I was skeptical after reading some luke warm reviews but I couldn't be happier with my new washer.
I love all the settings, water savings, and it can manage huge loads with no problems. It is very quiet and I love the look!

It is with great sadness that I write this review. We purchased this washer and in less than 3 months, the model we purchased, simply stopped working. To make matters worse, it has been over a month and 3 service calls, and I still do not have a working machine or a replacement, until mine is fixed. The customer service team is very nice, but there is no option for this situation but to wait. Anybody who does laundry knows how frustrating it is to have a pile up of laundry and very little time to get to a laundry mat. I am very disappointed, given our patience and waiting over a month, that Whirlpool is not able to help, in the interim, until the current washer is fixed. There should be more understanding and empathy, and options for these situations.

                    This is my second HE washer. Previous one drove me crazy. Out of balance all the time. I love this Whirlpool. Less water, never out of balance and the steam clean is removing stains. I hope this relationship continues because I think it is best modern technology

                                My husband got me this washer and I wish he didn't! It does not clean the clothes, without an agitator I'm not sure how it would. It's loud. When you wash sheets or tablecloths it covers the top and doesn't let other clothes spin.

                                      I purchased the set about 5 months ago. I have problems with all of our black clothes coming out with white streaks on them. I have tried less detergent, thinking maybe that was the issue, but that didn't solve the problem. Then I tried less fabric softener and an extra rinse, but still have streaks. It is very frustrating having to re wash clothing. Any ideas? I'm willing to try anything.

                                      Three year old front loader fried the main circuit board. Because my wife HATED the machine, we decided to buy another washing machine instead of having the old one repaired. Since we have had nothing but bad experiences with the previous two front loaders we owned (not Whirlpools) we opted to go back to the top load. The wife is thrilled! The clothes are finally getting cleaned again and smell like it too. Caution, this washers emanates sounds which are unlike any other washing machine we have owned. Sounds different but works like a dream.

                                            It's a little bigger than I expected, but, hey, I'm doing less loads! Also, fits the bigger items: comforters, pillow, etc.
                                            Clothes come out nice and clean.
                                            Bought it with the dryer--sharp looking!

                                                  Purchased early July-washer has huge capacity, large enough for king size bedspreads and quilts. However, washer makes a loud grinding noise during cycle.
                                                  Also, a short person (I am 5'7") will not be able to reach the bottom of the tub to unload clothes without a stool.
