All the big non-commercial front loaders are made the same way, regardless of manufacturer. The problem is in the basic design, which is essentially the same for all. What happens is that the bearings wear out because the tub spins at a right angle to the ground, and is supported only by the bearing structures. In a and of itself this would not is not necessarily an issue, but the washers are designed so that to get to the bearings to replace them, almost the entire washer has to be disassembled, the the bearings replaced, and then reassembled. Planned obsolescence at its most insidious.
