Entegra "classic" Washing Machine

Well after 10 years our whirlpool washer died. I went to look for a replacement and it is discontinued. WFC7500VW1.

The replacement model WFW3090JW has terrible reviews about failures so I'm looking for any recommendations.

Thanks

Coachman, mine is the same vintage but either way, any of the three main control boards are nearing 25% of a replacement unit.
Splendide makes units that are almost identical in dimensions. There have been a few on the forum that really like them.
Good luck in what you decide.

Do not install a new whirlpool. Get something else that you like. And it will work in your cabinet.

When my washer quit in my (traded) 2014 Anthem after 5 yrs, I bought a Splendide. Minor differences swapping out. Rock solid. Dump the Whirlpool and don’t look back,

Watching Camping Worlds sales, I know go wash my mouth out , they sometimes have sales less than replacing with Whirlpool. They are currently on sale now. https://www.campingworld.com/inside-...washers-dryers

One thing for people to remember is that while you're in there swap out the factory installed air admittance valve with a higher quality one.
Later...

We replaced our Whirlpools early on and installed the Arriston stackables. Trouble free with them except when I froze up a water inlet valve one winter (my fault). When I replaced the valve I could see how the washer was built much better than the Whirlpools.

The Arriston was the labeling on the washers at the time but they were made by Splendide. I believe that the Arriston branding has gone away and they are now just called Splendide but it's the same great washer and dryer as before - just restyled with newer model numbers.

We replaced our Whirlpool washer with a new Electrolux model EFLS210TIW. It fits well and has very high ratings. It's made in Italy. It's probably the best washer we've owned.

Just a warning. You will need someone very strong to lift these things as they are extremely heavy.

When I had to swap out my washer and dryer I fabricated a 2x4 stand with a plywood platform at a height just a little higher than where each machine sits. After I slid the dryer out it was much more manageable to carry out. (Had to remove the doors and some trim. Note: The top trim plate required some careful cutting) After I got the dryer out I had another stand for the washer. Same process. I had to move my water supply and my dryer hose to accomodate my Splendide(s). I did the reverse process to put back in. I unscrewed the stand parts and burned them in the campfire.

We had to get Entegra to replace our brand new Whirlpool-it never worked (picked up new in February). We had Splendides in the prior two units and never had a lick of trouble. If Entegra would have paid the labor and replacement cost, we would have a Splendide in the third coach.
