Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 805 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for families! We are a family of 5 so I wanted a large tub size to do extra large loads (like the kind I did in the triple size washer at the Laundromat). This machine does A LOT in one load and fits an adult sleeping bag very comfortably. In one load I fit 4 large (decorative) sofa cushions and was still able to put in some towels & clothes and still the tub was not filled to capacity! I love the bleach & softener dispensers. The cycle length times are quite long, I don't think any are under 44mins, but I get the less agitation therefore longer cycle thing. The clothes are not treated harshly at all, its all about gentle, longer washing time which I did worry about getting the clothes clean, but they do come out clean and I consider myself somewhat of a clean freak! I will say though in terms of the cycle times if you dry a load whilst washing a load it works out because drying takes about 50mins anyway.This fits my need for big basin to do less loads and therefore less time doing laundry!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves Clothes Dirty This washer seems to clean well EXCEPT for the fact that it leaves gray/white dust on the clothes after the cycle ends. Sometimes its out of control how much is left behind. You need a lint roller or a brush to get it off afterward. A blanket may be left completely covered in this stuff and you have to throw it back in a few times on the rinse cycle to help out. Using an extra rinse doesn't do the trick. Having to re-wash things is not economical either. If you leave the lid closed, a moldy mildew smell builds quickly, as does mold itself. You must use the Affresh cleaning tablets once or twice a month. It is fairly quiet which is nice. As someone else said it does wring the clothes very tightly and wrinkles them but gets a lot of water out. After a cycle in the drier they seem ok. In short, don't buy this - its a headache. The machine has also leaked onto the floor already and had to have a part replaced (under 1 year old). Attached is a photo of a sweatshirt hood with the dust on it. This is pretty typical. Although its been less common lately, blankets have been covered in this and dark clothes can often have this all over them or in big patches. Very irritating. Of course, whirlpool had nothing helpful to say. October 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I bought this exact model, it has caused me a lot of stress. The first mishap was when the clear top separated from the lid, evidently because, the lid arrived broken from the manufacturer and now the entire lid has completely separated itself from the top of the machine. I thought I could live with that since it was at least $200.00 to replace a year old lid! What? Upon further scrutiny, I noticed the tub and light fixture (is completely rusted out, it's so bad I have pictures) and has been leaving RUST spots on my clothes....and that's if it isn't dripping bleach on my dark laundry!!! This machine twists laundry into the biggest mess....when it's taking a break from actual clothing destruction. It doesn't use enough water to wash the laundry; much less, rinse the laundry. I live for the day until I can AFFORD to throw this machine to the curb. This has been the longest 2 years of my life. Do NOT buy this machine. November 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love our new washer Gets clothes really clean, love all the features. Fits perfectly in our spot. I was a little surprised how long it take for a large load (50+ minutes). March 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wouldn't Buy It Again No matter how little soap I used, the dark clothes ended up with white spots. It also wrings the clothes so tightly you can't hope to damp hang them to dry. You MUST put them in the dryer. IT also is loud and makes funny noises. I called Whirlpool and they were no help.
