Rated 2 out of 5 by from It started off great but..... I purchased both a washer and dryer. The dryer....awesome, not a probblem in any which way. The washer, however, not so much....... The first one I had for a couple of days and started another wash, at which point Iit smelled like something was burning. Lowe's took it back and reinstalled a new one. The second one I had for approximately 2 weeks, and came home one night to find the Lid Locked light blinking. Nobody had started a wash, in fact nobody had been home all day. Could not get it to stop. Went through way to much to have them replace it yet again. I am hoping third time is a charm (it has been approximately one month since, and has been uneventful to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE MY WHIRLPOOL Growing up my mother swore by her Whirlpool washer. I am 51 yrs old. I have had 3 washers in my life. #1 GE, dead after 8 yrs was used for 2 adults & 2 children. #2 Whirlpool, 18 yrs. used by 3 adults & 6 childen/teenagers. Broke. My own fault as I didn't think about it freezing sitting on a moving truck overnight in single digit weather, froze the pump & cracked the hose. Had it repaired but it was never the same, finally stopped draining altogether and we replaced with #3. This is my favorite, I love my Whirlpool! It was an emergency when my old washer died, we had just moved to a rural area and needed a replacement quickly. The store I went to didn't have much of a choice, more high end appliances, way out of my price range but they did have this one Whirlpool on sale. I was skeptical at first; the tub felt loose but the salesman told me this is a floating tub that adjusts itself to uneven loads. Really? Amazing is all I have to say. It is so quiet, you don't hear a thing until the last rinse then its basically a lot of clicking as it reverses the spin every so often. The fact that I can add an extra rinse cycle or rinse in warm is really nice. The one touch operation is great when you are doing a lot of loads with the same setting. Just load, add soap & push the button. The settings for different fabrics is a must! I wash delicate clothing without fear of getting them mangled. I love the liquid bleach dispenser and cup for liquid fabric softener. I don't use them often but when I do I can really see and feel the difference than just dumping it in during a cycle. My kids are older now and they do their own laundry so its good to know that we have a quality machine to handle whatever they throw at it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from gets the job done but with a longer time I bought the washer in Nov 2011 and I have been disappointed with it till this day. I have gotten use to the lock feature, and with the pause button you can release the lock to add clothes after you add water, or if you forgot something. But if you pause it too long, the machine will automatically drain the water, and you can not stop that. The wash takes double the time to wash clothes no matter what setting, and it is very loud, even though it says it should be quiet, and the clothes come out with more wrinkles than when put in the washer. It does clean the clothes though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean real dirt We raise cattle. Our jeans and coveralls get full of mud and manure. Very dirty loads require three full heavy duty cycles plus pretreating and detergent booster to get clean. How is that efficient? Loads take FOREVER to wash. It's never taken me so long to get the laundry done. The hot water is only warm. The warm setting is cold. This machine is fine for people who work in an office, but not for families with real dirt. I purchased Whirlpool because our previous experience has always been good. Very disappointed this time around! Have had this machine for a month and am now looking for something different. Cannot wait to return this machine!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am spending more time doing the laundry with this washer than I want to. Sometimes it does not clean well, other times it does a great job. The lid lock is a tremendous pain. It takes 5 minutes to unlock, and another 10 for the washer to begin its cycle again. The auto sensor has malfunctioned twice. The first time, it suddenly started working again but the second time I am having to call service for a repair. It's less than a year old and I'm so disappointed. I wish I could buy a nice, steady, reliable machine again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I used to enjoy doing laundry! I agree the majority of those who have reviewed this washer. I wish I would never have purchased it, but there isn't much out there anymore. I have had all Whirlpool appliances for 36 years and the saying "They don't make things like they used to." holds very true. This washer takes way too long to wash a load (sometimes over 90 minutes) and I don't like the lock feature. I do appreciate the balance feature and that doesn't appear to take much time. I should have purchased a machine with a soak cycle and thought I did according to the dial. My machine sounded like it was going into orbit so I called for repair and a replacement part was installed. It is much quieter now. I do like the matching dryer and feel that it does a very good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why spend top dollars like my wife & I did before when less does better. My wife & I had a front load washer Kenmore & spent well over a $1,200 then after 3 yrs. the computer board went. warranty ran out & to much to repair. Now we bought this top load washer & I have nothing but good to say about this one we spent half the money we did with the front loader. The truth we feel the clothes come out cleaner & we do about 2 loads a day we have a family of 4 we wash for. Keep this in mind we had the best they say. Top dollar doesn't mean nothing spent less on this whirlpool top loader. & Don't spend and throw your money away to show off your washer to people because a simple top loader will get the job done with less trouble.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from liked my old whirlpool much better This washer is slower, louder, and less efficient than my old washer. Also, I liked the way my old washer dial moved as the washer went thru it's cycles, I could always tell exactly where it was in the process. This washer leaves me guessing the details of where it is in the cycle. I miss the buzzer when it finishes , too, that my old washer had. In general, it seems to get the clothes clean but it doesn't exactly excite me in the process. I am sure it is a safety feature ( to prevent lawsuits) but I also hate the way the lid locks when it starts to wash the clothes. Once again, my old washer just stopped whatever it was doing when you lifted the lid which I liked MUCH BETTER! Sometimes I want to add something to the load and now I can't anymore.
