    Great Performance

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

    I bought this washer a month ago and have nothing but good things to say about its performance. I am happy to have gotten the larger capacity for al the comforters and throws that I wash on a regular basis. My only warning is to make sure that your drain has at least a two-inch pipe to handle the rush of water, when it empties. I love tis appliance and will be purchasing more whirlpool items in the future.

    This is a great washer. I originally went to the store to by another Whrilpool Duet but opted for this machine instead. I am glad I did. I t has been fantastic. It washes clothes so fast my old dryer can't keep up. It is so quiet I forget I am washing clothes till the bell goes off. I would recommend this washer!

    Quiet running.

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

    This machine is very quiet and does a great job of cleaning the clothes. The 4 star overall is from the tub bottom being quite low. If you are of short stature, you will need a step stool to reach the bottom.

    Easy to use and gets the job done

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

    Got this machine a few weeks ago and just have to say I am impressed with the way it is working. Clothes are clean and uses less water and energy than the previous washer. Word of advice is to follow the guidelines. Mix loading may cause the clothes to come out wrinkled. Separate the clothes and set setting to the proper recommendation and Bam it comes out perfect. Towels cleaner than before. Capacity of the washer is amazing. Comforters not a problem.

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

    During the first load, my wife said ; how can It wash, there is no water. After reading the manual I found out that this the way It operate. Well guess wath the clothes are as clean as the old washer and we use 80% less water and less soap. The only thing that you have to get use to is the cycle time that is longer but the quietness of the unit makes up for it.

    Better than the front load washer

    By Summer Breeze

    from Hilton Head Island, SC, United States

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

    Got this unit a month ago and it does a really nice job. Had some concerns about the new designs without the center agitator, but loading it as instructed is producing good results. Big plus is not worrying about drying the seal to avoid mildew, which was the main problem with our previous front load unit. Plus the front load unit we had (not a Whirlpool) would not do a good job spin drying heavy loads, even when using extended spin cycles. This washer has not had that problem at all.
