I LOVE this washer! I bought this washer and dryer about two months ago and love them! The washer does an incredible job on the clothes without tearing them apart . The number of cycles and options for each load are incredible and it saves money on electricity and laundry products! Its even quiet and pretty!

The washer does not clean well. I have to run 2 to 3 times to get laundry clean.
There is not enough water to make a good puddle. I like to use a variety of detergents depending on the garments--such as Cheer, Tide, Woolite. You cannot change detergents as the dispenser cannot accommodate changes per load.
This is the worst product design. The designer obviously does not do a lot of laundry. I wish I had not purchased this product.

        I bought this a month ago and LOVE it. It replaced a Whirlpool washer that was about 30 years old and was STILL working. Just wanted to update my laundry room.

        Working great so far

        By 

        from Ann Arbor, MI, United States

        Got this back in November 2014, writing review in January 2015.
        So far great washer. haven't had any clothes come out not clean enough.
        The liquid dispenser is great. You can fill it and it is good for several washes, rather than filling every load.

              We had are last whirlpool machine 8 years it was used, and we work the machine hard.
              We have dogs in the house, we wash rugs and dog beds , along with the everyday laundry . It's a great product , so high tech ,I have not used all the options . I'm sure my gas bill for the dryer is less because of the new machine, less water in my clothes, faster drying time. thanks

                          I bought this over a month ago and I am so glad I did! I was able to wash my oversized Cal-King bedspread with ease! Plus I love the quick wash option for my smaller/less dirty loads! Saves me so much time! The sanitize cycle is awesome for my dog's stinky bed! Smell fresh without multiple washes!

                                We purchased the washer and dryer approximately 2 months ago and our reponse in one word is outstanding. The ease of access with the stands, quiet running, excekkent features and capacity makes these machines one of our better choices.
                                There are many choices out there, but the quality and ease of seviceability when needed made this choice a no brainer.

                                            Had this product only a few months and I am getting adjusted to the different cycles & features. Cycles are very long on time. If you have a lot of clothes becomes a full day project. Hard to get use to not having a top loader where you can add clothes & adjust cycles manually. Also can't determine water temp have to trust settings.

                                                  I LOVE this washer! I bought this washer and dryer about two months ago and love them! The washer does an incredible job on the clothes without tearing them apart . The number of cycles and options for each load are incredible and it saves money on electricity and laundry products! Its even quiet and pretty!

                                                  We recently purchased this waser, not knowing exactly wht to expect. I have been very pleased with it. It is quiet, had a huge capacity, and cleans very well. I was surprised at how well the machine spins the clothes dry. I have reduced my drying time as a result, saving energy.
