The great washing machine hunt is frustrating me. Tried to track down info on WFW9xHEX whirlpool duets per scottthewolf, but can't find anything in our area under $1K or without steam, and no positive review data. Perhaps these models are too new to find much info.

I do want to thank everyone for their help. Have to make a decision ASAP, as the old Frigidaire is now so loud the Border Collies race to hide under the beds when it starts spinning 'cause they thinks it's a massive thunderstorm. :)

ALSO, at least Ford didn't pay people to keep their safetey defects a secret, like Toyota did.

Actually, they did. I refer you again to the 95 Ford Windstar. Incidentally, we bought the Windstar to replace an 89 Mercury Sable wagon totaled in a head-on collision with a Bronco. I was doing 25mph (the speed limit), the kid in the Bronco was doing 75mph, in our lane on a blind corner. My MIL and I survived because my Sable protected us. I liked my Sable, despite quality issues which cost us some big bucks. Ford lost us as customers because of the deceitful, dishonest, disgraceful way they handled their epic engineering fail with the Windstar.

One other thing, and alot of people fail to see the big picture, If your Toyota is made in the USA and Toyota's in Japan, the profits go to JAPAN, NOT USA!

The profits go to the stockholders. How many of the major stockholders of Ford, Chevy, etc., reside in the USA? At least the assembly of my Toyota provided wages to workers here. In the big picture, because we drive reliable vehicles, we have more money available to support our local economy. I am in complete agreement with you that whenever possible, we should 'buy American'. Where we diverge is that I don't believe in rewarding any company for producing an inferior product when they should and could be making the best in the world.

wrong. The old generation of Duets were made in Germany, the new generation of Duets are made in Clyde, Ohio, USA. The old generation of Duets had their problems. The new generation are direct drive, just like the LGs.

Are there any specific model #'s you can suggest? One's without steam, which frankly, I just don't see any great advantage to.

I dislike all front load washers and all top load washers that don't have an agitator. I would at least buy a Whirlpool Duet front load washer because they are made in the USA by a company in the USA. I am against LG because they are a Korean company and their parts and service stink.

Scott; I was doing a little more research into the Whirlpool Duets, and found they are not made in the USA, they are made in a whirlpool factory in Germany. This seems to apply only to the Duets.
