What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Every load stops due to UE error My machine is only 3.5 years old and for at least the last 1.5 years I have been battling with the constant UE and ue errors on the machine. Nothing seems to help with the problem (it is level, I try to redistribute load by hand- although it never appears to need it, I've tried low spin speed and no spin, all different wash types). Even when the machine does not appear out of balance, the cycle will stop and need to be restarted multiple times. It typically takes me 3-4 hours (and probably 100's of gallons of water) to wash a single load. When the machine does work correctly (maybe 10% of the time) it is great and I love it. It gets the clothes almost completely dry and cuts down on my dry time! But 90% of the time its a nightmare! :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use We received this as a gift and have been happy since day one. I love the sensors that determine the exact amount of water to use. laundry comes out fresh and clean every time. It’s quiet and fast. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer that we have owned So far the washer has been great. Machine is very quiet and stable while running. Had a couple of He's and Maytag washer previously that didn't last 5 years. Hopefully this one will last us for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is fine A little larger and deeper than I really need. It's a real stretch to get clothes from the bottom of the tub. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Takes forever to run a cycle It cleans good but a 57 minute cycle takes at least an hour and a half if your lucky. On average it takes 3 hours with more attention to the spin cycle than an infant needs! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely quiet It's a good looking microwave.The four speed vent fan clears things up fast. The range light lights up the stove top a lot better than I thought it would have. However the best thing about this microwave is that it's by far the quietest appliance I have in my kitchen. Being as it's 1100 watt, it's heats up everything I've put in very well and in less time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rips clothes if spin cycle is too high Not worth the money. I have had for 3 years now and between the washer and dryer my clothes were ripped to pieces sometimes. Also my matching dryer died after only 3 years

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Particular Issues It seems wash; i.e., whites, do not get as clean as with previous machine containing an agitator. The loads at times get unbalanced and must be shifted. Articles, particularly bedding sheets, get "bubbled up" and one cannot tell if the underneath layers get washed properly.
