Great machine

Jack55 5/7/2019

I really like all of the features on my washer, but it seems a little loud when the water is running in it.

Ranchlady 4/26/2019

We are ranchers. We have many very dirty loads. This machine holds up to the volume of dirty items including horse boots!!! This is my second Whirlpool washer. The only thing I wish is that they would last longer than 11 years!!

Better than I expected!

Marcia302 3/6/2019

For those who want a simplified version . . . this is it! Still has a digital control panel, though. My thought with these machines is "Less is more". I've had this machine less than a month. After reading the instructions I washed a few loads. All was well. But then I washed a bath mat without other clothes. It wouldn't spin. So I called Whirlpool and they sent a repairman. He was wonderful! He explained that the load has to be balanced, among other things. He demystified the machine for me! Of course, there was nothing wrong with the machine except operator error!!! It is too early to tell if this washer is wonderful. . . depends on how long it lasts! I hope it continues to be this good for a long time!

Slick and efficient

MLZK 9/3/2018

I bought my whirlpool set a short while ago and I'm very pleased with the overall performance. I have had a slight issue with the programming pad on the washer but Whirlpool has been right on top of it and will be replacing the control panel. I love the selection of programs on both the washer and dryer and they seem to be quite a bit more energy efficient than my previous set. The touch pads are VERY sensitive, but fortunately, there is a lock setting, so I've figured out how NOT to turn it on by mistake. I love that my grandson can't start it up once I've engaged the lock.

amrgj56 8/21/2018

Purchased another whirlpool washer. Enjoy the fact this one is much quieter. Features are easily understood how to use in the manual and from the prior purchase is helpful.

colorado mom 8/13/2018

my repair guy told me to get a whirlpool, so i did, as he is smart and knows is stuff! it is not as sexy as those others, but it gets the job done and looks great. the spin cycle is a bit loud but not a huge deal. i am happy and would buy again.

hojolo 5/2/2018

This is the second Whirlpool front loader washer we have bought. The first one lasted over 16 years and did a great cleaning job all of the time. The high speed spin really reduces dryer time.

Too many buttons, bells and options

MCHM 1/22/2018

We bought this brand and model because it was stackable and I couldn't find a stackable set that was simplistic. It has waaay more options than I will ever bother to figure out. The simplest machines were not stackable or I would have gotten something much more user friendly. I don't change water temp., I pretty much use the same quick cycle EVERY load....all that other stuff is just more "stuff" to short out, malfunction, break. It washes fine..so it does the job...but manufacturers are trying to tap into the tech savvy generations that might be impressed...I'm not. The dials and key pads are super sensitive. My laundry area is sort of tight, if I accidentally bump into the machine, I could easily push a button that I didn't mean to and foul up the whole load. I want my computers and ovens to be savvy, but not my washing machine. I suppose there's not enough money to be made for the market/product I'm suggesting.

Great washer!

Lasavage12 11/13/2017

I bought this in May and have been very pleased. It's very quiet and does a great job. My only criticism is with very heavy loads you have to keep setting it on the spin cycle to remove all the water from the load. Other than that I love it.

2 kids and a dog 3/17/2017

Great Laundry!One minor issue. The unit shut down mid load one time while washing blankets. Possibly due to balance. It self corrected after cutting the power. We haven't had any other issues.No mold smell. We leave the door open when not in use and wipe the gasket after use to recover dog hair.I would buy this laundry again.

Dependable and heavy duty

Michelle L. 2/20/2017

This washer gets the job done. My husband farms and gets his clothes DIRTY! This machine can hold the large coveralls with room to spare.My only complaint is I wish the setting buttons were easier to read or lit up. I don't want to put my glasses on to start a load of laundry.

We have been using the washer for almost a month and could not be happier. The washer is so quiet me and my wife find ourselves checking to see if it's still running. Would be 5 stars but haven't used it long enough.
