Rated 4 out of 5 by from We bought our Washer & Dryer 5 years ago. We have NEVER had a problem. The only issue I have with it is the rubber lip that drains the water is maybe to deep? I find it gets stinky and holds moisture. Always leave your door open when your not using it. and try not to leave clothes in for to long or they will get a musty smell. Otherwise, we have had zero problems! It has worked doing laundry at least once a day for 5 years and we have moved with it 3 times (and not small moves, across the country move) in this day and age if something lasts more then 5 years I say its worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than yr and a half Had washing machine for less than a year and a half. Washing machine will not start. Takes fits. Had service tech out twice and not fixed. Would not recommend this junk to anyone.
