Thread: GDG: I have to HIGHLY recommend this washing machine for dog laundry. :)

    Default GDG: I have to HIGHLY recommend this washing machine for dog laundry. :)

    Ok, so maybe this belongs on product reviews. And for my FB friends you know how much I love the new washing machine. LOL

    I got a maytag bravos mvwb400vq. It's a top-load high efficiency with a GIANT tub. It's awesome for dog laundry -- blankets, towels, etc. And it's so quiet, it's ridiculous.

    We've had it for about a month now and it's just awesome. The top load is so much better for doing large blankets and stuff, in my opinion. It's a pain to stuff big things in a front load.

    Just thought I'd throw it out there if anyone's in the market for a washer...

    Hey, Kristie, do you still like your top loading high efficiancy washer? My 12 year old Maytag neptune front loader is about to quit. Went shopping today and came home without a replacement - too confusing! Things have changed a lot in 12 years. Any input about the newer machines would be appreciated!

    Thanks for the input - my washer is 12 years old and starting to make some odd noises - I dread the day it finally quits.

    I just recently got the Maytag Centenial top loader no agitator so easy to load bulky items. It uses 72% leass water. It does take a little getting used to-helps to read the instructions) Very quiet. Really like it. Got a great deal on sale at Home Depot.

    Yes, still love it. We did have a pump go out ($200). And yesterday, the lid lock wasn't catching... (and it has to lock to wash or it won't)

    But we REALLY REALLY beat the tar out of a washing machine. We do "dog laundry" by the ton and I'm not even joking. We have about 45 king size comforters, probably twice as many towels, plus other sheets, blankets and dog beds. If we have a rainy, muddy week... We may do 10+ loads a day (no joke) of full-on filthy, heavy stuff.

    I'm very happy with it. I think the lid catch is my fault for cramming a really think fluffy, box stitched king down comforter (that does belong to the dogs) in there when it was soaking wet... It hardly fits. I think it put pressure on the lid.

    Would still highly recommend it.
