N1K-2Ja does exist in the current FMB so you can definately have a go at it.

No idea on the other two http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Kenmoore and Whirlpool same thing. I would buy the absolute cheapest one you can find (I think they all last about 8 yrs before crapping out).

If the new fangled digital machine is a front loader and the old machine was a top loader the old detergent will probably not work well in any mix. Top loader detergents have a very high content of "foaming agent" that interferes with efficient cleaning in front loading machines. The foaming agent has no cleaning benefit, it's only there to make the wash water look nice and soapy. Unlike soap, most detergents don't make water foam up enough to satisfy the average consumer's expectations so the detergent companies put in additives to satisfy our visual expectations :shrug:<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Wow, what a topic http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

If you want a lot longer life out of your clothes, then get a good front loader. I knew they were better and bought one. Then last year when on a contract in another state, I bought a cheap s/hand top loader. Geeez, the difference was incredible. It almost ate my clothes in comparison and this was a well respected brand with digital flashing lights and button thingies type control. Now I am mostly back with my front loader and all the more happier.

I have clothes that I have been wearing for the last seven years and they are still in reasonably good condition after all that time. You wo't get that from a top loader.

Best of luck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I feel your pain brother !!!Fridges and washing machines must be the ultimate example of built in obscelescence today.Im sick of buying them all because some tiny part goes and its not economical to repair them-like having to scrap a car because some electronic control unit the size of a dvd box has gone kaput.
By the way Ive heard -and personal experience also suggests -that the age of the most reliable cars has been and gone -Apparently the early /mid 80s Honda Civics were awarded most reliable car ever acolade- a bit of rust obviously didnt put the judges off!2 of the last 3 brand new Japanese small cars (2 x Toyota Yaris' and a Nissan Micra)my wife has ran have developed electrical faults within 3 months.
I believe that some of them old bad boy fridges from the 40s-60s (?) (early Bosch?)go on forever
The hard water in my area really kills the washing machines but as anyone who can do simple maths knows Calgon or similar anti limescale products cost more over the years than a new machine!!!
There cant be many people making a living out of servicing these kind of products any more...
Id have similar advice to that already given except Id adapt the Homer Simpson wine buying approach in going for the 'second least expensive ' option.
