Rated 2 out of 5 by from Large tub This machine is a Love/ Hate relationship. It has a large tub (Love That) but it uses Very Little water to wash the clothes (Hate that)! There are times when some of the clothes do not get wet! Even when you request Deep Water you don’t get deep water. I’ve taken to adding additional water to the tub manually to get sufficient water to wash the clothes. The machine is Very Noisy! When I first used it I thought something was wrong. After reading the Instructions I saw that a noisy machine was Normal. Knowing what I now know, I would have never purchased this machine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and understand new technology This machine is EXCELLENT! It features all of the latest tech changes but is easy to use. It allows users to make changes or add to wash loads without difficulty. This will be our machine of choice for all of our vacation homes that we operate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't get the clothes as clean as I'd like Sometimes it doesn't get the clothes as clean as I'd like. It also doesn't rinse all the soap out of certain pairs of my pants. I would also like me to have more control over water levels but that is the automation. Overall I am happy enough with this because it seems to be about the same as all the others that are out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use We bought the washer almost three years ago and have been very happy with it's ease of use and overall performance. The large capacity handles heavy blankets and bedspreads very well. Suggest using low spin, however, as high spin on these heavy items may cause the tub to go off balance. Have always found Whirlpool appliances to be dependable and well made. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sleek look/efficient. I think it is an awesome appliance. Can handle a very large washload, clothes come out nice and clean. Aside from some reviews I read before purchasing it did not raise my utility bills. Overall I am very satisfied and would recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it I was skeptical at first, but this washer is better than my previous 2 front loaders. I’m short, but I have no problem getting the clothes out. I’m sure that they’ve never been cleaner or fresher. Totally would recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Measure Your Space

Width (side-to-side):

Add 1" to each side for air circulation.

Height (top-to-bottom):

For top-loading units, add at least 20" for door clearance.

Depth (back-to-front):

Add at least 6" to depth for door clearance, dryer vents and hookups.

Installation Space:

Requirements for new washer and dryer install: level floor with no more than 1" slope, location supporting a dryer exhaust system and hot and cold water lines within 3' of washer hookups.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that new laundry pair must pass through.

Choose Front-Load or Top-Load

Front-Load
  • Great washer performance
  • Uses less water than traditional top loaders
  • Safe for delicate fabrics or bulky items
  • Greater capacity than most top-load models
  • Units can be arranged side-by-side or stacked atop each other
Top-Load
  • Offer good value, range of sizes, feature and prices
  • Units come in a range of capacities
  • Can only be arranged side-by-side

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Electrical

Confirm that electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new washer and dryer. You will need:

  • A grounded electrical outlet within 4' of the rear of both machines (no extension cord or adapter).
  • A separately designated 30 amp circuit

Set water heater to 120°F for washer.

Gas

Your home should have:

  • A CST internationally approved gas supply line
  • A shut-off valve
Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require a gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >

Is Your Dryer Connection Gas or Electric?

There are two dryer types — gas and electric. Similar models look and perform the same, but differ in how they’re set up. Your decision between the two depends on where you will connect your new dryer:

  • Gas: needs an approved gas line with shut-off valve
  • Electric: needs a three-prong outlet with 30 amp circuit

Washer Maintenance Guide

Because all clothes washers have the potential to accumulate some amount of mildew, bacteria and odor after a period of use, we recommend that you perform the following simple routine maintenance:

  • Always follow the instructions in the use and care guide for your washing machine.
  • Always leave the washer door or lid open between uses to help dry out the washer and prevent the buildup of odor-causing residue.
  • Promptly remove laundry after the wash cycle has completed to avoid odor and rusting of metal objects on garments. Wet fabric left in a closed space is particularly conducive to the development of odor.
  • Use only the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent container. If your washer is a high-efficiency machine, use only HE detergent, not regular detergent.
  • Choose the warmest wash water temperature that is safe for the fabrics you are washing. Use of warm or hot water washers sometimes (not exclusively cold water washes) does a better job of controlling the rate at which soils and detergent accumulate.
  • Regularly clean your washing machine. If specific cleaning instructions are not included in your use and care guide, it is a good practice to run an empty cycle (without laundry) once a month using hot water and liquid chlorine bleach or a commercially available washing machine cleaner, such as Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of mildew, bacteria and odors in washing machines, including the following:

  • Not all of the water immediately evaporates after a load is complete.
  • Washing machines generally are kept in somewhat closed and damp environments, such as laundry rooms and basements.
  • The laundry that is put into washing machines has a wide variety of organic materials.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines use less water and are more tightly sealed when the door or lid is closed.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines are designed for use with specially formulated, low-sudsing high-efficiency ("HE") detergent. Regular detergent may cause excessive suds in high-efficiency machines, and excessive suds can leave a soap film that is conducive to the development of mildew, bacteria and odor.
  • Over time, laundry habits have changed, including the use of less bleach, more fabric softener and more frequent cold water washes. These habits may increase the rate at which detergent and soil residue builds up inside the washer, which in turn may result in undesirable odor.
