This washer replaced a Kenmore agitator unit that wouldn't spin anymore. It's simple to use and the washing cycle didn't seem any longer than before. It was less noisy than previous unit, but not completely silent. All the clothes ranging from blankets, jeans, delicates, etc., that were thrown at came out clean. It does have a locking switch to keep the door from opening up during a cycle, but it can be overridden. However, water filling does stop. Overall, it's a good non-HE unit that does what you tell it to do.

I've always had Whirlpool and this is the first one I have not liked. Hopefully it won't last as long as my others did. You can't have a completely hot wash or completely cold. It automatically adds a little cool water to hot washes and a little warm to cold washes. The booklet says it does this so that you get a more economical and cleaner wash. I prefer to decide on my own what type of wash I want. My husband gets his clothes pretty greasy at work. I used to use Spray and Wash, then hot wash and stains were gone. With this washer you actually have to scrub the stains before washing to make sure they come out. Probably because I'm not really getting hot water in the wash. I've tested it with my hands and it is just warm. I also hate the lid lock. If you need to open it during the wash, you have to stand there and wait for the lid to unlock. My other whirlpool would automatically stop spinning if I opened the lid. Don't know why they had to change that and go to a locking lid. And if you need to open it during the time it is sensing, the sensing starts all over again when you close the lid. The fabric softener dispenser ends up leaving a little softener on the agitator when it is done spinning so if your clothes hit it when taking them out, they get a bit of softener stain. I prefer adding softener during the rinse cycle because of this, so I stand there til I can open the lid which takes a bit of time because of the lid lock. It's a bit of a time waster. It doesn't sound like it is agitating super good, but I can't check because the lid lock keeps me from looking. I would not recommend this washer.

Washes my clothes
from NH, United States
We bought this washer with a dryer at Lowe's. After about two months it stopped working and would get stuck on wash and wouldn't fill. Whirlpool sent a repair man a couple days later and of course it worked for them. He cleared the filter and it's worked fine since. They cover it for a year so we're not too worried.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just bought this and the machine is great. The only thing is I wish it was bigger to do comforters.

We are very happy with our Whirlpool purchase

This is the first Whirlpool appliance that we have owned. In the future, when we look for an appliance, we will start by looking at Whirlpool first
from St Paul, MN, United States
Our old washer broke down, and we needed a replacement! I just needed a basic washer without all kinds of extra bells and whistles. I am so glad the salesman showed me this Whirlpool! It was exactly what I was looking for with a few new basics!
Great features for the price
We bought this 2 months ago and are very happy with it so far, especially for the price
Did not meet my expectations
from Almira, WA, United States
The washer did not seem to work correctly from the time I first used it. I thought maybe it was different than what I was used to so tried to get used to it. After 40 days it was just getting worse. The repairman came out and said the circuit board was defective. I decided to return the washer to the furniture store and get something different. The new one just arrived today.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Everything I expected in a washer.

I bought my new Whirlpool washer several months ago and am very pleased with its performance. Cleans my laundry to my expectations. Will definitely purchase more Whirlpool appliances.
