Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 236 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is a true disappointment. Sorry I purchased it. After our reliable Maytag broke, we felt confident that Whirlpool would be the right choice for our new washing machine. We were impressed with the "no agitator" feature - it seemed we were keeping up with progress. Many of my washed items do not go in a dryer and are hung up to dry. This is impossible now. All clothes are heavily entwined and extremely wrinkled. Having done laundry for 50 years (I am 75), I have no need for instructions as how to do wash. However, I followed all guidelines that could supposedly eliminate the heavy wrinkling result. Pack clothes loosely, use warm water, use gentle setting, put a towel in with the clothes, etc. To no avail! I actually have to entwine clothing from twisted pajama pants. So sorry I bought this product. Wish I had my machine with agitator back. I now dread doing laundry. As far as energy savings - what energy savings (since I now have to iron most of my clothes)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer for the money! We purchased this washer to replace a front loader that wasn't very good at washing comforters and other bulk items. Also, we were always disappointed with the front load because they are unable to soak clothes before a wash, so that has to be done in the sink, if you need it. This new washer is great. It's a little louder than our old front loader, much like an old top load. Also, this washer uses small amounts of water like our front load did. The difference though is this washer has settings that allow you to wash bulkier items, like comforters. Comforters get completely wet and are clean when they come out. With regular laundry, this washer washes just as well or better than the front loader it replaced. Also, the ability to soak items like whites is a HUGE plus for us. We really missed that functionality on our old washer. For the money, I don't think you can find a better deal. The missing dispensers for detergent and fabric softener are annoying, but the detergent can be added directly to the basket and you can use a fabric softener dispenser ball (or add fabric softener manually).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this washer from day one It's a great energy efficient washer for the price. We noticed a big difference in our clothes after the first wash. I was skeptical of the washer with no agitator but no longer! March 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cleans large bulky items very well - We purchased this washer as a W/D set and our review of the dryer is separate. Both items have been impressive. This is our first HE washer and we had a short learning curve and referenced the instructions a lot at first. Now that we are familiar with the washer we couldn’t be happier. I mention this as a friend and another reviewer of a similar machine failed to adjust to this technology and initially had problems. Follow the instructions and you will be pleasantly surprised how well this machine cleans and prepares your clothing. Large capacity for bulky stuff – i.e. small rugs or mats, lots of wash cycles, load specific and adjusting, less water, gentle, energy efficient, cloths cleaner – I’m happy! April 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by This machine is a nightmare! Silly me. I thought these new HE models would not be released for sale until they did just exactly what the old washers did. I was wrong. First of all, you must be very careful when you load these machines. There is no agitator but you must plop your items around the edge leaving the center free and if you do not load it just right your clothes will become entangled in a big mess. Next, do not even think about washing a queen size comforter or bathroom throw rugs. You must make a trip to the Laundromat to do these items. Next, expect more lint in the dryer - so much more that cleaning the filter in the middle of the drying cycle might be necessary. I have never seen so much lint. I am convinced that the old washers that filled with water removed lint in the wash cycle - nothing will convince me otherwise. Finally, I have heard from people who have families with children that these washers do not do a good job of cleaning the clothes. Since I am single and am over 65, I really do not have laundry with dirt stains, grass stains, etc. I am really sorry I bought this machine last Fall. I wish I had bought the traditional washer with the old fashioned agitator. April 6, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dissapointed in the product Very confusing to select the correct wash. Where do I put the soap? If I put it in first I have a chance the clothing, especially darks, and medium lights might get the colors lightened in spots. In the past, I always start to fill up the machine with the detergents mixing with the water, then the clothing goes in. I cannot do that with this machine. IF, I can get some water in the machine with detergent to agitate and leave the lid up for adding more clothing during the day, I can''t do that, because the system has the water draining out......wasting water.! Some loads have very little water in the wash cycle. When it "said" it is done, some of the clothing is dry in spots. One shirt still had the tomato piece stuck to the dry shirt. The stain was underneath the piece I picked off, making me wash the shirt again. I am very disappointed, March 29, 2014
