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!!!!!!

Spins Out of Balance!!!

By Anonymous

from Cincinnati, OH, United States

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

Hasn't operated properly since new. Machine is now only 3 1/2 years old and is making squealing motor noises; probably about to quit altogether.

Have used washer for 2 months

By Dozer

from Ontario Canada

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

We are very happy with the washer, Important to read the book and us the proper settings, for the load you have in the washer. Once you learn that, had not had any problems. Again the book explains the strange noises, that you do adjust to. \ Over all we are pleased with our choice

Short-lived

By DisappointedShopper1

from Lancaster, CA

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

This machine replaced my 20+ year-old Roper/Whirlpool machine. I was excited to get a high-efficiency, water-saving, quiet machine. But almost exactly 3 years later, I am now replacing this machine, due to a worn-out bearing! Repairman said the small motor on these machines just isn't strong enough to power large-capacity loads. He says people put too much into the super-large capacity, agitator-less drum, because the manufacturer tells you to, but the small motor and bearing cannot support that kind of weight. My machine began sounding like a jet taking off when it was on the spin cycle. Cost for a new bearing is almost as much as replacing the machine. If I loved the machine, I'd pay to repair it. However, since the machine was new, in almost every load, I've noticed some clothing coming out with completely dry areas. Wash cycles take much longer than in my previous machine, yet the clothes don't even get completely wet! The machine does do an amazing job of spinning out water; but clothes come out very wrinkled as a result. I also did like the automatic load size sensor. But it's a pain to have to hold the lid-lock button 3-seconds to unlock the lid to throw in another garment. So, all-in-all, I'm not impressed with "high-efficiency, water-saving, no-agitator" machines. The new machine I've just purchased has an agitator, and is not energy-efficient nor water-saving. I'm looking forward to my clothes getting wet again, swishing around in the water, and coming out clean 30 minutes later! I hope that washer-manufacturers hear how unhappy so many consumers are with the new machines, and go back to providing machines that actually do what a washing machine is supposed to do-get clothes clean!

Fantastic

By chillatiger

from Valentine, NE

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

This is everything I'd wanted and then some! I love every feature, specifically no agitator. I can fit in large blankets, loads of towels, plus my pants (I'm tall) and bras don't get hooked up on the agitator. In the past they would get caught up and take the fabric softener cap off with them. Aggravating. The clothes come out soft, CLEAN, and I'm using less water and energy - BONUS. There is one exception to this washer, there is no cycle done buzzer. I miss that a lot!!!! I would have given it five stars if it had that feature. And shame on me for not looking for it!!!

A Piece of Junk!

By WesternCarol

from Prescott, AZ

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

Two and a half years after purchasing it, we replaced the Whirlpool washer with an "old-fashioned" agitator washer. The Whirlpool was not only leaking oil, but the computer board was so out of whack that it was cheaper to replace the washer than to repair it! We only registered it to find out if it had been recalled.

By juschillin2

from Westminster, MD, United States

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

I bought this washer one year ago. Outside od a few minor adjustments...leveling etc. This has been a very nice upgrade from our previous traditional washers. We opted for the style without a center aggitatot.

Water Too Low -- doesn't clean well, can't balance

By 4spocks

from Undisclosed

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

I've been using this washer for 18 months. Without the agitator, the load gets off-balance very often. The machine doesn't balance well, knocking around violently until I interrupt the cycle or it gives up on itself and aborts the cycle. Weekly occurrence with towels or bedding. I regularly have to pull soaking wet stuff out and reorganize, wring, etc. Sheets and blankets will roll under into a donut shape with some fabric taught across the top, filling just the bottom third or so of the barrel. This taught fabric has a dry, unclean circle the size of a basketball in the middle at the end of the cycle. There is no fabric softener dispenser and the Downy Ball they recommend doesn't mix well enough and leaves blue spots on our clothing about 25% of the time. I hate this machine.

Very Satisfied

By LaundryBoy

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

Purchased my washer a couple of months ago and we are very satisfied with the performance. It took a little getting use to because it operates differently from an regular agitator. I wish this model came with a fabric softener compartment, you have to use the downy ball to use fabric softener.
