  • How does this washer stand out? »


    This washer lacks one of the premium feature of the MVWB950YG, with no oxi treat stains options. This is one of the three cycles missing from this model. It also has no delay start and one less temperature and soil settings, they have to take away some small differences to make the upgrade to the 950 worthwhile. Apart from these differences, the main build of this washer is the same having identical energy use. If delay start and Oxi treat stains options are important to you then upgrading is a no brainer , otherwise you’re better off saving the 200 dollars it would cost to upgrade.

    Videos Demonstration of this Washer...


    This is a very "salesy" demonstration, but does a good job of illustrating the features in moving video.
