              I have had this washer for 21 months and I have called Whirpool,tried soaking, used Affresh with no results! I wish I could trade it for a washer that washes. Only positive, it looks good---wish it could wash clothes.

                          I bought this washing machine to replace one that was not working well and had the agitator in the center of the machine. It took up a lot of space. This new machine does not have an agitator in the center of machine and is just wonderful. I love everything about it.

                                Quiet, efficient (uses way less soap and a lot less drying time) and easy to use sums up this machine. I love the time delay feature. I go out to exercise on laundry day for three hours: I set the delay for 2 hours and when I get home the machine has just stopped and the clothes are ready for the drier. I would recommend this washing machine to ALL. The detailed "Cycle Guide" in the handbook is very useful and made it very easy to learn how to use this appliance. Thank you Whirlpool for another great product (our last washing machine was also a Whirlpool and lasted 28 years with only one small repair needed in that time which speaks well of the quality you offer).

                                                  I bought this washer a month ago, my 7yr old daughter called it "the canyon" cause it's deep and wide. We are very satisfied with the washer the clothes come out cleaner and drying time is less in the dryer, it's an all around great product
