Hello fellow bloggers~
Ever since we found out we would be purchasing a new home, I have been thinking about my new washer & dryer. My dh told me we could get a new set when we bought a house. So I've been researching all the major brands, trying to find the best deal, the best quality, for our situation/needs/finances.
Yet it seemed all the major brands had very mixed reviews. I was thinking about a front loading machine, 'cause they are 'the latest thing' and so they *must* be the best, right?! Not necessarily, so learns I....
Just recently, my wonderful dh stopped in a small, local appliance store and began talking with a sales lady about our situation. She told him that the lower priced front loaders (mind you, by lower price, we're still talking at least $1200.00 - not exactly chump-change!) would simply wear out on us too quickly, especially with how much use ours would get. great.
Since we can't afford the *really* expensive front loaders (over $2000), she instead recommended a brand called Speed Queen. Ever heard of them? Nope, me neither. Yet she gave GLOWING reports, talking about how long they lasted, what a great warranty they came with, how big they are and how well they clean.
So I got on-line to check 'em out. Sure enough, glowing reports! I couldn't find ONE negative review. So it's not front-loading.....who cares?!? We have a well, so we don't pay for water. The cycle is faster than a front-loader, so we'll pay less for electricity. Yes, the dryer cycle will be a bit longer, but the reviews on the dryer are fabulous as well. I'm thinking we'll be in good shape~
SO ANYWAY......has anyone heard of this brand? What do you have to say about it? Does anyone currently own one? What can you tell me about it? I'm actually *looking* for some negative reviews, I can't find any!!
Either way, I'm gonna have a new washer & dryer....... in our new home.......... in our new family laundry room!!
