Paint on lid rusts
Lid rusted in about 14 months of light use. Replacement lid $259. 00 Service call $109.00 I was told that lid was on back order Due to this problem. Seems to me a recall is needed

No Thank You
Ordered washer and dryer. Delivered on 10 Mar 21. Called for return pick-up for the washer later that afternoon (two week delay for pick-up). Dryer performed magnificently. Washer was unable to clean my Levis jeans even with all DEEP settings. The clothes hardly move at all in the tub and half of them are not even fully immersed in water. Water fill is ridiculious. It alternates from hot to cold making a thump in between changing from hot to cold. Water was not warm either. That load took 90 minutes, approx. 20 minutes of those were adding water. Unacceptable. I work in the construction field and most of my clothing is cotton based and get dirty (for real). I have included a photo of a pair of Levis I washed today (one more chance) that I wore yesterday while working on my lawn. There is no way my retired Roper washer would have put out a finished product such as this. I will add that I took this wet pair of Levis to my sister and washed it again in her LG HE model washer. I did dry them because I just threw the towel in and accepted that this pair now has a stain in both knees. How will this machine clean my Carhart coveralls? Probably wont. I am now purchasing a Speed Queen Model TC5003WN since this is the only new washer that even comes close to what my Roper could do. It is on back order because many are realizing that this new HE design is insufficient for many of us out here. They want it too. I could share much more but choose not too. Thank You anyway Whirlpool. Good luck with this. I miss my Roper.

I replaced my 23 year old whirlpool with this one. Things are much improved. For water level and rinse options I've only used the auto feature. My grandchildren have sincitive skin, so the auto setting feature works. Choosing manually the settings for water temp and soil level are the only choices needed before pressing the start button. Clothes have always come out clean. The only improvement I could recommend is a completion buzzer like the dryer, still I would highly recommend this washer.

Works well but damages clothing
I’ve had this washer for a while and it does a good job cleaning my clothes. However, anytime I wash in a setting other than delicate it damages my clothing. Today I noticed three different shirts were damaged after being washed on “whites with soak. My old machine had a hand wash cycle and I wish this unit did also. I purchased this one because it had an agitator and late locking function. But considering I am limited to washing most clothing on delicate to avoid damage, I would not recommend this model.

Great washer
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this Whirlpool washer for my new TN condo. Works like a champ. Bought the matching dryer also.

Great compliment!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased this pair 6 months ago and could not be any happier! The units are quiet and have all the features and functions that make life so much easier! Very efficient energy savers. They are so quiet behind my bi-fold doors at first I did not believe they were running. Technology within these units is amazing!

Satisfied
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like: Autosense feature for determining water level. Large barrel. Top loading so I don't have to bend over. Price. Dislike: Water has been dripping inside even when not in use. Water stops running when you open the lid. I like to rinse my detergent cap off in the running water but can't now.
