Our Kenmore 15113 has been...troubling us a lot lately. Just a couple months ago we had a new control board and control panel put in because sometimes it would start on its own and sometimes it would just randomly stop in the middle of a cycle. While it was under warranty and still is (thank god), the problem came back about a month ago.

Now considering more things about it...cycle times...capability and capacity, I want to take a step back and get a nice used vintage one.

Yes the post on the Imperial forum was a teaser! Out of all the options I'm not sure which one to get. I really want to get the vintage Inglis, but I'm afraid about the part availability for it.

Similar picture to a listing i found: The Kenmore model is a power wash unit (with push in buttons with left and not touch pads)

I like the black KitchenAid.  It may be a model with the "Ultrawash" and/or soil sensor system -- very capable.

Would be your best bet.  Next would be the Inglis.

Looks like...the KA is no longer available :(
Super sad when i found that out, but this now leaves a couple more options too!
The Inglis is my main priority now, Another Inglis which is newer features the Soil Settler wash system which is also an option (The whirlpool version in the OP is NLA as well)
A Whirlpool PowerClean (white) is also now available with the touchpad.
A Kenmore Ultra Wash with the timer (Powerclean - white - with the tower) is still an option too
A Maytag Performa (Jetclean)
And lastly a Point Voyager KA.

My goal is to get the Inglis sometime during the weekend.

Get The KM DW with the timer

How come the timer model instead of the digital model from Whirlpool? (If its due to the timer model being more reliable I agree)
