As mentioned weeks ago, our washer broke. After a little research on Consumer Reports we decided to purchase this lovely!
Oh, how I adore this new washer. It saves money because it uses less water. I can add the fabric softener when I pour in the laundry detergent which prevents me from having to run the rinse cycle again because I forgot to add it. It has a few more settings than my old washer which is nice. (I really like the Sanitize setting for washing towels.) It also spins out so much water everything dries faster, another money saver (less electricity). One day maybe we will be able to purchase the drier that matches but at this time, there doesn't seem to be much point since the one we have functions perfectly fine other than it is electric--my house accommodates either electric or gas.
