I have had this washer for about two years now. I got it barely used, and it seems to work good. The only thing I told like about it is it says it's good for extra large loads, but if I end up putting larger loads in it it doesn't seem to get them quite as clean as I would like, and the barrell seems to shake out of place. On regular sized loads it does great, and somewhat large loads it does good too. I love all the options and setting it has. It has an option for just about every kind of load you can put in it. Overall, it has been a good washer for me. Energy Efficiency It seems to be pretty good with being energy efficient. I haven't noticed my bills sky-rocketing since I got it.And since you can set the dial exactly where you need it for the load size, you know it won't end up using a ton of extra water or power. Cleaning Time The cleaning time is pretty quick on it. Even on the super size loads it still doesn't seem to take hardly any time to finish washing. It also has the water/load size setting that will help to know about how long it will end up taking. I normally ahve a lot of laundry to do, and even with my laundry basket overflowing I can get all the laundry done in the same day with time to spare and do other things. Performance It performs pretty well, other than the occasional extra large load that doesn't always get as clean as I would like, and the barrell moving around. It works quite well, and you can set it to do whatever kind of load you want. Ease of Use It is very easy to use. It has a lot of options compared to a lot of other washing machines, but all of the options are self-explanatory. You just turn the knobs to whatever type of load and size you are washing and pull the knob out and you're done. There's not much to it. It's very easy to use. Design The design is pretty basic, except for all the options it has. It is about the same in general as most other washers with a few extras on what options you have on it. Durability This has held up to what seems to be a never ending supply of laundry at my house. The only thing that is a little iffy is the barrell moving around, but even when that's moving around and shimmying it still holds up and continues to wash just fine. I am pretty happy with it.
