      Q:Does it have automatic load balancing
      by|Apr 9, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, this model features an Auto Balance Suspension System. During an out of balance load, the basket is allowed to "float" forward and backward, side to side, and up and down, yet it never touches the floor nor is it even connected to the floor. As a result, the clothes basket can move freely, and this is normal.

            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes, I missed that before I ordered but we were in a hurry to get a new washer. You do have to pour the detergent on the clothes. There does not seem to be a way to add fabric softener either. But, the clothes still seem to come out softer.

              1 found this answer helpful

              A:  The instructions do state to pour your liquid detergent on top of the clothing. There were concerns in the past for potential staining. This is not the case today.
