    Works well....but is finicky!

    • Verified Purchaser

    I bought the matching set of washer and dryer so this somewhat encompasses both. This is a front load washer. The buttons are on the front. You cannot, whatsoever, in any capacity, lean over this thing to reach something above in back or heck, you cannot even let a piece of fabric brush the buttons on this apparatus or your whole machine is stopped, reset, reprogrammed.....you get the point. These buttons are SOOOO touchy when you don't want them to be. Let me put it into perspective; these do not fit in the laundry closet on my second floor so the install team was nice enough to remove the doors for me. I then put up some curtains to hide the space. The curtain ever-so-slightly brushes the power button on the washer and IT STOPS! I mean like I walk by create a small breeze and wham-o....washer is reset and it does not matter what part of the cycle it is in. It's off. Since there is not a rinse only option....guess what you get to do? Yes, restart it from the beginning. Thankfully there is a quick wash cycle. The dryer is the.same.way. By the way. They are somewhat quiet but not like my old GE set. I use to have to check that to see if it was on. They are on a 2nd floor and while we do have some vibration when it is in spin cycle, it's not terrible. Now, as I mentioned above, these are rather large and due to the space requirement for the dryer....they do not allow the closet doors to be closed. So, if you are considering this set, you may want to measure your space then add however much is needed for the dryer venting. On to the good stuff. The washer works well. It's not super loud. It does it's job.

    Great overall

    Love it. So far I have used it for about a month on a regular basis. It runs smoothly and it is much quieter than my previous washing machine which I had bought brand new, My laundry comes out feeling clean and smelling clean. The drum is roomy and can certainly handle my queen size blankets. I have no problems operating. it is quite simple to use. I would definitely recommend it.

    good washer

    • Verified Purchaser

    The clothes come out very soft, and are only damp. I find the washer would need the pedestal for someone with a bad back. Although the same size as my previous front load, the tub is very low in the washer, and rather hard to get clothes out (I"m fairly tall) without stooping quite low. The controls are on the front, and very handy to reach, if a little confusing, and again, I must lean over to see the wash temperature.

    I LOVE this washing machine!

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I waited 6 months to review this washer to make sure it was still working like new and it certainly is. This is my first front loader, I couldn't wait to own a machine that didn't have an agitator. I was not disappointed... my clothes get so much cleaner than they did with my old machine! There are so many different setting to match the kind of load you're doing. I use the quick wash setting quite a bit since it's just me and my hubby with no kids, and out clothes come out great. What has me over the moon though is I'm able to wash my comforters at home! No more lugging them off to the only nasty laundromat near us... I hated that place. I don't understand why some are saying this machine is loud... it's very quiet in my opinion. Makes as much noise as a machine is supposed to make. And when they cycle is done it plays a nice little tune. It uses very little water and we've seen the difference on our water bill. It spins so well our clothes are almost dry and require very little drying time. I guess my only complaint is the front buttons are a little sensitive and if I lean over the machine it pauses, but there is a control lock for it and I've finally gotten in the habit of using it. Not that it's much of an issue because the washer is in the laundry closet and I don't have much reason to be in there when the clothes are washing. I'd also like to mention that I've kept my eye out for mold since it is common on a lot of front loaders. Happy to say I haven't seen any, but then I do take good care of her and I use the HE detergents, I also clean her once a month with Affresh. I very highly recommend this washer to anyone looking for a great machine.

    great wash machine

    when I had to get a new washer...I didn't know if I wanted a front load. I went to different stores who sold washers and asked several questions. one thing I got out of my research...don't buy ones with too much stuff on them ... more things to go wrong. This washer was a good value and my clothes really get cleaned. Also, very easy to use. I will buy the dryer when my dryer goes out and then stack them.

    Good Front Loader

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    This front loader is quiet and efficient. The only downside that I have experienced is that the door is not reversible, which stinks for my installation. This was not obvious during my pre-purchase review of products. Be ware, the door only opens right to left so the washer must be installed on the left of the dryer to have the doors open away from each other.

    Horrible Installation Experience--mediocre washer


    I bought this washer because it had a good review from Consumer Reports. It is mediocre at best--not as gentle and does not get my clothes as clean as my previous washer. But the worst part has been the installation experience with Best Buy. The delivery crew installed the water hoses backwards. They tested the washer after installation but apparently did not realize their error. I came home from work and washed a load of delicate cold water wash after the washer was installed. When I went to hang up my delicate laundry, it was piping hot. My husband called Best Buy immediately, and they told him the damage would be covered by their insurance and gave him instructions for filing a claim. He filed the claim, and reversed the fill hoses on the washer. Unfortunately, Best Buy outsourced the delivery and installation to Spirit Delivery, and they have refused to take any responsibility for the damage they caused. My husband has been going back and forth with them for over a month. We have followed all instructions, sent them a list of the damaged items as well as photos as requested. Meanwhile, I have $600 worth of ruined sweaters, wool socks, and other items. This is the first and last appliance I will purchase from Best Buy. I am extremely disappointed that they refuse to take any responsibility for their error.

    Love it, mostly!

    This has been on my "to get" list for a long time! Really love it. Only thing I'm unhappy with is it won't spin my rubber backed bathroom rug dry! No matter how I lay it & put it on drain & spin, it flops around where the rubber prevents it from spinning dry. Had to take it to my neighbor's house, now that is sad.
