Whirlpool® 3.8 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with 5 Adaptive Wash Actions is rated 4.3795 out of 5 by 1,739.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uses less water and detergent. I bought this washer about a month ago. I did go to the site and read the reviews. It does make some noises but it is a new machine and machines change with the times. This has sensors to tell it what to do. How much water to use, and to use special detergent. I hardly have to use any. It uses less energy to run, less water, less detergent, I am saving all around. No large agitator in the tub, it spins the clothes practically dry. Less drying time in my dryer. I did not pick up the extened warranty. After a week I went back and bought the warranty, Since it has sensors I wanted to be safe on the warranty. You have up to 30 days from purchase to pick up the waranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New style washer but very good It is a quiet washer and doesn't rattle the tiny laundry room when it goes through all its stages. Cleans very well with many options to choose from if a load requires it. Most of my loads are pretty much the same but there are other wash options that I use occasionally for specialty items. Getting used to the different sounds than my previous agitator model had, took some time but it's fine now. I liked getting a real paper type owner's manual (not just a web site address) with it and the handy informative chart for quick reference in it telling what each choice on the knob selector is for, especially when I was still learning about the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The good definately outweighs the bad!!! I love this washer. It is a little loud but my laundry room has doors so no big deal at all. For the price, it has everything I needed. I love that it is top load. I hate the automatic lock but it is a safety thing so I understand. The only thing it is missing is a end of signal sound but that's probably only me being lazy and forgetful. My clothes come out extremely clean, much cleaner than my last over priced, Samsung washer. I've never had a bleach stain on anything, which, was another issue with the last washer. I've only overloaded it once but that was my own fault. It got loud and obnoxious but nothing bad happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be better; after all, it's a Whirlpool! We purchased the Whirlpool 3.8 cubic foot top-load washer in February this year. It replaced a 20-year old work horse. What a difference. Suddenly our clothes were coming out bright and clean. No more dingy looking clothing. The WTW4900BW makes less noise and uses less water, less soap and less electricity. It produces brighter whites, sharper colors and clothes that just plain feel cleaner and are more enjoyable to wear. Did I mention that I'm of Scottish descent? The Whirlpool was also a tremendous value--we saved $100's over other brands. I have only one regret... We should have purchased a Whirlpool sooner!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from After just 3 washes, service was required which I was billed for.... So when working... this washer works pretty well, but after just 3 washes it required service. The technician came out and found a lose connection from the factory assembly. The bad news, Whirlpool charged me $75 to fix this problem. Why I have to pay for a manufacturing defect, I don't understand, if the washer wasn't on a second floor I would bring it back due to the poor customer service. The washer is much louder than our previous washer, a lot more clicks, rumbles and roars. We can deal with that since the washer is in its own Laundry closet. Now that it is working, I have no complaints about the washer, just that I was billed for something that wasn't my fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great step forward in technology and savings! This machine was a big step up in technology for us, given that it was replacing a Whirlpool that had served us faithfully for nearly 30 years! Without the traditional agitator, and taking the several intervals to assess the contents and adjust itself for proper cleaning, the biggest change is that none of the old familiar washing machine noises can be heard, especially early on. But the results are great and the machine not only saves a lot of water compared to the old style machine but also cuts the average drier time way down because the high speed spin cycle takes so much more water out of the clothes. On the whole, a great step forward in efficiency and very good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting no agitator This washer took some time to adapt to. I was used to being able to lift the lid during soak and add an item or two, but this lid locks so you have to pause the cycle and wait for the lid to release. Also, loading is odd. I can't easily determine if it is loaded to capacity. It does clean clothes vey well. They are somewhat entwined, but less so in smaller loads. I also don't dry everything, but I bought a great dryer and put items that I typically hang up on the extra delicate cycle for just about five minutes and then hang them. They dry with no wrinkles. It cleans better than my old machine which was another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE MY WASHER!!! I have had my washer for three months and I absolutely love it. It makes washing clothes easy. I admit I was skeptical about purchasing an HE Top Load Washing Machine, but now I am so glad I did. You don't have to worry about setting water level because it senses for you. Also the rinse options with or without fabric softener. Another big plus is that it wrings the clothes out so well that it has decreased my drying time in the dryer. It takes have the time that it normally did to dry a load. Most importantly my clothes come out fresh and wrinkle free. Also, I have notice the money that has been saved on my water and electric bill for its efficiency.
