A little clarification...
Five & six motion technology is not the addition of more components to the washer--it's all *software* (The Main Board).
Computers and sensors allow for maximum efficiency which was not possible in older front load washers with mechanical controls.
While it can be argued that it's taking longer than most of us desire--the reliability and durability of "modern" appliances is improving steadily.
We've gone from RECIPROCATING compressors (reliable but not as efficient) to ROTARY compressors (more efficient but less reliable) to LINEAR compressors (very efficient and much more reliable than rotary).
