Been wanting to see this for a long time! Seems like it would do better with a dual action agitator but whatevs...haha

thanks for the vid...I was curious as well....

at first I thought, not enough water, but then it added more, and it didn't seem to improve washing....

just seems if the strokes were slower it would be more effective...

I think I would rather have WCI/Frigidaire's indexing tub

Yea that's pretty lame wash action.
Yogi's right, the Frigidaire agitub does a remarkably better job moving clothes around.
And I've yet to see a low water agitator/wash plate design roll/bloom clothes over like WP's wash plate designs.
LG's are decent too.

The first portion of the wash cycle with low water seems very rough on clothes, then with added water it's better.

It just seems to me or is it he washing without detergent?

What is the purpose of the spin ramp up/slow down? My Tag does the same thing and I don't see the reason for it.

Possibly to moderate the extraction rate to avoid pump overload.

The detergent dose is skimpy per my measure (LOL).

Very unimpressed. It seems the machine cant make its mind up quick enough to fill the tub with enough water then agitate clothes enough and then when the spin cycle comes it just dabbles in it for a while before remaining spinning. All that start-stop wasted motion is gonna kill parts too soon.

It pulls the clothes down pretty well. Be interesting to see it with a fuller load.

The action of that agitator somehow makes me think of chopping with an older VitaMix with the reversing motor!Think I will pass on this one.A swap shop GE would be better.
