This is my first front load washing machine and I do have to say it is awful. It does wash the clothes but it sure takes quite some time for a simple quick wash. I have to constantly run and check on it during each cycle because it will give an error code. Not just one error code, depending on the type of items in the wash I can get a different error code. Which makes me waste time sitting in front of the washer watching to make sure it starts when I restart it. It is just too much hassle. But it will have to do until I can get something better.
