I would recommend this washer to absolutely anyone, from a large family to individual living alone. It does hold large loads of laundry but is environmentally friendly and uses such little water even a person living alone would benefit from it. This washer was a gift, and a little pricer than others, but I think that even if I was buying it it would apy off inthe long run. The washer spins very fast and washes close by spinning. the clothes are just a little bit damp when they come out of the dryer because of their fast speed, and it would not take long at all for them to hang dry. The washer has numerous settings and temperature ranges to wash. The washer is a "smart" machine and will calculate your exact time of the wash based on the size of your load, soil level, temperature, etc. I especially like the soil level feature as it allows me to extend the time that my more soiled items are washed. It also has a delicates setting which i have found allows me to was hsome dry clean only clothes.
