So I have a HE washer given to me as a house warming gift. I'm very happy for the gift, but this washer SUCKS. This washer is one of these high tech HE ones that weigh the clothes to determine how little amount of water to add. Half the time my clothes come out with dry spots and sticky from detergent still on the clothes. It doesn't wash worth a hoot as I often have to brush the dirt off that's still stuck and re-run the cycle. The washer doesn't have an agitator. It's just an empty barrel. The manual says it washes by spinning the clothes at a high rate... What happened to the agitator washers that used a dump truck load of water? I'm all for technology and environmentalism but this "fixed" a perfectly good appliance. A recently made a trip to several big box stores and inquired about washers. Only one store had none HE models and it was a commercial only unit.
