I would prefer a classic top load washer with direct drive motor. Also try to find a model with no electronics in it. Whirlpool or Maytag will be good. Absolutely no any front load washers. Absolutely no any non American washers.

I know that some people will disagree but this is my personal opinion. I do have such washer at home and so far I do like it.

Gene.

Thank you very much for the advice. Keeping the design simple sounds like a solid plan.

do you happen to know which companies still manufacturers in the US?

They are now marketing a good, direct drive washer under the Maytag name.
They are also marketing direct drive washers that are not a whirlpool,but probably Chinese.
When you look at washers, verify it is a Whirlpool, direct drive washer, and not ones that have a lot of electronics and use a direct drive motor that acts as a transmission.
