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!!!!!!

I absolutely hate this washer

        Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

        Hate is not a strong enough word. This washer does NOT clean clothing, bedding or towels adequately. I've had it for two years, ever since my conventional washer died. I would do anything to go back to that washer and find some way to fix it, and keep it forever. I can't afford to go buy a new washer, so I end up running loads twice, which doesn't end up saving much water.

              Washer worked fine until few months after warranty. Lower bearings needed replaced after only 4 years of normal use. Estimated $400.00 in repairs. Going to buy a new one....but it won't be a Whirlpool.

              Very upset !!!!!!

                    bought this machine about 2 years ago and it never worked well. Not enough water to wash clothes and no agitator sounds fancy but doesn't clean the clothes. Now...it doesn't work at all-can't complete cycles, leaves lid locked, after unplugging and replugging machine we can sometimes get it to start another cycle...but basically it is not possible now to wash a load of laundry. We are throwing this away and buying another machine this weekend. Washers used to last 20+ years...this one died after about 2...worthless machine

                          Purchased in April 2012. Bought the 2 yr ext warranty. The Washer would quit part way through and leave clothes soaking wet. Would have to restart several times just to finish a load. They replaced the pump. Now the warranty is expired by a few months and the washer is doing the same thing again!!! The new pump is 10 months old but I was told there is no warranty on the pump and there is nothing they will do and that there is no recall?!?! This washer needs a recall for this problem,

                                I am happy with the washer. Used it for one year without any problems. The only downside is that the top cover can collect dirt, some of which can fall into the washer when you open the cover. But I guess it is the problem with with all top load washers.

                                      I've only had this washing machine for a little over a year and it's stopped working 2 times. The washer is running 24/7. And the bad thing is that it's just mine and my husbands clothes I'm washing. It takes 2.5 hours to wash 1 load. Who has time for that? I'm taking it back to Home Depot and demanding a replacement or a refund!

                                            I purchased this washer about a year and a half ago after saving for what seemed like forever for it. As a single mom, I was so excited to not drag my kids to the laundry mat anymore every week. I selected it because it was supposed to be energy efficient. The washer constantly runs and I have to intervene. When it does finally stop, usually around an hour later, the cloths are sopping wet and then I have to run them through the spin cycle again and again. Now I'm saving for a new washer, again. I can assure you it won't be a whirlpool.

                                                  Bought this 2 years ago- loved it until recently, when it began stopping before the spin cycle completed- leaving clothes sopping wet. Have to run drain and spin cycle several times. Seems to be par for the course for this machine, as others seem to have the same problem. Too bad they make things cheaply these days- my old GE washer lasted about 20 yrs before the motor finally went.

                                                        I loved this at the start but now, it won't wash a load completely, It stops part way through a load and the sensor keeps saying it's off balance. No matter how I adjust it, it's still off balance. I checked and the machine is level so that's not the problem. I don't know if my load is clean and if I try to dry it, it takes hours. I'm not liking this one bit!

                                                              It has been a great washer for 3 years, but now has suddenly worn out on us. The wash cycle won't finish and we have to run the "Drain and Spin" cycle 2-3 times to finish it. Also, The auto-locking feature for the lid is frustrating and unnecessary.
