Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Have had this washer for a month now. Nowhere near enough water to clean clothes and agitate them properly. Dark clothes come out with soap deposits on them, and I am using HE liquid detergent!! Even the deep water wash/rinse does not cover the items. How clothes are meant to be washed properly when there are only a couple inches of water in the tub is beyond me. I could put up with the noise if the washer actually washed clothes!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Products (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Very happy with my whirlpool product - when they say they dont make em like they used to, that is very true among the products you get today, but im very happy with how this product has turned out there are only three key features i wish it had: option to keep water running / fill tub with the lid open - it turns off while its filling option to pick "medium, large, small" size load - but i suppose its being assessed via autosensor? option to not continue to filling once you add an addition item on auto sensor, sometimes its just a sock or a cloth, i dont think additional water is required at that point

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whirlpool 4.4 Top Load I brought this a month ago. I regret purchasing this washer. The washer spin cycle sounds like a train passing by. It is very annoying since my laundry room is on the main floor. My son had visited me a couple of days ago and when he walked into the house he said "What is that noise". I replied my new washing machine. He replied "How can you live with that noise". I have had two previous Whirlpool washers with no noise problems. My last one was 15 years old, not noisy at all. This will be the last time I purchase a Whirlpool product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water level too low (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) My first reaction was to the nice deep stainless steel tub with central agitator was positive. My previous machine had no agitator and it took hours to do a load because it went off balance frequently. When I used it I was dismayed to realize the "deep wash" was only 3", good enough to wash and rinse maybe 2 pillow cases. You appear to be considering the environment by reducing the use of water, but this is a false impression. The average household would require many loads to meet their needs, using more water, soap and time, but one finds this out only after the purchase

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very impressive (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Takes a really long time to fill up when using the bulky sheets option but i only use bulky sheets option, if not clothes don’t wash properly and not enough water. it has a huge drum but will not let you wash more than a small amount of clothes if you use any other option besides bulky sheets for example if you plan on washing more than two pair of jeans along with a few shirts and maybe a few pairs of socks I would recommend the bulky sheets option. The lid locks after filling before the wash cycle(useless feature) to unlock you must pause the wash or spin cycle which can take a while to unlock during spin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOISY (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I have this machine in my basement and can hear it when it is filling up it has a loud knocking sound when filling starting and stopping. Also doesn’t matter what setting I put it on for water, extra water and extra rinse clothes come out with lint ex: twin THIN comforter and twin set of sheets on heavy load comes out with lint even after extra rinse. Would NEVER buy another. I can’t even exchange it at the brick because no trial period. Going to sell if I can

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not pleased with features. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I have used my washer for a few months now and love how dry the spin cycle leaves the clothes dry. However I have found the washer leaves a white residue on dark items, to the point where I have to rewash items. I am using the proper HE detergent and have adjusted the AMT used but it hasn't corrected the problem. I would like to have a feature to set a specific time for wash vs preset timer. In addition i would prefer being able to select the water level rather than auto sense as even the deep water wash and rinse does not always provide sufficient water level.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) My only issue I have with this washer is it doesn’t add enough, to my satisfaction, water to do a load/cycle of laundry. Even selecting Deep sensing cycle doesn’t add a lot...I’ve lifted the lid & checked a few times and the clothes aren’t even covered with water! other than that I’m satisfied with the washer. Also, when we first had the washer I did my mattress cover, I added bleach in the appropriate but when the load was finished there were a lot of black spots on the mattress cover. I had to wash it again several times for it to become entirely clean!

How long is the average wash cycle... from start to finish

Asked by: Precious
Hi Precious, Thank you for contacting the Whirlpool Central Advisors! Unfortunately, we cannot give you exact cycle times as all of our cycles are auto sensing, so the timing of a wash cycle depends on the type of fabric, load size, soil level and any other options selected. Have a great day - Whirlpool Central Advisors

Do you know how long will it take for this washing machine to finish Normal or Heavy cycyle?

Asked by: Kepler
We use the "Normal" cycle all the time. It varies from 45 minutes to about 50 or 52 minutes, depending upon the size of the load. ALL of the newer washers are this "slow"compared to the older ones that took about a half hour. But, I have to admit, the energy consumption of the newer washers is FAR lower than the older washers. Our power company tallows us to view our daily consumption, and we have noted that the power consumption on laundry days is 1/3 of what it used to be.

what is the exact depth - it gives "assembled" depth 27 and item depth 29. I need a machine that is 27 inches deep

Asked by: Evon
Hi Evon, the depth of the top load washer is 27". Item depth refers to the depth of the box that the washer will come in. Thank you for your question.
