It's easy to use, pretty quiet and the clothes are very clean.
The cycle times can be long but the clothes are cleaner. But that seems to be quite normal these days.
I like it that you can add clothes through the wash cycle.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined.
