I have had my fair share of washer/dryer problems.I had the original Whirlpool washer the forerunner to the Cabrio. That plate washer machine. Holes in the clothes all the time,and lint all over my clothes. No matter what I washed,lint over all the clothes. I just gave up,gave the washer to my DD,for her new house. She said it washed great. The matching dryer,was awful. Had the repair man out every week fixing that dryer. I purchased both at Lowe's. Lowe's took back the dryer after the 14th call for repairs.
I had a washer front loader GE. It was a fabulous washer,but I had to ditch that washer too. I had to give it away. The house that I am living in now,the floor (1st floor)was not strong enough for the spinning. The machine would not spin the clothes. I was up all night trying to get the clothes to spin dry,and it wouldn't.
DH purchased me my Whirlpool washer agitator machine in 2008 and it is still going strong. Agitator machine is the only way to go. I have spent a fortune on washer/dryers that have been a big fat bust.
