Comments about Whirlpool 3.4 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White on White:
I would give this washer a minus star if possible. You can't open the lid after it starts. It takes 8 minutes to fill and takes an hour for a load to wash from start to finish. If it doesn't start after pushing "start" button, you have to unplug it for 15 min. so it can clear it's brain. I don't have the time. After calling customer service to find out how long each wash cycle was, I was told the machine decides how dirty my clothes are and how long they need to wash. Really??? It know how dirty my clothes are???? I know the world of machines being "smarter" than humans but I've been doing laundry for many years and I know how to wash. I don't need a washer to tell me how. I hate, did you understand, I HATE this washer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the features because they are easy to understand and written so you can see them without the aid of glasses.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this 5 years ago and hated it since the day I used it!!! I hate the lid lock, and you cannot change anything once it starts. It's tangled and ruined long sleeved shirts, tangled them around the agitator, put holes in shirts, ruined curtains. Now I'm having trouble with it not spinning properly, and I can't even pay someone to come and look at it! I will not spend $100 to have someone come and diagnose the problem because I hate it so much. Please don't waste your money on it, plus ruining clothes!

Lasted Only Three Years
By Fort Worth Happy Csmper
After three years, the balance started acting up. When my husband opened it up to check it out, he found parts wearing out (cheaply made) and rust from the bleach dispenser (which is used perhaps once a month.) It's not worth buying parts to repair and it's far from the quality of mechanical items in mom's Whirlpool. It was built to not last.
avoid this machine
from Lockport NY
After approx 2.7 years this machine is broke-needs a new gear. This is after 2.7 yrs of easy life. We are a two person household and did not place any heavy demands on this machine. The service tech said he has seen this problem on this model mutiple times. Got to go...shopping for a new washer!!

Ours just died on xmas eve...
I gave this washer machine 4 stars since it handled a heavy load for 5 years of use.My wife and her sister who we moved in with their kids used the machine around every other day.It saw heavy usage but now the transmission went out and will run around 456 dollars to fix. Much cheaper to buy a new one.

Broke After 2 Years
from Eagle Mountain, UT
Stopped locking, thus won't spin any more after a little less than 2 years.
Broke after 2 Years of use
from Bixby, OK
This washer's main computer board broke after 2 years of usage. Washer just kept restarting itself over and over again. Warranty is only good for 1 year. Wish they'd stand behind their products more. They sure don't make things like they used to. Very disappointed.
DON'T BUY IT - it sucks!
By Ellen & John
from Westborough, MA
Ours is about 4 years old and it's never worked right. Now we've been told it's not even worth fixing so we're washer shopping again. You used to buy a decent washer and get at least 10 years out of it. I'm staying away from Whirlpool this time!
