    Perfect little washer!

    This washer is absolutely amazing for small apartments! Such a good price and does a great job washing. You can fit a decent amount of clothes in one load even though it’s smaller than a regular washer. Saving me so much money at the laundromat! I just hang dry everything so it’s perfect if you don’t have a hookup for a full sized washer/dryer.

    I wish I bought this sooner

    Wow, this washing machine is everything I’ve ever wanted in my studio. I like all the different washing features and how easy it was to set up. It is somewhat big which might be a con for some but it works great for me because I have an open kitchen. It hooks right up to the sink and drinks into the sink. I bought this paired with the magic chef dryer. I’m in heaven

    Portable washing machine

    Smaller than I thought it would be. Had one that was 1/2 size of regular machine. This one feels like its 1/4 size. The drain hose doesn't stay in place while draining into my sink so I have to put a weight on it. Perhaps if it were draining into a non builtin counter sink it would be better.

    Buyer beware

    Purchased and still haven’t been able to hook up due to getting specific hardware! Buyer beware: Best Buy return policy sucks so this have only 15 days to return/exchange or have any help with delivery damage. Thought I purchased this from Home Depot with a 90-day policy... unfortunately, not. Now to find out it’s also $50 cheaper. I feel like I bought a scratch and dent headache for wayyy too much money and they won’t do anything about it.

    Definitely a game changer..!!

    We bought this about 10 months ago. I wanted to wait to see how it did before i wrote a review. So first thing first. It did come on time which was a plus. It came well packed, and came in perfect condition. I was a little skeptical at first from reading the reviews, but so glad we decided to order it. Its well worth the money and it works really well was very impressed. We would definitely recommend this washer. Very easy to use and install.

    So far, so good

    I received the washer today. It replaced a Haier 1.5 cubic inch that lasted 6 years. I've only washed 3 loads that included a queen size set of sheets with pillowcases, 3 pair of blue jeans, 4 shirts, 1 set of bath towels, 3 kitchen towels, a pair of shorts, 3 pair of socks, and 4 pair of cotton briefs. Did a great job on all. So far very pleased. Only time will tell as to longevity. I bought the 3 year Geek Squad warranty.

    Compact and quiet!

    The machine is compact and quiet. It's through, and the washer cleans really well. The first initial thoughts were small and cute. If space is an issue this washer is efficient in size. I carried the washer into the home myself, so it's not super heavy for a young buck. I am satisfied with my purchase. Thank you.

    Great washer, wish all washer never shaked.

    in 2014 my Dad bought what I believe to be a refurbished Amana washer & dryer, or maybe it was new. At any rate by 2018 it was rattling and shaking violently, he even had to place a cinder block between it and the dryer because it would almost shake itself off the raised area it's on. This thing shook so bad it smashed up the plastic tub inside (I was finding pieces of the tub inside the drum and behind the washer), plus the bleach cup kept popping out.

    So this year I had enough and bought a new one. This one is nice and has Load Sensing feature. The buttons are different, but it's new and works great. It rattled once, and that was because I was washing a rug, and likely got unbalanced.

    I just wish they would design them to NEVER shake or put bumpers on the inside.

    Overall good product, bad help from geek squad hot

    It operates well. No issue yet. Only issue is the dryer came dented once and washer came dented twice. Waiting for the replacement from best Buy. Anyway, Best Buy took good care of it. They offered me discounts twice for the trouble. So I feel not troubled at all. Only thing is don’t call geek squad for help in such issues. Go to the store and the staff is really helpful. I went to the Tucson Wetmore one because Geek Squad made my trouble worsened when it came dented for the first time. Save your time by visiting the store

    A month later with new washer and dryer

    Washer and dryer work great! You barely even hear the dryer when it’s on. Washer has a great sensor on it to detect how much water it needs for the clothes. Highly recommend both!

    Hot Washer Right on Point

    This washer is great overall for those looking for a basic, durable washer without the bells and whistles. The tub is decent sized, the machine is very durable, it is simple to use, comes with clear instructions for choosing correct load type/features, does a thorough job cleaning clothes, and is excellent at removing excess water from the load at the end of a cycle. The only thing I would recommend for someone is to make sure the load stays balanced throughout wash cycle. Most loads stay balanced if loaded properly from the beginning, resulting in no issues. However, I had to pause it once due to loud banging, and had to redistribute load evenly in tub. This is just something to keep in mind as this is a very powerful washer. I have no regrets buying this washer and look forward to enjoying my clean clothes for many years to come with the help of this durable machine. The matching dryer for this machine is great, too. Ironically, the dryer does not have to work very hard given the washer always gets my loads fairly dry after a wash cycle (damp, with no dripping water).

    not a non He machine

    this was advertised as a non He washing machine. I was very upset to find out it is a He low water machine. the machine never filled up more then half way. its super sensitive when closing the lid , sometimes starting a wash cycle so that's not good, its super noisy I can hear it upstairs and the first few weeks my dogs went nuts every time I used it because of the loud sound . you need to really be careful on the detergent using only half of the recommended amount or else it will leave residue . i am finding that i have to put my wash thru 2 wash cycles to get it to clean right. the store cut the cost after they came over for a service call . but still not happy with it. the only good thing is it does spin out very well with no damage to clothes like some he machines. it does a great job of getting the water out of the clothes , but the water level really stinks for the wash load. i do not recommend if you have lots of laundry . this if fine for a single person or couple since small loads clean better , but there is no way it could handle the wash load of a family unless you want to spend hrs doing smaller loads to get them clean

    Solid contractor grade machine

    If you want a simple, basic machine without all the fancy electronics, this could be it. Lower cost to maintain. Big capacity, clean clothes, and just the necessary settings including Precise Fill which has worked well for me.

    Simple to use, Heavy duty washer

    My wife wanted a simple, adjust load, water level, water temp. and it does the cycle you want. This washer is great, and does a great job at washing the cloths and spin dries them well. Our washer does a minimum of 2 loads a day and is doing great, only one month so far but all are happy in the laundry room.

    Cheap but good

    Yes, it is cheap but it gets the job done. I overloaded it once with towels and it wouldn’t finish the cycle until I took some out. So now I’m just careful with the load size. Haven’t had any issues. Would recommend as a price effective option.

    You get what you pay for

    The flimsy lid is cheap and makes the washer hard to level. The spin and extra rinse lights would not stop blinking. Once we finally got this thing leveled, I was able to wash 2 loads of clothes successfully. On the 3rd load, the following pics shows what happened. I am very disappointed. I've purchased things from insignia before and had no problems. I trusted this brand. Now I regret this purchase. The only pros for this washer are that it's extremely quite, it has 12 cycles, it has a pause button, and it's compact size with a decent tub size. This is why I gave it 1 star. I will be returning this asap.

    Great bang for buck

    This is the 1st washer i have ever purchased and I am pretty happy overall. I love the automatic settings for water levels and such. The fabric softener tray is pretty handy and convenient as I don't have to pay attention to having to add it later. The only issue I've had is when i use the bulky setting, it does not spin the clothes dry and its still filled with water. I've had similar issues with the washer in my old apartment as well.

    Good washer

    Washes my clothes and blankets (regular comforter) just doesn’t wash the soft blankets (idk what they’re called). I washed a full-size soft blanket by its self on bulky (I tried the normal setting as well) and it wouldn’t spin after the rinse. It left so much water in the blanket, I had to stop it and put it on drain and spin.
