I like that this washing machine was reasonably priced and seems to do an outstanding job of cleaning my clothes. It cleans the clothes in a timely manner as well without bothering the whole house because it is very quiet. There are multiple settings to chose from so there are many options for cleaning. Aside from that, the machine is easy to use and understand unlike some of the newer models with many functions available today. Energy Efficiency I'd say this machine is energy efficient. It doesn't work any more than it has to and has multiple water settings to choose from so as not to use too much if it isn't needed. Cleaning Time Super fast compared to my old washer. I love that it seems to be saving me so much time. Ease of Use Pretty easy, the functions are labeled and easy to see so choosing which you want/need to use is a snap. There aren't many choices to choose from so it's basic enough for even the most novice clothes washer to figure out. Design It isn't too small or overly large which is perfect for me. Durability Seems to be able to stand getting the lid slammed on accident without too much hurt to it.
