We rarely…err…never do video reviews in our blog section, but how could we not when we saw this gem on YouTube by the folks at Wranglerstar? This one had it all – laughs, heartache (from an underperforming washer and dryer set) and crazy plot twists and revelations such as:
- High efficiency washers don’t get clothes clean
- High efficiency washers don’t use enough water
- “Hot” water wash cycles in some machines don’t always truly deliver hot water
- Those shiny, colorful units at the big box retailers may look great, but they often don’t last more than a couple years and lead to costly repairs
Like any great movie, our protagonists were at their limit – does anyone in America build high quality, durable laundry equipment anymore? But then…the revelation…maybe the brand most often seen toiling away in laundromats and on college campuses had an answer.
