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

The reasons are simple. Great cost (because I caught a deal on a holiday), very efficient cleaning, no noise, and holds a lot of clothing. I really enjoy this brand of whirlpool and will never use any other brand for my washer and dryer.

              We bought this 3 weeks ago and am glad we did.
              It performs very well on all cycles.
              We have many loads of heavy soiled clothes and this machine handles them very well.

                    After purchasing 5 Whirlpool appliances at the same time, including the Cabrio washer & dryer and writin a review regarding the noise during the wash cycle, I was contacted by a very nice person from Whirlpool Corp. who basically stated that this noise is a common noise and there is nothing that can be done regarding this noise. I am very sorry that I purchased these appliances and would tell everyone else to avoid this brand. This washer makes more noise than our older agitator model did.

                                We've had this washer for a couple of months and are very satisfied. The only problem has come from the fact that I did not explain to my wife how unlike our previous top loader it was going to be: the salesman who demonstrated it also emphasized its advantages rather than its differences. Our previous washer had been her favorite of all the washers she's ever had.
                                We glossed over the differences and, as she discovered them, she was not initially happy. For example, axiom one was that 'lots of water gets clothes cleaner'. She had heard us say this one saved water, but a 'tub without water' didn't seem like the way to go. I explained that it might be better to think of this washer is as a front loader that loads at the top. That approach seems to have helped both of us understand some of the differences.
                                We have slowly worked through this and some similar issues (the cacophony of new sounds that are at best non-traditional for a washer are another good example). The gist of the matter to this point is that it gets clothes as clean as our previous washer; uses much less water, and seems to be gentler.

                                      We bought this unit to match the dryer that we purchased. My wife likes the size of tub, controlss, and ease of use. Her complaint so far is "it is hard on clothes, I see wear on clothing that wasn't there before. It has even torn some buttons off my clothes".

                                      Again, it is too early to give an honest evaluation of quality or dependability after about 1 month ownership.

                                                  I was in the audience of the Ellen show on March 3rd and we all received a Whirlpool washer and dryer. The dryer is great. To those of you experiencing a lot of noise, I would recommend that it NOT be on an overflow pan.They don't mention this anywhere. When I used the deep water cycle the basket dipped and ate into the plastic of the overflow pan. Whirlpool replaced the motor and it seems to be working fine. I am , however, afraid to use the deep water cycle. For the most part, it is a little noisy, but not as bad as it was. I have no idea how long it will last, but my last dryer (not washer) was a Whirlpool. I sold that and after 23 years there are still no problems with it. I'm confused about recommending this and wish the next category below gave me the option of "I don't know yet."

                                                        Love this washer! It fits so many clothes at once and does an excellent job. We will never have to use that disgusting, stinky, moldy front-loader washer again.
