What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust Bucket This washing machine turns into a rust bucket after a few years of use. Do not buy it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So disappointed in integrity This washer was perfect for 2 years and now the top is completely rusted out. It washed great and truly would be perfect had there not been a rust issue [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Washer but poor protection from bleach Mywife has used this washer for almost 6 years and like it a lot. It cleans clothes quite effectively while using a very little bit of water. anice in our California drought. We had a problem with the tub when a plastic part broke early on but it was fixed under warranty. The worst thing about the washer is that the metal surrounding the bleach port rusts and corrodes just from the fumes from the liquid bleach. This started showing within a year and gets worse with time. Ane the rust comes off on the cloths in the washer. Other than that, its a great washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusting Out The unit is 4.5 years old and rusting out on the lid and around the tub. I don't think this should happen. The motor has a 10 year warranty but the unit won't last that long due to the rust.
