My landlord decided we needed to replace a DO Kenmore. We went to Sears and they had a front load washer by Electrolux. It was never used and marked down to $259!! Everything works well but the dispenser tray is somehow blocked and the ingredients don't dispense correctly leaving bleach and softener in the tray with water. The second issue is the spin balance is way too sensitive. I now have a saturated pillow that was in with the bed sheets to help balance the load. My LEgs always spun with the same load AND had a drain and spin ability. This one doesn't. You have to hit rinse and spin. A waste of water and energy. We have solar power but still, it's wasteful to used unneeded power and water. I am not at all impressed but everyone else here loves it.

I prefer quite a bit more water especially for bedspreads and towels. I had to use an empty giant liquid detergent bottle, fill it with water and ad two full ones to get enough water to the wash and final rinse. I checked to see if I could make any adjustments but no luck. In going to HD to get a Y to enable me to do that through the dispenser drawer. I'll give it one credit for its high speed final spin. Not sure how many rpms it goes bit at least 1100.Any help will be appreciated.
