    According to the manufacturer, they do not have min/max gallons used, nor do they have a chart that lists the gallons for every model. If you need the actual water consumption, you can calculate the average water usage of our washers. Look at the water factor (WF or iWF).

    For Average Water Usage, calculate:
    Water Factor x Capacity = Average Water Usage

    You can get the Water Factor (WF, iWF, or MEF) in the model`s product details or in the Quick Specs. Energy Star also provides the Water Factor (WF) by model number.

    For this particular model, the integrated water factor (iWF) is 4.3. From this we can calculate the average water usage per cycle to be: 4.5 cu ft capacity * 4.3 water factor = 19.35 gallons per cycle on average.

    Selecting the Deep Fill feature allows for extra water to be added to the cycle. Press the Deep Fill button once before starting the cycle to add an additional 3 gallons of water to the wash load. Holding the Deep Fill button for 3 seconds will provide the deepest fill level possible (26 gallons). The Deep Fill button can also be pressed after the washer has completed filling and is in the wash phase, if additional water is desired.

    When you use extra detergent or bleach to clean heavily soiled clothes, use the Extra Rinse option to better remove additional residues. NOTE: This option is not allowed for some cycles.

    The only cycles that cannot use Extra Rinse and Deep Fill are: Basket Clean Cycle & Drain and Spin.

    Deep Rinse option should be selected if you are using a fabric softener. Extra Rinse should be used if you are using more bleach or detergent.

    Hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with Appliances Connection and for participating in our online community.

    Warm water rinse feature

    Just installed washer purchased because one of the very few washers offering warm water rinse. Nice package of features but I find some confusion in instructions for Deep Fill feature. That portion seems a bit confusing at first but I will follow-up on this later

    Bought this washer to replace a 7yr old other brand that totally quit in mid cycle! Decided on an agitator model, as that is what I have always used over the years. I have tried impeller washers, as well as front loaders, and I prefer this type of machine. YES, it does make different noises than previous washers I have owned, but nothing house shaking or earth shattering! Read the manual, and it does all you need it to do! Clothes do NOT come out ripped, tangled up, or dirty. They do come out clean and very dry, requiring minimal dryer time. Also, with this machine being HE, you save $ on laundry soap, water, and electricity! Overall, nice features for the price!

    So far so good. Washer does good job. I like the information screen telling me what it is doing. My only concern are the press controls. Time will tell how they last.

    This washer is amazing. I'm a little old school and prefered to have a washer with a 2-piece agitator. The large capacity inside the washer is great and I LOVE the warm rinse feature. I would highly recommend.
