Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome in all aspects 94% I have had this washing machine for over a year now and I love it! I like what it does, how it does it and when it finishes. The mildew problem written by another review is due to not leaving the door ajar. All front end loading machines of this nature create mildew if locked up when damp. Leaving the door ajar, but still closed is the answer. Now the only issue I have with this silver model is the door itself where the handle is ... is starting to wear away and show not chrome, but the undercoating. As it is such a pretty piece of equipment - I do wish this issue could be resolved or replaced for me...maybe I should ask...All-in-all though I love my machine!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mildew gets inside the rim of the washer I have had this washer for almost 3 years. At first it was great but as time goes on you will experience mildew inside the rim/seal, the rim is the plastic piece that touches the door when its closed. If you search front load washers and reviews on the website you will see a lot of people thats having this problem. It even has a smell, I guess from the mildew. I have tired several things, one thing i have tried is keeping the door open after each wash, that does not work. I have bought the tablets you put in the washer once a month to clean it, that works for the washer itself but not for the plastic/seal that touches the door. I have been cleaning it with a rag and Qtips, i keep having to do this and it is very aggravating. I have come to the point I will need to wipe it down every time I wash cloths, if not it will get the mildew/slim in it. If you buy this or any front load washer good luck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Give it a year and watch it leak Go on U tube and see the problems with the internal pump/drain hose. Mine has dripped on and off for a year and now I am unable to do wash due to the amount of water leaking.. Warranty does not cover the part....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best I wanted to purchase an energy efficient washing machine that would handle my large kingsize bedding and this one does that very well. I have never had a problem with the spin cycle going off balance when I wash king size blankets by selecting the Large/Bulky wash load. This machine senses the load type! There are a lot of easy to select options for the wash cycle, including soil level, spin speed, speed wash, delicate cycle or extra rinse in the cycle that I use often. I have allergies so I love the TrueSteam Technology feature. It is very quiet and efficient when operating. My clothes get really clean, even in cold water. I also purchased the pedestal and that makes it easy on my back to load and unload. It has a digital display that tells me how long until the wash cycle is complete. The power on/off signal is a very soft little melody that I could turn off if I wanted to, but I like it. I chose the graphite steel color. My laundry center is neat and tidy with all my detergents and supplies in the large pedestal drawer. For the money, this washing machine is a great value and very easy to use. I have used this washing machine for almost a year and I am very happy with it. I think it is simply the best. Life's Good!
