As a momma of 9 I was tired of getting washers that didn't last more than a year or two or ones that couldn't hold our larger loads like the king size comforter. I was amazed when I found this one on sale and after inspecting every possible aspect I decided to make the purchase. It has never had any issues and we use it on a daily basis. The set up is easy to use and the kids know what to select and push to start the laundry. It is so quiet too! I love how energy and water efficient it is and the fact that it spins the clothes out so well saves on the energy bill when it comes to drying the clothes too.
