I am seriously beginning to believe something in our house does not like us and didn't like the people before us or before them...but seriously....there is something that eats light bulbs and appliances and it is becoming so stressful!
We blow through light bulbs at an incredible rate and we have replaced several vacuums and 2 dishwashers, it is crazy. Now, my wonderful, well loved Maytag Neptune Washer took a turn for the worse and according to the repairman...has died.
Well, what was said is the Maytag is now made by Whirlpool and the part I need is no longer made without purchasing a new tub ensemble and the cost for that is over $700....new washer time! I had buying washers and we are to old to do the used washer game where every year or so you are carting an old one out and new one in!
I know many people hated the Neptune, but ours is over 10 years old and until Friday, we have never had one problem with it at all! As a front loader the seal never leaked, it never smelled bad or took on mold because I followed the instructions to give it a bleach bath monthly. It never had the gurggly sound in it I have heard so many talk about and next to my JC Penny model we purchased when we got married, it was amazing!
Now, I have to purchase a new one and with all the technology available and reviews on line, this is stressful. My sales person told me not to purchase LG because while they are amazing, she said it can take months to get parts. GE is made in America and right now not one person I have spoken with likes GE and that saddens me.
I read hundreds of reviews about the Kenmore Elite and sadly, there were more negative reviews than positive reviews and that saddens me with Kenmore once being a brand many homeowners would ONLY purchase.
Samsung has good reviews and the best is Electrolux.
When you are spending the type of money they are asking for appliances now, it is very stressful to me.
It would be wonderful if I could just do a PR on one and not have to pay, kind of like a test drive!
Any suggestions from my readers?
