After 20 years I had to replace my washer and dryer. I was a bit nervous to purchase a HE products. However, my family and I love this washer! it is huge and super large capacity that I needed for my extended family and King size bedding. To date, i am delighted with both the washer and matching dryer. I am only 5'2" and sometimes need a stool to reach the bottom of the washer.
