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!!!!!!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY !!!!!

By 

from Plainfield ,Illinois

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

If I could rate less than 1 star I would . Worse washer I ever purchased , you have to rinse the dark cloths 2 sometimes 3 times to get the little bit of soap out . It leaves white soap marks all over and that's with any soaps ( I tried probably every one on the market ) ! So you're not saving on water .electricity ,time and/or patience .I wish I never listened to the sale rep. talk me into it. I will be definitely buying a new washer as soon as I can save up for one.

Worst Washer Ever!

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

This washer came with the house we moved into. I was excited to have this newer, new technology, non-agitator style washing machine. Now my excitement has turned to frustration. The only way to get the all the clothes wet is to use the "bulky items" setting, and still the clothes come out dirty.

I have monitored the wash cycle very closely and confirmed that the clothes do not change position during the wash cycle. The clothes that started on the bottom remained on the bottom. The clothes that started on the top remained on the top. The clothes that started in the middle remained in the middle

Using this washer is the equivalent of throwing your clothes in a bucket, filling the bucket with soapy water, then draining the bucket.

This washer simply does not wash clothes - worthless!

Don't buy one

By 

from Charlotte, MI

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

I absolutely hate this washer. I have had it a couple of years. I like the fact that my water bill went down but my clothes are not as clean. Also, we seem to have a problem with it getting stuck at the spin cycle now. I have to re-spin the clothes all the time. I also hate the fact that it takes over an hour to wash one load. I am very saddened with this machine. We have decided to replace it with another regular washer and not an HE. We very often go to the laundromat just so we can get the clothes done quicker than an entire day.

Horrible machine

By 

from PA

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

We bought this wash about 3 years ago and have nothing but problems since we had it. First there was a belt that came off and burned out the motor. Then the agitator (very small) had the plastic wear down against the metal motor. It has been service 4 times since we had it. In addition, the clothes don't seem to get as clean as with a normal washer that has a regular full size agitator. I would NOT recommend this item.

Not what they make it sound . . .

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

We have had this machine for almost two years. From the get go, it doesn't always get the clothes wet, so you know they don't come clean. A blanket or a jacket or even a pair of pants might come out with about 40% still dry. When it happens, I rewash them. It has never been overloaded and I have tried all cycles thinking the superwash will do it. You can't guarantee a different setting will work every time.

I only had mine for three days and during a storm our electricity went out. After it came back on my washer wouldn't work. Cost $180 for the repair. Not happy!

Worst one ever

By 

from Fort Mill S. Carolina

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:

This is the a WORST washer we ever owned. Clothes come out (after running through a complete cycle) with dry places on them. The clothes simply don't come clean. We recently got a new puppy and she had an accident on her blanket. I removed as much of the poo as possible pre-washing and I was shocked when it came out of the washer poo spot and all.
It's about 4 years old and I have just bought its replacement. So happy to be rid of this piece of junk! Nice to finally have clean clothes!
Wake up whirlpool! This technology is poor. My recent purchase is not a Whirlpool!!!
