Consumer Reports ********
I purchased this item because it was rated as a Consumer Report ********. It's a "no frills" machine so it lacks some of the more sophisticated cycles on more costly machines but according to CR, these cycles are rarely used by consumers anyway. These machines SIP water and are very energy efficient. I built my own pedestal out of 3/4 inch plywood and 2x6's , tall enough for a laundry basket to slide under. Much better than spending $250 for a pedestal that's not even tall enough for a bottle of detergent. I've only had it a week so I will repost in six months.

Great... for about a year... then, watch out!
I bought this washing machine 3 years ago. It is now officially dead, but I've spent the last year and a half dealing with a "door lock" issue. It will refuse to run because the door lock doesn't function properly. I have to trick it into working. Now, the door lock is actually broken and it won't run at all anymore. I expect products that I buy to last, this doesn't!

Terrible quality

We've had this washing machine for approximately 4 years. Now, for the second time the rubber inside of the door has cracked, which results in water pouring out the front. I really had hoped this would have been a more quality purchase, but it was not. The clothes never seemed to be as clean as they could be, and the spin cycle was terrible. The delicate and hand washing cycles left whatever you placed in the washing machine absolutely drenched. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this product to anyone.

HATE THIS WASHER!

Bought this machine 2 weeks ago to replace a 10 year old GE front load stackable. The wash cycle takes much longer. The options are limited by the cycle you choose and it doesn't spin the water out very well. Glad that I was at least able to get a little money back because the price dropped.

Good product

I have only had this product for about two weeks but I haven't experienced any problems with it.  My clothes are not loaded with soap.  I don't dry my work clothes so I hang them.  They are softer than they were before.

The Affinity is a good little washer.

I have had my Affinity for about 6 weeks and have done probably 80 loads of laundry and not a single problem. The clothes are very clean when they come out. I use less detergent than with my old top load washer. I cannot put as many items in per load, but the loads take half the time of my old washer. We couldn't afford to get one of the bigger washers. Some might think the spin is a little noisy, but my house is always noisyand I don't notice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
