Cons: Water collects inside rubber guard and if not 'soaked up' after each wash, mold grows!
Been using this machine for 14 months and have been dissatisfied since Day One! It just doesn't get the clothes as clean as my former machine, which was a GE!
If I use more than the recommended amount of HE detergent, the soap doesn't rinse out. Clothes NEVER come out smelling clean and I often rewash just to try to 'freshen them up.' Sears serviced the machine under my maintenance contract and said it works just fine. I regret I bought it and am even tempted to replace it.
The rubber facing inside the door collects water which must be wiped up after each use. Then, to prevent mildew (which I've had!), I prop open the rubber facing with a wad of paper towels or a flashlight. No kidding!
