This is the worst washer ever. Unfortunately it's the only one that fit into our laundry area. We have what is like a tiny closet for the washer and dryer so our options were limited. First, every cycle is extremely long. It could take all day to do three loads of laundry. It counts down the time in minutes but when it says five minutes, it's done in about 30. I have to use the quick cycle because it just takes way too long for the others. The clothes also stick to the side and don't really get agitated well so they don't get as clean as I would like. I have to pre-treat a lot. Good luck getting kids' play clothes clean! It's also pretty load when it spins and tends to shake a lot. It's small and I can't fit comforters or blankets in it. I have to spot clean or I could go to the laundromat for those. If you put it on hr wrong setting and start, you cant stop it. You have to spin and drain which takes 10-15 minutes. And it always says "suds" which is supposed to mean too much soap, but I've forgotten soap and it still says "suds" and takes two hours a load.
