So, being the kind of guy who likes to run everything he owns into the ground before buying something new, I am facing my first washing machine purchase in roughly 18 years. In the interim it appears everything I thought I knew about the devices has been thrown out the window, so I was wondering if I could get yall's thoughts and experiences w/ impeller washers . I will say up front I am not that interested in a front loader. I've had too many people who have had issues w/ the inner gasket & leaks, plus I'm a pretty tall guy for that much bending. My preference, being an old school guy, would be an old school agitator but now it seems all those options are now paradoxically only extremely low or extremely high end. So bottom line - I'd like to get anybody's direct experience with impeller washers as from what I've seen online the reviews seem very mixed. Thanks in advance.
