Yes. There was a sticker located on the front-top casing just under the lid that noted as much.

As it turns out, the manual says:
Do not wash waterproof clothes.
- This may cause abnormal vibration, or may cause the load to bounce, which could damage the tub.

Question

Extreme wrinkling in all clothes/fabric types

no matter the size of the load, the spin cycle (i have used the low speed), the water temp (used cold and warm) - all of my clothes are coming out severely wrinkled and mangled. This includes all fabrics (even jeans and poly pants). I do not leave clothes in the washer and remove immediately at the end of the cycle. I then fluff my work cloths in a 20 minute dryer cycle and they still come out severely wrinkled. We have had this unit for 3 weeks and I hate it. What an I doing incorrectly? How can I fix it?

I'm not sure of a solution, however we don't have that issue when we run the wash. We do place the laundry in the tub in a balanced and organized fashion (laying the laundry around the tub walls)... maybe that will help.

Question

Is there a spin only cycle?

I want to know if there is a spin only cycle, that does not add a fresh batch of water to rinse again.

Select the type of wash you want using the control knob i.e. cottons, permapress, etc. In the middle of the control panel is a selection for water temperature, then another row for other selections. Look for the one that says spin. Push the button below that column until spin is lit up, then hit the start button. It will spin only.

Yes, it does have a SPIN ONLY option.

1) Press the POWER button to turn on the washer.
2) Press the SPECIAL USE button until the SPIN ONLY indicator light is lit.
3) Press the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. The washer will start automatically.

The SPIN SPEED button also activates the SPIN ONLY cycle to drain the tub and spin clothes; for example, if you want to remove clothes before the cycle has ended.

Not sure why you would. The washer automatically senses the size of the load and adds the right amount of water. I've checked, and it always seems to put in the perfect amount of water.

No it is very water efficient. I bought it because I moved to a new house that had a septic system. This washer senses your load and fills the water level accordingly.

Question

Does this machine have a heater to heat the water?

Does the machine have a heater to heat the water to a certain temperature? or does it use the hot water supply to it and assumes that that water is hot enough? I am wondering if I should have my hot water tank temperature hotter. The same for cold water, in the winter time, cold water in Colorado is probably too cold; does the machine heat it a little bit to a more adequate cold water for the machine?
