This washing machine has treated us decently but there has been one major issue with it which keeps me from recommending it entirely. First, here are the advantages to it: it has a fairly large tub.
I can wash around ten pairs of pants at one time without any noticeable reduction of their cleanliness. Also, it generally does do a good job washing: clothes come out clean and spun out well. So in all it accomplishes my really basic needs from a washing machine: it washes things. The problems with the machine all boil down to this: it?s finicky on the water level. I have to fill it up to ?super? every time I wash (even with medium or small loads) or it stalls out and has to be reset.
I hate the water waste this creates so I always try to fill the machine up with clothes as much as possible which by its nature creates a backlog of laundry. I have to do it in huge time-consuming batches because this machine has to have the maximum amount of water or it just won?t work.
Those times before I understood this difficulty resulted in a number of clothes being ruined. I?d start the cycle and it would run for maybe five minutes then just shut off. I didn?t know what was causing this problem so I could never anticipate it.
Sometimes it would work just fine, sometimes I?d get a sloppy mess of soap and soiled clothing. I don?t have the time to babysit my washing machine and I shouldn?t have to!
