Washing Machine Whirlpool WTW5700XW0

We are very satisfied with this washing machine and highly recommend it.

My review is rather long, even though I try to be concise and to the point.
When we had to purchase a new washing machine after our last one began to fade after 14 years (and it was already used), we consulted a leading consumer evaluation service. Our final choice was among the top loading 'high efficiency' machines recommended.

These new high efficiency machines differ substantially from the older machines. The sounds they make, the cycles they go through, the amount of water they use, are all very different from the older washing machines.

We chose this high efficiency model for these reasons:

1) it was highly recommended by the consumer evaluation service
2) it is rated Cier 3
3) it has a glass top

The competitor (for us) cost another $100 for a glass top and was cier 2 (a lower rating). That clinched it for us to get the Whirlpool rather than the (xxx). I really wanted to get the xxx because that brand has served my family well for more then sixty years, and it was the brand of the machine we were replacing. But to pay $100 more to get a lesser efficiency rated machine just for the glass top? -- well, not this time.

We were at first disconcerted with the noises but especially the low amount of water the Whirlpool uses. Never mind the different noises, we wondered how our clothes could possibly be cleaned with a level of water that never rose above the top of the clothes! Let me mention here that we are very happy with the glass top, which permits us to see the washer in action. Without the glass top, I would be constantly stopping, looking, and restarting, without seeing what is actually transpiring.

Through the glass top we could see that the clothes are moved rigorously through the solution of water and detergent; so the manufacturer's statement that detergent is efficiently delivered makes sense.

We rarely use a dryer unless it rains unceasingly for days and days; we hang out clothes to dry on a clothesline. After three months with our new washing machine I state unequivocally that whether dried on the clothesline or in the dryer, our clothes are at least as clean and fresh as before, and to my mind, better.

I have wondered why reviews are all over the map: some claim the product is the best ever and others the worst ever. Sometimes complaints are handled well, sometimes not. Those that are not handled well lead to justifiably bad reviews.

So how does one consider the bad reviews that are complaints not about a defective product, but rather about the product itself?

I think -- and this is just my personal opinion -- that most complaints arise from not understanding how this very different machine works. If I look at the water level, for instance, and think this can never ever get my clothes clean, well then it may be that no matter how clean my clothes actually are I won't believe they are clean.

As for the rest (I think a minor remainder), I have no explanation or speculative explanation. I would say, 'Give it a real chance. If that doesn't do it for you, seek recourse: get a replacement, another model, or go back'. I would rather not have anyone go back, because the water savings are significant.

I have to say I am very disappointed with my new washer. It doesn't clean well and I have to run loads 2 and 3 times to get them clean. I love the Whirlpool dryer and have never had any complaints about a Whirlpool washer until now. I have to literally set ever load on the HIGHEST and LONGEST setting and hope they are semi clean when finished.

My husband works construction and I have pets so I am washing blankets, sheets, sofa covers and dirty construction clothes and this washer really - really does NOT clean them well. I hope it dies soon so I can justify buying a new one. :(

        Used this washer for 3 years, lightly soiled garments, probably 3x a week total for 2 adults. Basic underwear, dress shirts, sheets, towels, regular clothing. Today, the service call said the bearings/transmission were shot and the entire mechanism has to be replaced.

                          The Whirlpool Cabrio, Model WTW5600XW worked fine for several months, then started giving a lot of "out of balance" errors. Adjusting the loads would help sometimes, but not always. The machine was leveled and balanced, on a concrete floor, so there were no excuses. Had the shift actuator fail twice, the machine got to be very noisy in the low and high spin modes, and finally the gear box and related seals and bearings wore so badly that the water came gushing out of the bottom of it. It was a decent washer in the beginning, but the durability just isn't there after a few years go by. Hope everyone else has batter luck with theirs than I had with mine Excuse me now, as I have to throw this thing into the dumpster.

                                I bought this about 4 and half years in 2010. The light indicator for cold water vanished after one year of use. Different kinds of noises are getting louder and louder. The washer stops at the cycles of rinse and spin. Now, I have to operate it manually. This is a piece of junk comparing to the "Kenmore" I had, which last almost 12 years.
