Additional Features

TumbleFresh™ Option

The TumbleFresh™ option keeps clothes fresh and reduces wrinkles by tumbling clothes periodically after the cycle's end for up to 6 hours. Intermittent tumbling in the washer helps reduce the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Quiet Spin Technology

Reduces noise and vibration by minimizing movement of the wash drum during spin cycles making installation on an upper floor possible.

Cold Wash Cycle

This eco-efficient cold water cycle cleans as well as a warm water wash. An initial wash phase at the beginning of the cycle uses a high detergent concentration to remove tough stains including grass, blueberry juice, red wine. This cycle uses less energy because there is no need to heat the water or maintain the temperature during the cycle.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 202 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully paired with Duet dryer! I love this washer. It's easy to load and washes my clothes to perfection regardless of what size or soil level of the load. December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This washer is quiet, doesn't vibrate like others, and has all the features I need. As a paraplegic, fighting to get the clothes out of the washer is a thing of the past. This washer has all the features I need, and more. It doesn't vibrate like most other front load washers, never get's that sour smell, and gets my clothes cleaner than ever. Even my sweaters and gentle clothing are never out of shape when I pull them from the washer. One of the features I really like on this washer is the EcoBoost. The Tumble Fresh is a great feature when you know you won't be able to get your clothes out of the washer right away. I've used the Delay Start on several occasions so when laundry needs to be done, but so do errands I can do both and not worry about my clothes getting moldy. If you are looking for a front load washer, I would recommend this one. I love it, and you would too! April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by As a couple nearing retirement, we wanted a washing machine and dryer that was easy to use, easy on the environment and quiet. This is it. We love our new washer and dryer. First of all, they are beautifully designed. In remodeling our 1970's home, we decided we wanted our laundry area more accessible, meaning no longer in the basement. It is now on our main floor,with our new washer and dryer neatly stacked in a nook created for them. While our builders contemplated building special doors to hide them, we decided they looked so nice that we had no desire to do so. We also like the fact that the washer uses water efficiently. This was very important to us, both for consevation of water and of electricity for heating it. One of the most impressive aspects of the new washer is how very quiet it is. I am a composer, so I am sensitive to noise in a space. Our Whirlpool washer emits very little noise throughout its entire cycle. It just sounds well made! March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great washer - just one BIG issue. I love my washer! I do wish I would have gotten the larger size, but that's my own fault. The one issue that I continually have with every load though.... it eats socks and undies. Every load leaves at least 1-4 items caught up in the rubber stripping along the door. It's extremely frustrating because I have to rewash those items and my socks get all mixed up. I think some more thought into the design of the door and the rubber stripping could resolve this issue. Thanks! Allyson Maxey April 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really Happy with Washer We love our new washing machine. It is a little bit noisier than I thought it would be but certainly not too noisy and much quieter than our last washer. Our clothes come out quite clean and there is a nice variety of cycles to choose from. The only part that I don't like it that our toddlers socks get stuck in the rubber gasket at the front of the washer near the door and get caught up with bits of dog hair, etc that don't must be filtering through there. So when we unload them we need to give them a rinse and squeeze them out before we put them in the washer. I wish there wasn't a tiny sock trap! Otherwise this is an excellent product. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thr best I sold major appliances for seventeen years. This Whirlpool Washer is also fantastic. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The dryer does a great job in short time!! I was aggravated when my husband announced that my Christmas gift was a washer and dryer. Hmmm … why get a new washer/dryer? Didn’t he know I’d much rather have a trip to California? Alaska? New York? Or perhaps tickets to our team’s football season? Or perhaps a new TV? Besides, with a fist-banging in a certain ‘sweet spot’ on the old washer it worked fine. And, if I hung towels outside for a few hours, they could fluff up nicely in the dryer that otherwise would have to run through two cycles to dry them sufficiently. So who needed a new washer and dryer? Surprise! I did! And, goodness, do I love the Whirlpool’s that he picked out. Perfect in every way!! It has also made our African Grey very happy! He has promptly ‘fallen in love’ with the new washer … when it’s cycle is complete the washer makes a sound very similar to the sound of a perfectly tuned ukulele (as in “My dog has fleas”) and our African Grey repeats that sound quite lovingly and quite frequently! We’re all happy here March 13, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Machine rebuilt twice and now on third service I have had to have this machine rebuilt because of a bad drum that ripped up my clothes. The second time the drum broke off of the "arm" that holds it to the back of the washing machine and now it has a bad sensor. The worst part is I can't get the wet clothes out until the service person comes because of the automatic locking door. I guess I'll have some moldy clothes to look forward to replacing. This has been the worst purchase I've ever made. The best purchase is the extended warranty. I've saved at least $2000 in repair costs because of the warranty. What a pain! March 12, 2014
