wanted to return it the day after i purchased it! found out the balance was wrong when it was installed. don't use a level' just adjust the legs on it so the wash tub is centered in the cabinet. thats all. i went from wanting to return it to being really happy with it. by far the best washer we've ever owned, by far! it cleans your clothes much much better. gives you a lot of options, simple to operate. so quiet you will at firdt go in and check to see if it's still running, at a 1,100 rpm rinse speed the cloths come out almost dry. the bad reviews i've read all come from not centering the wash basket in the center of the cabinet. if it isn't the machine just keeps on trying to re balance over and over so the cloths don't get washed properly and it takes forever to do a load. i went back where i bought it to return it as i thought it was a piece of junk at first. after centering the basket i found out what a great washer it is. it's a beautiful machine with lots of easy to use options, and it's so sturdy. by far the best machine we've ever owned, hands down!!!

At the end of the cycle, all the clothes are tied up together in knots. Have to use a lot more soap to get the clothes clean. Softener does not dispense properly. Sometimes jeans must go through 2 cycles to get the dirt out. Likes how quiet it is and it doesn't jump around.

    We are a family of 8 and we LOVE this dryer. The large capacity has cut down on the number of loads we do every day, which has saved us time. It is very efficient and we love not using so much energy to wash clothes!

                The washer is everything that was stated. It is quiet. The Company stands behind their product. I had a scratch on my original washer. I thought that they would have sent someone to put someone to repair it with some epoxy. They sent me a new machine. That is what I call a great company.

                                Have had for a couple months and very pleased with quality and features. Only reason I gave a 4 on features is I like a hand wash option but you can adjust the spin so it is not really a problem. Clothes tend to be a bit more wrinkled on Cotton/Regular setting so I am using Perma Press which seems to solve the problem. It is very easy to use - set in seconds. Also, like the length of cycle time feature and auto balance.

                                    Great washer. Not certain that my delivery guys got is totally balanced. Some shaking and knocking when I am doing a heavy load. My drainage pan was the wrong size. Make certain you measure you current pan before you have delivery and installation. Wish I had though of ordering the steel-wrapped water lines instead of the standard rubber ones.

                                    Service and delivery comments:

                                    I have always received outstanding delivery and installation from ABT. That is the reason I keep going back to them instead of choosing another store. Prices are the same from store to store, but delivery and installation are not.
