[RFI] Maytag Neptune FL pair, almost no RFI!!!

I just purchased a Maytag Neptune front loading pair, the new model  6700.  
RFI is almost negligible!  As the Washer drum spins up, there  is slight hash 
sound that peaks at S-5 then drops off.  In the spin mode  there is a very 
minor raspy noise that is just audible above the normal S-3  noise level here.  
I've been focusing on 20M, where most problems have been  reported, but cursory 
checks of the other bands have not indicated any  problems.
I was expecting problems, as my antenna is a double zepp, on a roof mounted  
pole directly above the laundry room and fed with open feeders.   Truthfully, 
I get far more noise from my computer monitor.
I hope this is an indication that the appliance mfgrs are doing something  
about this problem, but, as always, your mileage may vary.
