I am a single 78 year old woman, so I was a bit concerned about being able to set up my machine by myself, but the instructions that came with this machine were very clear. With a good wrench and a couple of screw drivers, it was a snap. I was able to maneuver the 400 pound machine through a tight door and around a 90 degree turn into place in my small pantry area using furniture sliders. So great for a little old lady!
I just ran three small quilts through and got some of the dog and cat fur and dirt out. I can't believe how quiet this machine is and the lack of vibration is great! I don't feel like it is going to walk away the way my old top-loader did. And I think the clothes are cleaner. They're certainly drier than the old machine left them. The only bad thing is, one person doesn't get enough laundry to to play with.
