The thing is, many of the manufactures have great machines, but they may have a specific model that just sucked. And sometimes the next version of the model is better, sometimes its not. So its really hard to say this brand is better than that brand. Wascomat had a crossover that would blow bearings, Maytag had a early version of their current soft mount that was a MHN25 I think and that thing sucked. Out of balance issues and tons of problems. But both of these brands have improved those models since then. There a ton of examples like this. So it’s impossible for me to say this brand is better than that brand, cause I don’t know what model, year, version or size you are looking at.
