I do NOT recommend this machine. If you want a front loader, get a front loader that loads in front. This one has torn buttons from our clothes, it ties pants in a knot, and it rips more fragile clothes.
We bought ours at Home Depot about 4 months ago. They told us that we would get $200 from the town for buying a low water machine. After installation, they then told us that we had to submit a request ahead of time in order to get the incentive from the town. We were scammed by the Home Depot salesman.
Unfortunately I didn't send it back right then.
(I should have)
I see these "top loading - front load" low water use washers becoming obsolete and going off the market as soon as this fad is over.
