What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalanced flaw - not worth extra capacity We bought this washing machine as a family of 5, tired of lower quality machines we've had to replace. Attracted to extra large capacity, but it has been no benefit when we put anything other than a "normal" load - constantly stalls out as UNBALANCED. Tried using the lowest spin and working up (after going through the full wash cycle), but if you can't get it to fully spin even on low, you're just out of luck. Had to throw away a pillow that we had washed all the time in a smaller, basic front loader that this washer WOULD NOT SPIN. Not alone, not with other pillows, not with other clothes. Advertised as being able to fit a King comforter and whole bedding set in 1 load - well that might be true but you'll never actually be able to wash it. Would love to get rid of this but spent too much on it :(. Also, it sticks out so far and so tall that I can't reach anything in the cabinets above - so not worth the extra capacity!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from High-Efficiency Washers Understandably High-Efficiency (HE) Front Load Washers are different than the older models. BUT the older traditional agitator models actually wash the clothes thoroughly rather than the new release of High-Efficiency washers. It leaves my clothes damp (even dry at times) and unwashed, stains are very difficult to remove/disappear. The rubber rim of the front loader also accumulates mildew and begins to create a foul smell after an amount of washes, not to mention one wash load takes ONE ENTIRE hour of wash time. With that said, I do not recommend the High-Efficiency front load or top load washers. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from lemon machine bought this machine 2 years ago with protection plan and has now had 7 service calls and still doesn't work. so much for 10 year warranty on direct drive. they replaced that as well. kept getting worse the more someone worked on it. now i am eating my protection plan and just buying another machine. they wouldn't replace machine even after all the visits- they would only say they would fix again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch! I was hesitant on buying a front loader from all the horror stories from leaks to mold and smell. Let me tell you if you follow directions, not one of these problems are of any concern with this gem! Washes clothes and sheets and huge comforters like a champ!! Love the steam option for certain items! Crazzzzy spin speed almost dries items before dryer! Most advanced washer we have ever had! Love how it adjusts load if spin is off balance automatically. First couple of washes I just watched in amazement how this thing is operating (first front loader) Weird how water intermittently fills instead of a consistent flow until full but I am sure there is a reason. 2 years old and still running strong! Hard to say these days! Love the many settings, didn't think we would use them all but we sure do! Worth every penny! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaving clothes with a Strange smell Whenever we select cold water to wash our clothes come out hot and stink! Not a moldy smell but a gross & strange smell! We have tried tried different cycles, used best smelling products out there and no matter what our clothes come out smelling. It's only when we select cold water and they come out hot, they shrink and stink! It's horrible. We had a previews front load for 13 years that wasn't as high quality machine but never had any issues. Please help! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity and very quiet Large capacity and very quiet, used to prefer basement laundry rooms because of the noise. New house has 1st floor laundry room so I researched the quietest largest capacity I could find and reviews said this was much quieter than than other brand. Since this purchase the other brand now has problems with exploding machines. Very happy I went with quality instead of slightly larger and cheaper. The one thing I would change is that some of the settings buttons are dark words on a dark background so they are hard to read. I will make my own labels with a label maker to put over them.
