What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a great washer The tap cold feature is excellent. I wish the washer did not take so long on normal/similar cycles. Our hydro rates keep rising and we use our appliances after hours or on weekends and the 1 hour or more to complete the cycle can be time-consuming. I wish the end-of-cycle bell could be louder as this machine is in the basement and not always audible. It does hold a large load of laundry, which is great for jeans. However, it does not remove animal hair as well on perma press when you put in a larger load.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete piece of junk The only wash cycle that works is speed wash. Any other cycle takes well over an hour to complete the load. Forget about doing towels or anything heavy. The load always unbalances and the rinse cycle restarts. You have to manually stop the cycle and put it on spin only to get it to stop. Looks pretty and washes horribly. I can see why this model was discontinued.
