What are your recommendations for friends and family who want to buy a new current model year washer from the local big box store?

Top Load

Maytag MVWP575GW

Front Load Compact

Miele WWH860 WCS

Large Front Load



Bonus the Speed Queen option

Speed Queen LFN50RSP115TW01 Front Load.

And how different is the LFN50RSP115TW01 versus 2017 series SQ AFNE washer is is a solid washer for home use?

If money weren't an issue I'd recommend 240V machines from Europe like Miele (Little Giant), Asko, or Bosch.  I've been using Euro washers for 21 years, love them.

Dealers for 240 volt

Thanks. Where do you buy 240 volt from? And how do you get set up for 240 volt 50 hertz? power?

I have a 240 volt dryer outlet that could be converted but I'd need 60 Hz In to 50 Hz Out frequency converter. I've always wanted a 240 volt water kettle in my kitche too and have the 240 volts but would need the right outlet and 50 hertz.

Mine are 240V 60hz.  Asko's are all 240V, Bosch's too.  You can buy Bosch at Lowes (or at least here anyway) and Asko is usually at an upper end appliance dealer as well as Miele.  Regular residential Miele machines are 120V but the Little Giants are 240.  My Miele plugs into a dryer outlet since my dryer is gas.


Little Giants are expensive....

Asko's are a little cheaper, but not sure about reliability of these new ones built in  Slovenia.  Mine was built in Sweden.

Bosch is cheapest

I forgot about Blomberg...don't know anything about them though...but they are 240V
