Best Buy Customer Reviews

DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER Posted by: from: on I have owned this for a year. We have had undergarments come out from a wash still NOT clean (visibly soiled)....many times. I chalked it up to "high efficiency" and maybe low water levels. TODAY I removed the lock from the lid and rigged it so I could watch the cycle. The agitator does not draw the clothes down and the top clothes never fully get submerged or agitated. The operation of the machine is basically the same as submerging the clothes in a bucket and swishing them around. You get what you pay for with this washer.

Great Budget Washer and Dryer Posted by: from: on I purchased this set while they were on sale for 299.00 each. After reading some of the negative reviews, I am not really sure what is so bad about this product. I did study up on HE before I purchased and feel that I have a decent understanding of how they would work. They do make some different noises than I am used to but they are a lot quieter than my old Maytag set. As far as some people saying they don't get your clothes as clean and they don't fill up enough, I am not seeing that as a problem. I know there are better and more expensive washers and dryers out there that may do a better job, but this is the nicest set I have ever owned and I am so happy with this purchase. My clothes are softer and they smell better than they did in my old Maytag. Before you buy, make sure you understand HE. The install guys were also very professional and respectful of my home. Thank you Best Buy.

Good washer for the price Posted by: from: LB,CA on I read negative reviews about this washer but I also read positive reviews. I'm glad I gave a try. This washer is awesome. Its quiet and it does what washers do; WASH. My clothes are washed clean and smells good. Do not believe those reviews that this machine rinse with not enough water. NOT TRUE. This machine sense how much water needed based on the load so you will not be wasting water. The machine spins balanced if you do not overload. Read the guide and you will be happy with this washer. If you are planning to buy the basic washer without the bells and whistles, this is the one. Go get it at BestBuy or anywhere @ $299.00.

Great, when it works Posted by: from: on Absolutely the pickiest appliance I've ever seen. Roughly 35% of the time I have to run a load 2-3 times because for whatever miniscule 1/8oz the load is unbalanced causes it to shut down and dump out the water (great water waster for drought stricken California). Even if it's a 2nd rinse AFTER it's already been balanced enough to go through the cycle and spin. As a result I have to wash smaller loads in the large cycle and cross my fingers that it will settle itself balanced enough to finish the cycle. I waited too long to do anything about it, thinking it would get better as it broke in, but now I'm stuck with it and it's about half a star better than going to a laundromat. If I paid for my water, I definitely would've dumped it months ago. DO NOT BUY.

Great washer Posted by: from: on When my washer died I needed to find one quick. I wanted a simple top loader with basic cycles. Inexpensive, easy to use but could still handle laundry for 6. This washer meets all those requirements. I originally found it for less at another store but with delivery and all the other tacked on charges the price rose quickly and they wouldn't allow for pick up. Best Buy price matched and we picked it up same day. Some reviews I read stated that this washer is loud. While it does sound different than what some may be used to it is the quietest washer I have ever owned and I believe it has quicker cycles than any other I have owned (though I haven't actually timed any) All in all I am very happy with this washer

Adjusting to the New Posted by: from: on Using a new washer takes some getting used to. This particular appliance does not run water into the machine until after the clothes are loaded and the lid is shut. The machine has a sensor that allows it to "know" how much water should be in the machine for each load of laundry. Therefore you are unable to manually set the load size/water depth. While I'm getting used to it, I do appreciate how efficient it is in completing a load of laundry in a short amount of time.

Great bang for your buck Posted by: from: on This washer is great. It has done a better job than other top loading washers I have had. It it bigger than I expected. I was able to load two comforters in at the same time and they both came out clean. "Talk about saving water and energy!!!" is awesome. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good washer for very little money.

High Efficiency NOT working well Posted by: from: on The notion of high efficiency is great, if it properly washes the clothes. I was not aware of this "spotting" seen on dark clothes after a wash. I troubleshooted on my own to no avail. So, I googled the problem, and see that it is quite prevalent with high efficiency washers. Yes, it defeats the purpose of high efficiency when one has to run the washed clothes through another rinse cycle to "try" to remove the spots on clothing. Washing clothes should not be this difficult of a task to ensure my clothes will not have spots on them after a wash cycle. I'm sure my lighter colored clothing have spots, just can't see them.

High Efficiency is not easy to used/bad items Posted by: from: on Pick-up yesterday installed today with no hassle but when we tried running the washers the high efficiency become the lowest i ever experience very hard to understand how to make it the cycle works. Follow the instructions and sensing fill then drain then wash light up doing nothing at all (repeatedly doing it over and over again for an hour). called Amana Customer Service unfortunately their call center was closed not a 24/7 service. Called Best Buy 800# the lady who answer was very courteous and nice. I have my Frustration and she answer my claims right away with the recommendation to get a new one or a service with no cost. A great customer service then connected me to geek squad department right away i got an appointment for the service tech to come. I thought the price was great and the brand was very popular but nowhere to get help from the manufacturer at all and its only the first day....I was very frustrated customer. Thank you Best Buy but sorry Amana.

A great washer for the price Posted by: from: on This washer works great, It does everything I ask of it and more, it is basic and simple to use. I like that it is fairly quiet and can be ran without waking my 1 year old daughter. It cleans clothes just as well or better then our old LG front load.
