Enjoy exceptional cleaning and efficiency with a washer that combines the best of both worlds. The Whirlpool 3.6 cu. ft. top load washer not only helps reduce shrinking and color bleeding with the Care Control temperature management system, but it also saves energy by using the right temperature for detergent. Try customizing cleaning with the Fabric Sense wash system. It makes sure you always have the right temperature, cycle time and agitation speed, while a smooth motion agitator takes care of bringing laundry to the bottom of the wash basket where cleaning takes place. Thanks to specially designed ridges, this model can even clean twice the average size load. Plus, this model is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by I'm not in love I made the bad decision to leave my 15-yr old Kenmore Washer at my previous residence when I moved. I loved that washer, which was made in a "golden age" of appliances that were high quality and looked good. In the past 5-7 years appliances have sharply declined in quality and value: new appliances break all the time. I wanted another old-school washer, and among the standard top-loaders Whirlpool is rated high. Pros: looks good, is relatively quiet, and get clothes clean using a normal wash cycle Cons: takes forever to fill with water, the delicate cycle is so delicate its basically useless (doesn't even agitate enough to distribute the detergent, and clothes are not clean when its finished); And you cannot soak your clothes: you can pause the cycle, but after about 7-8 minutes on pause, the washer drains all the water out and turns off, so you have to start over. If you can find a used but working washer over ten years old, buy it and keep it. Pay the money to get it repaired. These new machines are just inferior. April 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good basic machine that sounds annoying At a sale price, this washer is a very good value. It uses a traditional agitator and has a large capacity. The wash cycles are not excessively long. So far, it has been good at keeping loads balanced, and the high-speed spin gets a lot of water out of the clothes. There are only a few negatives: (1) it is rather loud during the wash agitating cycles, because by design the motor reverses back and forth to move the agitator with a throbbing sound; (2) you can only stop the cycle for soaking for 10 minutes before it starts over again (although I haven't tried unplugging the power cord during the soak as some have suggested); and (3) the energy efficient design keeps you from using completely hot or completely cold water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good - Happy with Purchase I reluctantly gave up my old washer due to too many repairs needed, but this new one is good. It does the job. The clothes come out clean, and I can control water levels, etc. which apparently you cannot do on all machines these days. I don't understand any negative reviews on this washer, as it does what it says it will do. I would recommend, especially at the sale price. Delivery of it, however, did not go well. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Price, Works well The washer has done a very nice job. Handles nice sized loads and is relatively quiet when running. April 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price Am happy to finally have my own washer machine once again. I am on a pension, so I looked for the most economical. I have used only Whirlpool in the past. I like the baby blue color panel. the only negative is its loudness but after a while, you are immune to it. April 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever! Purchased this washer a year or so ago. Same except the model number ends in XQ instead. I assume this is the newer version of it. This washer definitely falls under the "piece of junk category. I like the basic features ok since that's what I wanted, not a lot of bells and whistles I didn't need. It does an okay job for regular wash loads. HOWEVER, no matter how carefully I load the clothes to be even around all sides, it's gets completely unbalanced and starts the basket slamming against the side of the washer. You can even see it hitting from the outside. So I have to babysit it, stop it, wait for it to unlock, and constantly readjust the load. Stupid design. My last washer lasted 30 years with no problems until it died finally. So, if you're washing say, doll clothes, I guess it's okay. But don't even bother to wash sheets, a light blanket throw or, heaven forbid, beach towels! I spent this morning having to remove each sheet (it was only 2 sets) and spin dry them individually. I guess I'll have to go to the laundrymat if I ever want clean sheets again. I definitely would NOT purchase this washer again. April 29, 2015
