3.6 cu. ft. high-efficiency Top Load Washer with H2Low™ wash system

Ratings

This high-efficiency 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 ENERGY STAR® qualified 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 2 out of 5 by from Poor all over I have had this machine for 2 years. The high spin is damaging my clothes and sheets and there is no way to use the gentler spin with a regular wash, or add more water. To get clothes even close to clean I have started doing every wash with an extra rinse, and using the Gentle wash whenever I can. NOT an energy saver when you factor in that extra rinse and replacing clothes and linens years too early.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible waste of money This washing machine can't even clean a small baby blanket. I might as well get a rock and head to stream and start scrubbing. I would have better results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor durability I bought this product about two and a half years ago. While washing some king size sheets the spin mechanism was damaged.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Money wasterrr I hate this washer, money wasted! Purchased it Aug 2012 and its dead already. Family of 3 normal washing. Will not rinse or spin, sensing then shuts off, sounds like an old car trying to start but can't start. Wasteful we have to re-wash clothes because they don't get clean from the 1st washing, so not green since we are wasting water and electric. Have to use the bulky cycle if you want to wash more than 2 pair of pants+2 blouses/shirts and get them clean most times that can take an hour to complete. I apologize to the buyers who purchased this washer since 2012, for not writing this review months ago. I normally check the reviews before making a large purchase as this, but didn't for this washer because our previous Whirlpool lasted over 10 years. As the saying goes, "They don't make them like they use to." Maybe we purchased the washer made on a Monday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable Good smaller washer, if you have a larger family upgrade to a larger washer this one has a hard time with heavy loads.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst washer ever !!! I purchased this washer on 10/5/2011 less than 3 1/2 years ago. Within the first 2 weeks it had to be serviced 2 times because of belt slipping. During this time of ownership we have experience terrible results from this machine. All black clothes always had white spots on them after being washed. You would need to rinse them a second time. At this time the clothes is not being wrung out during the regular wash cycle, it is skipping cycles. The spin cycle is not working properly. This is by far the worst washing machine I have ever purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible washer! Bought this two years ago only because it was the cheapest option I could afford. In the beginning yeah it was a nice washer. Over time it starts to become a nightmare. There are only two people in this household, to which a few loads of laundry gets done once a week. The noise is so loud. For the past 6 months the sensor led flashes and it takes forever for a load to start. Once it finally does the cycle doesn't complete and we end up wringing out water. This week a new addition has been made to the horrible machine. I go to start a load and it gets stuck on sensing and the lid is locked. I stood waiting for it to start for over 15 minutes! I go to cancel the cycle and the button doesn't work. Husband finally got it to work and it never agitated the clothes. Looks like we will be getting a new washer soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last! First BRAND NEW washer was very excited making investment. Sad now only lasted 1.5 years! AFTER warranty ran out, how convenient! Will cost more to repair than new one.
