We need to replace ours with something with more capacity. Anyone have any good suggestions? Thanks in advance.

You mean a permanently stacked washer & dryer (aka "laundry center") or maybe a separate front load washer which can have a dryer stacked on top of it?

For a laundry center, either Whirlpool or Frigidaire might be a good choice. The GE unit looks to be a re-branded Frigidaire unit although depending on the exact model, the dryer part may be a GE design.

Maytag make their own in both top and front loading washer designs although they look to be a little more expensive. The top loading washer models do however look to be Maytag's "Dependable Care" washer design (that Maytag is famous for - in a good way) which is something in their favor. JFYI

I don't know a comparison of load size, you'll have to check that out yourself. BTW. Be aware during your comparisons that there are both 24" and 27" wide models available.

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure which way to go, one unit or 2. Hubby wants a top loader, I think the front loader looks nicer. Have seen arguments that say the front loader is more convienent. I want one that is fairly quiet, efficient and the best bang for the buck. Hubby likes whatever is cheapest, but after the last bargin he got on telephones (buttons stick) he's starting to come around.

I will be curious to hear from others and their experiences. Good to know about the different widths.
