Best Uses
We purchased this machine and read some of the reviews. This has to be one of the wors appliances I ever purchased. It kept on breaking down and each time I called customer service I was told there was nothing they could do. Finally it went out of warranty and I had to call [@] to repair it. I purchased a wrranty and after a few more hundred dollars it was finally repaired. This was not my first dealing with whirlpool I would never purchase any product even remotely associated with them.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
