I have been amazed by this washing machine. It has the ability to determine how much laundry is in it, it washes and spins heavy items like bath mats, it gets everything impeccably clean, it cleans itself with the so-called "Pure Cycle", I could go on and on. It takes the wash water and cycles it over the wash, like a waterfall. It handles delicates beautifully, and it can use cold water for heavy duty washing. I am delighted with this machine and its accompanying dryer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
