I think you should be able to find one. My brother moved into a home and he had a new high efficiency washer/dryer and he sold the one that they had been left there (though was still pretty new). His wife wanted one of the extra large capacity ones...she spent over 3 grand on the washer/dryer combo. It does about three times a normal load.
When we bought ours three years ago I bought used, but at an outlet store (Sears outlet). We call it the "sratch and dent" store
. I wanted a warranty as my mom had been through some craziness with her dryer and to repair it cost nearly as much as a new one! I bought a high efficiency front loader washer for $400, and then a nice dryer for $300. Our washer and dryer before I had gotten free from a friend, the dryer broke and we were at the point where the washer wasn't working well either....it wasn't spinning clothes out well and it would take 4 hours for a load of clothes to dry
: . I wanted the high efficiency, front loader because I knew that in the long run it would cost less...the clothes are spun out so well that our drying times are very low. Plus, it does probably 2x a normal load. I am VERY glad that I bought it from the outlet store...11 months after we got it the washer stopped turning. It was completely under warranty and it turned out that the computer board was messed up in the washer...if we had to pay for the repair ourselves the guy said it would have cost $460!!!
: If the washer had been new, it would have been $800...
