Lets look at this popular Bosch washer:
Success aside, it was discontinued for this model
Sure, the newer one is a bit larger and eco-friendly, but it is irregular for a manufacturer to completely change a productive series before its time. Bosch had very good reasons:
The new model could stack with a matching dryer. Stacking has become very important as many people are now placing the laundry near the bedroom instead of the basement.
So Bosch could kill two proverbial birds (hate that cliche) by entering a growing market and still produce only one machine.
Then again, they could be following Frigidaire, Electrolux, Whirlpool and GE who have already been producing this type of product for years. You probably don't see too many one piece washer dryer stacks any more for that reason.
