pictoral review - my washer

So I've been planning this for a long time, and finally found my round to-it. (Most people claim they will do something when they GET a round to-it, but really they're just ashamed to admit that they've lost it.)

Remember when Bob proved his undying love for me by going shopping in the wee sma's of Black Friday? We snagged a new HE/Energy Star washer and dryer at Sears for 60% off. Now that I've had it almost a year, I feel qualified to give my honest review.

First off, I need to say that I don't know what the model number is. It's not printed on the machine anywhere. So there ya go.

Okay, what am I talking about?

What I like about it:

(top load is easy to get into, and with no agitator it is easy on clothes, holds more, and is as efficient as a front-loader)

(this is all one load!)

(This is the first bottle of detergent I've bought since we moved back to the US. I'm still using it! Yes, it's a big container, but we are 9, and it's been 10 months)

Things I don't like about it:

(THAT is also just one load. So my laundry room is always a mess.)

I really am pleased with the washer. The dryer's okay, too, but I haven't used it as much because it's still cheaper to use the line. Anyway, I like the pause (to add a garment), the soak, the delay start options. I like the cheerful little beeps it makes when I turn it on. We've had no issues at all with the mechanics. Thumbs UP.

I can't tell the brand from the pictures you posted, but I'm glad you like it.

Personally, we bought GE washer & dryer in 2009 and have been very happy with them. (This after many years of laundromat experience.)

There are many little things that make a home happy, and pretty high up that list is efficient laundry. :-)

It is Kenmore Elite. That would have been a good thing to put in the original post, even without the exact model.

It's always satisfying to have sacrificed something (Bob's time and sleep, in this instance) and still be pleased with it after time has gone by. I'm impressed with the small amount of detergent used and the big load it holds. mums
