Amy 10/4/2017

Had for two weeks. We had Whirlpool front load in our old house. Our new house had an LG top load and the motor housing went caput. This is machine is quiet and does not vibrate - it is on the second floor of our home. You can't hear it downstairs. Also, the spin cycle is awesome! Our top load LG must have been awful or not working well for some time because our dryer times have been cut in HALF! I would buy this machine again in a heartbeat!! American made and great.

Mi Kate 10/4/2017

This is my second Whirlpool front load washer. There have been many improvements - the steam feature is great! However, I only gave it a 4* because I still have that icky smell when I use the heavy duty wash feature. The smell is not in the clothes but in the air in the laundry room. NO CLUE why this happens but am very happy with the machine otherwise.

Good cleaning performance

none 9/30/2017

Very happy with cleaning performance. Fast spin cycle is a little hard on clothes; weakens seams. Mine started leaking a bit from front door. Service people said that some dog hair on rubber ring was preventing complete seal. Really? Lots of people have dogs and the machine should be able to handle that. Also, some dog hair always remains in machine. I think manufacturer should be able to anticipate the presence of pet hair on clothes and design the machine to deal with it.

DaveinPA 9/29/2017

Very nice unit. Some complain about water pump noise. You hear the sound of rushing water when it fills - like on every washer I ever had. As long as it's not in your bedroom I don't see the fuss. Other than that, it's quiet as can be. Clothing comes out clean, and it's amazing how dry when it's done spinning. Nice balance of features, priced competitively. The pedestal base is also nice, but I wish it was a bit less expensive.

Quickest Washer with Great Spin Cycle

Anthony & Katie 9/26/2017

We've never had a washer that is this fast. Different features increase or decrease the length, but for us, the cycle is never longer than 45 minutes. The spin cycle does a great job. It never leaves the clothes too wet for the dryer.

Cautiously Pessimistic Optimist 9/25/2017

The dial is already finicky and won't take certain settings, and the moisture in the drum, even with the door open is of concern. It just feels damp and the rubber is flimsy. They say they fixed the mold-prone issues, but I am not convinced they did. I hope to be pleasantly surprised with the washer, since I am usually an optimist but am cautiously pessimistic that I will have other problems. It's only been a month or so, and it already has problems. Hasn't drained well each wash, etc.

JP in Florida 9/7/2017

This replaced an older model Whirlpool Front Loader which I had been happy with. After scouring reviews decided I would stick with the Whirlpool. Have only had about a month, but no complaints. The one thing I do not like is with my older model you could increase or decrease the length of the wash as needed. Wash times on most settings seem quite long. Love how well it spins the water out of the clothes requiring less drying time. Very nice appearance and love the Gray color. Like the steam setting when needed. Overall happy with the purchase. Hope to add the matching dryer.

Ashley K 8/25/2017

I wanted used appliances, my husband bought me new ones. I thought I would find this washer to be great but just not worth what you pay for new appliances. I also prefer top loading to front loading. I have been happily wrong! I use it for 10 loads a week, I love the Sanitize cycle. It's quiet, it's quick, it's easy to use. I like this washer over the front loading LG that my mother in law has.

I had to replace my first front loader as the bearing went out of it. This washer has a huge tube capacity and a great plenty of choices for cycles, spins, water temps and TumbleFresh. Great as a water saver - you can wash a single uniform or an entire load of towels - it senses how much water to use.
