This front loader has been a HUGE disappointment... Non- removable mold, torn door sealer (!), glass outer door falling off, annoying (and un-muteable) alarm... Less than 3 years old; it's going on the street. I am also disappointed that the SMALL LOCAL appliance store I bought it from recommended it to me... It's off to the Big Box store for me this time around. IIIllllchhh.
