    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.

            Fantastic. Replaced a basic GE washer that was Ok but had the counter-weight bracket break inside 2 years. The GE never balanced well during spin, constantly moving or vibrating violently, this new washer is PERFECT. If it can't handle the weight, it stops itself and lets you know, which has only happened one time. FIVE STARS.

                              Glad to go back to a top loader. They've come a long way and this ones great. Auto Load leveler is great. No more drum thumping. Clothes just a little wetter at the end than front loader but what's nice is the spin cycle speed can be changed for the type of clothes.

                                  i thought it might be complicated to set the options for each load, but it is so simple! And then you cannot even hear it running it is so quiet. At the end it has a cute little jingle to let you know that your load has finished. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new washer, i guarantee you will be happy too.
