This washer does what a washer should...it cleans your clothes and cleans them well. It is a little noisy but it's also at half the price of most of the washers. I have never hneeded to clean clothes multiple times like the other person mentioned and I wash at least one load a day. The water is auto sensed but you can have it do an extra rinse if you would like. This washer works great for my family and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good basic washer.
