i had great hopes for this GHWN5250DWS machine, and did lots of research. i always soak my clothes for several hours during the wash and rinse cycles, and the push-pull dial knobs on the older washing machines are perfect for this. i thought i could still do this by lifting the lid or hitting the pause button, but the electronic brain still decided it knew best, and was completely unpredictable. often i had to pull the plug out just to get it to stop agitating, even with the power button off and no lights showing. then when i would turn it on again, it would not start even though the light display showed it was in the wash cycle with 50+ minutes left (and i never used the machine soak setting). so it was completely unpredictable and unreliable as to what it was going to do next and how long it would take. there was no reset button and turning the power button off or pulling the plug did not reset it. finally, all i could do was put it on "wash cottons," and let it fill, and finally after maybe 5 minutes i would hear that it was agitating, then i would go stand by it for another five minutes, and then turn the knob to drain and spin. and finally it would turn itself off, and then i would start the whole process over again for the rinse cycle. finally it leaked out the bottom two times (the leak was not the drainpipe--i put a pan under it and it was dry, but the towel i put on the floor at the side got wet). so after the second leaking. i called and asked to replace it with this much simpler machine GTDP280EDWW with a push-pull dial and far fewer setting and choices which confused the electronic circuits of the Adora3.9 model. the GTDP280ED also has a circuit board inside trying to think its way through the menus, but at least the menus are much simpler. i would pay twice as much for an old style machine with controls that directly controlled the actions of the wash cycle. i hear speed queen still makes a washer like that, but home depot does not sell them. i really hate these new electronic circuit board controls on washing machines.
Difficult to Use,
leaked two times,
electronic controls completely unreliable,
extremely slow to respond to controls,
power button does not stop it must pull out plug,
hideous waste of time,
