I have had my Staber hxw2304 for five years and 2.5 months.Two and a half months after the warranty has expired they think it is reasonable to expect someone to have to pay two-hundred and five dollars for a new bearing kit and a belt.
I have greased that bearing three times with lithium grease. Each time I thought that it was wierd to have to grease my washer. I have never heard of this before, but the instructions said to do it. So, I've got a one-thousand dollar washer that I can only put 2 cft of clothes in, that I have to run twice to get any real stain out, that has to have regular greasings and belt tension checks.
I've never overloaded it, it is inside of an air-conditioned laundry room and only two people use it. The timer has always stuck and the only savings have been the low amount of soap that I use. So, over the years I have saved a little money on soap; but, I have had to put up with a washer that doesn't really get my clothes clean (probably because of not enough water being used) and now I have nothing more than an expensive piece of lawn art. I have been making excuses for this good idea gone south ever since it arrived.
I wish I had done more research before buying this sorry piece of junk. It doesn't make any sense spending another two-hundred dollars to keep a used (crappy from the start) washer going. I think some people are drawn to the creative design. Creativity doesn't necessarily have any bearing on performance, the "˜Spruce Goose' was very creative.
Others probably see the price tag and assume anything that pricey can't be a hunk of ***.
If, I charged a million dollars for a Yugo could I call it a luxury car.Please, to those of you that keep trying to defend this hunk of ***"”"”STOP, BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF, YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THIS MACHINE, YOU SPENT ALOT OF MONEY AND TOLD A FEW PEOPLE ABOUT THE INNOVATIVE WASHER THAT YOU BOUGHT AND NOW YOU ARE TOO EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG.
