Its just a beefed up looking Whirlpool. Though I do like the look of them.

The Italian whirlpool line-up has that aesthetic line since early 2010 I think, could be a little earlier than that but I really don't pay attention to Whirlpool machines.

You wanna be looking at the "maytasko" as they've been dubbed! Lovely machines!

Mr King will vouch for that!

i wonder if the drum is screwed or sealed, this model is suppose to have a auto dosing detergent draw where u can set how much detergent and softner to use at a time.

Bauknecht in Maytag disguise. Expect lower quality than other machines in it's price range. Bauknecht has a bad reputation in Germany and the Netherlands. You would think that over the years that they would get their act together, but no such things. The newer Bauknechts still have problems. And be prepared for a noisy machine, Bauknechts have always been much noisier than the other German brands.

There also seems a problem with the side panels of the newer machines. A lot of customers are complaining about rattling during the spin. Whirlpool has installed extra panels on some machines to deal with this. Apparently they know of the problem and have a remedy for it. If only they would install them on the production line...

Louis, vibrating side panels were a problem with the earliest Duets like the one I had.

Now a question: Who made the Maytag FLs that were sold in in the UK several years ago? Thanks.

The Maytag frontloaders sold in the UK years ago (like Mike has) were made by Asko. Different machines from different manufacturers from different countries. The only thing they had in common was the Maytag label.

Thanks, Louis. I knew it was a re-badge job, just not who was making them.
