I found this.

Why does one put a washer in the kitchen?? :confused: :confused: (the one by Shelley of Southaven, MS)
No front load for me ... even if it saves water.

My appliants are all Maytag but they are all 11 years old now. I guess my next one will not be Maytag.

It is a merger to Whirlpool and it is not approved by court yet.

Chances are good that you have Maytags that the reputation was built on so they will last a long time. My brother is in the appliance repair business. Old Maytags were well worth the money, even the early front-loaders they built because they used the coin-op maytag design (prior to the Neptune series)

Great example of a company cashing in on their reputation in order to provide shareholders with the returns that the stock market demands.

I'm wondering that too. But I've been watching a lot of home reno shows and I've noticed that a lot of homes in the UK do this. The washer is right next to the dish washer in the kitchen. Maybe it's a townhouse thing where space is quite limited.

In UK, it is very common to put the washer in the kitchen like a buildt in dishwasher. Even in HK, a once UK colony, also like to put washer in kitchen, but a stand alone (not buildt-in) because of limited space. I always thought that the washer belongs to the kitchen until I came to Canada, there is something called a "laundry room"!

I am thinking that the washer is put in the kitchen perhaps because of in line water heaters. This may reduce the amount of units needed to heat water or such. Kasie1 :)
