My husband and I have owned a Maytag Neptune (front loader) for about 15 years, since around the time they first came out. MEH3000?
This one has had its share of issues over the years that we've had to deal with - no biggie. The other day, started acting weird. Intermittantly....In the middle of the 3 rinse cycles - it'll pause and just sit there. It's almost like the dial is stuck. I've done the usual checks and experiments....it's soo intermittant that I'm not sure I really care to dig any deeper for a problem (nor do I want to put money into it). It's 15 years old.....
So, been thinking about (and researching) getting another front loader. NOT a Maytag Neptune, unless they've proven to have 100+% reliability ratings, I won't even consider it.
I have a Maytag Neptune dryer that's matched to the 3.3cu feet washer.
So ironically, I wanna go atleast that big or bigger. I'm figuring I'll end up spending another $1000 on one of these things.... same price the Neptune was 15 years ago.
There's sooo many different ones out there now..... there are a lot of mold complaints. I'm not sure I'm gonna worry about that too much - because for the last 15 years on my Neptune, I simply left the door open after every load to let the inside dry out. I've never had any mold in there...ever.
Whatta ya got? Or do you recommend anything? Right now...I'm a blur.
Thanks for your help!
