      Surprisingly great

      I've had the washer about 2 weeks now and have picked up on some points of comparison to my previous LG WM8000HWA washer. 1) This Whirlpool is very capable in washing large loads. It is a 4.5 cu. ft. and compared to my old LG which was a 5.2 cu. ft. I was afraid the Whirlpool can't wash my large comforters or large loads of towels. I am pleasantly surprised that it is able to wash my load of 20+ full size bath towels easily. The queen sized comforter was not a challenge either. 2) I've read that this washer is noisy. Compared to my LG, I think it is a tie because yes, this machine seems a little noisier when pumping water; however, it is quieter during other phases of the cycle especially when tumbling and spinning. I sometimes forget that I even have it running. We have it installed on the main floor of our home next to my office. 3) The power button is very touchy. I had started the wash cycle already and accidentally brushed the power button and the entire machine powered off. I experimented with the child lock feature but it appears to only lock some of the wash parameters not the overly sensitive power button. 4) I had a problem with family members maxing out the HE detergents every wash, which I believe contributed to my old washer's mold problems. I really like the Load and Go feature, which can hold up to 12 loads of detergents. The system is smart enough to determine the amount of detergents to dispense so my family members no longer have to determine and overfill detergents. There is a light to indicate when detergent is low or empty. 5) The wash tub in my old LG and after inspecting the current line of LG washers have a seam that I suspect contributes to the tearing of some of my wife's blouses and other clothing. The Whirlpool's tub seam is suppressed and not exposed. I have not had any torn blouses to date using the Whirlpool.

      After my top load Samsung washer quit working after just 2 years, not covered by warranty. (don't let their 10 year warranty fool you) I wasn't buying another Samsung and I wanted to try a front load washer this time. I wasn't prepared to buy a new washer and dryer so soon so I couldn't afford the best of the best. I waited to review this after I've been using it for a while...I feel like it is the best of the best!! So far I haven't found anything I don't like, other than the buttons can be a little sensitive, I accidentally touched the front of the washer and the washer powered off. Not a huge deal. I ended up having to purchase the matching dryer from a different store since it was on back order at BB and I couldn't wait. I love it as much as the washer. I have washed and dried our king size bedding a few times with no problem. Love load & go, FanFresh and the drum light features. The wash and dry feature doesn't work great but that's not why I bought it. I think it's very quiet and everything comes out great. So so so much better than the top loader.

      I usually don't write comments but I guess I was compelled to write one this time as I understood how helpful they can be when you are out shopping and have so many options to choose from. Let me clarify that I am a genuine customer and not a paid blogger. I have had this washer for 1 month now and although that's not a lot of time but so far I haven't faced any issues, like many of you guys I wasn't sure about which washer to go for especially with so many options out there, however unlike cars I chose to put my trust with American engineering, design and quality. So far I have been pretty happy with the way the it's washing the clothes (after all that's the most important thing we buy a washer for). Certainly the chrome design looks great and the option to Load and go is amazing (very thoughtful, trust me you would love it). Menu is easy to understand, might take a while to understand it but self explanatory. Based on my research most people had complained about the issue of molding with the front loaders so as a precaution I keep the door open after every wash until the water dries up.

      Worth Every Penny

      My wife and I moved into a new house and needed a washer/dryer for our second floor. We liked the look of this washer with the LED lights and chrome tinted door. After 5 months of use, we are very pleased with it. It's not super loud and really does a great job washing our clothes, towels, and rugs. The fan fresh feature comes in handy when we forget to switch loads. My favorite feature is the detergent bin. I like being able to load up the bin and not have to refill it for several loads. I just have to add fabric softener each load which is easy. Funny thing is, I told my wife before we bought this washer that "why don't companies come out with a washer that you can load a bunch of detergent into so that you don't have to add some each load". Well, they did it and we got it. Love it. One thing people don't know is that after you're done washing, you need to leave the door semi open so that the inside can air out. You don't want mold to grow. We bought the matching model dryer and it's fantastic. Both are well worth the money. We bought each during a big sale so we saved a ton. FYI, you can put money down to hold sale prices. So if you're months away from being able to purchase the item, just put a down payment on the washer/dryer to hold the sale price.

