What's Inside Matters
For over 100 years, you've heard a lot about their drum rollers and drawer gaskets, their belts and hinges - the commercial grade parts they put inside their appliances. Those parts matter. They make their machines among the most dependable washers, ranges and refrigerators around. Available at AJ Madison.

But they realize you don't serve gaskets at your dinner parties. And that you've probably never fluffed and folded a roller. They know that dependability means something a little more to you than just parts and pieces.

It means having cold champagne to pop when the clock strikes midnight. Having virtually spotless glasses when your friends drop in. And cutting into a perfectly baked cake on your daughter's 10th birthday. It means having all the stuff you depend on clean, cold and cooked - on time, every time.

The way they put their machines together is never going to change. But they understand that the reason you depend on them is not only because of what they put inside them, but also because of what you put inside them.

They get it. What's Inside Matters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 199 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING WASHING MACHINE!!! I cannot say enough great things about this washing machine. It saves me a ton of $ on my water bill and it's quiet and has a lot of useful settings for just about anybody. The XL capacity basket fits a King size comforter with room to spare as well! 5/1/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Washes Well Having done a number of loads with this washer my over all rating would be good. Finding the cycle that best meets you what you want seems to be the key to acceptable operation. Normal operation seems best for many loads. It does wet all of the clothes by spinning the tub while the water is entering the washer. I find putting most of detergent in first and then putting the remainder on top works well. I am using liquid HE detergent. Putting the detergent cup in seemed to just collect water so I now wipe it out with a sock and do not put the cup in. Bulky operation is probably the closest to an old style washer operation. By the end of the wash cycle there was a nearly full tub of water. It does clean well. Delicate fills the tub between a 1/3 and 1/2 full. It mixes short times of agitation with longer periods of soaking. This is ok if you really have delicates that are not that dirty - not so good if anything is actually dirty. The top does lock. This seems to be a major irriatation for some. You can unlock the lid by pressing the start/pause button. It can take a few seconds or many seconds before it will allow you to open the lid. The longer times appear to be when the tub is spinning and needs to slow to a stop. The clothes do come out very dry on cycles that have a high spin rate. Having watched the water entering and the washer operating I know all of the clothes have been wet. The high spin cycle is just very good at getting out the water. And that high spin does lead to some clothes being very wrinkly. Yet I would say it is about the same as our old top loader. For shirts that usually are air dried, I have put them in the drier with the rest of the load and then removed them after 30 to 60 seconds - this removes most of wrinkles. I would say small loads seemed to be a bit harsher on the clothes. I think there is just not enough water in the tub. Larger loads seem fine. And as for powdered detergent or Oxiclean? On larger loads it seem to dsolve the powered oxyclean ok. However as some have complained of spots it might be best to avoid using it. A few other comments I understand that the wash board at the bottom is where the action is. Yet couldn't there have been a cone that sticks up another 12 to 18" to keep us from covering the center? It is all too easy to cover the center as it is. For the bulky description, why not say it fills a significant portion of the tub with water. The current description of a higher preset amount left me thinking it would higher but not lots higher than a typical load. Clothes come out smelling good. With smaller loads it may be too good. A second rinse it probably needed. But the washer uses so little washer a second rinse does not use that much water. 8/13/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not right for me! I've had my clothes come out dirty. This machine may be ok for people who don't get that dirty during the day, but for construction workers or kids who get really dirty it just doesn't work. I am using the right amount of HE detergent. Sorry I bought this. I might just give it away and start over. 9/11/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by I hate this washer! I wish I had done more research; I never would have bought this washer if I had known how poorly it performs. Clothes do not come out clean, even with an extra rinse as standard. Bulky items like dog beds end up with the top filthy and bottom cleaned, so I have to wash them multiple times and they still aren't clean. I'll wish for the day it wears out and I can replace it with a regular agitator washer, but with my luck this one will last forever! The energy efficiency isn't there if I routinely have to wash everything multiple times. I also dislike the very wrinkled way things come out after the spin cycle. No-iron shirts are no longer no-iron. 9/16/12
