Water Saver Feature
from New York, NY, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Piggyback Gas Washer/Dryer Combo - White on White:
I replaced my whirlpool combo washer/dryer with the new model. The first time I used the washer, I discovered the full load is washed in a half full machine of water. I thought something was wrong with the machine until I looked up this feature in the owner manual. This should be brought to the attention of the purchaser. So, even though this is supposed to be an energy saving feature, I have to use the machine more frequently. I am not sure I would have purchased this model if I knew this in advance. I am not sure I would recommend this product because of this feature.

Our second combination
By Don of Luther
from Red Lodge, MT
We purchased our first combination 19 years ago, and when it finally gave up, we looked around and for our needs the new combination was a no-brainer. The new generation is better than the last, and we thought the old machine was great.

We have a small space for a washer/dryer, but this machine fits just right and it works well
Old and New
By Bill D
from Pittsburgh, PA,
I had my old Whirlpool Combination Washer Gas Dryer for ten years ,loved it. Loved the old model so much that when I needed a new set I got the New Model by Whirldpool. The new model is more complicated .
on a 1 10. i give it a 5
This washer was delivered a couple weeks ago & I have had a service call, beachside of the bleach dedpenser
We bought the unit about 2 months ago,no problems with the combination washer-dryer. Only one complaint , the dryer door is dificult to close!
Just the right size
from Baltimore, MD, United States
I am very happy with my purchase. The machine I replaced was also a whirlpool and I had that one for 16 years and never had any problems. when it started to have problems I was told to get another one because of the age of the machine and I had no doubt about what machine I was going to get. When the salesperson tried to sell me several other machines, none of them would fit in my laundry room. Finally, I told her I wanted a Whirlpool because that what I had before. It was a perfect fit. It when right into the space on the first try. It took them three machines to get it right.

Like others, I object very much to this model's "answer" to greater energy efficiency standards. We replaced our 10 year old combination Whirlpool with this new model last year. Instead of building a better efficiency motor, Whirlpool has provided an inferior design that did not cost anything more to manufacture. First, the temperature settings (as others have noted) do not actually allow a hot wash, or a warm or hot rinse. This counts toward "energy rating" goals, but the washer is useless for sanitizing, stripping mildew, or...just washing with hot water. Second, this washer skimps on water (the "large" setting only fills the tub half full with water) and the controls provide no manual over-ride, which counts as "saving energy" for the manufacturer, but leaves items in a large load sticking out of the water for several minutes of the wash cycle. Third, because of the very small volume of water in the tub, the agitation is more severe than in previous top-loaders. We have had small holes develop in all our sheets that are more than one year old, especially on the fitted sheets near the elastic. I suspect the agitator catches the material and exerts more force on it than with the greater amount of water that the agitation was designed to move. We have never had holes develop before, and we have only premium sheets (Lands End, Ralph Lauren, Cuddledown of Maine). Whirlpool: build a better motor to meet energy regulations, don't take your energy savings out on your customers!
