Curious- if we could make the best washer today.
What would you use? I believe most parts are similar to one another they could be re engineered to make the best washer today.
First I would choose a whirlpool DD basket- I believe itís bigger than Maytag.
use a kitchen aid lower fin and kenmore upper triple action agitator.
I would use a maytag dependable tranny and a brushless motor from one of the old whirlpool duet.
I chose the Maytag tranny because I think it would be easier to control the strokes and speed of the agitator and I would think I could achieve higher Rpms in a maytag than a whirlpool tranny.
I would also use a maytag suspension system- they have always had a smooth spin.
Iím at a lost for a timer- maybe switch over to a computer base?
Iím up for debate of what you guys would think would make the best machines.
Ps. Could anyone build one?!

I know from reading your past posts you think very highly of the the Speed Queen Front Loaders.
I also know you've seen hundreds of Washers over the years-
In your opinion what makes the SQ FL the best Washers out there?
I like it as well but want to hear an experts opinion verses what is out there.

Well, about top loaders.... a giant magic chef would be awesome...
I's my competitor, but i love it (my boss hates when I say that)
I remember about 2 years ago, Martin telling me to buy one because it was impressively good.
Indeed, that washer really surprised me with the wash performance. i love that little washer with all my heart (forget the normal cycle exists), i just wish it was 3x bigger
And also it is nearly 2 years old and works like a charm, even after moving from Dallas to L.A. almost upside down on the back seat/trunk or a Honda Fit.
As soon as I can I'll buy the 2.2 cu ft model, but I'd really love to see a 4.0 cu ft reaching the market.
