Let's start off by mentioning that whenever I make a purchase, I read EVERYONES review. With that being said, there will always be positive and negative reviews on products. Here is my honest review.
I have always gone to a laundry mat to wash . So When me and my husband bought the washer with the matching dryer over a month ago I was super excited.
I work in an office and usually my clothes isn't really that dirty, but I love makeup, so i have what i call a "makeup towel" where i usually wipe excess (foundation)makeup on , so it gets dirty real quick.
My husband on the other hand works in a gasket company working with metal, oil, ect. So his work clothes is usually extremely dirty.
*The machine exterior is sleek and beautiful.
*Both washer and dryer have a nice jingle when the load is done.
*They are BOTH very quiet, compared to the machines I have been around in. I read some ppl complain about the noise, but to be honest it's a machine, it's never gonna be extremely quiet. But it's not noisy by all means. I'd give it a 2 out of 10 , ten being extremely noisy.
*The washer is HUGE, very deep as well. I am 5'8 my husband is 5'11 and we still have to get on our tip toes to reach the bottom .
We don't mind tho because we know that just means more clothes can fit.
* *You have to be very careful with the soap tray. If you forget to close it up and you bring down the lid , you have a big chance of breaking it.
* the lid is a soft close with I LOVE!
* The built in sink comes in handy! For small stains to scrub out.
*Timing: depends on what cycle , I do think some are a bit too long, but the quick cycle is fast but just as efficient. Like I said I have always washed at the laundry mat so those are usually self time at a maximum of 45 mins. These can take up to an 1:20mins depending on your settings.
*Read the manual, become familiar with the product.
*My electric bill and water bill didn't even make a dent . It probably went up like 7 bucks on each bills.
The machines automatically have settings for you depending on what cycle you choose. Some you can amend some you can't.
I do NOT like washing on the "normal " cycle. The reason is because I feel like it doesn't wash well due to the "eco warm".
When I first got the washer I washed my husband work jeans that are heavily soiled with oil and dirty. And the "Normal" cycle did not clean them well. So, I gave it another shot with my "makeup towel" and like the work pants , it didn't take off any of the stains or dirt.
I LOVE the "heavy duty" cycle! This cycle doesn't use much water either but , this cycle works! My husband's pants were completely clean. Not one stain!!! My makeup towel didn't have any signs of foundation or eyeshadow.
The built in sink actually helps clean small stains, I have tried it about 5x on my makeup towel. I think it comes in handy for ladies who have period accidents.This might be TMI but it's an honest review for the consumers, As a women we have all had to throw away at some point a good pair of panties due to our periods. The built in sink is perfect to quickly help lift off any stains and then dump it into a quick wash !
Bedding : I have a cat and dog and with the washer it cleans my beddings where there are no signs of pet hair. Both machines efficiency clean and dry big bulks. But it doesn't mean you should over stuff it.
The Dryer: I love it. I typically do normal or bedding but it works perfectly. If the dryer senses any time of moisture it will add minutes, which I personally like. Beats having wet clothes when u think they are dry. Right?
I would recommend buying this. I personally have used these machines for about a month and a half, and I have no complaints.
P.s. I took too long to add pictures, but everyone who has seen it says they are real nice , esspecially the color!
