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


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.

3.6 cu. ft. high-efficiency Top Load Washer with H2Low™ wash system is rated 4.1465 out of 5 by 1,270.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eco-friendly plus good quality and price Our old washing machine stopped spinning its agitator even though we replaced the most common known issue parts of the agitator. I told my dad we seriously need a new one and after doing some research I found this Whirlpool machine to be budget friendly and it doesn't have to problem of a spinning agitator like the old washing machine models. This washing machine offers a lot of choices for different types of fabrics. Also for a big family or anybody that is trying to budget bills the washing machine only uses low water except for one or selections two choices i.e. "bulky items/sheets"...oh its also an energy star rated. I am happy with my purchase with this washing machine. The noise isn't loud at all this machine might make different sounds than a regular agitator washing machine because the crazy high speed spinning makes up for the machine not having agitator which tends to have problems over time. No agitator means a little more wider space to put clothes in there. I got this Whirlpool at Spring 2013 and its is not Fall 2013 so far no issues. ** ((Images were taken in a dim light room..basement florescent light was broken.))

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk Still under the one year warranty, this unit has been serviced twice by the repair man through Whirlpool. Both times, the transmission has been replaced and the unit still seems to act funny. While the unit promises to handle large loads based on the design of the tub, the control settings, and the lack of the aggetator, it seems like the guts of the unit, the motor and the transmission, aren't worthy of the less efficient, less expensive units. Highly disappointed. My energy and water savings have been totally consummed by the use of a laundry mat and time away from work waiting for service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Machine! I bought this last year and it is a piece of junk! Saturday it just decided not to turn on anymore (yes I checked the outlet and fuse). I have been the only one using the machine over the past year and should not break down this quickly. Over course, I am one month outside this warranty. If you purchased this machine purchase the extended warranty, YOU WILL HAVE ISSUES! Luckily when the matching dryer broke down it was still under warranty. When the machine is working properly it takes over an hour to do a load, longer than the dryer. The positive reviews below have to be new users. Keep looking for another machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer! When my old Whirlpool washer needed to be replaced, I didn't know what I would choose, BUT I knew it would be another Whirlpool. Every appliance in my home is Whirlpool. This washer is super! Great features (I love how it senses how much water to use!). It washes the clothes very clean and spins them very dry. I highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a washing machine. On the negative side (the only negative as far as I am concerned) is the noise. It makes quite a bit of noise, and not the conventional washer noises. Clicks and pops... It was very unnerving when I first used it., but i am used to it now and it doesn't bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck! Please don't listen the all of the bad reviews about this washer written by people who did not read the manual. If it is loaded properly and the correct setting is selected, this washer works tremendously. The bad reviews are all from people that tried to operate this washer like an older model that has a tumbler. You can't just throw clothes in and hit start with this machine. In terms of value, this is the best washer on the market for someone that does not do huge loads of laundry. I live by myself so the 3.6 cubic feet of capacity is plenty for me. If you have a family or like to do one massive load with all of your clothes, consider a larger capacity model within the same line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am SO sorry I bought this washer Last year I bought this Whirlpool because it was suppose to be energy efficient and I thought the lack of an agitator would mean it would hold more clothes. HA! One cotton blanket will put it out of balance, it won't remove stains at all. I now wash many many more small loads so it doesn't get out of balance and have to wash most loads a couple of time, run it through an extra drain and spin, etc. Overall this washer is the worst purchase I have ever made in my life and a constand aggravation to me. I can't wait for it to breakdown so I can get rid of it and go back to a real washing machine with an agitator.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst washer! Well, I have not had this washer one month and the repair man has been twice. The washer does NOT balance itself. It does NOT wash the powder or liquid out of your clothes. It does not spin completely every time, you have to set it again to drain/spin. I have ruined so many clothes because the liquid detergent stained the clothes and powder detergent is left in clumps on the clohes. The washer does not put enough water in the barrel to wash clothes properly and you cannot wash but a very small amount of clothes. DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this high efficiency washer For the reviewers that say the bad reviews were because we didn't read the manual -- NOT SO! I have read the manual, followed the instructions for spreading clothes around leaving middle clear, and use HE detergent. If clothes are stained (basil pesto on a shirt, cantaloup pulp on a shirt) they DO NOT come clean. I have clothes that come out not even wet -- the washer did not fill appropriately with water. Why, oh why, did they stop making the old fashioned wringer machines and put out this stuff. Yes, I can fit a bulky comforter in the washing machine, when I couldn't in my old wringer machine, but how often do I do that? It's the every day clothes that I want clean.
