Lowes and HD have updated with their BF pricing and it's pretty meh. Not sure if it's the tariffs on steel or what, but nothing too great here:

I settled on a WTW7500GW @ Lowe's, we opted for model WED8540FW dryer instead of the matching "hamper" front unit so we could build a countertop over it, also has the steam feature with a water hookup. Wife didn't want another front load washer due to all the special maintenance they require.

Lowe's has the cheapest prices on the Whirlpool models and you can easily find a 10% coupon for them making it the cheapest. Some notes from our recent shopping for these Whirlpool's, specifically the washer:

- Regular non-holiday price was roughly high $800s
- Holiday sale prices were typically $680
- Additional $100 off discount for a pair putting the washer at $630 (saw this for one of the holiday sales)

So we waited for BF to see what they would offer, for Lowe's the low price of $624 and $50 Lowe's GC if you spend $400 or so or more on 2 appliances (more if you buy more appliances). Lowe's also has the 10% off coupon and 2% CB which makes it a no brainer saving an additional $160 or so.

I also found it interesting that HD forces you to buy some parts you may not need, like power cable and duct even if you have them, but that's shopping online. Lowe's seems to also be OK moving your old appliances and only charges $20 to haul them away vs other's who charge regardless if you have old appliances, but we'll see if that's really the case when they get here.

Speedqueen will absolutely last longer, but it will also wear your clothes much quicker. If your clothes get super dirty, then it is probably worth the drawback. If you want to wash comforters and bedding at home, then Speedqueen isn't the best option, too small. In addition, you can buy two sets of washers and dryers, like the Costco $1000 whirlpool 7500s for the price of a set of Speedqueens. Also, Speedqueens are not bulletproof by any means. They are just built like the old style washers, which has its own set of pros and cons. The 2018 Speedqueens also changed their agitator, so it's not nearly as strong of a performer with heavy clothing. It makes no sense, when that is what built your brand identity.
I urge anyone in the market for a W/D to look at Speedqueen. When I was in the market about 3 years ago I was replacing a 15 year old washer. I was floored that modern day W/D are designed to only last 5-7 years. I was disappointed that people started buying them for a lot of bells and whistles and looks instead of functionality and durability. After a lot of searching I decided to go with a Speedqueen because I wanted something that would last and would actually clean clothes. I agree with everything you said except that I think they are a lot gentler on clothes then people think. I haven't had any of mine wear out any faster and they definitely clean a lot better. The reason is because you can still fill a full tub of water so while there is an agitator, the water allows the clothes to flow with it. It doesn't rip the clothes because it just flows with the water. The longevity and durability of the Speedqueen washers is also well known with units lasting 20 years. They're still made in American with metal gears. They are definitely the best deal as you'd likely replace another brand two or three times by the time your Speedqueen konks out. I've since convinced two other people I know to get them and they love theirs as well. I advise people to either get the Speedqueens or a really cheap one like an Amana or something like that. At least it will still be more likely to outlast a Samsung and if it does break down at least you didn't spend too much on it. Unfortunately from what I understand they did change their washers for 2018 and a lot of people are not happy with the changes. I haven't looked into what changes they made.

So is this really it, or do we anticipate better deals? Need a washer/dryer - plagued by indecision. . . .

I had a Fisher Paykel washer that lasted 10+ years when I sold the house it was in, and many people had issues in 5-7 years with it. I think one of the major problems is how people treat them. When people jam every last bit of space full of clothing, it overworks the washer. There needs to be room for water. The agitator in the speedqueens will prevent a load packed tighter than a frogs hind end. They are also smaller capacity, so people are ok with doing multiple loads.

I am happy to hear that you are an advocate for Speedqueen. You sound like the type of consumer that cares about the product they use, and that's awesome. The problem is there is a new design and lots of chatter about it. Here is one of the discussions [houzz.com] on the new Speedqueens. People might want to look for a gently used 2017 or earlier if they are interested in Speedqueen.

At least 4 cu feet. Mine fits in our 4.5 cu feet washer, but I still prefer to take it to the laundromat when it needs washed. I throw it in one of the giant machines and just watch netflix for an hour or so.

Longevity can definitely depend on the consumer as well. However, there's no denying that a majority of the washing machines made now aren't built for longevity anymore with cheaper materials being used or over complicated designs.

You're absolutely right on the new Speedqueens. Makes me sad as I can't really blindly recommend them anymore. There is a lot of backlash on it so maybe they'll change them back soon. I'm still not even clear what the issue is.

how did i do?
Pretty poor, you should go on youtube and look up samsung washers, there are thousands of videos of them failing within 5-6 years. With no chance of repair.

With 10% off coupon, 2-4% cash back, and lowes rebates (I got $600 for buying 6) they aren't that bad. Only thing was some of the models I preferred were backordered (but HD has them)
