This machine was a gift from my Dad after my last washer suffered an "injury" inflicted by me.
First off, I live in a single wide mobile home, I am not on city water but on a well (water conservation is a must!). My last washer shook my house like an earthquake and used way too much water.
I also wanted a front loading washer for my comforters and such but decided on trying a top loading, non-agitator one instead. This is the perfect solution!
My first suggestion upon using this machine is to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!! And switch to HE laundry detergent (that is a must have! I use the Tide Pods, 1 pod per load or two on bulky items)
This is not your "old style/school" washer!
My first load was 12 pairs of jeans (I have 2 boys). On my old washer I would have set the water level at medium or large. This washer provided the water at just above the clothes. I'd say it used 25% of the water. I was pleasantly surprised. I did it on the Regular cycle and it took exactly 45 minutes from beginning to end (closing of the lid to putting it in the dryer), no extra rinse or ecoboost option. I believe that it takes a few minutes for the washer to sense the load amount and fill the water accordingly. (Have patience people). As for the noise level, much quieter than my last washer. The installers from Lowe's balanced it, and tested the water hoses before leaving (however, they did mix up the hoses on the back of the machine and were happy to come out the next day to rectify their mistake). This washer doesn't shake my house on the spin cycle! (this is a nice bonus in my book!).
My next item to wash was a bulky item, a down alternative feather bed. In my old washer it barely fit due to the agitator and never really got fully clean. I had a stain on it for over a month, put it in this washer with two Tide pods and that stain is GONE!! Yes, on the bulky items setting it does take longer to wash, I believe because of the setting and it takes a bit more to wash a large item. This washer also cleaned my 88'X90' Queen size down alternative comforter as well (not too mention it fit inside of the machine!)
Overall, I'm very happy with my gift, happy that I can conserve water (the first day of using this machine I did 5 loads and never got low or ran out of water. I once did 6 Super loads on my old washer and ran out of water!), and happy that I can finally use the Energy saving cycle on my dryer (no I don't have the matching dryer) for it's intended use, to save on my electric bill!

Well, I have not had this washer one month and the repair man has been twice. The washer does NOT balance itself. It does NOT wash the powder or liquid out of your clothes. It does not spin completely every time, you have to set it again to drain/spin. I have ruined so many clothes because the liquid detergent stained the clothes and powder detergent is left in clumps on the clohes. The washer does not put enough water in the barrel to wash clothes properly and you cannot wash but a very small amount of clothes. DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!!!!!!

Easy To Use

By 

from Frostproof, FL

Verified Buyer

Great load capacity!! Handles heavy loads with ease!! The only minus is the "Locked" lid while in use. Three seconds is not long enough if the load needs to be shifted.

I was in dire need of a washing machine so I got this one. I simply love it. It works really well and is quiet and gets the clothes clean.

Disgusted

By 

from Baton Rouge, LA

The life of this machine was only 4 years. Absolutely unacceptable. After reading all the other reviews - that detail the same exact problem with our washer - I can't believe Whirlpool is still selling this piece of junk under a different item number. Buyer be very aware. We will be avoiding Whirlpool at all costs. Off to replace our 4 year old washing machine.

very disappointed

By 

from Kingston, Ontario

Never liked the super suction caused by the spin cycle because it left the clothes almost dry and so wrinkled I had no choice but to use the dryer to help smooth them out - not very energy efficient! Now, the drain and spin cycle does not kick in during any cycle. I have to start a drain and spin cycle manually at the end of each wash and then the clothes are still very wet. Not at all happy with this machine and will not buy Whirlpool again or recommend it.

Worse appliance purchase ever!

By 

from Broadway, VA

I have been dealing with this piece of poor machine for 3 years now, never again will I buy Whirlpool!! The locking lid, the dirty clothes after washing, sometimes already dry, because they never even had water on them in the wash cycle. This week I ordered the mixing valve cause my cold water (all rinses are cold water rinses) runs after the machine has stopped, its not shutting off! Meanwhile waiting for that part, my washer does not even seem to have any power to it now, I washed a load last night, was stuck on wash forever, had to unplug it, now it won't even start!!! What a waste of money!!!!!!!

No agitator No dice!

By 

from Republic MO

We bought this washer along with the matching dryer four years ago. The washer performed poorly, didn't clean the clothes very good, left detergent lines on clothes because of low water levels. We had to use the extra rinse every time. The only thing it did well was the spin. The dryer performed well but the top started rusting two years in. Looked like they painted over already rusty steel! Huge downer!

Good for 3 years, now done

By 

from Fort Wayne, IN

Repair man said it's an issue with the agitator. That would explain the grinding noise for 30 seconds before it died. Won't power on or do anything. Won't even drain, smells terrible. His opinion, and that of many others, is that it would probably be $300 or so to fix. Disappointed in Whirlpool. Going to switch to something else after being a loyal customer for quite some time.

Done after 3 years

By 

from Wichita, KS

Purchased summer 2012. In the past month it has been stopping during the spin cycle and won't spin. Repairman looked at it and said motor and bearings were done and it would cost the same as a new washer to fix! Probably won't buy Whirlpool again. Never felt like my clothes were super clean either.

Bearings shot after 3 years use - Wasted Money

By 

from South Carolina

This Whirlpool washer died after 3 years; bearings gone. Never washed clothes well anyway. Cost to repair would be $ 450. Will have to buy another Washer. What a shame we can't make products that last more than 3 years. This model has been discontinued anyway.
