        Delivery issues but great machine
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It took many months to receive the washer and dryer. The dryer was damaged and was not accepted. We are still waiting for a replacement. The delivery service that "installed" the washer did not remove three of the four shipping bolts. My husband realized the problem after a few attempts to use the washer. The washer kept walking and was very loud. It damaged our newly painted wall. We are also stacking the machines no kit was included with the install.

          Horrible machine
          I hate this washing machine. The first one had to be replaced as it would shake and move several inches during the cycle. Repair people came out twice to try and fix it. I have a LG at my other home and it is so much easier use. This whirlpool is awful. The buttons are hard to press. The load and go won’t turn off, the wash & dry button won’t turn on. Horrible horrible machine.

                  Great washer but…
                  I recently purchased a WFW862HC washer which is fantastic. The only issue I have is that I do not use liquid detergent so I don’t use the bulk dispenser. There is an alarm that ring for several minutes while the machine is running, and I believe it is to signal the the bulk dispenser is empty. I know there is a way to disable the bulk dispenser for a single wash, but it would be helpful to disable that feature permanently since we use laundry sheets and not liquid detergent.

                    I think it's smarter than I am ...

                      Love the larger size.
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Have had this new size for a month makes washing so much easier. Think it will be a great machine. Just wish it was simpler to run. I have the stacking set. It makes it a bit high to reach and read controls. The only thing upsetting is it took 3 months to arrive
