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.
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.
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.
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
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.]
Bought this 2 years ago, still works. Might have to buy another washer soon. Overall experience was great!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Washer is only 5 years old and already does not work. It does not spin out water and trying to get help .is a nightmare. No where to locate a repair manual to trouble shoot
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.
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.]
I wish I could put 0 star on it. I bought this machine 4 years ago, and it never really clean probably . Now it just stop working ! What a piece of junk
