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!!!!!!

        This washer is just over 1 yr old. The manufacturers warranty has just expired. I called for a service repair. The cost to repair the washer exceeded the original cost of the washer. It's now good for scrap metal only. I'll never buy whirlpool again.

                          It tears all of my t-shirts only around the collar. It doesn't happen to any other clothes, only t-shirts and just the collar. It cleans very well, takes longer however due to HE. But I'm getting rid of it. It must be too harsh on thin t-shirts. I hate it.

                                I have had this machine for 2 years. The high spin is damaging my clothes and sheets and there is no way to use the gentler spin with a regular wash, or add more water. To get clothes even close to clean I have started doing every wash with an extra rinse, and using the Gentle wash whenever I can. NOT an energy saver when you factor in that extra rinse and replacing clothes and linens years too early.
