Do NOT buy (unless you have a really cute repairman)! We purchased four years ago and have had to have four repairs, each time between $120 and $250. Plus, talk about water efficient- cannot get enough water to fill up to do a load, there's no setting to add more water! I never type reviews, but had to this time because I want to spare others the horror! Save yourself the agony & do NOT purchase this washer, but if you must, buy the warranty! Dryer works just fine.
