Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Kind of Washer For a New kind of Clean! This review is after almost a year's use. Coming from a conventional washer, the cycling seems unusual, but that turned out to be a good thing. The lid locks, but user can press cancel to add, inspect, etc. and the load finishes it cycle from where interrupted. The real surprise with this washer is how C-L-E-A-N the clothes come out! I thought it was just our opinion, then relatives who had a down washer, came over and used it and sung its praise as we do. The clothes rinse clean, smell so fresh and keep their fresh smell because there are no residues left behind. We didn't know what we were missing till we started using this. The no agitator design allows easy wash of large blankets, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my new machine!! I am so happy with my new washer! Ive had it almost a month and it's very easy to use. I like not having the old agitator in the middle of the machine. The lid locks for safety and it's quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Washer at a fair price I am happy with my washer overall. I love the amount of room in the washer, making it possible to throw in a comforter without the pain of a center agitator. The value for the money was worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Learn more before you buy Though I was pleased to buy this washer for a very good price, I have concerns about using it long term. One of the most important features in washer/dryers today is to be able to launder and dry clothes wrinkle free. This is a more important consideration than water and power consumption for most people in today's world. Because this machine extracts so much of the water from the clothes, it also puts wrinkles in them that require ironing.
