Bought the washer-dryer pair through Costco about 2 years ago at a great price and the delivery/installation was perfect....and I normally do these things myself, so I'm not an easy customer. Both washer and dryer have worked well since. The only thing that could have been better for us is the flexibility to reverse the doors both ways. Our dryer is on the left side so the washer door blocks the path to the dryer.

We bought this washing machine 2.5 years ago and I have been recommending it to everyone. We loved it. Until the drum broke. Disappointing for only having used it 2 years but not as disappointing as the cost to fix it. For parts and labor it cost more to fix it than the actual machine cost us. We were under warranty at the time so didn't have to pay for this fix out of pocket but it was a huge wake up call. Now that we are not under warranty anymore if it breaks we are not paying more than it cost or is worth to fix it and we should have to get an extended warranty it should be a good product in the first place.
So unfortunately I am not recommending this anymore. I still love the machine and am thankful it is working now. But if you are looking for a new washing machine get a top loader without an agitator and get one that doesn't have computers in it. This washing machine has 3 and if they break that's it for us and this machine.

        We bought this about two years ago and have already had to replace the heating element once and it has quit working again. Our old dryer was 20 years old and we had little issues with it. It looks like this one is going to cost us a couple hundred dollars a year. It's a joke.

                          We've been very satisfied with the dryer. Honestly, I haven't used many of the additional features. We're constantly on the run, so I just set it and go. But items are perfect when I return. My older dryer would take multiple cycles to get through a load of towels. This seems to perfectly sense light-weight clothes and heavy items. I've loved the dryer in particular.

                                      This dryer has exceeded my expectations. I like being able to fit all of our clothes into one load - with room to spare. My husbands like the steam feature for his work clothes. Overall, this is a quality dryer with great features.
