Great Washer

bigfamily 11/11/2021

We needed a new washer and while shopping we came across this unit. It had all the functions that we were looking for. The price was reasonable and made this purchase even easier. We enjoy the various cycles and how nice it looks and sounds while washing. The end of cycle melody is a nice touch. We don't have any negatives about this purchase.
