    We installed our new laundry pair earlier this week, purchased from Sears in Lethbridge AB. They are on the main floor, sitting side by side on a ceramic tile floor. So far, we are fairly happy with it. Here are some comments:

    PROS: looks good, large wash drums for big loads, we were able to easily reinstall the door on the dryer so it is now hinged on the left.

    - doors are large, heavy and sit low. A laundry basket does not fit under the doors while opening them.
    - noticing that water and detergent residue tend to remain on the gasket after a load, so will have to wipe it down after each use
    - some vibration during spin cycles, but less than our previous front loader
    - problems with HE detergents that are required (case of hives!) so will have to use the "allergy rinse".
    - buzzers on both washer and dryer keeps reminding that load is done until you turn off the machines.

    These are all things we can live with for now.

    Very unhappy
    by: Anonymous

    Spent around $800 dollars on a Bosch front load Model MFVC3300UC a little over a year ago. Guess what it has sprung a major leak and it is out of warrenty according to Lowes, where I bought it.
    I though I was buying quality, but I guess I was wrong.
    Back to Whirlpool for us.

    parts & sears
    by: Julie

    we did the same thing with a unit bought from lowe's that someone had trashed by not removing the bolts (it was supposed to be a floor model..ha) this whole scenario took 5 months but it was in an summer house so no big deal.

    here is what you do, call a different repair tech forget sears .. they tell everyone that. we ordered the parts from sears and AAA appliance,
    2 different repair shops. when they arrived (sears insists on having them shipped to you..and I called bosch and had them shipped even though sears claimed they couldn't get them they did give me a list of the parts, which I faxed to bosch). 1 set (mind you the entire washer except the outside) arrived at AAA damaged and so I took the 2nd set that was shipped to me to lowes along with the washer (they picked it up), the repairman (aaa appliance pensacola) picked it up there along with the parts sears ordered and repaired it and returned it WE LOVE IT. Cliff at lowes nice, but there is one guy, assistant manager I would not give the time of day, Trey, Trevor, something like that, young, he is a train wreck. Foley AL

    HATE the vibration!
    by: C. Metiva

    My old whirlpool died after MANY repairs! I was excited to finally upgrade to a front loader, BUT I was NOT informed of the vibration...even tho it is an anti-vibration model. I had vibration with my whirlpool top loader and was finally looking forward to not having dishes and pictures rattle as we live in a mobile home. BUT I have heard that people who install them on second floors have the same issues. IT is not that it isn't balanced properly, it is!! Cement floors are a must for this washer!! It also smells musty if the door is left closed and will mold in the nooks and crannies of the rubber seal. The timer stays lit until you shut it to the OFF position. Now for the good points: I do love that it washes the clothes without a lot of water. It takes way less soap then top loaders. That I can wash larger items, such as comforters or small rugs. I also purchased the pedalstal, and like that I can store all the soap in there.
    Now it's time for me to purchase a dryer and I can't decide if I want to spend an extra $900 just to get the matching dryer. If I knew then what I know now I would have not paid the extra $$$ just to get a front loader.

    Negatives/Awful Washer
    by: Anonymous

    I hate this washing machine with a passion. It takes 1 hr. 45 minutes to wash a load of cotton towels on hot with an extra allergy rinse and the eco action cycle. You can't wash anything within 1 hr using the allergy rinse which we need. The towels come out so wet that it takes forever to dry them (an hr. or longer). The salesman evidently was very good and convincing me this was a good washer. We paid almost $900 and after purchasing it found out months later it is at the bottom of the line.

    After the water runs in you can not stop the cycle and add something you forgot either.

    After submitting my review in Sept., Sears replaced my washer. Hopefully this one will last.

    Service Non Exsitent
    by: Anonymous

    I purchased one of these machines less than 1 year ago. I was very pleased with it until it stopped working. Having bought it from Sears Canada, I called them. Took 5 days for a service call. They appear unsure of the problem and ordered 2 parts. A control board and water level switch. Sears gave them a date of almost 2 months to get these parts!! I called Bosch and was told they had them in stock and could send the asap. After 2 weeks of numerous calls to Sears, they still appear unable to get parts. What gives? The frustration of dealing with Sears and getting absolutely no satisfaction has been very stressful.

    Unfortunately, I could not recommend either Sears or Bosch, simply because you can't get it fixed in a timesly matter. I will be 2 months without a washer.
