    Not so thrilled with my new washer
    by: Anonymous

    We bought one yesterday,after being convinced of the benefits of an HE front loader. We brought it home and installed, with some difficulty only because of the weight, loaded it for my first load of laundry only to find that the "start" button was defective and while all other power seemed normal, the, washer could not be started.
    (I was also surprised that it's capacity was not what I expected). Took it back off of the pedestal,loaded it back up, returned to store. The only other washer in this model was a floor model. We brought it home etc. etc. etc. Voila! it worked. I washed two loads of laundry and discovered today that the door to the detergent dispenser was broken off - There was no trauma to the unit during transportation,installation or use. After reading other posts regarding the care and feeding of this machine- I am reconsidering my choice and am particularly concerned about the quality of this machine, considering that two of them proved faulty within 24 hrs. The Maytag top loader is looking better and better...
