Great washer!

"I have been extremely happy with this purchase. It holds a large amount of clothes, runs very quietly, and much more efficiently than our old washer. Best Buys price match guarantee also worked well for us!"

Hard to customize cycles, and cycles are long
Date:December 2, 2011
Best Features: HUGE capacity
Cons: Hard to customize cycles; cycles are LONG
"This is my first new washer in over 20 years, and it has taken some getting used to. I don't like that you cannot select independently without restriction the wash/rinse temperatures, the soil level, spin speed, and cycle length. If you don't want the combinations offered (and there are a lot of them), you are out of luck. For instance, sometimes I want to use hot water in the wash, but I don't want to have to use a cycle that takes over 1 1/2 hours. The shortest cycle is 36 minutes. I was used to my old fashioned washer where I could wash a load in about 20 minutes. I do like the clear lid, but I have to admit, I am guilty of getting somewhat mesmerized by the odd movements that it makes during various parts of the cycle. If you use the higher soil levels, the clothes tend to get tangled and sleeves/pantlegs get very twisted. It doesn't seem to be related to the spin speed, and it does have the option of spinning the clothes really dry, which is nice. It is pretty quiet, and it is HUGE. I haven't tried it yet, but I am sure I could wash our king size comforter without any problem. I can barely reach the bottom of the washer to retrieve clothes for the dryer. I am about 5'4" and if I was any shorter, I'd need a stool!"

"I wish I could return my washer,most of the cycles
do much of nothing and the weighing in puts all the clothes,towels,sheet's in knots
If I use a full tub of water for whites I can't get enough bleach in the water but the cup measure
Must say they look nice sitting side by side nothing for a nice clean wash

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™.
