I wish I could go back to 1985 and buy the washer my mother STILL has

Summary: I've had a front loader and a traditional top loader...I went back to a traditional style machine with this purchase. I was sick of the constant musty smell and cleaning out the gasket (yuck) on the front loader. Loved how it cleaned, loved how energy efficient, but hated SO many other things that I wouldn't buy one again. Onto the Amana: The water levels are funky.
Summary: I purchased this washer on-line from a seller other than Amazon because it was cheaper and available locally for pick up. I have been washing clothes all afternoon and none of them have soap left in them and they are all nice and clean. I use liguid Purex detergent according to the directions on the bottle. I reside in an area that has hard water, and I am on a well. This washer also has a dispenser for bleach which is not listed.
Summary: Try to find one with the old-fashioned mechanical timer knob. Every third load I go back to the machine an hour after start just to find it stopped 2 minutes after initial Fill started. top half dry bottom half In water me detergent. Sometimes it's a bleach load so the bottom half of the tub is sitting in bleach water and the top have is bone dry.
Summary: This machine blows away our more expensive Hydrowave washer. It is a bit smaller but we don't notice the difference. Our clothes are fluffier, cleaner and this machine does a regular cycle faster. Very happy with this one!!
Summary: This is exactly the washer we needed. It is easy to use, performs well and is priced reasonably. The capacity if fine for us. However, note we are a couple and not a large family. I highly recommend it for singles and/or smaller families.
