      I really wanted to like it, but...


      Like the title says, I really wanted to like this washer. A couple of months back, we decided to "upgrade" to a newer, non-agitator washer with a big enough tub to clean some beddings. And since our old Whirlpool had lasted for close to two decades and still worked great, we had high hopes our new American-made machine. It's a beautiful machine with a big, stainless tub, and a modern, touch-screen interface. And unlike the Samsung that we also liked, it actually fit depth-wise into our hall laundry space. Right away, however, we noticed that it takes a long, long time to wash anything, even a small load, in our new “high-efficiency” washer. And then, loads never seem to come out all that clean unless they're run through a “deep water” cycle. Nor are they all that well spin-dried, even on the washer's highest setting. Consequently, our old dryer now has to run much longer. The next thing we discovered was that larger loads, such as jackets, blankets, or beddings, almost always end up out-of-balance, causing the washer to shut down. And unfortunately, that pretty much means re-starting with a short wash-cycle, which runs about twenty-minutes at a minimum. In some cases, it's taken three or four tries to make it all the way through a single, hard-to-balance item, and it always requires that only a single large item (such as a blanket) be washed one at one time. In fact, pretty much any load that approaches half-filling the tub will probably end up out-of-balance. The second big issue is water-hammer. In fact, it's the sound of our house pipes being repeatedly hammered into submission at this very moment that instigated this review. The method recommended for stopping this by a repair-person is to partially close the offending valve (cold water in our case). However, the result is inevitably an "LF" (low fill-rate) error-code appearing on the washer as it simply shuts down mid wash. Installing an anti water-hammer fitting seems in order. After two months of two or three loads per week, it's become apparent that our new washer has consumed a great deal more time, effort, and I suspect water than did our old washer. The glacially-slow wash cycles combined with a do-over rate of about 60% means quite literally multiple hours spent hovering over a fussy, delicate, and temperamental machine that threatens to explode our water pipes at any moment. And the repeated out-of-balance washes, which often need to be done with a deep-water setting initially, mean that a lot of extra water is going down the drain anyway. As much as I hate to admit it, I miss our old washer.

      .***********WARRANTY IS USELESS******* May 2018-I bought this washing machine 4 months back after carefully researching and reading all the "positive reviews", after 4 months, i started hearing lot of noise(really loud like that of a broken wheel) i called the customer service twice , both the times they came and told me i am overloading , the clothes have to be put properly and accused me that am not using the washer properly ,I belong to the generation where i have been using washing machine as a child, I recorded a video with clothes just 3 inch of height with less than 20 clothes. The machine still continues to make noise, It makes the noise after 40 minutes in the (colorlast cycle) , the service guy said that how it works ,it is loud when asked why it didn't occur first month he just said i don't know , it's fine and am not going to anything (am told if i call again there is $90 service fee), Whirlpool outsources the service to a local company and the local company do not want to "fix anything". This means If you have a issue with the washer then you are stuck WARRANTY IS USELESS.

      Large Capacity + Efficient

      We decided to purchase this washer after looking at all the reviews and feel decent about the decision. Appliances aren't made like they used to be, and we all have to deal with that so we bought the warranty. Pros: Large capacity so I can wash the comforters with no issues. That I really love! Not too loud except sometimes when it's fully loaded, but that's not too common in our household. Cons: Based on new design, you have to be careful when washing dark clothes, such as men's dress shirts or blouses. You need to make sure to pick the "delicates" cycle or else you will get white detergent stains all over. I read this in other reviews and couldn't believe it until it happened. It's just a matter of following the suggested wash settings, but I guess not as intuitive at first. Overall I would recommend and have been using it roughly 3 months with no issues.

      Great large washer

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      So far we’ve had the washer for a few weeks and love it. We recently bought a newer dryer which is larger and our last washer couldn’t wash loads to fill it. This one can and then some! If you’re on the shorter side you may have a little trouble reaching the bottom of the drum. The only issue we had was with a smaller load that included a small down throw and (user error) my better half didn’t evenly distribute and we got an error for being unbalanced since it senses the load for water level and spin. Happened only once and sure we won’t load like that again. I love all the cycle options. I would have rated 5 but I have to agree with the woman who posted about the pipes thumping while it stop and starts several times while filling. I do really like the pleasant on/ done noises it makes.

      I diligently researched washers before buying this model but it didn’t help. We’ve had it for a little over a year. It doesn’t wash clothes well, I suspect it has some to do with low water usage, ridiculously low water usage. Even on the deep water setting, we will have completely dry spots on clothes. But the biggest problem is the poor design of plastic lid and metal hinges. The hinges eventually start putting stress on the lid and start cracking the plastic. We now have to push the hinge/lid down and hold it until it locks in order for the machine to start washing. Look elsewhere for a washer but definitely get a metal lid, the plastic will break

      Re: great size, but a needs a few extras

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      I love the large capactiy of this washer. I can put my entire king size bedding (comforter too) and still have room. One critical feature it does NOT have is a solo spin cycle... so... if your towels are a little too damp, you have to rinse and spin (kind of defeats the purpose)-- You can't just spin to remove excess be sure to change the spin level before starting a load. The other thing is the "add garment" feature. I figured I could just open and throw in. No-- it pauses the cycle altogether and you have to hold the start button down again. You can only add the garment for the first 30 seconds- a minute, then the top locks. I am sure that is safest, but one of the reasons I picked this is becuase I thought I could just open thr lid anytime snd throw something in without any fuss.

      I LOVED this washer when I first purchased it. However, I just found out that the reason why it's flooded my laundry room (a few times in a few months now!!!) Is because it gets stuck on a time and STAYS WASHING FOR HOURS UNTIL SOMEONE STOPS IT OR UNTIL IT FLOODS!!!!! In order to stop it or get it "Unstuck" you need to turn it off and take out incredibly heavy drenched clothes that haven't been fully washed and try to reset the load which is AWFUL! I'll be contacting best buy to either get my money back or get a replacement. I'm SO disappointed as I've purchased several appliances through best buy and NEVER had an issue.

      Quiet and Efficient

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Read many reviews and was on the fence with this purchase. Remember reading a review suggesting to thoroughly read the manual and follow directions, which we did. Not thrilled with the Mixed setting, nor the no spin setting. However, I'm sure they do serve a purpose. Resorted back to separating delicates, had tried them on Mixed, and the clothes come out wrinkled, but are fine on Delicate. I don't understand when we wash on Cold water settings, why the clothes are warm when we pull them out of the washer. Still getting used to the washer, and these are minor issues. This washer is so QUIET, we love that!
