I have noticed that my clothes come out of the washer, with less wrinkles and not as tangled as my old washer...Also have found that the drying time is less also..meaning it extracts more water then my old one did... but what I DON'T like about it, is that it senses the load, which takes at least 10 mins. to do so, before it even starts to wash...very quiet operation, which I disagree with what another reviewer had said,they said it was the noisiest washer they ever had... it DOES make strange noises as it washes, but does the job, and does it well and very quiet..as long as you're not in a hurry for a load..as it takes almost an hour for large load with the extra rinse cylce on...Also I don;t like the fact that the lid is locked before the washer starts to fill with water, as I like to rinse out the detergent and fabric softener lids after using....If you could live with these problems.. I do recommend this washer... I Solved the problems.. I just put everything in, close the lid,start it and,walk upstairs , and come back in about an hour to throw it in the dryer...LOL

Although this machine appears to have an agitator in the middle to ensure clean clothes, do not be deceived. Unless you use the heavy setting (which results in random holes in your clothing), it doesn't remove even any surface foreign matter. I accidentally tipped over a bowl of cereal while I was getting ready to load the washer one time, and the few pieces I didn't find before I washed the clothes...were still sitting on them when the machine finished!!! Unless you HEAVILY pre-treat fresh stains, don't expect them to look anything but wetter after washing it. After just 3 months of light use the machine started shaking and flailing about when it tried to spin. After the lights went out and it stopped, I opened the lid - only to have it start up lid OPEN an hour later. This utterly voids the purpose of the safety "lid lock" feature. After I unplugged it and let it sit a day, I tried the spin/drain cycle but it wont spin at all. I never overload the washer - there's no point in even trying since then it doesn't even fully wet the clothes. By overload I mean even ever-so-lightly press down on the clothes to tuck in a pair of shorts or tee shirt. Overall, if you want wet dirty clothes, go with Maytag (which is the same manufacturer as an identical Whirlpool machine) - otherwise choose another machine.

It sounds like a rocket launching!
from Statesville, NC
After balancing your dirty laundry very carefully around the outside of the tub and adding the softener ball this machine proceeds to sound like a launch! It's thinking! Do it quietly and quickly! Our laundry area is in our kitchen but needless to say I don't multitask with laundry. The whole wash cycle takes forever! No buzzer for completed cycle! Not a happy owner.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Doesn't spin/dry properly just after a year
from Kop, pa
Awful! We have to put the cycle on an additional spin cycle to dry our clothes more. After a wash load is finished, we open the lid & clothes are sopping wet! This is only after 1 year!
The choices for different wash loads is very helpful
from Emporia KA
Definitely like the fact that the machine allows only the amount of water needed for individual wash loads. Thanks!
The product has great features
from Cape May, NJ
The washer is durable, energy efficient and affordable
I love this washing machine
from Marion Texas
This machine does a very good job at removing soil and odors from all clothing. I only wish it was large enough to put my quilts in.
from Burnettsville, IN
I love the capacity!!! I do half the loads of laundry than I used to do!
Commercial quality, affordable price
from Indianapolis, IN
I love the high capacity stainless steel tub. This machine handles a large load, and without the agitator, doesn't damage or wear out clothes like other machines. It has lots of great options, but is simple to use, and very quiet. I know this machine will last a long time.
I picked up the dryer to this set to replace our old one. After seeing the dryer in action we picked the washer up to within a few days. This set works very well we didn't know just how bad our old units had gotten. This set is a great replacement with many new features we didn't have on our old set.
from Lake Wales, FL
