Does anyone know how good a Whirlpool top loader is? I looked at a Bosch but it is the washing machine as some Defys so don't know if it is still worth the extra money.

Those big ones? Last for decades. I'd never buy anything else.

Can only comment on their dryers. We switched from Speed Queen high capacity dryers to Whirlpool high capacity dryers. The Whirlpool machines have been rock solid and of course way cheaper than Speed Queen in terms of purchase price and maintenance.

Got a Whirlpool toploader and it so far lasted me 26 carefree years.

Just sold my Whirlpool washing machine and drier after more than 20 years of service. Cost me R 350 in worn parts over the duration. Solid as Speed Queen.
