My husband and I purchased our washer 2 years ago when we moved into out new home and absolutely love it. We have saved so much money on dry clean because of the hand wash and delicate wash cycle. Also it's so nice when you have kids as well that are potty training the deep clean setting works wonders. Energy Efficiency The enegry we have saved with this washer is so much better then what we were using with a top loader Cleaning Time Cleaning time is awesome. Especially when you are needing things done fast you can set it on speed wash and in 30 minutes you have your clothes or what you need cleaned. Performance The performance of the washer is awesome. Like I said before with dry cleaning it fits our bedding and cleans it just as it would be clean at the cleaners. And it doesn't ruin them either. Design The design it's awesome. I love that is also has the storage drawers which is great for small spaces and helps with storage.
