I absolutely love this machine for the following reasons: When the machine is turned on it plays a jingle (which I love) and it brings up a display with available wash settings. There is a small drawer with different sections for detergent, softener, and bleach. I have issues with this machine because of the following issues: We have semi-hard water and this washing machine is a PAIN to clean. No matter what detergent I use the drum holds on to residue. At least once a month I have to do a clean to remove odors. Speaking of odors, there is a door guard on this machine that loves to hold water. This part of the washing machine MUST be dried after the washer is done being used for the day because otherwise it starts to reek of mildew. If the mildew smell sets it requires at least three wash cycles with drum cleaner and bleach to remove. It is impossible to wash clothes with the mildew because the clothes pick up the smell...as does the house. Long story short, great at washing but requires upkeep to stay clean itself. Cleaning Time Heavy wash 32mins. Love it!
