I like our Cabrio. It's a top loader, but doesn't have an agitator to rip the clothes to shreds.

I have known people who got faulty ones and didn't like it, but we've had pretty good luck with ours and we've had it for oh.... 4 years now, I think.

We're moving and sold our old set with the house so I've been doing LOTS of research. This is what we ordered: Samsung - 3.9 Cu. Ft. 13-Cycle High-Efficiency Steam Washer & 7.4 cu. ft. Capacity Front Load Electric Steam Dryer. The new ones are soo fancy - like buying a car: lots of sizes and colors. Price ranges for a new set were $1800-$4,000+. These are in the middle at ~$2800 including the pedestals.

I just bought a LG WT5001CW because I constantly add clothes to a washer and I didn't want a front loading one where that couldn't happen. <smile> I bought this at the HHGregg at Brier Creek - had a great experience with them and their rapid delivery. Bought on Thursday - delivered on Saturday.

I bought this LG over some other models because:
1) decent price (compared to some crazy $$ models)
2) it is super quiet (2nd floor LR)
3) the spinning does not cause excess vibration
4) it does NOT tear up clothes or permanently crease clothes due to its spin. I do find I have to shake my cotton t-shirts prior to drying so that the creases have a chance to unravel and dry

Prior to that, I had purchased my washing machine (awhile ago) at Jeffrey's appliance -- they are also great. What I like about Jeffrey's is that when you need a repair person -- you can call them and they'll give you folks that they recommend. I would recommend looking there if you want a 'local' store that will back their products. They also did a rapid delivery when I needed a new washer about 8 yrs ago.

I am crossing my fingers that this LG holds up and I don't *need* a repair person!
