Whirlpool® 3.6 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with ENERGY STAR® Qualification is rated 3.8491 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not ready for prime time? When it works, it works very well. It's easy, has lots of different settings for all kinds of clothes, and we've had no problems with how the laundry comes out. Unfortunately, when it doesn't work, it _really_ doesn't work. We had to have pretty much every major part in the machine (including the main control board) replaced at the six-month mark, and it took multiple visits from the repairman to get everything fixed. Good thing we have the warranty! It makes me wonder if the HD technology was released to the public a little too soon. Maybe this will be better in a year or so... but not quite yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Service man just left this morning after I owned the product for only a few months. I bought a Whirlpool since my previous Whirlpool lasted 10 years through 3 kids & a few stomach viruses. My new machine with electronic components started giving us problems within the first 2 months. I wish I insisted on a machine w/o electronics so it would run with no problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Day 2 of my new washer. If I could return, I would. I thought this water sensor was a good idea. I timed this feature and it takes 15 min. to adjust the clothes and water before it even begins to wash. The noises are terrible. Had I known I would have purchased a washer that I would adjust my own level and then the wash cycle begins. This feature is a total waste of time.Very noisey as well. My advise is to look at a different model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Technology 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The over-all outcome is good I was looking for a top-loading washer with an agitator - got one - but; I am disappointed that I cannot run the water in first, and then put my clothes in after I have added the detergent. I am unable to let the load 'sit and soak' because the water will run out. I understand the lid lock during the spin but not during the whole cycle. I guess I just want more control over my load of wash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The noise is terrible. The noise of both the sensor and during washing is terrible. It sounds like a sick duck caught in the machine. As well as it spins it does tighten up all the clothing but that's tolerable compared to the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we chose this machine 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really liked this washing machine This model replaced a Whirlpool that was bought about 20 years ago. My wife did a LOT of research, but mainly to Whirlpool. She really likes the features. At first it took a little to get used to the new sounds. After a week of use I called the Customer Service. He explained the "new" sounds. I was given very good advice about the sounds. The CS Rep answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. We just had to adjust to a new washer. We have had this washer foor 2 1/2 months. It is doing vey well. Highly recommend!
