Whirlpool® 3.6 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with Care Control Temperature Management System is rated 4.4482 out of 5 by 1,718.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive machine! We replaced our 10 year old top loader GE with the Whirlpool 3.6 top loader. Our appliance repairman recommended it because he knew we liked top loaders without all the buttons, (still like knob controls), which this has but move effortlessly. We purchased this machine and it has been fantastic, runs perfectly, controls work very well and lots of settings to use. It runs pretty silent except for some clicking as it sets itself, does a load quickly and the spin drying is twice as good as our old GE, hence making it much quicker in the dryer, saving time and money. We are very happy with our purchase and with the recommendation on this model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TAKES TOO LONG TO WASH CLOTHES Just had this washer and dryer set delivered today...June 22, 2014..Washed my first load of clothes and it took exactly 53 minutes to wash...Contacted Lowe's since that is where I purchased this set and was advised this is normal for new machines...I purchased the washer with least amount of gadgets..Tomorrow I will contact Whirlpool and see if this is correct...I haven't purchased a new washer in 10 years, but this seems like this would waste alot of energy going 20 minutes or more than the old washers...Will write a new review and let everyone know what happens..Also, this should be in print so consumers can make informative decision when purchasing a washer..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Machine is nice looking and does okay job. I did a lot of research before purchasing. I wanted an easy to operate machine with knobs. Nothing fancy but durable. I guess I am comparing it to an older Whirlpool model. They just don't make anything like they use to. It is an easy machine to use. These are the things I discovered since I started to use the machine. I was surprised on how noisy it is. It takes a long time to fill with water. It gets off balance very easily when doing a small load. I always rinse twice when using a fabric softener to make sure clothes are completely rinsed. Once I discovered the above things I know what to expect on my wash day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Washes Quick and Well We have had this washer for one month, and so far it has done a very good job. Good capacity, 45 minutes for a Normal full load and the clothes are clean. It has no lint filter, so on one occasion we had to wash two pair of black pants twice to remove lint from an old towel. Next time we have that situation, we'll opt for a second rinse which will hopefully remove more lint. It sounds different than our former 31 year-old Whirlpool , washer, but is not loud just different. Our only concern is the lid, which does not have a built-in stop so, when open, it rests on the Wash Cycle Knob. This will scratch the lid. I have attached a small bumper to try to avoid this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice size for bilgger loads After researching and reading other reviews, I decided to go with the standard washing machine. No fancy features. It has all you really need, water levels, water temps, fab softener and bleach dispensers, etc. and it does not take over an hour to wash like the fancy HE machines. I like that it has a cold temperature that acutually adds some warm water to the ice cold water from the water lines in the winter. I manually had to do that berfore. It does agitate differentlly than the old washing machines and it is a little noisy but overall, it is a good machine so far. I hope this lasts 20 years like my old Whirlpool. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall great washer I bought my washer a few months ago and couldn't be happier! This is a great washing machine, awesome load capacity, I can even wash my king size comforters in it that I used to have to make a special trip to the laundromat to wash! I love it! It cleans wonderfully. The only downside is that you cannot allow clothes to soak before washing due to the fact that it drains the water if left in started for 10min. ,and theonly other problem I have had is the inability to change load size once started without draining all your water and soap and starting all over. Once you manage to get accustomed to the way the machine operates it's a GREAT machine! I wouldn't trade mine!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dream Come True!! The best, best machine ever, is built and works as the quality ones they made years ago. It does not tell you what to do, or how much water you are allowed to use. Washes and spins very quietly. I returned 3 GE machines in the past year and half and the 4th one I just put to the curb, less than 6 months old. I took the financial loss, but it was worth it for this wonderful Whirlpool. One leaked some kind of permanent staining fluid on all my clothes, and the other 3 would dance across the floor as the gears would crank extremely loud. I dreaded doing laundry. Trust me, this is the machine you are looking for at a great price point.
