The end is here. My washer died. In the past few weeks, it had been giving me problems. We got this in early 2000 so it should be close to 7 or 8 years old by now. This is the second of the same model that we bought in the last 14 years. We liked this washer because it has a stainless steel drum and the operation similar to the front loading except that the opening is from top. When I first got this, I couldn't believe my eyes when the advertisement showed a raw egg with a lipstick stain being placed to be washed. End of the cycle, the stain was washed and the egg wasn't broken. So when our first Thomson showed signs of stress after 7 years, we got another of similar model.
The width of my old Thomson model was only 16" wide
