Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great Easy to use and washes great 12/30/07
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product [...]. Great product, very quiet. We stacked the units into a very small, confined area and it worked beautiful. Would recommend product [...]. No problems. 12/10/07
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Find This washer was my second choice. The fact that it had a non-parallel basket had me question the pile up of clothes at the back of the washer. However, this washer has not only surpassed my greatest expectations, it is quiet, efficient, and spins clothes so dry during the spin cycle that it cuts drying time/hanging time in half to a quarter of what it was with my previous top load. The sound takes a bit to get used to when it comes up to spin speed-it sounds like a jet taxiing, but the loudest sound from the whole unit is the water being added to the basket. 9/8/07
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer - fits so much stuff! This machine is really great - washes things quickly and efficiently and the clothes are really clean! 6/24/07
