I purchased this washing machine and it is really like no other I have owned in the past. As a single mother I am constantly doing laundry and this has really cut down on the time that I was spending on my days off from work washing laundry. I love the steam option, it gets right in there and eliminates odors and really gets things clean. This is also the first time I have owned a front loader which is really nice because bending over and reaching all the way down in the machine was never fun. I would purchase this machine again!
