From the outside they could be boring, but they're not all equal. You sometimes need to clean some heavy stains, or to use delicate wash for some silk fabrics, so getting the cheapest might be a pain in the arse if you need special washing cycles. Generally you should look for brands with a history behind it, cause they have a bit of know-how that should come in handy when special care for your laundry is needed. I have a Bosch washer that works fine for 10 years now, but ruined my silk curtains even if I used its dedicated silk program. $800 out the window! I guess it's better to stick with their construction tools that they are known of, and not rely on whatever else they try to manufacture
