Worst machine ever!!!
By Ruined Clothes Owner

Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:
This machine is the worst purchase I have ever made. Bottom line the reviews regarding the machine severly wrinkling and tearing clothes are true. I myself did not believe it until we had torn 2 shirts, matress pad, and had towels with torn loops all within the first 3 weeks. This machine also stretches clothes to the point elastic in many items like my matress pad and running shorts were no more. Got lucky and after a bit of a battle was able to return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Found many internet blogs speaking of the washer and how it tears clothes. I started this search once I realized something was wrong. I usually wash my clothes in Delicate to extend their life, but with whites I would use the machines preset wash cycle, this is where I realized what was happening. I think that Whirlpool in general is having a lot of issues. The washer uses very little water but it also agitates to the point where the clothes twist in the machine, and possibly its whats causing the tearing. Clothes that don't rip are very wrinkled. I think I would rather have a front loader and deal with its shortcomings than with these new top load washers, hopefully a new design for top loaders will come out to resolve this problem.
What a diference

Always had agitator machines so we were skeptical and curious on cleaning and use of less water. Works great. Takes less drying time since the washer spins out more water. Saving money on electricity for dryer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Doing just fine
No doubt if you don't READ the instructions you may be disappointed. But if you take the time to read everything and DO what it says the product performs just fine. It does take some getting used to, but so far the clothes come out clean and we have not experienced any of the blown out of porportion problems some describe. We are convinced that most of the problems described are a result of people not reading the directions.Noice level could be better, but it is about the same as our old washer. Wish this model had the see through top so you could see what is actually going on inside. Our hunch that the 3.6 size wash tub would be plenty big enough was correct and so far the absence of the large impeller blades in the middle of the tub does not seem to be a problem.Using the HE detergents is ok, but we think some HE formulations may not be quite as good for some stains as the regular style formulas. We have kept our old ERA liquid to use for some "spot" treatments of some stains as it seems to improve some spot removal...esp blood. The HE technology is a different way of washing than what we were used to. But again, if you take the time to understand the instructions before just doing the wash as you always have you will be much more satisfied. Trust the instructions and not your instincts for most everything with these HE products. We won't be able to tell how much energy and water is saved for a while, but it does seem to use less water. The esptimated wash times the machine calculates is very conservative and it almost always washes much quicker than the intitial time the machine estimates...which is about as fast as out as our old traditional machine.
I would say all VERY GOOD!

So far so good. We have had the washer about a month now. It is great washing machine. We have had the matching drier for a year now. We expect the same from the washer.
