Description Specifications
This Whirlpool 3.6 cubic foot capacity high-efficiency top-load washer uses just the right amount of water thanks to the H2Low™ wash system with Auto Load Sensing. This system 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.

  • Wash more at once. The top load washer's impeller increases its wash capacity making this 3.6 cu. ft. D.O.E. capacity washer our largest traditional top load ever
  • Save money and energy. The EcoBoost™ option uses a lower temperature and increases spin speed to provide excellent cleaning and reduce your overall energy use
  • This washer is CEE Tier 3* rated, and uses up to 74% less water and 76% less energy compared to pre-2004 conventional washers (*Based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualified product ratings)
  • Better efficiency and performance - The H2Low™ wash system automatically senses the size of each load to use less water and deliver better cleaning performance and gentleness than a traditional top load washer. Plus, the impeller at the

Top-notch machine

I've only had this machine one day but I am thrilled.  It cleans well, the tub is super large, especially since it doesn't have an agitator.  The machine is lightweight and although it vibrates during the spin cycle, it doesn't shake the whole room.  This is important because the room the washer is in has a weak floor and strong vibrations or shaking could be disasterous.

Criticism
By Dlars

Why?

The machine is designed to make washing clothes as difficult as possible while doing a marginal job. Everything is a problem. Can't put in soap, bleach, etc. when YOU want to. Lid lock is a pain in the ****, machine sometimes just stops in the middle of a wash cycle for no reason. Must be restarted and go through all the iterations it does to get going again. Makes strange, loud and annoying noises. After 6 months we bought a new GE old-style machine with agitator, no load sensing, high efficiency ****. We told the delivery guys the old one was virtually brand new and they could do what they wanted with it. Back to basics and happy again.

Stops mid-cycle after 4.5 years

|

We were happy with the washer for the first 4 years we owned it. Recently, it has stopped cycling through - getting stuck on the spin cycle, leaving the clothes in a lot of water. We can sometimes "override" the problem by setting the washer on Drain & Rinse, but even that doesn't always work. Nothing in the Troubleshooting section of the manual helps. We'll try a repairman but I'm not optimistic. It's well past the warranty time, but I would have expected a Whirlpool to last 9+ years. Very disappointed.

Deceived

|

Had it for 2 years, not broken down but don't get clothes wet enough half the time, and the other half don't wring out. Takes forever to get a load washed. May save water but wastes energy, not a good product

Don't use during an electric storm.

I only had mine for three days and during a storm our electricity went out. After it came back on my washer wouldn't work. Cost $180 for the repair. Not happy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not Pleased

WE'LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER WHIRLPOOL

|

I'd rate this machine a negative -5 stars. Absolute worst machine we have ever owned. Ours went 2 years before the gearbox went out which we replaced; 9 months later it went out again along with the lid switch and the wash spin actuator. All in I've paid an additional $225 to keep this washer functioning for an additional year. Today it broke again and it sounds like the gearbox. That's it I'm done with Whirlpool/ Maytag products for good; I'll add this manufacturer to the list of do not buy again.

Easy To Use

|

Great load capacity!! Handles heavy loads with ease!! The only minus is the "Locked" lid while in use. Three seconds is not long enough if the load needs to be shifted. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
