This is an amazing washer. I have had it for many years and I have never had any problems with it. I live in a small apartment in NYC and this washer easily fits in my small closet. Despite it size I can add big loads to it. I can easily add flannel sheet, a duvet cover, four pillow cases and a fitted sheet from a King Size bed. The machine has many settings, including one for small loads which is great for delicate washes. It also has a hand-wash setting which I love. I have many delicate sweaters which are labeled dry-clean, but I just throw them in on hand-wash with some Woolite and they all come out perfectly fine. Just don't forget to buy HE soap because otherwise you fill have suds all over the floor.
