3.6 cu. ft. Traditional Top Load Washer with H2Low™ wash system

Ratings

This ENERGY STAR® qualified washer uses just the right amount of water. The H2Low™ wash system with Auto Load Sensing determines exactly how much water is needed, saving resources and delivering a deeper clean. This model also features the Care Control temperature management system, which ensures the water is warm enough to dissolve detergents but not so hot that it leads to shrinking or color bleeding. Twelve automatic cycles, four water temperatures, and four water levels give you exact control over your laundry. And the EcoBoost™ option uses a lower temperature and higher spin speed to reduce overall energy use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very economical to operate. I enjoy the fact of not setting the water level. Last month our water bill was 1 unit less than it had ever been. Also I received a rebate from our electric company because it's an Energy Star product. I like having to use less liquid detergent, another money saving feature. I like the steel tub and no agitator in the center of the tub. I believe it's more gentle on fabric and clothing. After the cycle is complete the washed items have less water in them , therefore requiring less drying time. I am extremely pleased with my new Whirpool washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has a mind of its own! I thought getting a "water saver" was smart, but I don't think the dials really mean much. I have been waiting for an hour for my bath rugs to finish; I finally put it on "spin and drain" and it's added water so far 3 times and I took it off "extra rinse". SAVE YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM AND DON'T CONSIDER THIS WASHER..............

Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad I bought this one This machine replaced a 30+ yr old washer also a whirlpool. The tub is big handles loads nearly 2x the size of my old washer, Very quiet. For a low water use machine I have been quite surprised and pleased by the performance, Everything cleans and rinses well and spins out very well. Definitely even though I am doing bigger loads my drying time is about 30% less. This of course saves even more energy cost. I have always liked the whirlpool brand for quality. I fully except many years of trouble free use out of this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy and simple to use Traded in whirlpool washer and dryer we bought new about 30 years ago, never had any problems with them. Most reliable set we ever owned. we have had other brands but were not as reliable as whirlpool. the sales person told us it was U S A made

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the machine. The noise level could be a little lower and the outer shell walls seems thinner than my old machine. I like the combinations available. They meet every fabric and dirt level combination. You can really zero in on exactly how you want your items laundered. I use Woolite for darks with all my dress pants and tops on the delicate setting and they come out beautiful. The machine handles my sheets and towels just as perfectly. The noise level bothers me on occasion. My laundry room is just off my family room and it can interfere with socializing and hearing the tv. I am a little concerned about the shell / outer walls of the machine. They seem thinner than my old machine. Maybe a heavier shell would cut down on the noise level .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy with it so far I decided to write this review because, when I looked for reviews on appliances, there never seem to be anything but upset people who take the time to post. We bought this to replace a washer that was in the house we bought last summer. We have had it about 3 months and so far, so good. Clothes come out clean, it is easy to use and it is not very loud (granted, we have a closed off laundry room but I think it is pretty quiet regardless). Overall, I give it a very good rating, assuming it lasts as I hope it will

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy The clothes are very wet after the final spin. Sounds like an airplane. Also vibrates no matter how you load it, even empty its noisy and vibrates.
Date published: 2013-01-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Money Saver What "really" sold me on this washer, was the EER rating of $23.00/ year cost of operating estimate on the yellow tag. Our old 1990 model Kenmore being replaced still had the yellow EER sticker on the side and it said $81.00/ year. Inflation from 1990 to 2014 says this $81.00 equals $147.00 annual operating cost today. So needless to say this decision was easy, it should pay for itself ($500.00 w/ tax) in about 7.5 years!!! The noise issue I read about is minor, everybody is used to the sounds of a conventional washer. Just load it like instructions say, add liquid, push start and forget about it.
