This is my Kenmore Elite HE3 automatic clothes washer.
The HE3 has a 3.8 cubic foot capacity, seven wash cycles (including delicate, whitest white and handwash), and an automatic water level feature.
It is so effing quiet, sometimes I go and check that it's running. Then I watch it for awhile and sigh.
"The Catalyst Cleaning Action with Direct Inject showers the load with a concentrated cleaning solution to completely saturate every fiber." That's from the promotional brochure. I love that shit.
My HE3 has a variable speed motor with 5 spin speeds, up to 1050 rpm, and is equipped with the optional 15.5" functional convenience pedestal. The 3-compartment product dispenser automatically adds detergent, fabric softener or bleach to the load at the appropriate time.
The stainless steel wash drum comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
For Christmas, I asked for a deep dish non-stick skillet and a pair of Ben Wa balls. I'm pretty sure I'll get both.
