test it some more (hate to get rid of a FREE washer) but I am real close to go buy an LG.  I perspire a lot so if my clothes are not rinsed WELL , I will & have had previously a soap burn, worse than a sunburn. At least the Fisher Paykel have a recirculating pump these do not.

 

Any one has any input it would be welcome.   What do you think? what is your personal experience? Does any Tech. out there own one?  These  machines are a joke, noisy, clothes come out twisted.  Damn do I miss the old direct drive!

 

And remember!  when you drink ...drive fast & take chances!  (my version of "break a leg")

  Piece of junk. Many failures on this design but then, there are tons of them out there. The low water usage is due to government regulations so no getting away from that I guess. The only decent top loader nowadays are the Speed Queen models ($800) but they also have dumbed down water level and water temperature control.

I remember the instructor at factory training actually apologizing when the VMW design was introduced.  We're selling mostly top load washer and servicing almost every single one while still in first year warranty.  Still better than the GE but I'm starting to prefer the Fisher Pakel for serviceability and reliability over the Wpl VMW.  I guess it's not the end of the world but you can see it from here.

Vmw washers are trash. I agree with pduff, I would rather work on a fisher paykel.
