I came home to a "surprise."

Apparently on Thursday night, the washer started doing shit on its own. The wife unplugged it. Now any time I give it power it starts a 'CANCEL' cycle and tries to pump an empty tub more empty. It will never stop and all controls are unresponsive.

This damn thing is just two years old and probably needs a control board.

I hate GD digital controls on everything. What’s wrong with a good, old fashioned dial?

I actually still have a dial operated front loader from the early 2000s, I replaced the tub gasket last year, but it's working great otherwise.

Bought a new one this year with a dial and love it. I agree not everything needs to be digital.

Consumer level digital crap fails faster, has flashing stuff and you buy replacements sooner.  What's not to love if you make or sell them?

I hate that shit.

There is no technical reason we can't make a washer that lasts 20 years.

Yeah, I get it. I’ve understood since I learned that there has been no-run pantyhose technology since the 50s.

Have we learned nothing from Chernobyl!???

Amen.  Our top load "old school" washer is almost 25 years old.  We have replaced a pump, for around $250.  Last week we replaced some plastic agitator gears for $110.  There is no way I would even consider going with these thousand dollar front load washer/dryers.  Go to a used appliance store George and buy something that was made 20 years ago and save some $$$$.

I guess we got lucky with our digitally controlled washer/dryer set that we've had 10 years, no problems except a failed heating element on the dryer (I ordered the part and I came home and the wife had already fixed it).

I would be mega pissed if a two year old appliance crapped out like that. I don't know if we've been lucky or quality has gone down but it seems a lot of people are having this issue now.
