I have

this exact set. I bought them at home depot a few years ago. This is the first front loading washer I have had. I'm pretty happy with it all things considered. Plus it stacks which is a real space saver. HD was closing out the brand so I got my washer for $150.00 and the dryer for $100.00 I had never heard of the brand and money was a bit tight that month and my frigidare stack unit had just died (it was a terrible machine). I have two Boxers, Georgia and Richmond. They sometimes sit in front of the washer and watch the laundry cycles. Georgia gets a big kick out of the spin cycle. She comes ruinning in where ever I happen to be in the house to let me know the spin cycle is going then sits to watch the load go in the dryer. An odd thing with the washer...I found a penny taped on the drain port when I opened the packing box. It had come from the factory that way. I can't think of any reason that would have been done. The bottom line for me is the machines have been good little work horses that keep the pups entertained.

Oldhouseman, you had posted earlier about a spin/drain problem with your washer. How did you solve it? I have noticed on mine that if it gets "suds locked" it will never spin out.

Fixed...I hope.

I took the control knob off and looked it over. I didn't see anything in particular wrong so I put it back on. When I ran the next load the problem was gone and so far has not returned. I'm not really sure what was causing the control to stick but for now it's working. I'm keeping an eye on it and make sure I never leave the house when it's running.

The factory probably placed the penny there to use like a screw driver to loosen the filter cup???
