Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Washer Energy saving washer has no agitator so I was worried it may not get our laundry clean.....boy was I wrong! This machine does an outstanding job and has a double rinse option that I also love. We've only had the washer for a few weeks but we're really looking forward to seeing what kind of a difference it makes in our water bill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It drains without overflowing! My Maytag washer was 26 years old and like a family member. Watching it depart from my home was very heart-wrenching. It had washed all my children's clothing and they are presently grown; however, still living at home. They learned to use the washer; as well. If I had a dime for every cheerleader uniform, ball uniform and dirty towel we washed in the Maytag, we would be rich. Reading the directions and learning to adjust to a new machine just did not seem worth the effort. It was a totally different mind-set. The lid locks! What do I do if the water starts backing up? What if I want to add more clothes to a present load? I will never enjoy this machine. To my surprise, the water never overflowed due to the energy, conservation aspects of the new machine. It self-adjusts if the load becomes uneven and is self-efficient which leaves me much more time for me! I just wished it would last as long as my Maytag. All the people have said, "Washers and dryers do not last like in the past." I have been advised never to get one with all the bells and whistles since they are the first to go and it is cheaper to purchase a new one; as opposed to repairing an older version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! SO WONDERFUL THIS WASH MACHINE WAS A GIFT SO IT WAS A DOUBLE BLESSING. IT CLEANS GREAT AND GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY DO HAVE A DOUBLE RINSE IF YOU SHOULD HAVE REALLY DIRTY CLOSE. THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER SEEN IN A WASHER. IT SAVES A LOT ON WATER AND ELECTRICITY. IT ALSO SAVES ON DRYER TIME WHICH IS ADDITIONAL SAVINGS ON ELECTRICITY. IT TRULY IS A WOW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High tech washer It took a little getting used to, it sounds so different. It does a great job of washing & rinsing without wrinkling the clothes like the old style
Date published: 2015-03-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from enough water? Everything seems to work well and it has nice features, but when we do laundry that is particularly 'fragrant', it takes a few rinse and spin cycles to eliminate the odor. I've heard that top-load Hi-E washers don't always get the top of the load of laundry wet enough (the front-load ones continually rotate and flip the laundry over into the water), so it seems that the issue could be not enough water in the cycle. To account for this, we use high water option and run rinse and spin a second time. Seems to work fine and we're probably still using a lot less water than old machine. Our laundry room is too narrow for front-load machines, so had to go with top-load washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No. 1 in my book Couldn't be happier. Energy and water efficient. My last whirlpool lasted over 15 years!
Date published: 2015-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features! Love almost everything about it... I bought this a few months ago. We like the features and how well it cleans. We had to purchase this size due to the size of our drain pan that's in our townhouse. The only bad thing is - it's very noisy. But I had read other reviews and was prepared. Besides the loudness of it, it's great!
