    so many bad reviews,, is this washer truly a BAD BUY!?   (11 Answers)

    there are so many people on the web, giving bad reviews... I purchased this set, just waiting on delivery in a few days but my concern is if I should change my order for a "better machine" it is truly hard to bas my purchase on a review since it seems people that give their feed back on a product are typically the ones that do only just to complain on the bad part of any item.

      Not a bad guy at all for the price. It has a super large capacity....bigger than that of a front loader. It runs much quieter than our old Samsung front loader. The spin is not quite as good but still very adequate.

        Answer

        It depends on how you set the controls. One rinse or two? It has a quick wash setting, a heavy load setting, and can be adjusted for light to heavy soil, so there are a lot of variables. But the plus is no matter how long it takes is that you can do a huge load all at once instead of having to split it and do two loads in a regular machine. And it saves on water and detergent.

        Why do people complain about wet clothes?   (6 Answers)

          Answer

          I've run two loads so far in my washer. A good size load of towels though not totally full or packed in on deep wash then a load of t-shirts, shorts and two pairs of jeans (probably 15 items). Both were supposed to have a high spun speed. Both cycles ended and it's obvious they had not spin. Clothes were dripping wet in the center of washer. This is what people are complaining about when they say wet clothes. And yes, I loaded it exactly as the directions said. After running the drain and spin cycle, they were properly spun out.

          We have this washer and use the correct detergent and put the clothes in so as not to cover the middle. Clothes are still soaked after washing.   (6 Answers)

            In the manual it says to use certain settings for certain loads. Maybe try 'High' on the spin setting. Also for the wash setting maybe try putting it on 'Heavy Duty' or ' Bedding'. I think this allows for heavier fabrics like jeans or towels, that do soak in a lot of water. I have not had a problem with items being soaked with water after the load is finished accept for one time and maybe one of my kids did a light load and changed the settings and I just assumed it was on the higher setting that I usually use, I'm not sure I didn't check, but the fix was just turning the wash setting to 'Spin' and it gave it that extra spin cycle to get rid of the extra water. My son pointed out to me that he forgot to add the fabric softener during a wash that he did and so when it finished washing he put the softener in the little pull out drawer and then set it to 'Rinse + Spin' and it worked perfect! Oh just one last thing, we fill the washer and don't worry about the middle. I just washed pillows and they were definitely in the middle, so I don't think you need to worry about that.

                Answer

                Bleach, yes. Softener, no. For softener you have to choose a particular rinse cycle ("Rinse with softener, or 2 Rinses with softener") and the wait around for the rinse cycle to put the softener in.

                  Answer

                  It doesn't get "loud" but the noises it makes are different. When the load starts the machine makes a number of clicks and the agitator cycles on and off. The machine is weighing the load to see how much water it needs. This can last two or three minutes. Also, as it's washing the agitator spins one way, then stops and reverses. It has the feel of a machine which is getting turned on and off again repeatedly. Again, this is not really loud, but compared to the constant hum of a traditional agitator it can be annoying until you become accustomed to it.

                    Answer

                    HE is "high efficiency ". It is detergent made specifically for HE washers, which use significantly less water than non-HE washers. HE detergents are readily available at the grocery store, and you use considerably less per wash than regular detergents. Only use HE detergents in HE washers, and dont use non-HE detergents in HE washers.

                      Answer

                      The washer will automatically adjust the water level to the size of the load, but with Deep Water wash I believe it fills up to capacity.