      Problem not with product but with seller

      I went to Best Buy to purchase a new washer and dryer. From my research I thought I would only be able to purchase a top loading washer due to the size of my laundry closet. I came with all of the dimensions and the salesman told me that I was wrong, I could fit a front loading washer and dryer in my closet, including the bases which would "just fit" under my overhead cabinets. I explained that I have folding doors on this closet but again was assured that they would fit and I would be able to close the doors. So, I purchased a front loading washer and dryer with bases. I waited 3 weeks for delivery and the day was finally here for my new set to arrive. My old washer and dryer are on their last legs and I was relieved I would be able to finally get my laundry done quickly and painlessly. Then the two from the Geek Squad came in and measured to be absolutely sure the units would fit. They informed me that (much like the research I had done that the salesman told me was incorrect) the units are 2" too deep for the doors to close. I was upset but thought I could live with putting up a curtain to make up for the door not being on the closet. Then he measured the height and found that with the pedestals the height was 3/4" TOO HIGH! Rather than go through the work of finding units elsewhere and waiting to have them delivered, I ended up accepting the units without the pedestals. I emailed the company that same day to tell them of the problem and ask them to get in touch with me to work this out. 1 week later and I've heard nothing. I'll never buy another appliance from Best Buy (Pacific Sales). As for the actual washer it is just fine. Not as quiet as I had hoped but without a closet door to close, the noise is understandable.

      I got this washer because my Samsung washer blew up so I had to us my warrenty to buy it. The first washer they try to give me the delivery team was mean and they made my daughter and mother in law very uncomfortable. They where very mean to them and told them they don't speak English at all. Then they told them it was broken. Then the second time they came to my house early. Even after I told them that no one will there until after 5:30pm. Then they told me I have to reschedule again. I called up someone from the management team and told me they will fix it but they didn't. The third time the manager from the delivery team told me all will go ok, but it didn't. They came early again and I told them no one is home you have to came at 5:30pm, the guys told me here will talk to the dispatch to send someone around that time. I got home and no one showed up so I called up the delivery company and I was talking to a lady and at first she was nice they she told me that they came by at 4:00pm and no one was there. I told her that no one was going to be there until 5:30pm. 5yen she told that there nothing she can do, it is too late then I told if I can speak to a manger she told that the manger was busy and that I can't talk to her at all. So asked what can I do she told to go to the store where I get the washer from and go get my money back because there is nothing she can do. So I went the store manager and told her everything so took care of everything for me and got my washer delivery to my house at 9:10pm. The store manger and delivery manger both told they where going to comp something for me because all the stuff I had to go through. I have gotten a email or a phone call at all so this is the last time I get anything from best buy that has to be delivered.

      Washer Mold Ruined All My Clothes

      Posted
      Anonymous

      After only two months of use, all clothes washed in this machine began smelling terrible. After removing the detergent container, I discovered this was due to excessive amounts of mold (see images). This is only what can be seen from the outside. I am terrified of what the rest of the inside of the washer looks like. This washer made all clothes dirtier than when they entered the mashing due to the mold and can the clothes no longer be worn due to the stench which even other washers which function perfectly cannot remove. Thousands of dollars worth of clothing now have a terrible stench need to be replaced. Whirlpool considers this "functioning as designed". I do not recommend anyone purchase this washer.

      Lasted Less then a Year

      I was excited about this machine because I had previously owned a Whirlpool Duet and it had been a great machine. However, after just three months of usage, this machine totally died. At this point I was not happy and wanted a new machine, but the Geek Squad came out and installed an entirely new control panel instead. It continued to work for several more months, but once again I started having serious problems. The machine would drain on certain cycles, but not on others. Once again a Geek Squad guy came out---and he determined that once again it was a control panel issue. At that point they were going to potentially yet again replace the control panel---but I appealed, and thankfully the wonderful Geek Squad guy got it approved for me to pick out a new machine. I am not sure how that is going to work yet, but meanwhile, I wanted others to know that this machine was totally unreliable for me. It has great reviews on here, but it was not the case for me. A machine that costs almost $1000 should last way longer than the 9 months it lasted me.
