Question about Washing Machines

What is the best website to compare the energy usage of two washing machines? I am trying to compare an older washing machine (Maytag:LAT8210AAW )with a newer machine Kenmore 24632300.

Sounds like a problem with either the idler pulley or the serpentine belt. If a belt is loose or worn it may slip when the alternator is working hard. Alternators work extra hard for several minutes after first starting the engine. They do that to recharge the battery after you've taken a lot of electrical energy to start the engine. The extra electrical energy is normal at startup, but if it's making a loud noise it is usually an indication of a loose belt or slipping because of a worn spring on the idler.

BTW, you posted this under Maytag washing machines; last I checked a Silverado isn't even closely related to a washing machine... just trying to help.

Which washing machine is better front load or top load?


Front load washing machines are better than top load money wise.

One advantage of a front loading washing machine is an increased capacity. Since there is no central agitator, the horizontally-oriented drum can hold at least 20 to 30% more clothing per load. For a large family, this could mean running only three loads in a front loading washing machine compared to five in a top loader. Fewer loads often translates to savings in utility bills and water usage.

Another advantage of a front loading washing machine is less water and detergent usage. A top loading washer must use enough water to cover the highest level of the clothes. A front loading washing machine, on the other hand, only uses enough water to cover approximately the lower third of the tub at most.

Hiya,
the easyest way to find out the star rating is to try shopping for the item online if you find the product it will normally give you a breakdown of the benefits then you can compare them with other items for sale or other items you may be interested in, as for if the washer dryer would be more energy efficient you normally find combined machines have 2 ratings 1 for the dryer & another for the washine machine & depending which part of the machine you are using would determin the rating at that time if that makes sence.

Hope this helps

I would you recommend you make a burial date for that machine. The best ones out right now are whirlpool, or one of their models like roper etc... just get the standard models. I do not recommend front load models. This goes the same for the Fridge. The better one out is whirlpool, maytag and the other models are having a bad compressor issues... let me know if i can be more assist to you.

Maytag Washing Machine - water will not shut off and overflows tub


this could be either a bad pressure switch, located behind the control panel. it has a small usually black hose running down to the tub. more than likely since this is an older machine the hose has become worn in one spot and is leaking air. replace the hose and that shold do it. if not its the presasure switch.

Samsung Washer WT1101cw will not drain. Originally had a OE error. Running "Spin" or "Rinse Spin" cycles but pump cycles on for less than 1 second and goes into spin with water in it. _Laundry loaded with a OE error and water not draining. _I manually drained the system, took apart the drain and did not find a clog or anything to prevent the motor from turning. _Pump motor reads continuity. _Ran multiple SPIN cycles and then a RINSE and SPIN cycle and actually had the pump run for a few seconds and even for a minute or so one time but could not repeat and hasn't since. _checked the Pressure Switch and see continuity between common and outside contact. Tried to increase pressure by blowing into the tube using a straw on the end of tube but saw no change. Not sure how the pressure is created inside the bowl. _There was no overfill condition originally and I have not tried to run a normal cycle because the washer is in an upstairs location and draining is difficult and messy. ___I believe that something is preventing the voltage from being sent to the pump motor but I have am not sure what logic conditions need to be satisfied for this to happen.I keep looking at the pressure switch because the drum will perform a load sense and then go into a spin cycle with water in it which sloshes around. Questions: --Shouldn't the drain pump normally be running prior to the spin? --what causes the change in the pressure switch? Does the switch only change at a "full" level? Please only answer if you have a clear understanding of the system. I am trying to avoid excessive expense in this repair and swapping parts unnecessarily. I am beginning to think that it is the control board and do not want to spend hundreds of dollars if it is not. Thanks.
