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.

my kids left something in the pockets that got washed. As a result, the pump failed.

To empty the machine - once it is locked, requires you to remove a plug on the front/bottom. You need t capture that water! NASTY JOB.

I ended up taking it to the dealer, and FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS LATER, the pump was replaced. The pump was cheap, about a hundred and a half, but the labor was a killer. They had to pull the machine, take it outside the coach to work on it, then replace it back into the coach.

I am not so sure that the next motorhome will have a washer/dryer. It is CONVIENT but a royal pain in the butt.
