              We have been having issue with this washer leaving spots all over our clothes. We have tried changing detergent and everything. It is not a very good feeling not wanting to wash your good clothes in your new washer.

                  This is a very reliable product. The cleaning done by this machine is without equal. I am glad we purchased this product. It makes me embarrassed to know I waited so long to purchase a new unit.

                      I have only had the washer a few weeks but so far it has been great. The biggest thing is dealing with Whirpool , They really stand behind their products. I had purchased a Whirlpool dyer in the past bought the extended warrantee and when I thought I had a problem with it they came right out looked it over very good turned out to be my electric socket needed to be replaced . But a great company to deal with.

                          I am a little worried about how long the electronics will last. We have had the washer electronics "freeze" and it took 3 reboots to fix.

                            I have had this washer for a few months after having another Whirlpool for almost 10 years. This one has more options, a bigger drum, and the steam and tumble options that I like and use every load. I also like the extended lead time so the clothes are ready to move to the dryer when I get home from work. Overall, very satisfied so far with this product.

                              The design of this machine is impressive. It is beautiful to behold, the blue lights are gorgeous, and the musical tones of the buttons are lovely. The machine fails though to do the basic job of a washing machine. The detergent cup: this cup is used to add powder or liquid detergent, softener and bleach. the selector for powder or liquid detergent is awkward, but one can live with it. Never had a problem with detergent dispensing. Softener on the other hand is a problem. Rarely does the machine dispense all the softener. The dispenser cups also remain filled with water even after the wash cycle is complete. This causes moisture to remain in the area and leads to mold. We have to clean this frequently. The inside: good capacity, nice stainless steel inside, I like that anything that makes it into the machine (coins, pins, etc.) makes its way under the gasket instead of in the tubes/lines. Washing performance: horrible. I cant figure out why, but the machine does not wash well. I have tried many different settings, only to always find uneven soap or water distribution and uneven cleaning results. a few times I have had some items not even washed or wet at all. there's something in the design that prevents the detergent and water and cleaning from reaching all clothes equally. The Normal wash cycle just doesn't wash. We have had to settle on a bizarre combination of settings to get our clothes acceptably clean. The spin cycle is impressive, and when clothes do wash, they spin very well and leave little moisture, saving time and energy with our dryer. the inside does get moldy very quickly, so always leave the door open, and NEVER leave a washed load in there for more than 30 minutes. I also wish there would be a rinse-only cycle. In short, this machine was largely designed by a marketing team or amateur engineers since the washing performance is so poor.

                                      Really like this washer... much better than the top load units we had before... Only issue is cloths falling on the floor when pulling out and transferring to dryer.
