The Start button is NOT a problem

I can't believe the number of people complaining about the start button!! I read the negative reviews (and the response from Sears explaining how to properly press start) before purchasing this washer and haven't had a single issue starting or pausing it in the couple weeks that I've had this machine! I've used the button both to start the machine, and to pause it in the middle of a load that seemed to be getting off balance (and subsequently re-start after rearranging the load). In fact, the off-balance issue is the only one that I've had since I received this washer and is the only reason I took off one star. The couple times that I've put in a queen size sheet (along with other clothing items like shirts, pants, etc.), I've watched the load closely and it gets off-balance at the end of the wash cycle (during the higher spins). This has been frustrating, but it's also my first experience with a front-loading machine (and with a compact machine), so I'll be experimenting with different ways of loading it (maybe try the whole queen sheet set at once and no other clothing items?) to try to avoid the balancing problem. My clothes have come out clean, and the Max spin cycle that is the default of the Normal wash cycle really spins the water out of the clothes well. I have a little family of 3 (husband, myself, and our 3 year old), and this washer has a perfectly adequate capacity for us. I was surprised at just how much I could fit in each load. We live in an old house and while it is convenient having the laundry room on bedroom level, we simply don't have the space for the huge modern washers and dryers, so I am SOOOO grateful that these compact machines are made. Just wish they were a little cheaper instead of even more expensive than many of the bigger machines. Now I just need to go get some mini water arresters to stop the water hammer noise when the machine is filling. But as far as the start button, just put your finger in between the words start/pause and you're good to go. My goodness.

Need to play with for several minutes to start!!

I believe am one of the first to own this new model, and so far have done 6 loads of laundry in the 4 days I've had it. Getting the machine started is the only problem! After setting the cycle and putting in the detergent, "Press Start" flashes in the display and a light above the "Start/Pause" button also flashes, but every load I've done so far has required me to play around pushing the start button for 2-5 minutes before it finally decides to start the cycle. Very frustrating!! I have a service call set up

have it

I would definitely buy this unit again.


Exactly as described. Perfect size for our family of three and fits perfectly in our small laundry room. Dries efficiently, and have had no problems with the "Start" button as some others have mentioned; you just hold the button for a solid "one Mississippi" and it starts right up 100% of the time. Would highly recommend this duo.

Great washer


Just purchased. Easy to hook up. Very quiet. Lots of load space. Read the reviews. All the negative about the start button. Turned right on for us. Will give an update later.

Don't get unless it's the only one that fits


We got this because we have a narrow door to our laundry room, but it's a pain. The display gives you information you don't care about, the buttons are hard to operate. It shakes and wobbles like crazy, and it can only handle a tiny load of laundry. Luckily we found an appliance store that can disassemble and reassemble larger washer/dryers in home.

Great Reviews and Tips


I read all current reviews before purchasing this washer/dryer. I bought a used set that appears to never have been used. Today we hooked it up and put it to work. It is just incredible.

Thank you to previous writers for the tips that made me feel smart, instead of frustrated.

My normally cold fingers would not start the washer or the dryer. Someone said that was happening. Warmed up my fingertip laid it on surface and did not apply pressure. It turned on.

The dryer vents warm air from the front bottom. It is a nice dry heat, no moisture on my windows.

Awesome little washer


We live in a small, historic home, which means modern appliances just don't fit well in our house. When our old washer and dryer set died, I was so worried about finding a new, compact set that would not only fit, but would be able to handle the demands of doing laundry of a family. This washer is definitely tiny, but don't let looks fool you. It can handle 4 or 5 full-sized towels at a time. It can even wash a queen flat sheet, fitted sheet, and four pillow cases, no problem. I was shocked that we could still fit our normal loads in this compact size. Also, I have no idea why other users are having such issues getting the touch screen display panel to work. If you've ever used a touch screen phone or tablet, than you can use this display panel. You use the same, light touch that you would use with any other touch screen device. Its worked great every time and we've never had an issue with it. Love this little, hard working washer!
