I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis that is an Oasis from Sanity and a test of patience. If you believe in gun control, you don't own this tool.
I would like to replace it with either a traditional top loader with an agitator (as an agitator myself, I feel a certain kinship) or a front loader for blankets,etc. Budget is 1K or a lot less. It's just DH and I but he's got a Dirty Job and Horses are Dirty by Default.
