I purchased this washer in spite of bad reviews. I'm glad I did as this is an excellent machine. I've found it to be more quiet than my previous high end washier. You have to learn the settings to avoid the problems others describe. Express cycle is perfect for most everything.. 30 minutes top to bottom & it's done. Please don't be dissuaded by the negative reviews. This machine covers clothes with water fully for auto fill (I've checked) & cleans great. Absolutely no complaints. The noises are indeed different than the old technology, but it's fine. Not loud at all. You just have to use this a few times instead of hating it without giving it a chance. I found the right settings for my family & love it. Cuts drying time down, too. I recommend this washing machine. I'm very pleased & if you'll give it a chance and find the right settings for you, I'm certain you'll like it too.
I just had this washer installed today and already I hate it. I thought because it has an agitator and a deep fill I would be able to use water and not wet air to wash my clothes. Alas I was wrong. You can use the deep fill option and wash your clothes with water but that is the only water level option other than the high efficiency, miniscule water, option. So I will be wasting tons of water and time washing anything other than a full load
I hate this washing machine. You cannot watch the water coming in because the water stops when the lid is open. I went to soak some items and it just went through the wash cycle. Don't know why they even have SOAK. And the green light stays on until you open the lid. How fast will that go bad if I forget to open the lid when it is done. I don't even enjoy washing clothes anymore. In fact, I dread it.
Just got this washer about 10 days ago. On the first use, as some have already noted, it sounded different than a typical (old-style) washer. I was expecting to hear the typical agitator sound common to older machines, but didn't. So I was initially apprehensive over the purchase. That said the first load came out very clean, as did subsequent loads. My wife is very pleased with it. As for the tub, it definitely looks larger than the advertised 4.2 cubic feet. After the purchase, I saw a lower cost Amana washer and was surprised as to how much smaller its tub is given its advertised size is 3.8 cubic feet. As for some of the complaints about this washer, all I can say is: ?????? As one reviewer said, if you want a faster wash cycle, put the dial on Express. Also, the auto balancing feature is a BIG improvement over the former machine that required that this be done manually - after the machine had to be stopped due to bouncing all over the place. Overall, we are very pleased with this purchase.
Have had this item 1 day and it's going back. They advertise that you can do large loads but in reality it will not clean large loads well. The soap which must be added first with no ability to add water until the machine is loaded with dry dirty clothes will stain the clothes. There is no way for you pre-mix the soap and water until after the dry clothes are loaded. The clothes came out with dog hair still on them and the ones on the top never get agitated to the bottom, they just sorta float on the top. I don't know about you but we got real dirt mess here and will not compromise cleanliness for whatever they were trying to achieve. This washer is noisy as reported which I would have delt with if it just did it's job well. It does not. The clothes were also more wrinkled than usual and did not smell good. Please someone make what we want in a washer. Large tub for bedding etc, something like a old piston or up and down agitator system , non he so we can afford the soap, simple hot, warm, cold settings along with super, large.med, sm, and extra small. Also need cycles closer to 10 to 15 minutes. These long cycles contradict peoples busy lifestyles and are unnecessary if you build a good agitator system with deep fill option. Deep fill is a must if you want clean clothes. I will save water other ways, please we just want clean clothes in a reasonable amount of time. This washer has a great tub size but fell off the rails otherwise.
The wife loves it.
Downgraded from a high end digital and this thing is so noisy that you actually have to turn the tv up while doing laundry or you can't hear the tv. Also I have to run in on deep fill and double rinse otherwise my navy blue shirts all come out with white places on them, then I have to take a wet clean rag and wipe the white places off. I would NOT buy this again and am seriously thinking about junking this and moving back up the high end ladder. What a POC!!!!
