    HOTTEST WATER YOU WANT! RINSE FILLS TO THE TOP!

    First, it took some getting used to the newer features that older washers did not have such as the locking lid and pause button. To get the best results read the Use and Care guide for which cycles use a full rinse vs spray rinse and how to avoid delaying the "sensing" process. Second, I wash bedding in 140 degree hot water as recommended by allergy doctors for killing dust mites. I achieve this temperature by turning off the cold water valve/hose and letting in only hot water. 1. I like the fact I can get the hottest water I want if I turn off my cold water valve/hose. My water heater is set to deliver 156 degrees and I get the water straight out of my water heater without any interference. Some of the newer machines on the market have that "perfect temp" feature which blocks your water hose to keep you from making the water as hot as you want, and this machine DOES NOT DO THAT, thank goodness! 2. Once you select the wash cycle, let the water fill up a little before adding detergent. I like that the water fills all the way up and covers the clothes. I do not like HE washers that use a 'tablespoon' of water to wash or rinse a load. This one is like an old fashioned washer that fills up. 3. You unlocked the lid by touching the pause button at any point in the cycle. I noticed if you hit the pause button while it's in "sensing" mode, it takes longer for the lid to unlock. 4. On a "regular" wash cycle the rinse water fills up completely to the top and your clothes are fully submerged. However, some cycles use a "spray rinse" but I have found that if spray is not enough, I can run it through the "rinse and spin" cycle that fully submerges my clothes under water. Hard to find that in any washing machine today. 5. It has a drain and rinse feature that's handy when I need to interrupt a load and want to get moving. I also use this when doing towels because it spins them drier than other cycles. 6. It has a 2 rinse cycle option that is critical for one with sensitive skin and cannot tolerate any soap residues in clothing. And if you're really extra sensitive, you can always run it through a 3rd rinse using the "rinse and spin" cycle only. 7. It takes a few minutes longer to wash a "heavy" load than my old washer. I think that is due to new features that sense and test if a load is balanced before it begins to spin. Also, if you open the lid during the "sensing phase" aka when it's "thinking" then it starts the sensing process over and that adds more time. It seems to take a few seconds to make the transition from one step to another due to the electronic sensing features processing what to do next. 8. It makes an assortment of noises especially during the spin part. That's all part of the new "sensing" technology that is adjusting the balance by spinning a touch first, stopping and then spinning again after adjusting for balance. 9. I have washed a Lands' End king size Polartec 200 blanket and it fit just fine and washed well. I washed 4 pairs of 40" x 36" thick wrangler jeans and 6 big thick towels and it was fine. 10. It does not tear, twist or rip clothes like my old GE washer. I am so happy to open the lid and find my clothes in one piece. And they are clean, too! No more ripped up, twisted apron strings. yea! WHAT I DON'T LIKE 1. It does not have a way to soak your clothes longer than 10 minutes. When the lid is left open, it drains after 10 minutes.If you close the lid the cycle begins. There is no way to select a way to fill it up and stop it without it draining all the water out. I hate that I can't soak anything overnight. What's with that? [Please have your designers speak to a woman over 50 with kids when designing a machine.] 2. If you select a "small" load size and the cycle starts, you will not be able to change it without canceling the cycle and all the water draining out of the machine. So if you start a cycle, be sure you have all the clothes you wish to put in the machine as you cannot just stop the machine, turn the dial to "large" and expect the water to continue where it left off to fill up to a "large" level like the older style washing machines. Nope, it will drain the whole thing out wasting water, soap, and time by having to refill and start over. It's pretty evident the older generation of engineers from old school common sense have retired as this feature is evidence of the "American Junior Engineer Syndrome" present in technology today. ugh! Seriously guys? You have to reinvent the wheel? If it ain't broke don't fix it. Overall, finding a washer that is similar to the old style washing machine is next to impossible. However, with some adaptation this washer will deliver water as hot as your water heater setting (by shutting off cold water valve/hose) and has an option to have a full tub rinse as in your clothes are fully submerged under water. Pros Durable, full tub rinse on 'regular' cycle, hottest water with adaptation, 2 rinse cycles, cleans well Cons can't soak clothes overnight in machine, locking lid and pause button = annoying, can't add clothes and select a different water level after cycle starts. Takes longer to fill than my old machine no matter what temperature I select.

    The good part. I'm thankful I did not get the super expensive "Gee Whiz" version as it has even more problems and is harder to use. That said, the problem here is that the machine will drain itself at the slightest provocation. If you dare to open top while filling to put in your soap or clothes the machine may drain. If top is open while filling adding laundry can confuse it (machine supposedly knows weight and volume of load) and drains. If when washing you hit pause-unlock and lift lid you have between zero seconds and four minutes to close lid and press resume--or it will drain. No consistency- best not to consider adding anything once the cycle starts. This wastes lots of water and you have to re-add your soap and bleach. Because this machine (is supposed to) use less water, you will need to select "two rinses" to get the soap out. The fact there is such a setting means manufacturer is aware of this. Of course this problem and the ridiculous locking system are due to federal (safety?) laws.. The self drain feature wastes water and I cannot figure any safety benefit .....drowning prevention? Cleaning. Something that wasn't necessary on old school washers. This uses hot water and no load. Wasteful.

        Stopped working twice aleady

        By britt4444

        from SLC, UT

        Comments about Whirlpool White Top Load Washer:

        The washer has stopped working twice already and we've had it less than a month. Not sure what the problem is. Once it got stuck between cycles and we had to unplug it to get it to reset. The other time it filled up and then drained all the water without ever going to the wash cycle, had to reset the machine to get it to start over. When it is working it works great but we are worried that it is having problems already. Shouldn't have these types of problems with a brand new product. We are goign to have to keep an eye on it and see what happens

            So far I am really happy with this washing machine. It is easy to use and does a good job getting the clothes clean and removing stains. The only feature I would change is the lid locks after the washing cycle starts and that can be inconvenient.

              Easy to use settings/dial features. Wanted a washer with an agitator and this washer has worked well. Multiple options for water temperature and rinse cycles allow for more specific washing needs. The lid lock feature is nice, however makes it difficult to access a load mid-cycle should you need to.

                      Its just my husband and myself and we didn't want an extravagant, expensive washer and dryer. We did alot of research before choosing this set. We have been thrilled with our choice. The sounds are definitely different from our old washer but not obnoxious or disruptive at all. We are pleased with our choice of this Whirlpool set!
