I bought this washer about a month ago. I did go to the site and read the reviews. It does make some noises but it is a new machine and machines change with the times. This has sensors to tell it what to do. How much water to use, and to use special detergent. I hardly have to use any. It uses less energy to run, less water, less detergent, I am saving all around. No large agitator in the tub, it spins the clothes practically dry. Less drying time in my dryer. I did not pick up the extened warranty. After a week I went back and bought the warranty, Since it has sensors I wanted to be safe on the warranty. You have up to 30 days from purchase to pick up the waranty.

After our reliable Maytag broke, we felt confident that Whirlpool would be the right choice for our new washing machine. We were impressed with the "no agitator" feature - it seemed we were keeping up with progress. Many of my washed items do not go in a dryer and are hung up to dry. This is impossible now. All clothes are heavily entwined and extremely wrinkled. Having done laundry for 50 years (I am 75), I have no need for instructions as how to do wash. However, I followed all guidelines that could supposedly eliminate the heavy wrinkling result. Pack clothes loosely, use warm water, use gentle setting, put a towel in with the clothes, etc. To no avail! I actually have to entwine clothing from twisted pajama pants. So sorry I bought this product. Wish I had my machine with agitator back. I now dread doing laundry. As far as energy savings - what energy savings (since I now have to iron most of my clothes)?

Washer has exceeded our expectations. With three kids under 7 years old, we are constantly running the washing machine. This product has handled all our needs from bedding to pillows to shoes (not sure this is advisable, but the shoes are clean).

Whirlpool® 3.8 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with 5 Adaptive Wash Actions
By Wild In Utah
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
This washer is certainly different. It does the job fine. You need to purchase special detergent, however, but many brands available in stores today are suitable. Sometimes it seems to take a long time to run through the cycles. Also, sometimes darks get lint concentrated on them and I need to rewash them. I don't like how I have to add the detergent first and I'm required to use a ball for the fabric softener. This takes extra time.
Gets clothes clean
from Virginia, United States
I have had this washer for two months and have been pleased with it. It seems to do well with getting clothes clean and I like that it is mostly not computerized. It has enough options to choose from and they're simple to use.
A new breed of washer
from Kansas City, KS, United States
I bought this washer about a month ago. This is a high efficiency washer and very sensitive to how it is sitting, unlike my old washer. If this washer is not sitting exactly level, the tub will bang around when it changes cycles. Once I figured this out, it works great. It uses very little water and little soap is needed. I have been happy with it to this point.
Lots of features

Had this washer almost 2 months. Not happy with it. Feel it is hard on our clothes, especially the ones with spandex or similar fabrics.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Efficient unit except
from Central MA
I am please with my purchase. It has lived up to all expectation as stated. The one and only oversight (on my side for not noticing) and slight disappointment was that there isn't any softener dispenser. There are work around like the ball or beads but really miss just adding softener. Still overall am very pleased with this unit for a reasonable price.
from Lorton, VA, United States
I purchased this product after every GE appliance in my new home failed after 3-4 years. I purchased Whirlpool products before and have never had a problem after several years. I've had the whirlpool washer for approximately 3 months with no issues. It makes a different sound than the legacy washers. It washes the clothes clean at any size and cycle. Only catch, I wish the design engineer would have allowed the user to open the lid after the initial water cycle starts to allow for additional clothes if you forgot to put in a few items.

design a different machine
from Gloucester, VA
From day one, I have wondered why anyone would design and manufacture such a ridiculous machine. In spite of all of the "directions booklet hype," it doesn't make sense for a washing machine to spend time clicking three times to be sure the top is latched; then another few minutes sitting, making weird noises; then finally loudly spurting water which doesn't really do much washing, as a normal machine would. There's also the big draw-back of not being able to open the top, once the machine is started (without having to start the whole process from the beginning); thus you can't add an item forgotten or check on how much lather is being produced. It doesn't seem possible to put an item in just to spin dry, either, without going through the whole cycle. It's a nuisance, too, having to "leave the center clear," and to use a "certain type" of detergent. Please start making a sensible machine that gets clothes clean in much less time.
