Comment:
I hate this machine - I hate it - I hate it. I cannot adjust the wash time. There is not a medium setting for a normal wash load. The amount of water saved is negated by the energy used for the length of time it takes for clothes to go through a cycle. It does not clean heavyly soiled clothes.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This machine washes your clothes like its using a stick in the river - MINUS THE STICK.<br />It leaves lint on everything coming out of the washer.<br />It even failed to unfold a pair of Lycra Capri pants after it had gone thru the cycle - Can you believe that?! <br />You can not adjust ANYTHING in the settings. If you try to interrupt a cycle in dumps the entire tank and starts again.<br />It takes at least ONE HOUR to do a load no matter what you put in it. It breaks down.<br />It demands a clean-washer cycle constantly.<br />I HATE IT. SO MUCH.

Comment:
I was very concerned after seeing some reviews indicating the washer would not clean well due to low water levels. We actually almost switched to a front loader but decided to stick with our original choice. Glad we did, this washer works well. Tons of adjustable settings and cleans very well, better than our old Maytag that covered clothes with water. It does put small amount of water in the tub but all clothes come out wet and clean, even the clothes we use to work in the yard. I would recommend this.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
