What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this machine and haven't even tried all the features yet. I like that it seems to "think for it self" and will time the wash according to the load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought last year model Bought the last years model (2017) because got a good price on them...got a bunch of extras that would have cost us more if we went with this years models (2018). Got the direct drive vs the belt, theres a drain hose on the little compartment for when you lose little items that were in your pockets (money, nail clippers, 9mm casings, etc....), touch controls, can even use the smart phone to start the washer...don't know what good that would do anyway since ya have to be home to load the washer...lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Washer! We bought this at Lowe’s where the salesman was very helpful and we got a great price! The washer is easy to use and has done an outstanding job on various types of loads. Now we need to get the matching dryer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality with Poor Customer Service Problems began after six months. Lights on dial spun, machine locked up. Followed CS instructions to unplug and press dial. Happened intermittently and increasingly in the following year. Now, after two years inoperable and leaking soapy water. Repairman is baffled. Replacing circuit board does not work.
