A new washer spinning at 800 rpm will not likely make that much noticeable difference but 1050 rpm would definitely make a huge difference.

So will a new washer that spins at 800rpm show a marked difference than my current older washer? Should I go for the 1050rpm spin speed for a noticeable difference?

The max spin speed will be approximately 640 rpm's.

The spin speeds on a typical top loading direct drive washer such as your model will still be between 600-800 rpm's.

Joey S,

THANK YOU!!! I've actually found a manual online but, as you said, the capacity is nowhere listed in the manual. I've been trying to figure out the capacity so I can compare my washer to other capacities to know how much of a capacity increase I want in a new washer. THANKS AGAIN!!

Would you happen to know what the rpm of the spin cycle might be? I know the older washers are between 600 and 800 rpm.

Look on the control panel and match it to one of the following for your specific size:

Extra large -- 2.5 cu. ft.

Super Capacity -- 3.0 cu. ft.



Super Capacity Plus -- 3.2 cu. ft.

You can look up and download the User's manual if needed at

but it will not confirm the capacity like Celene suggested.

I bought the washer used and do not have an owner's manual - thus the lack of information.
