My new washer is quite a leap forward. The Maytag that this replaced was loud, and used a lot of water. This new machine is super quiet. You just put some High Efficiency soap in load it with clothes and close the lid. Press the start button and then the spaceship gets ready for take-off. With clicks and buzzes that follow it measures the weight of your clothes and selects the correct amount of water to clean the wash. This is very unique from what we were used to, and very happy with it, even the 12 year old is doing her own laundry. Excellent product at a fair price.

Over an hour to wash one load of permapress and twice as long to dry because of slow spin. Hate that lid locks down & can't see how much water there is. Supposed to add soap and softener before adding clothes and instructions say add water to fill-line of softener dispenser, but no water comes in until it senses and lid locks down so have to go to sink to get water. Have tried casual, normal, deep water wash & heavy duty. Seems to clean okay, but I liked being able to choose the amount of time to wash, type of load, etc. On heavy duty, waited 8 minutes for it to sense and fill up and start to wash. Wanted to see how much water was actually in machine so pushed button to unlock and it pumped all of the water out and had to start over. I will probably only use on NORMAL or Casual and allow twice as long to wash AND twice as long to dry. Worse machine I have had in 76 years. Think I could almost do laundry on old Maytag wringer and two wash tubs just as fast. At least I would know what it was actually doing!!! Hope I NEVER have to buy another one since I want agitator, top load, and this was supposedly the BEST CHOICE. It is like being asked if you want to be poked in your left eye or your right one -- either one isn't a good choice.

Very Horrible Washer
from Lake Mary, FL, United States
Comments about Whirlpool 3.6 Cu Ft White Top Loading Washer:
Bought in March, 2014. Machine is always off center - stops, reset red button, start over. After a business trip I wash 6 underpants, then 6 t-shirts, then 6 pairs of socks. Any additional laundry causes it to get off balance - then stops - start the process over again. Thank heaven I did not buy the dryer. Must start looking for a real washer. I would like to spend an hour with the engineers - I would really get on their case. Washer makes so much noise - sounds like a 747 going down the runway.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Went to buy a new washing machine and bought a whirlpool dryer also!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great top loader
from West End, NC, United States
I needed an agitator as I felt wool, senses load weight, uses less water.
Glad we chose this machine
from Rockland County, NY, United States
We are very pleased with this washer. The controls are easy to understand and give all the options you could possibly want. They are light to the touch but do not feel flimsy. The washer is very quiet in operation, even in the spin cycle. Our previous machine was also HE so we are used to (1) not being able to watch the tub fill with water and (2) having the clothes come out nearly dry. (The latter is a real plus in summer, when we dry our laundry on the line.) Most importantly, our laundry comes out super clean. We would recommend this washer to anyone.

Great features, easy to use
from Westfield, MA, United States
Bought this washer as it has a full agitator, and a shorter wash cycle time. A large design flaw, the top door rests against the control knobs. When compared to the other Whirlpool models I found the following. 1. The newly engineered short agitator has bad recommendations (from my friends and salespeople). 2. The longer (up to 2 hour) wash times are also a major drawback. 3. I was also told the shorter agitator does not clean the clothes as well.
Mostly love this new appliance
from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
I bought this in June and it's a mostly good decision. It seems to save water & energy. The only thing I really do not like is the locking lid that forces me to put the soap in before the water and I can not open the lid to add additional clothes once it has started.
Everything we needed in a washer
from Whitney, TX, United States
We bought this washer and matching dryer for a weekend lake house. We didn't expect to use it very frequently so were looking for basic features at a good price. We have been pleased so far. The washer has all the features we would need and works fine. Good value for the features included.
from Grafton WI
We have had it a couple months now and it is doing a very good job. It has been a long time since we bought a new washer and dryer and it took a little while to become accustomed to its different noises but it is quiet and gets the clothes clean and uses less water.
Not happy with this machine
from Brantford, ON, Canada
The machine leaves white residue on dark clothes even when using almost no detergent and following the machine cleaning schedule. Clothes have to be rewashed resulting in no water savings. The matching dryer works great and has lots of setting variations.
