Summary: I have had this machine since August 2011. I have now paid half as much in repairs as I paid for the machine. I have no problems with clothes cleaning - muliple cycles to cover just about anything you can think to put in the machine. The problem is the electronic. Constant error messages which always require a repair person to fix. each of the three problems I have had were different and required a $185 to $350 bill to fix. I am now looking for a replacement top loader.
Summary: I am not new to washing clothes and just bought this machine. It doesn't work fresh out of the box brand new. The first one, they said, needed a water valve." they replaced it and still no good. They sent a brand new out of the box replacement and still no good. Called the company and they said "that's how they work." I insisted and they sent someone and even he had to agree it wasn't right.
Summary: "The washer is awsome! I replaced my Neptune maytag that I had for years. This machine really rinses out the clothes and spins them so that they are almost dry...even bulky loads! And because the closthes are rinsed so well they feel so much softer because less soap is left behind.
Summary: After using a stack unit in an apartment this machine cleans like a dream. Take it easy on the soap and make sure it is HD. I have not used all the features yet but I do like the white and casual settings.
