Despite all the negative reviews, I decided to go with my gut and buy this washer. My mother has this washer and I had to use it when mine broke and I liked how it worked. I got my washer installed at 10:30 am today and I have already washed 6 loads.

The washer is not loud, it cleans my clothes well and efficiently. For all the bad comments about the time it takes to wash 1 load, I don't find that the length of time to wash a load on light or even normal took that long, no longer than my other washer took.

As for the locking feature, big deal, when you want to open it, you push the button and it unlocks. Close the lid and press the button again and it begins again. I love the fact that it automatically balances my load before it begins to wash because it literally has ended my trips to the basement to balance my wet clothes when it spins.

I am satisified with the 4 water temperatures, 4 levels of clothes washing and the variety of cycles to choose from, including a heavey duty cycle. And since this is 2012, of course it is going to be energy efficient, therefore all the features of balancing, fill up and wash cycles are created this way to help save energy and water for you!

I don't agree with all these negative comments about this washer and the few that had specific issues must have been washer specific and they may have received a defected one. I am very happy that I bought this Whirlpool washer and I would recommend it!

I have to question that who ever designed and created this washer was a busy parent of multiple children. This is by far the worst and most inefficient washer machine. For one, I cannot stand the fact that you have to 'balance' your load EVERY time you do a load of laundry. Weather it's a large or small load, I have to wait forever and rearrange the load(while getting soap on my hands) multiple times before the washer actually decides to start and load. Also, I can understand that washers might need the safety feather of locking their lids, but you can't fill the washer up and add clothes as you go, before balancing. Therefore, when it comes time to balance the load, your hands are covered in soap and is just a mess. Plus you can't add clothes after you started the washer without waiting for a few minutes for it to unlock. I promise you, by the time I get done messing around with the load and the idiotic 'balance' system, I could of done a load of laundry. This is definitely the worst washer machine out there and would not recommend it to anyone or any clothes washing service.

        We absolutely love how this machine runs. Even on its most basic cycle our clothes are coming out super clean and nearly dry! The spin cycle is fantastic and very efficient, cutting down our drying time significantly.

              We have purchased in the last two years a dishwasher and a clothes washer. We are very happy with both products. They are quiet and get the clothes and the dishes clean. They seem to use less water than our old appliances.

                          I bought this a few weeks ago and am extremely happy with this machine! I didn't want a machine with front loading and 30 features. The dryer and washer machines in my house was 40 years old. The dryer broke so I replaced both.
                          This washer is quiet, efficient, and so easy to use. It has the right amount of dials for everything. Instruction are printed on inside as well for convenience. My only regret is that I could not get the matching dryer it didn't fit down my basement steps. Good Job whirlpool, This is a big deal for the price!

                                bought a new washer to replace our ~15 yr old whirlpool unit. We had actually originally picked out one of the new fancy front loaders, but then we discovered it woulldn't fit in our space. We went and replaced our old unit with essentially the "same" version just a bit newer and have been very pleased. Fit perfectly, installed easily and now there is a self balancing feature which is a nice plus!

                                      I bought this washer around 2 yrs ago and it is extremely noisy. It works good, but the noise is extremely irritating. It sounds like rusty gears are trying to turn...but this happens only when the washer is washing and rinsing. Very unhappy with that part.

                                            I bought this 13 months ago and have already had to have it fixed. I bought this particular one because it was mid-priced and it is Made in the USA. I really would've expected it to last longer before I had to have it fixed though. On the bright side, the repair was under warranty and it took less than 24 hours for it to be fixed. As far as performance (other than the repair) it takes a little longer to wash than my old washer, but seems to do a better job. It is in my basement, so we do not hear it running. If you want an average washer for a somewhat reasonable price, this will probably work for you. If you do tons of laundry, probably not for you.
