FUN Washer? After being without a washer for a week, we were happy to put this into action. My son thought it was fun to watch through the lid. I was thrilled with how fast I caught up due to the LARGE capacity. This is likely as "fun" as laundry will get. October 10, 2011
Love this Washing Machine I bought this washing machine last week and ready to recommend it to anyone who asks. I actually saw it a couple of years ago in Best Buy and knew I wanted it then. Two friends of mine bought it and loved it so I finally decided to take the plunge and get my own. It is easy to use and you can fit so much into the tub! My clothes come out smelling great and looking good! It is so easy to use I've already showed all my kids. September 28, 2011
runs good but it rust After about 2 years, my wife and I notice some rust appear around where the bleach dispencer is. Looking closer, I notice that the paint is starting to bubble up in different areas of the washing machine. I was told that rust is not covered under warranty. Other than the rust, it runs good.

Caveat emptor Purchased this washer over two years ago. Worked like it should but noticed it had a terrible odor frequently so ran the clean cycle frequently. It always got an "unbalanced" error when cleaning it and took constant monitoring and several tries to complete. Frequently got the “unbalanced” error when running loads of all sizes. Got a recall notice for a software update to fix the problem and after doing so, made it even worse. Just finished a load that took over two hours to complete. Researching this problem, have read hundreds of similar complaints, looks like a long, unnecessary fight to try to get it fixed or replaced. Caveat emptor. September 29, 2013

Our new Wave™ Series washer is loaded with some hard-hitting innovations like deep cleaning WaveForce™ technology.
