I love this washer!
Date:January 16, 2012
Best Features: Simple to use, fun to watch, clothes get CLEAN!
Cons: Noghing!
"It's almost fun to do laundry again!
I needed a new washer because by old washer died, and I wanted a HE top loader. After much research, I went to the local Best Buy, where the salesman recommended this washer. It was on sale, which was wonderful!
This washer has a huge capacity....much larger than my old large capacity washer. I can put in an extra half a load more than my former washer.
I really like the design of this washer. The control knob lets you select the cycle that you want, including extra rinse, cold water wash (heats up the detergent), etc. When you hit start, the lid locks, the machine rumbles the laundry around to weigh and balance it, and then it starts to wash.
Plenty of water, plenty of washing action.....my clothes get noticeably cleaner. You can pause the cycle to unlock the lid and add clothes. As with most HE top loaders, the clothes are well spun so they are barely damp.
I really like the design of the soap and fabric softener dispenser. You slide out a drawer, put each in a separate tray, and when the washer starts, the water runs through the dispenser, so the fabric softener is rinsed out. The fabric softener in my former washer would get all caked up....not a problem with this washer.
All in all....I really love this washer!!! So glad I bought it!"

Good buy
Date:January 16, 2012
Best Features: capacity, ease of use, love the soft-close lid
Cons: machine is somewhat noisy with the water swooshing and during the spin cycle, clothes sometimes get tangled together
"I bought this on Cyber Monday for $650, so I was pleased with the deal I got hoping the washer would live up to expectations. I wanted a top load since I read the front load washers need more cleaning/maintenance (which I just didn't want to deal with). The washer did not disappoint, and get our clothes noticeably cleaner than our old top loader (not HE). I am amazed at how far the top load washer has come, and am impressed at the engineering that must have went into this machine. Worth your money if you are looking for an easy-to-use, high usage machine."

Just because a washer is tough on dirt and stains doesn't mean it needs to be tougher on your clothes. In this case, it's even more gentle. Our new Wave™ Series washer is loaded with some hard-hitting innovations like deep cleaning WaveForce™ technology. It's also gentler on both your fabrics and your utility bills with smart options like ColdWash™.
