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 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 WTW4950XW 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!!!

Easy To Use

By

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

Great load capacity!! Handles heavy loads with ease!! The only minus is the "Locked" lid while in use. Three seconds is not long enough if the load needs to be shifted.

Disgusted

By 

from Baton Rouge, LA

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

The life of this machine was only 4 years. Absolutely unacceptable. After reading all the other reviews - that detail the same exact problem with our washer - I can't believe Whirlpool is still selling this piece of junk under a different item number. Buyer be very aware. We will be avoiding Whirlpool at all costs. Off to replace our 4 year old washing machine.

Don't wast your money to fix

By 

from Nebraska

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

I have had this washer for four years and it has been nothing but problems. I've had it fixed 3 times and each time was for the same reason... the spin cycle would not work. After a load of clothes you would have to go back and put the clothes thru just the spin cycle anywhere from 2-4 times each load. What a waste of electricity and time! Save your time and money... once it quits invest in a new washer. Wish I would have sooner but you expect your washer to last at least 6-7 years.

Washer sucks

We purchased this machine that came highly recommended by the sales person. We've owned for 3 1/2 years and we just found out the bearings are gone and the repairs will cost several hundred dollars.

very disappointed

By 

from Kingston, Ontario

Comments about Whirlpool WTW4950XW White Top Loading Washer:

Never liked the super suction caused by the spin cycle because it left the clothes almost dry and so wrinkled I had no choice but to use the dryer to help smooth them out - not very energy efficient! Now, the drain and spin cycle does not kick in during any cycle. I have to start a drain and spin cycle manually at the end of each wash and then the clothes are still very wet. Not at all happy with this machine and will not buy Whirlpool again or recommend it.
