I would like to hear from all the people who have a Splendide washing machine in your motorhome or 5th wheel. Like to know what problems you have had over the years and how long in years has it been in service. Would be nice to know the cycle life as well or number of washing per trip. Some people travel a lot and others only travel couple weeks out of the year. More use adds more cycle life on machine. The TX door lock is used in this machine and all people we have talked to, this has been the item that stops working.

First unit we bought 2100 vented for our trailer and full time use lasted 4 years with only the door latch failing until the drum wore out. It always seemed to be to have too much shaking when we did the laundry, and it appears that the bouncing allowed the stainless steel drum to touch the frame work and over time wore a hole in the drum. That allowed the water inside the unit to leak out. I took it apart thinking I could fix it, but the parts cost more than buying a new unit. We then bought a 2100XC and it is heads above the old unit. Runs smoother, weighs less, is quieter and holds more stuff. I would not have a rig without a washer/drier and so far the Splendide has been well worth the money for us.
