I bought this and matching dryer 81182 due to the Consumer Reports recommendation. Love. Stacked them up. Took me a while to learn only 1 TBLS of detergent (HE of course) - or less for small load! Yes, I measure it. :-) You can do spin only by turning on and not selecting anything with the dial and then picking your spin speed. I often use the bulky option as it uses more water although it's not as efficient. As a newbie I still like to see some water in the bottom of the washer when it's cleaning. Bulky won't go above medium spin speed. So I'll wash with that and then take out items I'm drip drying and then do the spin only at high so less dryer time. I regularly do the extra rinse as well. Love that I can preselect that option. I had a 30 year old Kenmore washer which was still going strong when it outlasted the second dryer and I decided to get the stacked set. It was a bit sad to see it go but I love this new washer even more. Washes great. And now I can do the big comforter at home.
This washer does not drain properly. Clothes come out soaking wet. Sears home services came out 3 times to repair. The last time was to replace the pump. This did not work. This washer is not engineered to work with a drain above the washer so if you have a basement laundry room do not buy this product. It will not drain properly
I'm enjoying my new front loader it's very efficient and quite
HORRIBLE! And, trying to get a replacement is EXTREMELY
DIFFICULT! The first washer was damaged in the box.. The next one they delivered a week later had electrical issues and water leaked from the door..... Tried to get a different model and was approved, then given the run-around... FED UP!!!
Works great. Quiet too
