Pros: Off brand. Same features, smaller price. Durable and dependable.
Cons: none so far
Roper may not have the brand recognition that whirlpool or maytag have, but did you know that Roper is made by Whirlpool? It says so right on the machine! Based on our conclusions, (and using it for 1 year) this machine is as capable and dependable as one of the better brands of washing machines.
Let me tell you a few of the reasons we love our Roper super capacity washing machine. First of all, it is so quiet and smooth while it spins. You hardly even know that it is on.
It seems really powerful, I've watched it agitate, and boy does it move! Our clothes were noticibly cleaner compared to when we used the laundry mat.
My favorite thing is the CHOICES! You can choose from extra small, small, medium, large or extra large. Then, you can choose from cold/cold, warm/cold, warm/warm, hot/cold, or hot/hot. Then, you can choose from normal, delicate, light, heavy, timed, or permanent press. This thing does what ever you tell it to do!
Best of all, the bottom line is that you are paying almost $100 dollars less for this machine because it is not one of the top brands. From our opinion it works just as great, but the price was fabulous! Go check it out and see for yourself!
