I purchased this washer to be able to handle my over-sized king sized comforters. It does a beautiful job on them. Because it is so big inside I can load it up when I am doing regular wash also. It saves on water and electric for me. The different settings are perfect for the laundry that I do. Ex: towels, sheets, bulky, normal etc. I love the deep clean feature also because it gets the smell out of things! You can not go wrong with this one. Make sure to read the directions on how to load it. Many people do not load it right and say that it doesn't work. It's not the washer's fault it is OE...operator error. I love my new washer and you will too!

10 Reasons NOT to buy this washing machine: 1. You cannot soak clothes in hot water. When I need to soak clothes, it is because a child had an accident during the night or there is a stain â€" both of these options MUST have hot water to soak the clothes in, but this washer will not allow you to do that. 2. The water it does allow your clothes to soak in (only cold or warm), is not actually soaking your clothes in a tub of water. It gets the clothes partially wet and they sit there damp, not wet. What good this actually does for cleaning clothes, I have yet to figure out. 3. Your clothes will never be clean unless you choose the â€œHeavyâ€� option. I have no idea why it has other options, they are useless. 4. The heavy option takes 90 minutes to wash a load of clothes, no matter how big or small the load is. 90 minutes? I find this absolutely ridiculous. 5. We were told by the salesman that the washer could determine the size of the load and would adjust itself accordingly. Yep, it sure does â€" 90 minutes for extra small or extra large load â€" it adjusts itself by doing nothing. 6. Many times after washing a load of clothes, they do not smell good at all. Therefore, the load has to be washed again. Yep 90 + 90 means that load of clothes just took you 3 hours to wash! 7. You have to wash the machine, empty, too! You have to buy special cleaning supplies for this as well. They are not cheap either. This also takes 90 minutes. 8. A regular machine like the old ones that you can turn the water on to fill up the tub gets your clothes MUCH cleaner â€" those machines are cheaper, too! 9. I tried for months to find something good with this machine â€" I can find nothing! 10. It is MUCH more expensive than the regular washers. You will be MUCH better off to get the cheaper model

Great job spin drying
from Roblin, MB, Canada
Comments about Whirlpool Chrome Shadow Top Load Washer:
This large capacity washing machine cleans better, uses less water, and less electricity than any machine I have ever owned. Even my husbands farm clothing covered in dirt and manure has come out clean. (I use 20 ml of regular sunlight ultra triple clean laundry detergent and 5 ml of arm and hammer super clean washing soda) Also the spin cycle leaves the clothes almost dry so that I have halved the time the clothes need to be in the dryer. Love the machine and how clean the clothes are.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice looking,a little pricey. If I was shorter I wouldn't be able to reach the clothes inside after washed.
It's by far the best washing machine I've ever owned. I have even recommended it to several friends.
I don't recommend,, this pair it dose not clean well and after having it for less than 6 months and had to have it repaired!! i owned a traditional whirlpool washer for 13 year never had any problem just wanted to upgrade not a good move!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Quiet and Large!
By Deborah from Sarasota

I needed to replace my 13 yr old gas dryer for some time. After careful researching I decided to buy the Platinum 4.6 series. Good choice! Dries very well and is quiet doing it.
Who could ask for anything more!
