I purchased this washer to be able to handle my over-sized king sized comforters. It does a beautiful job on them. Because it is so big inside I can load it up when I am doing regular wash also. It saves on water and electric for me. The different settings are perfect for the laundry that I do. Ex: towels, sheets, bulky, normal etc. I love the deep clean feature also because it gets the smell out of things! You can not go wrong with this one. Make sure to read the directions on how to load it. Many people do not load it right and say that it doesn't work. It's not the washer's fault it is OE...operator error. I love my new washer and you will too!

10 Reasons NOT to buy this washing machine: 1. You cannot soak clothes in hot water. When I need to soak clothes, it is because a child had an accident during the night or there is a stain â€" both of these options MUST have hot water to soak the clothes in, but this washer will not allow you to do that. 2. The water it does allow your clothes to soak in (only cold or warm), is not actually soaking your clothes in a tub of water. It gets the clothes partially wet and they sit there damp, not wet. What good this actually does for cleaning clothes, I have yet to figure out. 3. Your clothes will never be clean unless you choose the â€œHeavyâ€� option. I have no idea why it has other options, they are useless. 4. The heavy option takes 90 minutes to wash a load of clothes, no matter how big or small the load is. 90 minutes? I find this absolutely ridiculous. 5. We were told by the salesman that the washer could determine the size of the load and would adjust itself accordingly. Yep, it sure does â€" 90 minutes for extra small or extra large load â€" it adjusts itself by doing nothing. 6. Many times after washing a load of clothes, they do not smell good at all. Therefore, the load has to be washed again. Yep 90 + 90 means that load of clothes just took you 3 hours to wash! 7. You have to wash the machine, empty, too! You have to buy special cleaning supplies for this as well. They are not cheap either. This also takes 90 minutes. 8. A regular machine like the old ones that you can turn the water on to fill up the tub gets your clothes MUCH cleaner â€" those machines are cheaper, too! 9. I tried for months to find something good with this machine â€" I can find nothing! 10. It is MUCH more expensive than the regular washers. You will be MUCH better off to get the cheaper model

It has plenty of room to wash large things
By Kim 56
from Auburn Indiana
I like the color and the large tub but its alittle tall for a short person . But I still like it.
So far so good
from Weaverville, NC, United States
I bought this about a month ago and am very happy with it so far. It replaced a smelly, moldy 7 year old front loader. So far it is excellent at washing clothes and I have had not problems whatsoever. It has a lot of nice features, is easy to use, and I hope it holds up over time.
Love the size!
from Mechanicsville, VA, United States
I bought this washer 3 months ago. I love the capacity it has. It washes clothes well and they always smell clean. I love having so many settings to choose from. I also have the matching dryer with the steam action and it's great to touch up wrinkles quickly. My only complaint is this washer is not quiet at all!!
from Colorado, United States
Uses very little water and does a great job cleaning!
Tons of features, awesome exterior looks
from Grand Rapids, MI, United States
My wife and I bought the matching pair of this model several months ago. The washer is very interesting to watch at first seeing as we were skeptical to buy the top load. So far so good!

By dissatisfied in texas
from Dallas, TX, United States
I've owned this washer for a few months and it keeps stopping itself, pausing the cycle, so after the (long) time frame per load, I come back to find it stopped. So, I started staying close to hear when it stops. Can't figure it out. I went through the troubleshooting guide and it did not fix the problem. The last washer I bought brand new lasted 15 years, I should've kept it. I'm very dissatisfied.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Answer to my laundry!
from Spokane, WA, United States
I have had this for just over a month & love it. It has everything I needed & is easy to use! No guessing here. It's gets everything clean the 1st time. I can wash 2 socks or a very full load & they all get clean!
Good looking with great features.
from Tillson, NY
I bought this item about 2 months ago and I am extremely happy with it. It's good looking, easy to use, and uses energy and detergent efficiently.
Just Ordered Matching Dryer
from Orange, CA, United States
I absolutely love this washing machine! At the time of purchase, my old dryer was still working fine. Just last week, it broke down. I was actually happy, because I will now have the matching dryer! I am sure that I will be just as pleased with it as I am with the washing machine.
