Product Reviews
Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by noisy There is no center pole to keep the clothes on the side of the washer they were evenly distrubuted on. Therefore when I wash a blanket it all gets washed over to one side and then the washer begins rocking and making an extreme amount of noise that you can hear from the street outside. It would leave detergent stains on white clothing and now it makes noise on just small loads of wash. we got this washer in May 2012 1/17/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet Our new washer has taken some getting used to. It has no center pole which at first was concerning but it gives you more room! Our clothes still come out just as clean. I love that it is so much quieter than our old washer! 2/21/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Good value for the price paid. Gets clothes clean. 2/27/13
Rated 2 out of 5 by Noisy Inconsistent Washer The machine is very noisy - whirring, whining, clacking, etc. Worse, clothes sometimes come out with white streaks on them. I've tried shorter wash, longer wash, single rinse, double rinse, detergent in first, detergent in last - I can't find a consistent factor. The only reliable option is to always wash clothes inside out so that the streaks are on the inside. I would NOT purchase this product again, and would NOT recommend it to anyone. 3/21/13
