While efficiency requirements are problematic , they are no excuse for the garbage they make today .
Electronic boards repeatedly defective are manufacturer based , not efficiency standard based . Ditto a myriad of faulty and short lived parts .
Like I really need an electronic washine machine to add to breakdowns , as if simple mechanical dials and operation are too much trouble in exchange for many years of reliability . I need a several hundred dollar per repair electronic control design to render the machine a throw away at the first breakdown .
