Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The Whirlpool direct drive machine is probably one of the best washers ever built. They are easy to fix, do a great job and parts are everywhere for them. They are also very dependable! The direct drive design was introduced in 1984. I would have no issues getting a machine that is 15 years + if it has been overhauled, which most used shops do before selling. You would not regret getting one of the earlier machines with no electronics, including temperature sensors, if you want a simple, long lasting machine. They are, by far, the best selling machines on the used market and, oddly enough, are bringing close to new prices in some cases! New machines are not allowed to use hot water, only warm, so the hot cycle is electronically controlled to maintain a warm temperature and the water levels allowed are so low that the cleaning is compromised, as well as the rinsing results!
