Dual Action Spiral Agitator

Take on your toughest loads. The traditional dual action spiral agitator provides the wash action and cleaning performance to give your clothes the right clean.

White Porcelain Tub This wash basket is designed with smooth porcelain to help prevent even the most delicate fabric from snagging.

Add-a-Garment Don't worry if you left a few of your items behind. Extra time before the spin cycle starts lets you toss in any missed or forgotten items.

3.5 Cu. Ft. Capacity No need to go to the laundromat to wash bulky items. Get the extra space you need with this 3.5 cu. ft. capacity washer.

Quick Wash Cycle Save time with the Quick Wash cycle that's designed to clean small, lightly soiled loads in 30 minutes.

Bulky/Sheets Cycle The Bulky/Sheets cycle takes care of bedding as well as those bulky winter jackets. The washer fills with enough water to wet down the load before the wash cycle begins, then uses a higher water level than other cycles.

Auto Sensing Option Get a thorough clean with the right amount of water. This option engages the agitator, then automatically senses the load size to determine if additional water is needed.

Deep Water Wash Option Get more water to help break down loose soils. This option fills your washer to the maximum water level so heavily soiled clothes get an optimal clean.

Cold Wash Keep darks and brights cared for in the washer. Cold water, high spin speeds and additional wash action gently lifts stains while caring for fabrics.

Casual Cycle Care for loads of casual clothes, as well as no-iron fabrics like sport shirts and linens.

Delicates Cycle Clean fine washables. An intermittent wash action, cool water and slow spin cleans your delicates to provide everything you'd expect from gentle fabric care.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the U.S.A. Whirlpool® top load washers are built with American Pride and designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Whirlpool to load washer

nonna6 10/10/2017

I am obsessed with laundry. My washer must be just perfect for me. My new Whirlpool is exactly what I needed. I had a front loading machine for 12 yrs. It finally gave up, I am completely satisfied with my new top loader. Thanks to Appliances and More in Baker City, Oregon I was able to find just what I needed.

Brittany 10/10/2017

We've had the washer for a month and it goes halfway through the cycle and then back to wash and leaves the clothes soaking wet. We will be consulting with Lowes this week about it.

I got my washer about 3 weeks ago and the next day my husband killed a deer . There was blood on his pants and I thought it wouldn't come out ,but it did. I was surprised. I love my new washer. I had my last whirlpool washer for 29 years.

Good washer

Informed consumer 10/4/2017

I have been doing laundry for 45 years. I think I know a little something about getting clothes clean. I have only had this washer 2 weeks but so far so good. The 2 things I don't like is lack of control over water level and the lid lock. But I will say this. At least this washer puts ENOUGH water in the tub to clean clothes. I bought a Maytag before this one and took it back because you can't get clothes clean in 3 inches of water. I also suspect so little water would end up damaging clothes due to abrasion. And the deep water option on that Maytag wasted water because you don't need that much water to wash most loads. I understand the need to conserve water but I think the industry is on the wrong track. Based on the many, many reviews I read, a lot of people agree with me. I am very computer oriented but could not find a computerized machine that accomplished the task at hand...getting clothes clean without tearing them up. So I went back to a more traditional machine that does what you buy a washing machine for. I will pass on to perspective buyers a tip about the noise factor. Some of the noise I encountered is coming from the drain hose rattling against the back of the machine during the spin cycle. Some of the noise I believe has to do with the new "sensing feature" which like other reviews state this machine appears to have 2 water levels no matter what cycle you choose. I am concerned about the reliability of these new machines and am depending on Whirlpool's representation for duribility. I also bought Lowe's 5 year extended warranty just in case. HEADS UP top load washer buyers: The amount of water they can use goes DOWN in January 2018 due to goverment regulation.

Nancy 10/3/2017

We have used whirlpool appliances in our home for over 40 years. We purchased a different brand of washer 18 months ago, it was very noisy and took forever to do a load of clothes. It broke a couple of months ago and the repairs were not going to be covered so we tossed it out and purchased another whirlpool and we love It! Learned our lesson, it's whirlpool for us all the way.

I like that it is quiet, but it is so quiet, I cannot tell the difference between light clean and heavy clean. And I can't check because of the automatic shut-off in all modes. A few presets on water levels would have been nice.

spin cycle when load unbalanced

Washaway 9/21/2017

The wash machine does a good job unless you have bulky items like large bath towels or bedding. Then if load is unbalanced when spin cycle starts the machine will not spin to completion (good because it avoids chance to damage machine) but I have not been able to interrupt spin cycle to get door to unlock so I can move contents around to balance and resume the spin cycle. This is not a good design feature since I have had to start wash cycle all over again. So much for effiency with overprotective safety feature and no work around that I am aware of.
