That’s the titanium one, right?

They loaded one of those in my truck before I noticed the letters were different.  I didn’t care about the color, white matches the dryer, and it was $50 or $100 cheaper, so I got it.

So far, so good.  The previous machine was great, but this one is better.
Yes same washer different color.

If you’ve got a Metro in your area it’s the place to go.  They do unbelievavolume in their markets.

I tend towards Whirlpool in anything.  I like front loaders for a number of reasons, mainly it’s better for your clothes.  If you go top load never buy a new fangled one without an agitator; your clothes just float.

SpeedQueen is ok if you want a reliable tough washer.  It’s ancient tech that eats energy, chugs water, and is rough on clothes.  But it works.  Why do independent dealers love it? Cos they don’t sell HD or Lowe’s or sears or walMarks.  The margins they make on SQ is significantly more than they make on the major lines.  It’s totally a distribution play that focuses on independents with directed incentivized floors.

I don’t like French door reefers; they break constantly because the ice maker is in the fridge instead of the freezer.  New energy efficient compressors are not as heavy duty as old ones that just comes with the territory.

Went there, bought the Electrolux EFLS627UIW.

It is currently washing my clothes as I type.

I’ve bought all my appliances (except for that one shitty dishwasher) from Metro.
They beat HD by $200 on the same machine.

they can beat any of those places in town price wise and they don’t contract out their deliveries. I dealt with sears delivering the same dishwasher four times dented until I said refund me and called metro and they were out same day with delivery and cheaper.

I think read something about new speed queens not being as reliable due to some recent redesign.  Prior to that, you couldn't beat them.

I read the same thing. One long term dealer called them out on line and they pulled  his franchise.
