I've worked on tons of these ,had training 18 months ago .To me they make a simple thing (laundry) complicated .They are over engineered .

I'm thinking I know what P O S means and I have to agree.

I love the nuts coming off the pulleys. But over all have not had that many issues with them.

Lol! Is that what these things are called? I got one that was a year old used for $175. Model #WTW4950OXW. It's a very nice machine, so far. The design seems so simple? Not much to them. THe one I have does not have any fancy crap on it like digital readouts etc. The only dislike I have is NO fabric dispenser. I have to use a downy ball!

This looks like they put the VMW drive in a compact washer.  Should be much better to work on than the old world washer design.

This is the washer I have in my back yard I have been calling a VMW. I replaced the lidswitch and now the whole thing is completely dead and the lid is locked. Does the lid lock on yours when the power ain't on WM?

Put the file you want to share in the Dropbox: 'Public' folder. Then right click on it or click on the drop down menu for that file and you should see a option that says something like, 'get sharable link'

You want to post the shared link for that file.
Hope you find our site helpful.

Mine locks after cycle starts and unlocks when it is finished. Another thing I don't like is there is no EOC signal. You have to listen for the lid to click when it is done.
