They don't make them like they used to

last month

Just on my soap box literally-figuratively

In prep for new machines, decided to pull the old one out - which is easy peasy with a air dolly.....

My now defunct machine weighs 300lbs lb. New one weights 2/3 of it.

    Unfortunately that is becoming the norm-charge more for less in this disposable World.

    Keeps the freight charges low. Also, your new machine is a bit smaller in size.

    What do/did you have?

    My former TL GE washer (mid-1980s ~100lbs) was light vs my current FL Bosch (late 2000s ~200lbs).

    That's not necessarily a bad thing; using lighter weight materials can decrease costs without decreasing effectiveness. Heavier doesn't mean better or better built - sometimes it's because it is wasteful, not more efficient.
