I have exercised it for a month - almost. Great features and options - cleans clothes well. Water hammerin first minute of cycle is a problem - short bursts of water should be mitigated with longer slower bursts.

So Far, So Good

I've done about ten washes so far, using various wash/temp/spin cycles. The clothes are clean and reasonably wrung out at the end of each cycle although the spin is not any better than the 16-year old machine I left at my last residence (don't remember brand but it never had a single problem over those years that included one move). I'm hoping this one will last as long. So glad I didn't get one of the large machines because I do not need that much capacity and this one takes up a little less space. I do 2-4 washes at a time and then I carefully remove the drawer for detergent, gently dry it and the cavity it sits in and the deep groove in the door seal. Then I leave the door completely open and the drawer on top of the machine for 24 hours. The rest of the time I leave the drawer and the door slightly ajar. All this in the hope I don't get the dreaded mold I've read about with these new front loaders. The machine is a little noisy when it is spinning but it is not a bother to me. The thing is very heavy and sits solidly on the floor without moving during wash and spin. Now that these machines are digital, the cycle end sound is no longer a jarring buzz. This one has a very pleasant little ditty it sings that make me want to do a little dance on my way to take the clothes out. I'm pleased with my purchase and have my fingers crossed it will last another 16 years.

Love it! Effiecent and simple to use.

I just bought this washer & I'm a bit confused online it says it's a 4 compartment tray for your detergent but mine only has 3 compartments. Prewash, main detergent & fabric softener only.. I don't see how I can use regular Clorox bleach not color safe bleach. In the manual it only states that I can use color safe bleach.. what if I wanted to bleach my whites how would i do that? I tried calling customer service but I do feel like the person on the other end comprehended the concept of what regular bleach was. He just kept saying color safe bleach could be added in the main detergent compartment. I don't know if anyone else can explain how to use regular bleach in this unit without it's own area for bleach to go.So as of right now unsure how I'd rate the washer only had it 1 day

Less than a month old and the machine is already leaking. Have to wait more than a week for repairs.
