Fantastic Washing Machine
Date:November 25, 2011
Best Features: The fact that you can adjust every load of laundry to suit your needs.
Cons: I haven't found anything about it that I don't like.
"I am really enjoying this machine. I have used it now for a couple of months and have enjoyed being able to put just about a double load of clothes into this machine each time and use a lot less water. The clothes come out clean and have all the water rung out of them. No need to run my dryer as long as in the past. I have cut the time in the dryer by about a third of the time....and I use a low heat setting now instead of using medium heat. I highly recommend this washing machine to anyone thinking of buying a top loader. I am glad I didn't go with a front loader. The barrel is one of the biggest and I can stop the cycle at most every point in the cycle if needed to add clothes or adjust weight which doesn't happen hardly at all. This machine is in my basement but it's really quiet and I hardly notice it running....in fact when I'm one floor up, I open the door to the basement to listen and sometimes have to go down the stars to listen hard to figure out if it's still running. Really a great machine."

Love it, Love it, Love it
Date:November 25, 2011
Best Features: Everything
Cons: Nothing so far
"Can't say that enough. My wife loves it too...and get this, she is actually doing laundry again! Shocking. It auto senses the amount of water that you need, its so quiet that I don't hear it down the hall and it is cleaning the heck out of our clothes. I bought this one on sale and I have not regretted that decision!"

"I really can not say enough about this washer. I have only had it for a month but with a family of six I practically abuse this washer every day. I have tried every setting on the washer. My clothes are clean. It cleans comforters and blankets with ease. Pillows as well as delicates. I have not had a problem at all. I love this washer and will be purchasing the dryer to go with it. I will say that it extremely important to take time and read the directions and follow them. The things that people say are problems are due to operator error. I spent quite a bit of time researching top loaders and this one seemed the best...well I am glad I went it."

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™.
