I have had several washers in my time and this one is the worst I have ever purchased! It doesn't clean well AT ALL! I find that I have to wash clothes 2- 3 times to get them clean! I am a single woman and don't get clothes very dirty. I also don't have huge loads to do at a time. So, it's not that the washer is overloaded with clothes. I have to have the water selection on high water otherwise, the clothes barely get wet! Clothes that may have the slightest dirt on them, don't get clean. If I could give this washer a -5 I would. Stay away from this junk of a washer. With the cost of electricity anymore, this washer machine not only does not clean, it costs a lot to get just small loads clean. The worst!
