Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fully cleaning my clothes I bought this product about 2 years ago, and it don't really clean my clothes. The underarm of all my shirts still has deodorant residue and still smells after drying them. I though before that it was the detergent and I changed detergent 3 times, but still same results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Our washer is 2 years old. The first year was fantastic. The washer functioned perfectly. BUT, into the 2 year, there is a greater and greater build up of standing water in the bladder just inside the door. It is necessary to soak up the 1-2 cups of water after each wash cycle. The door must stay open continuously to prevent mold and mildew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine Everything comes out clean and works it quickly. Saving time and money
Date published: 2014-10-20
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would NOT buy again!! These machines are simply too sensitive. If your water pressure isn't JUST right, it will stop. If the screens aren't replaced on a VERY frequent basis, it will stop. You can't just clean the screens and expect performance. The hoses provided are too small diameter to allow good water flow. Doesn't clean well after wash and clothes begin to smell dirty immediately after washing. Have called repairman 3 times with zero net effect. Extremely poor for a high price machine!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works better that the 7 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) It was bought 3 weeks ago and has performed well. It was the only washer I could find that would replace a 36 inch undercounter washer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Unhappy My clothes are twisted and knotted, getting ruined. I googled HOW TO ADJUST WATER LEVEL (then found this review page). Not enough water flowing into the washer.. My clothes just beat against each other! Washcycle timing is way off for a normal load, I can go on.. So disappointed!
