Key features

  • The WashSense Technology washes the load with care, penetrating deeply into the fabric without damaging the garment.
  • The Advanced Rinse Technology gives the load a final rinse with a fresh batch of water to eliminate traces of odor and detergent from the load.
  • The Balanced Control System is a vibration technology that reduces the vibration in the machine to lower the amount of noise.
  • Express Select Controls allow you to set programs with one touch of a button.
  • The Quick Cycle feature allows for short washing times. You can wash garments for as short as 25 minutes.
  • The Add-a-Garment feature allows you to pop in a garment or two even if the cycle is already on.
  • The TimeWise technology makes the washing cycle last as long as the drying cycle so there is no need to wait.
  • The Save Your Settings feature allows you to save your favorite programs so that you can use them the next time you power up the unit.
  • The Delay Start option allows users to set up the machine to start at the desired time.
  • The stainless steel drum resists rust and chipping.
  • The classic red finish gives the unit a fun, modern look.
  • The time remaining indicator lets you know how much time is left for the cycle.
  • The automatic water level
    adjustment means that you can leave it up to the machine to determine the right water level that is right for the kind and amount of load in the drum.


  • With the vibration technology in the machine, you get a machine that quietly hums as opposed to a machine that chugs noisily in the background.
  • A plus is the optional pedestal, which allows you to adjust the height of the machine with a pedestal.
  • This makes loading and unloading very easy, especially for those with back problems.
  • Another plus is the Energy Star seal that allows you to save more on energy and water use.
  • Energy-efficient machines save up to 15% of power and water compared to other units.


  • One of the main disadvantages with this unit is the noise.
  • The unit is very quiet at first, but after a few months, it tends to develop a chugging noise.
  • The drum also tends to rust easily.
  • Also be careful about the electronic controls, which break down first.
  • In cases like this, the child lock feature may not work as properly as it should.
  • When it comes to odors, a common complaint is that the load tends to have a moldy odor if you don’t wash the unit after every use.
