    Love it!

    Only had it for a couple of months now but I absolutely love this product. It washes the clothes really well. One of the things I love about this washer is, it wrings the water out of the clothes really good. It leaves them lightly damp so there is less drying time in the dryer. Overall very happy with this product, great washer.

    Liking it after a weeek

    This is second of this model received, the first being horrendously damaged in shipping.

    Used in three member family, this top-loading washer is quiet, appears cleaning effective. Uses different wash and rinse ideas to save energy, along with fast spin speeds. Auto or manually set, water levels are just too low, yet washer still seems effective at cleaning. Do NOT overload or mis-use washer as these models will break internal parts. Warranty is far too short, buying a second year extended warranty IS recommended. Stainless steel tub may not have stainless steel bolts underneath and those may rust and break.

  3. 4 out of 5 stars.

    Not a bad machine from all other options on the market.

    The machine has an appropriate number of input combinations of load type, temp, spin, and rinse cycle options. The clothes seem to come out clean without other issues. However, it takes way too long to do any size load of wash. The entire cycle for a normal load of white clothes takes (about 1.3 hours !) well over an hour from the time you hit "start --fill" until the cycle stops and it is ready to take out the clothes. That is the only reason I selected NOT on a recommendation for the product.

    Also, the tub never seems to have sufficient amounts of water to let the clothes wash freely. I've started to use a "load size" larger than indicated, just to get more water into the tub. Also, it seems sometimes the last spin cycle doesn't seem to really "wring-out" all of the water in the clothes and I have to wring the lower layer of washed clothes by hand prior to putting them in the dryer.

  4. 5 out of 5 stars.

    Excellent washer!

    Previously had a front loader. This washer is quieter, faster, has lots of choices and spins the clothes drier. It has a large tub and does a great job on my husband's dirty work jeans. It is simple to use. Great washer!

  5. 4 out of 5 stars.

    It looks and works great

    I have had my washer for 3 mo now, it took time to get used to the spinning noise & the clicks the machine makes. I like how it cleans with little water
