  • The self-cleaning lint filter screens the lint and prevents buildup lint on the filter.
  • The Titan 25 Polypropylene Wash Tub is strong enough to withstand heavy loads.

    Advantages

  • The features are basic, but the cleaning power is superb.
  • No need to confuse yourself with hard-to-understand controls and complicated settings.
  • You can choose a setting with one touch of a button, from any of the washing cycles to the timed settings according to how long you want to spin the clothes.
  • The compact design allows you to put the unit in small, tight spaces.

    Disadvantages

    Should be recalled
    by: Theadora

    The description given here is from a manual that is written for all similar models but it does not have all these features that are listed in the manual. I downloaded manual as I was to ill to shop and the salesman quoted the manual butthis model does not have these features. Customer Support also uses the manual and says well your washer might not have these features. 1. The lid won't open. I waited over 10 minutes and had to pound on it. 2. You cannot fill with lid opened. You cannot see agitation or spin speeds. 3. the agitator and softener receptiacle come off. I found a way to override the lid lock and ran a delicate cycle and the agitation and speed are the same as the normal cycle which is good on jeans but not delicates. Water level isn't high enough. Can reset higher with wash but rinse will not be high enough. I suspect many owners had their delicates damaged and don't realize the problem with the agitator and spin speeds. This unit should be recalled.
