This washer's control went out before one year old, they have replaced the "brain", springs, washer tub, and it is out of service again. Instead of replacing the machine when it was more expensive to repair than replace, Lowe's told me the same part had to go out several times before it was considered a lemon.
Meanwhile, I miss work to meet the service man and just bought a cheap washer to use when this one stops working.
I bought an expensive washer with the features I wanted only to get bad performance and poor service. Consider this before purchasing a whirlpool product.
