This washer does NOT fill the tub with enough water to agitate dirt out of the clothes. After the 60 minute cycle completes, the clothes are still dirty. Energy Efficiency A 60 minute cycle is much longer than standard washers. Although it touts itself as using less water, it uses way more electricity. Cleaning Time Clothes don't get clean. Performance Would rate this as a minus because of comments above. Ease of Use Based on my entire dissatisfaction with this unit this doesn't really matter. What I really don't like is the top being locked down so you cannot add anything during the cycle. To try to open the top during wash cycle, the machine completely drains. Design Overall design is terrible. Durability Too many issues keep popping up with this unit.
