Washer Highlights

  • The Wash Sense technology makes sure that clothes are thoroughly washed without getting too rough on the fabrics.
  • The Advanced Rinse Technology allows you to have clean laundry without traces of detergent and soap residue and no odors. It uses a fresh batch of water to do a final rinse.
  • The Balance Control System reduces the vibration on oversized loads. Lesser vibration reduces the noise in the load. This makes it useful for using the machine in second floor.
  • Express Select controls allows you to select programs with one touch of a button.
  • The Quick Cycle feature allows you to wash smaller loads for as quick as 25 minutes.
  • The Add-a-Garment feature allows you to pop in garments if you forgot to include these in the first load. You can use the pause button to hold the cycle and put the garment in.
  • The TimeWise Technology makes washing and drying last the same length of time so no need to wait.
  • The Save Your Settings feature allows you to save your favorite settings so that the machine can use it automatically the next time it starts.
  • The energy-saving option saves on power by choosing the cycle that is best for the load.
  • The delay start feature allows you to set the machine to start when it is most convenient for you. Load the clothes in the morning and set it to wash one hour before you get home so when you do all you have to do is unload the laundry. You can program the machine as early as 14 hours before.
  • The stainless steel tub can go through faster spin cycles without warping and resists rusting and chipping better than other tubs.
  • The auto temp control feature regulates the temperature of the water by mixing the right amount of hot and cold water to get the right temperature for the detergent to work at its best.

  • Advantages

  • The stainless steel tub resists rusting and can withstand faster spin cycles better.
  • Most users enjoy a good 5 years before chips and rust start appearing on the tub interior.
  • Another plus is the drum light, which makes getting clothes from the drum easy.
  • Another useful cycle is the quick wash technology, which allows you to have clean clothes in an hour.


  • One of the main disadvantages of this model is the capacity. It is too small for a large home.
  • Noise tends to increase the more you use the machine.
  • The electronic controls also tend to break down easily.
