Enjoy exceptional cleaning and fabric care with a washer that combines the best of both worlds. The Whirlpool® top load washer provides powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care thanks to five different adaptive wash actions. It senses and adapts to the needs of each load and handles everything from heavily soiled jeans to delicates. Not only does this model help reduce shrinking and color bleeding with the Care Control temperature management system, but it also features a smooth impeller that is specially designed to give you better fabric care and more wash capacity. And, with 3.8 cu. ft., you'll always have enough room to wash more than two baskets of laundry in one load.

    Whirlpool® 3.8 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with 5 Adaptive Wash Actions

    By Wild In Utah

    from Salt Lake City, UT, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    This washer is certainly different. It does the job fine. You need to purchase special detergent, however, but many brands available in stores today are suitable. Sometimes it seems to take a long time to run through the cycles. Also, sometimes darks get lint concentrated on them and I need to rewash them. I don't like how I have to add the detergent first and I'm required to use a ball for the fabric softener. This takes extra time.

    Gets clothes clean

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I have had this washer for two months and have been pleased with it. It seems to do well with getting clothes clean and I like that it is mostly not computerized. It has enough options to choose from and they're simple to use.

    A new breed of washer

    By Verbal1

    from Kansas City, KS, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I bought this washer about a month ago. This is a high efficiency washer and very sensitive to how it is sitting, unlike my old washer. If this washer is not sitting exactly level, the tub will bang around when it changes cycles. Once I figured this out, it works great. It uses very little water and little soap is needed. I have been happy with it to this point.

    Lots of features

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    Had this washer almost 2 months. Not happy with it. Feel it is hard on our clothes, especially the ones with spandex or similar fabrics.

    Efficient unit except

    By madetherightchoice

    from Central MA

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I am please with my purchase. It has lived up to all expectation as stated. The one and only oversight (on my side for not noticing) and slight disappointment was that there isn't any softener dispenser. There are work around like the ball or beads but really miss just adding softener. Still overall am very pleased with this unit for a reasonable price.

    Great Product

    By Duke23

    from Lorton, VA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I purchased this product after every GE appliance in my new home failed after 3-4 years. I purchased Whirlpool products before and have never had a problem after several years. I've had the whirlpool washer for approximately 3 months with no issues. It makes a different sound than the legacy washers. It washes the clothes clean at any size and cycle. Only catch, I wish the design engineer would have allowed the user to open the lid after the initial water cycle starts to allow for additional clothes if you forgot to put in a few items.

    design a different machine

    By jmsh

    from Gloucester, VA

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    From day one, I have wondered why anyone would design and manufacture such a ridiculous machine. In spite of all of the "directions booklet hype," it doesn't make sense for a washing machine to spend time clicking three times to be sure the top is latched; then another few minutes sitting, making weird noises; then finally loudly spurting water which doesn't really do much washing, as a normal machine would. There's also the big draw-back of not being able to open the top, once the machine is started (without having to start the whole process from the beginning); thus you can't add an item forgotten or check on how much lather is being produced. It doesn't seem possible to put an item in just to spin dry, either, without going through the whole cycle. It's a nuisance, too, having to "leave the center clear," and to use a "certain type" of detergent. Please start making a sensible machine that gets clothes clean in much less time.

    Great washer

    By dennyb7

    from Fairmont, WV, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    Our old style top loader went bad and we bought this one. It uses about 1/3 less water than the old one. Clothes come out clean and dryer than the old one, causing less time in the dryer. No problems like the front loader mold smell. We are very pleased, although we would like to have had a softener dispenser.
