I really dislike this washing machine and wish that I would have just fixed my old one instead of purchasing this one. There are many things that you cannot do with it and feel that it is not energy or water efficient at all. The machine weighs the load and then adds however much water it thinks the load needs. Most of the time it is insufficient and your clothes do not come out clean. In fact, the only way I found to fill the whole machine with water is to set it to bulky. Sometimes, I need less water, but still have to use the bulky setting to really clean my clothing. The door locks which is annoying to say the least. Also, I don't think that it is gentle at all and it has actually broken several of my bras and other articles of clothing. It killed my comforter as well. My old washer was insanely old with an agitator and was not a top model and yet I could control everything so much better and nothing ever got ruined. Seriously, skip this one. I waste more time, money, and water with this machine than with my old one.
