We've had this front loading washing machine for probably 12 years and it's been pretty decent. It hasn't been perfect as repairs have needed to be done over the years. I think I've waited too long to replace the bearings on this and I might need a new machine. I'm not home when the machine is getting used, but I did a load last night. Besides the horrendous noises, I noticed plastic and some other materials. The machine also would occasionally continue to fill up the drum with water and the odors meant running the cleaning tabs through it on a periodic basis.

So, I'm going to have to either repair or replace. If I'm replacing what are your recommendations for a good machine? Labor Day seems like a good time for a purchase.

Top loader, front loader?

Brands - We had Samsung in the kitchen and we had some issues with that company. I asked here and was steered away from LG & Samsung for the refrigerator. What are the good brands today?

We usually run 2 full loads through the machine on a daily basis.

Thanks for your time!
