When I first got this washer, I thought I would never figure out all the buttons that it has but believe it or not it is so easy to use. The washer comes with a book that goes into detail about each button and how each is used but you really don't need the book. Each button is self explanatory. The washer can either be stacked with your dryer or you can have washer and dryer side by side. Washer comes with automatic washer load detection (automatically detects the load and optimizes the washing time). Comes with a child lock that prevents children from pressing any button to change the settings during operation. This washer has a LED display (the display shows settings, estimated time remaining, options, and status messages for your washer. When the washer is on, the light in the display will illuminate). One of my favorite things about this washer is that it has a tub clean option. You just add liquid bleach to the bleach compartment and set the option to tub clean. The only thing I don't like about my washer is that you are only suppose to use he (high efficiency) detergent which is a little more expensive than other detergents.
