Pair with matching electric dryer 61202 or gas dryer 71202
washer has served me well for a year now the other reviews come on people you can pause machine and lid will unlock try reading your owners manual and these new machines work different from the old types and that does not make them junk i doubt these other reviewers would be happy with anything
After owning this for 20 months, already repaired once, will not spin out! Worst washer I have EVER OWNED! Stupid me bought matching dryer a few months ago.
Lasted only 2.25 years. Wow. Never abused it. The machine will not go from one cycle to the next after just a little over two years of use. I am close to retirement age, this was only my third machine. My last two machines washed HARD for me I had 5 children and used cloth diapers. Got THIS machine after kids grown and gone, hardly any use, and it's already defunct. WOW. It had nothing to do with misuse. Just designed to fail after warranty expires.
Thank god We bought the extended warranty,Two years after we bought it we had to replace the computer the transmission and hood latch and as i sit here the repair guy is trying to get it to go thru its cycles to no avail.The repair guy said these are all common and tend to repeat themselves,so we'll probably have to do this again unless we replace this with a different washer.
I purchased this contraption one month ago and am so sorry. It is very noisy, the clothes come out wrinkled, it takes so very long for it to wash a load (small or large), I do not like that I can't open the lid without permission from the machine.All in all it is a louse machine. I'm giving it away!!!
Bought this machine one day ago and it quit on the first load of wash !
spin cycle stopped working. spend $170 on repairs and as soon as the repairman left it stopped working again. now I have to wait another week to get him back. I was happy with this machine, but am beginning to wonder. I only do 2-3 loads a week, so this shouldn't happen.
I bought this washer 2 1/2 years ago. On average I wash 3 loads a week. The lights on the washer started flashing and the spin cycle made a loud noise. I called a repair shop and they said my transmission was shot and $300 plus to fix. Really 2 years old and I need a new washer. What a piece of garbage!!! Would not recommend.
We've owned this washer for over a year and agree with most negative reviews: noisy / tries to rebalance clothes by refilling with water repeatedly / locking lid is frustrating. Would not purchase again.
TIP - Understanding that the lid locks to prevent injury during high speed spins, there is a way to bypass this. Remove the latch from the washer lid and bend the screw tabs up into the lip around the lid edge. Since the latch is magnetic, and the washer will not run without the latch in place; you must then glue (a dab of silicone at each screw hole works well) the latch into place on the body of the washer. Now you can open the lid anytime during a wash cycle. The latch may come unglued over time - you can either re-glue it, or just leave it loose in place BEING CAREFUL NOT TO LET IT DROP INTO THE WASHER OR LOSE IT.
this machine seemed very straigh forward, not the case at all. the pause/unlock lid button is the most anoying feature on this machine. To start the cycle you must lock the lid, once that is done there is no turning back. The rinse cycle is a nigtmare, the downy ball that you drop in doesn't release the downy leaving the clothes very hard. If you want to add downy, you have to basically stop the enire cycle to unlock the machine and add downy, then instead of picking up where it left off, it restarts the entire cycle all over again. Making a 25 minute wash take literally 1 HOUR!!! Wouldn't recommend this machine to my worst enemy. OHH, and not mention the horrible service at the cross county mall sears, wouldn't buy any large appliance there again.
