Advantages For a machine of its price, it is reliable enough to remove common stains and bring out laundry that is clean and fresh.
The Advanced Rinse Technology uses a new batch of water for rinsing to remove traces of detergent residue.
The 5 wash cycles and 5 wash temperatures allow you to customize the programs to suit the fabric type.
The automatic temperature control mixes hot and cold water to get the temperature just right for your detergent.
The Powerplus Stain Clean cycle is designed to remove even the toughest stains.
The Sound Package keeps noise levels down so that the machine won’t be a disruption.
The classic white finish gives the unit an elegant, understated look.
Bleach and softener dispensers add to the convenience options that this machine comes loaded with.
The agitator system gives the laundry a thorough washing to remove deep-seated stains.
The clockwise dials are easy to use and hold even when wet.
The lid switch sensor stops the machine when the drum lid is opened.
The dryer option spins clothes dry right after washing.
The machine is also compact, with a no-frills design that allows you to store it in a tight corner.
The top-loading design makes bending to load and unload unnecessary.
The adjustable settings make using the machine easy, and the capacity makes it perfect for medium-sized families.
To conserve energy, the machine regulates hot water, which is an added plus.
Setup is very easy and very quick to do with this machine because it comes with the included hoses, as well as a schematic on the panel for guidance.
Noise and vibration are not too loud, just normal for a typical top loader.
One of its disadvantages is that this unit has a plastic drum. Plastic tends to warp and break easier than stainless steel drums, so most users complain of the drum warping after about 3 years.
Another complaint is the fragility of the controls. After a few months of use they tend to break down especially the control dials.
When this happens, users cannot look at the programs they need to choose or how many minutes are left before the cycle is over.
Because the machine regulates hot water, some users find the water not hot enough for the load.
