  • I do and I love it!! Had it for about 2 years now with absolutely no issues. Don't really have any desire to go out and get the new fancy front loaders but hubby says he wants to get some whenever ours finally poops out on us. Can't imagine why since he NEVER does laundry.

  • I can't decide if I want HE or not. I read some reviews on a couple different brands and models that claim the HE washers are hard on clothes and rip out seams and wear them out. I have no idea how accurate that is though. lol

  • I do, and I love it. I have absolutely no issues with it. It is energy efficient and uses less water, which saves us on our water bill. What's not to love.

  • I bought a HE one last night. So far so good. Mostly it's just nice to be able to have clean clothes again without washing by hand or dragging them to the nasty laundry-mat.

  • We have 2- one we inherited with a home that we purchased, that is a lemon (Whirlpool) and is under class action lawsuit- lots of computer/electrical problems. We also have a new HE Maytag top loader-it's a gem. The clothes almost come out dry.
