SAD THAT COMPANIES DISCONTINUE GOOD PRODUCTS
This washer has worked well for me & is great for what I paid for it.

Who needs bells and whistles?
I needed a washer to fit a limited space and had a good reputation. It cleans my clothes as well as any more expensive machine.

I love this washer!
I purchased this washer in January 2012. I compared washers online for days, examining features and prices. I wanted an affordable washer that used WATER to wash the clothes! (I don't like HE washers!!!) The water levels on this washer can be set anywhere you wish for any size load. There are several temperature settings and several fabric type settings. All rinse cycles are cold, but I noticed that was the case in all the washers I compared. The washer is very quiet except for a two or three loud "clicks" during the cycle. These "clicks" concerned me at first as I thought something was wrong, but the washer manual assures this is a normal part of the cycle. Now that I know they're normal, I don't notice the clicks anymore. My clothes come out very clean - much, much cleaner than my previous washer. I am VERY happy with this washer's appearance and performance and thought the price was very reasonable. I would buy this washer again.

GREAT manually controlled non-HE washing machine, GTWN4000MWS
First of all, this is a real review, not someone trying to sell this washer.
We love this washer. We bought it to replace our smelly 8-year old HE washer which we have hated since day one, but since we paid almost $1,000 for it, we used it. It never seemed to get the clothes clean, it smelled like mold/mildew constantly, even shortly after cleaning it (and we kept it open all the time and we left the laundry room door open all the time too), and we HATED not being able to conrol how much water went into it.
Well, this washer is great. YOU decide how much water goes into it. This is as old-school washing machine as you can get. I was a little worried about the hydrowave agitation, but it is actually very good. My only complaint is that you can't use the fabric softener setting on the gentle cycle. I guess maybe it does not spin fast enough so that the fabric softener would be released at the end of the spin. We can live with that.
It is VERY quiet when washing, and when spinning is is pretty much normal. We were used to our HE machine which sounded like an airplane when it spun, so this is quieter than that for sure!
I want to be clear, there are NO electronics on the control panel of this washer. Nothing. It is old-school rotary-mechanical controls. It is great.
