I need a new Washing machine
Posted 04 June 2012 - 10:41 PM
1) No Eco Friendly junk, I want clean clothes, scr-w the environment! I'm sure washing clothes once with a good machine is better then washing 4 pair of jeans 5 times in an eco-friendly one
2) No Computerized anything
3) Large Stainless Steel tub, I have to wash my Carharts in it and I'd like to get more then one pair in at one time
To explain why these thing matter. My current machine is a Eco-friendly H.E. washer by GE. No matter how you wash clothes they tend to come out just as dirty as they went in, the loading sensors refuse to put enough water in the tub to clean, the agitator doesn't agitate it merely gently starts and stops every 30 seconds which does nothing to remove heavily soiled clothes (the only kind we have here), then to top it off the Magnetic "lid sensor" (what was wrong with a spring loaded plunger?) quit on me last week. Needless to say I've had enough and I'm tired of having to go to the laundromat (30 miles away) to actually get clean clothes.
In case you're wondering what I'm washing in this thing I'm a diesel mechanic and my dad is a farmer. You can figure out the rest.

That being said, there may still be a few dogs out there. I'd go to the local library and check an issue of Consumer Reports. They're usually pretty good. (Or check with someone who runs a local laundromat.)

There were safety issues, though.......

Over the years i have found no matter what kind of washing machine i used,If I used "Waterless Hand Soap" on my hubby's greasy jeans they ALWAYS came out clean.
Rub Waterless Hand Soap on the greasy spot's, let sit for a few minutes and then wash with whatever detergent you like.
It's dang near fool proof!!
and I'll add this as a just in caser...
Peroxide will take out blood stains, such as those that may be on your jeans because you wacked your knuckles on a wrench and then wiped them on your shirt or britches.
Wet bloodied item, pour some peroxide on the blood, again let set for a few minutes, then just wash as you would regularly.
I hope this helps....

Oh, for the good ole days....
There were safety issues, though.......
My fool cousin got his arm caught in the ringer of that type of washer and it left his arm horribly disfigured for life so I'll take your safety issue over his any day of the week and twice on Sunday

Here is another conversation on the subject on another forum that I am a member. (I hope no one minds the link.)

Gets clothes very clean, and spins them a lot dryer than any other washing machine I know. It must be on a very solid and stable surface as the spin cycle is incredibly fast. If you don't have such a surface, don't get it.
It is a top loader with side action like a front loader. It has a HUGE capacity, and yes, the drum is stainless steel. Inner drum is hexagonal shaped. As a bonus, it is water and energy efficient, and you use a LOT less detergent. In fact, when you first wash clothes in it that have been washed in other washers, don't put ANY detergent in it. The machine will use the detergent that stayed in the clothes from the previous washings. I am not kidding. It will get out the dirt AND the left over detergent. Of course, pretreating stubborn stains is a good idea under any circumstances.
