I positively LOVE this washer. Once I learned to not overload it it works perfectly and my clothes, bedding, towels, etc, come out perfectly clean. I only use pods as detergent so I can not comment on liquid or powder detergents, but the pods work great. I like that it tells you when it needs to go through a cleaning cycle and all it takes is a cup of bleach to do it, and I really really like the timer setting. My only semi negative comment is that the cycles are super long, but it it not anything that deters how much I love this washer!
