But I do wipe the door and seal and leave the door slightly ajar until dry. The machines are located in the basement on a concrete floor, so I can't speak to the vibration issue although I suspect they would be 'noisy' if mounted on a surface that was not concrete. And actually, I would worry more about leaking if they were located in any other part of the house.

Thinking about buying a high-efficiency top loader that does not have an agitator. What do you think about those?

I've never even considered buying one, but I'm sure that's because I'm a "victim" of my age. I had the old agitator-style and owned that set for 25 years...loved it! The new set has been good mechanically, but considering I paid close to $2k for the set, I was a little disappointed and all I can say about it is "meh..."

I don't want to be disappointed again with the newest technology. I just want a reliable set that has a lot fewer settings and that gets my clothes clean. I guess my needs are pretty simple .

My friend bought a Neptune set (Maytag) and experienced the same thing...nothing but problems. It was so bad that there was a class action lawsuit filed and finally settled. Horrible machine!
