Horrible wash machine!!!!
We like others reviewing bought a new home and this was the washer that came with our home. The first few months it worked fine but for the last few months it has torn holes in my shirts almost every single load. I have probably thrown away 300 dollars worth of clothing and counting over the last few weeks. We have tried everything to fix the issue and it keeps happening. I even tried washing everything in delicate and still same issue with holes in my clothing. So so disappointed that one year later we have to get a new wash machine. Zero help from customer service tried calling and stay on hold for so long and can never speak with anyone and sent email no response. So so disappointing.

Good washer at a good price. I most often use the deep water setting. I have hard water and use extra soap and need the water to clean and rinse the clothes. I will use auto setting on small loads, but always do the deep water rinse. i don't fill the washer completely to the rim (see picture) because based on the diagram, even with the deep water rinse it doesn't fill that high. Despite not filling it to the top, I still can fit more clothes in there thanks to no beater bar. All of the clothes are clean and I have 2 small children at home. Also, I like the options for loads. The options have covered all of my needs so far. contents of washer load in picture, in case you are gauging how much it will hold: 4 pairs of mens jeans 3 boys jeans (10/12) 2 mens shirts

Better than I expected based on bad reviews.
Although I just started using this washer/dryer set, I have no legitimate complaints...Yet! Unfortunately you cant rinse your detergent cap. I add all my detergent, beads, oxi clean, etc., and then start the wash without clothes. I let it fill for about 3 mins so I can slosh the water around to dilute the detergent before I pile my clothes in. I fill the washer almost to the top with clothes and once it's done filling, the water will NOT be all the way to the top. The clothes are still completely submerged (see photos). The cycle I use is the deep water wash with soak....that takes roughly an hour. This machine is not that loud....it does however make much quieter MRI machine type sounds, but nothing crazy. After the cycle, my clothes were not all twisted and mangled tightly, and they smelled great! The spin cycle had my clothes pretty dry, too. I didnt notice any residue from soap, beads or the oxiclean. A definite adjustment from an old school washer though.

Efficient Design with Premium Features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Right sized washer for an apartment with large steel tub and 12 cycles for flexibility to choose the best wash for a load of clothes. Pleasantly surprised how efficiently it uses electricity and water, but still cleans well. Money saver, this washer will easily pay for itself over time!

The Whirlpool washer surprised me by its large capacity. I bought to replace my 2nd washer, used for carpets and dog blankets but my wife is constantly using it along with our other washer. Features are very easy to understand and operate. Loads come out very clean. I am very happy with my purchase from Home Depot!

This Whirlpool top load washing machine works better than the Samsung washing machine I previously had. And for half the price! I would definitely recommend! I especially like the impeller rather than the full size agitator. It was also delivered quickly and the gentlemen delivering it were super nice!
