This washer is an attractive appliance. It does a great job cleaning our clothes and is by far the best washing machine I have ever had. The settings are easy to understand and there are settings for any type of load. The stainless steel drum is easy to care for. The detergent dispenser is conveniently located on the front of the machine and has spots for detergent, bleach and fabric softener. The liquid detergent bowl can be removed and powder detergent can be used if you so choose. The only complaint I have is that sometimes when I use liquid detergent, some water is left in the dispenser. It is easy to empty and not a big problem, but it is worth mentioning. Ease of Use This machine is very easy to use. There are several options and you just turn the knob to your desired setting and press the buttons to choose water temperature, soil level of the clothes and spin speed.
