  • Xtra Roll Action Plus Agitator
  • Brings the laundry to the bottom of the wash basket where cleaning takes place. It can effectively roll over and clean twice the average load size.
  • Fabric Sense Wash System
  • Once you select a cycle and fabric type, the washer automatically matches it to the optimal wash temperature, cycle time and agitation speed for customized care and cleaning.
  • Energy Star Qualified
  • Meets government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.
  • Care Control Temperature Management
  • Adjusts the cold and hot water inlets to reach temperatures that are warm enough to dissolve detergents. Water is kept from overheating to help reduce shrinking and/or color bleeding.
  • Quiet Spin Technology
  • Quiet Spin technology offers a unique suspension system that senses and adapts to each load, making upper-floor installation possible.
  • Cycle Status Bar
  • The cycle status bar shows you which portion of the cycle the washer is operating, including Wash, Rinse, Spin, Done and Lid lock.
  • 700 RPM Maximum Spin Speed
  • Faster spin speeds in the washer remove more moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.
  • Delicate Cycle
  • A reduced agitation speed and low spin speed provide gentle fabric care without sacrificing cleaning performance. For models with a one speed motor, the wash cycle uses alternating periods of agitation and soak to simulate hand washing your clothes.
  • Quick Wash Cycle
  • Clean small, lightly soiled loads in less time. Plus, increased spin speeds extract more water for faster dry times.
  • On/Off Fabric Softener Knob
  • Use this knob to add the proper amount of water needed when using fabric softener. When not selected, washer conserves the extra water.
  • Fabric Softener Dispenser
  • Add fabric softener when you load your clothes and it is automatically diluted and dispensed at the right time during the cycle! This saves time and eliminates multiple trips to the washer!
  • 12 Automatic Cycles
  • Heavy Duty Cycle
  • Normal Cycle
  • Casual Cycle
  • Soak Cycle
  • On/Off Extra Rinse Option
  • Bleach Dispenser

Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 DO NOT BUY!!!!!! I brought this washing machine less than a year and I hate it! I have had nothing but trouble with it! It takes over an hour to wash a load of clothes! We are a family of five so it takes ALL DAY to wash ! The lock feature I HATE!! It suppose to take only THREE seconds to unlock but that is not true! It takes about 30 seconds to unlock if I'm lucky! It does not wash our clothes well and the clothes come out with more wrinkles than they had going in! This washer is very loud! Now I am having trouble with the washer rinsing our clothes! I regret spending the money on this machine and I am SO MAD that I may have to buy another one because of all the trouble I am having! Washing clothes should not be this hard and this machine should have lasted longer and worked better for what I paid! Very dissappointed!!!! And how can this be energy saving when it takes over an hour to wash 1 batch of clothes? 8/4/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by good performance This washer has some unusual sounds as it works, but seems to get the job done fne. I would recommend it. 10/28/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by For a washer without lots of bells and whistles, it is a solid performer that is also energy efficient. This is a basic top loader that measures the water levels required for a thorough washing. Because of the automatic measuring, you cannot add anything to the laundry load once the door has locked. Other than that feature, which takes some getting used to, the machine is quiet, washes well, and does a great job with ridding the load of excess water. This means a shorter time in the dryer! It's a fine product. 10/30/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by SEB Overall very satisfied with the machine. Need to pretreat or soak heavy stains due, I am assuming, to the ater conservation features. 11/4/12
