But this machine does not get my clothes clean. Agitator seems insufficent. Clothes tangle more than they agitate. Have tried all kinds of laundry detergents and additives (expensive) and still does not clean addiquately. My old washer was 20+ yrs old and we bought it used and it worked well till motor went out. This machine looks new. It is supposed to be large capacity but if you load more than half a load the clothes just get wet not clean.
