Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FML1234 Absolutely AWFUL!!! DO NOT BUY!
This machine is specifically designed NOT to wash clothes. It does not put enough water in to cover the load (See photo from user's manual below), and the directions claim that this is by design. It also tells you to only use a couple tablespoons of soap, or you'll wreck the machine. I've been doing laundry since I was 8 years old, and I'm not sure how you're supposed to get clean clothes without soap and water. It's like doing dishes with a water pistol instead of a faucet. Your only recourse is to do lots and lots of very small loads on the "heavy soil" and "Deep Water Rinse" settings. Forget washing blankets, winter coats, or pillows. It can't do it. Save your money and buy a real machine. I wish I did.

This washer is nice and quiet and seems to do a good job getting clothes clean.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AP This washer puts holes and shreds your clothing-DO NOT BUY THIS!
This washer shreds clothing and puts holes in clothes! Inside the machine, there is a lip that goes around the bottom of the agitator and clothes get caught and torn by it. There is no way to fix it and the company will not do anything to refund your money or help you because this is the way the machine is built so it is not considered a defect, luckily Home Depot is going to refund our money toward another washer... Photos are attached.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mo Horrible washer
This washer does not wash clothes. When I take them out, they have lint and dirt caked on them. In one load, there was a sock on top that was still completely dry (and dirty). I've included a picture of my son's baseball pants in the sink AFTER they were washed on the heavy soil cycle with this washer. The water is brown from dirt. Do not buy it under any circumstances (unless you only wash clothes that are not really dirty). And I cannot return it because Home Depot only gives 48 hours, which I wasn't aware of.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sjall Worst washer I have ever owned!! Total piece of junk!
No matter what anyone says you can not soak clothes in this washer for more than a few minutes!! I have tried everything possible and water always pumps out after 3 to 8 minutes! No matter what selection you make it still does not run enough water in washer to get all the clothes wet must less clean. My husbands jeans are fading and looking very old (only a few months old)! My white clothes are getting more stained and dingy by the week I even use bleach on whites and it hasn't helped. I use more hot water and also more water since I got this piece of junk just trting to get our clothes half way clean!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seekr Simple Straightforward Machine that actually gets clothes clean! Makes your Dog happy too!
Reminds me of when a washing machine was a machine not a high tech computer! Very basic machine yet there are enough settings to do just about any type of load. So far we are very pleased with this machine and the price point was great too! We slapped on a five year extended warranty so we have a great machine for at least five years no matter what. This one doesn't leave the white spots on everything like the expensive HE machine we had before. Its a bit noisy but it is really agitating and cleaning our clothes! Also our dog hated the high pitch noise the old machine made and he acted afraid when we did laundry. He is happy now with the new machine as the noise it makes does not seem to bother him at all. Save yourself some money and buy this one! It will make your dog happy too!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Worked maybe 30 times
I had this same washer in an apartment for a year and it was great - simple and efficient, although loud. I purchased it for my house after moving and I have used it maybe 30 times since I purchased it 2 months ago and now it's not working right. I'm going to have to have someone come out and repair my NEW washer. I'm not happy at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Stopped working after 3 weeks. Prompt service visit but 2 parts replacement, 1 on order. Will be visiting laundromat for the next 1-2 weeks.
It ran well for the first 5 washes but then stopped advancing cycles and stuck before spin dry after that. Amana ordered service call within 24 hours. Repairman found one poorly functioning electromechanical part and a malfunctioning electronic control unit (computer). At least one week wait before back in service. My concern that this machine with 2 quick failures is the lemon of the production lot. My local Home Depot Store (Flemington, NJ) offered no assistance but said "you should get on the manufacturer about it"???!!!. Great, will be getting to know laundromats again.
This highlights the distinction between between a "sell items out of your main lane" retailer like HD versus appliance stores whose core business is appliances.
