    So much better then the Front Loaders

    By BWK4

    from Austin TX

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    Our previous two washers were front loaders and had a tendency to dance around the laundry room when washing towels or other heavy items. This top loading Whirlpool has a huge capacity and remains rock solid no matter what we wash. Lots of wash options, and the control panel is very easy to see and understand. Eco monitor and ecoboost features allow you to choose the most efficient options.

    A Good Washer But....

    By Bunch

    from Catskill, NY, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    This washer is great on saving water...having a well this is important. It does a good job on our clothes BUT when I put in one of my quilts...it is terrible....constantly is "UL" or out of balance. I put the quilt in evenly and the washer pushes it all on one side! I pause the washer and adjust it because it sounds like the tub is going to blow out the side! A few minutes later...its "UL" AGAIN! It takes me 3 or 4 times of this before it will actually finish. I am very unhappy with the washer because of this. All the other features of this washer are great but this is a real issue with me. I have owned mine for a year+ and I'm happy with all other aspects of this washer except trying to wash a quilt. When I was deciding on a new washer I was going between a front loader and this one. Kind of wish I made a different decision. I never had this problem before this washing machine. I love the Whirlpool brand...its just this washer I am not happy with.

    Best Washer Ever!

    By BCGEARY

    from Louisville, KY, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    When my old Whirlpool washer finally bit the dust after 23 years and 4 kids it was time for a new one. There was no doubt that it would be a Whirlpool but when I started shopping I noticed that all of newer washers no longer had the long agitator in the center. I'm old school and just didn't see how my clothes were going to get clean with that little nub of an agitator in the new models. I was VERY skeptical about purchasing the newer type but really didn't have a choice. I'm very pleased to tell you that it has been the best purchase ever! Not only has my water bill decreased by $40, I can wash bigger things like my comforters and blankets with no problem and yes, the clothes are very clean. I would recommend this product to anyone!

    Great new washing system.

    By Josy

    from Winneconne, WI.

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    Have used the washer for a few months. Did not understand at first how it could work without a agitator. Having a clear glass cover we could see how the clothes were moved around from bottom to top and around in the tub. The clothes come out very clean and dryer than they did from our standard washer.

    Great Washer

    By Katie999

    from Michgan

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    I ordered this washer online with a gas dryer that did not match (intentionally). The washer is amazing. I like the upright, top loading style because the clothes do not fall on the ground when I am transferring from washer to dryer, and I like the high efficiency design with the high capacity. It's great for washing larger items as well like blankets and sheets.

    Cabrio Washer

    By LRM53

    from New Braunfels, TX, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    I purchased this machine around the 4th of July. It is so large, I need a step stool to empty it! I don't understand how it cleans with so little water. My whites do not come out as clean as they used to in my old washer. However, it seems to do all right with all other things.

    We bought this machine a few months ago and love the large capacity basin. We are always caught up with the laundry now! We also love the variety of settings and the way the clothes come out so clean!
