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.

Top Load Whirlpool

By 

from Keizer OR

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

I bought this a few months ago, it was in used but good condition. It is quiet compared to others. But I am going to be looking for a different machine because it has torn a towel and a skirt, and pilled shirts.

Awful machine

By 

from Waco, TX

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

I would give this washer a minus star if possible. You can't open the lid after it starts. It takes 8 minutes to fill and takes an hour for a load to wash from start to finish. If it doesn't start after pushing "start" button, you have to unplug it for 15 min. so it can clear it's brain. I don't have the time. After calling customer service to find out how long each wash cycle was, I was told the machine decides how dirty my clothes are and how long they need to wash. Really??? It know how dirty my clothes are???? I know the world of machines being "smarter" than humans but I've been doing laundry for many years and I know how to wash. I don't need a washer to tell me how. I hate, did you understand, I HATE this washer.

hate it!

By 

from Wernersville, PA

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

Purchased this 5 years ago and hated it since the day I used it!!! I hate the lid lock, and you cannot change anything once it starts. It's tangled and ruined long sleeved shirts, tangled them around the agitator, put holes in shirts, ruined curtains. Now I'm having trouble with it not spinning properly, and I can't even pay someone to come and look at it! I will not spend $100 to have someone come and diagnose the problem because I hate it so much. Please don't waste your money on it, plus ruining clothes!

Lasted Only Three Years

By 

from Texas

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

After three years, the balance started acting up. When my husband opened it up to check it out, he found parts wearing out (cheaply made) and rust from the bleach dispenser (which is used perhaps once a month.) It's not worth buying parts to repair and it's far from the quality of mechanical items in mom's Whirlpool. It was built to not last.

avoid this machine

By 

from Lockport NY

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

After approx 2.7 years this machine is broke-needs a new gear. This is after 2.7 yrs of easy life. We are a two person household and did not place any heavy demands on this machine. The service tech said he has seen this problem on this model mutiple times. Got to go...shopping for a new washer!!

Ours just died on xmas eve...

By 

from Cincinnati,Ohio

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

I gave this washer machine 4 stars since it handled a heavy load for 5 years of use.My wife and her sister who we moved in with their kids used the machine around every other day.It saw heavy usage but now the transmission went out and will run around 456 dollars to fix. Much cheaper to buy a new one.

Broke after 2 Years of use

By

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

This washer's main computer board broke after 2 years of usage. Washer just kept restarting itself over and over again. Warranty is only good for 1 year. Wish they'd stand behind their products more. They sure don't make things like they used to. Very disappointed.
