        Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - Black Diamond:

        Had the washer and matching dryer for about a month now. This is not long enough to explore all of the options but we are quite satisfied with how it cleans clothes. Favorite things are the load and go which means you only add detergent once in a great while. It is also easy to program and reasonably swift in completing a load. Negatives are that it is not the quietest machine out there. The spin cycle sounds like a jet about to take off but at least it doesn't vibrate and it still sounds like a high quality piece of machinery.

        Clean Clothes in a Whirl

              I received this washer a few weeks ago and doing my laundry is no longer a chore I don't enjoy. The Steam I am 5'2" and trying to reach my laundry at the bottom of the washer was always difficult...not anymore with my Steam Front Load Washer. The washer is quiet when going through the cycles and it alerts you with a rhythmical tune when completed. I no longer have sopping wet clothes before placing in the dryer as the spin cycle removes the majority of the water. I also love the steam option and the Load & Go system which allows you to preload a large amount of detergent to dispense when needed. There are many different cycles to ensure your clothes get the best and cleanest of their ability. I find the soil level to be helpful for those extra dirty clothes. I could go on and on but then the other reviewers won't have anything to add. My suggestion is to definitely purchase this washing machine...you won't be sorry!

                    I love love love the load and go system not messing with laundry soap on every load is so awesome. I'm sure I was using way to much soap and now it does it for me. I have not been buying nearly the the amount of soap I used before.

                                In the week that I've had this washer, I've been pleased with its performance. I can't wait to see my next water bill to see if I'm saving water.

                                      If you are going to get this washer invest in the extended warranty.
                                      3 1/2 years into this the main bearings went out in a big way. When we complained about the 1300 dollar bill whirlpool graciously dropped it to 550 or so. ok whatever, lesson learned.
                                      7 weeks ago we were told it would be 3 weeks to get the parts. We called the repairman and he said he doesn't know when the parts are shipped, he just orders them. Then we call customer service who doesnt know where the parts are because they just schedule service. after an hour the wife finally gets someone who kinda knows something and they say the parts are on back order (guess this happens a lot) and she "guesses" they are supposed to be here in another 3 weeks. *sigh* the old whirpool washer worked forever.

                                            I previously had an older 3.9 cubic foot washer and decided to take the step up to the 4.5 cubic foot Loan & Go washer. Obviously I love the size & you can't imagine how nice it is not having to add detergent for each load.. Very convenient as I try to get my kids to wash more of their own clothes. But as a single dad, what I love the most is a feature they call "Fan Fresh". I tend to get a little busy at times and will leave the clothes in the washer when I go to work. The days of rewashing clothes because they smell seem to be over. I also love that you can set a pre-wash cycle automatically and when the cycle is over it goes directly into the wash cycle. My old washer would prewash and when it was over I had to go back to the washer and tell it to wash the clothes. I guess I only have one real complaint about the washer. It's so quiet I think I have to get a new dryer because the dryer is considerably louder than this washer even when it's spinning.

                                                  I have had this washer for 1 month now. There is so many WONDERFUL features on this machine. It is QUIET (that is a big plus), I have only had to fill the storage for the soap dispenser twice so far (this alone is so fabulous as the soap/money I have saved is GREAT). The clothes come out smelling so fresh and clean all time. It is so simple to operate it, press the button(s) you would like to use for your wash and you come back when the bell rings it is done! Love it, love it, love it! The best investment I have made! Thank you for such an amazing appliance.
