Can anyone tell me what HE machines are the most durable? My Maytag Neptune T/L is a lemon and I need to buy a new machine. This one didn't even last 3 years. Any recommendations for DURABILITY would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

On these models, they did not have a clean washer cycle, but you can try using some new products on the market. One in particular is "affresh". They are tablets available at most supermarkets. The old field service technique to deodorize your machine was to put one cup of bleach directly into the tub of the washer and use Lemon scented powder dishwasher detergent in the soap dispenser of the machine (enough for one load in a dishwasher). Set the machine to a cotton sturdy cycle with HOT wash and extra rinse selected and start it up. The bleach will sanitize the machine and the lemon scented detergent will deodorize it. Good luck!!
I would get and older Maytag or Whirlpool direct drive before all the changes. One with the knobs not all the electronic junk that cause problems and made with cheap plastic parts that don't hold up. The old ones can be repaired and a lot of them look about as good as the new ones. An old 30 year old porcelen Maytag thats been taken care of looks almost new and may outlast the new plastic ones.
This is what I do repair old ones for people who don't have much money and I have learned a lot about these machines I won't even take the newer ones it cost so much to repair them and they will be back to be repaired again soon. I won't let my wife buy a new one.
i understand exactly...never heard of cascade ..the slug is to much what you have to decide which is more cost effective,,having a technician come out and taking tub apart for a manuel cleaning and scrb break down or purchasing new one..but i always tell my customers bleach every other month with hot wash cold rinse,,now i do have one last tip..try CLR..
The age is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. Please post back with your complete serial number, particularly the last two letter designations. With that info I can tell you month and year the washer was manufactured.
re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.
