Summary: Aside from the stainless steel tub this washing machine is about 95% plastic. By that I mean even the shock absorbers, the shock absorber mounts and any other part that takes a beating is made out of plastic.
Summary: This is an excellent washer! I have never had clothes so clean! It runs so quiet I didn't even think it was on. I washed everything in the house and kept asking kids for more dirty clothes! I got the classic blue - very nice.
