Comment:
First and all subsequent loads filled the tub FULL of water no matter if it was small (4 towels) or large. Lowe's exchanged it and 2nd washer worked ok for 3 loads then started doing the same as the first. No error messages but tub would fill to the top regardless of size of load. Returned it to Lowes for refund.<br />One load got so out of balance, I thought it was going to come apart but, it didn't stop or show an eror message.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I wish someone had warned me about this machine's inability to go through a complete cycle without a UE (uneven) error code on many cycles. Very frustrating! I never would have purchased this machine if I had known about this very common problem!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
