Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 193 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good features works for years We had a washer like this for years. Large family, and caretaker for 3 elder parents. Works for long time.finally died after 11 yrs of hard work. 11/24/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product meets my laundry needs. I am very satisfied with my combination washer/electric dryer. It makes my laundry work much easier. It cleans and dries my clothes very well. I am pleased with this product despite the fact that I had to have service for it shortly after I purchased it last Spring. It really is a good investment. 10/28/11
Rated 2 out of 5 by Noisy and extremely small I've had this product for about 3 months. I needed a small set in order to fit into my apartment. It cleans well but is extremely noisy. It takes 8 loads in this washer/dryer to do 4 normal loads in a regularly sized washer/dryer. If you can possibly get something larger, do it! I also think it is extremely overpriced for the quality. 12/28/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff comes in small packages I just bought this stackable set to replace an antiquated Magic Chef set that died on me (over 20 years old). It is attractive, runs quietly, and does an amazing job with both washing and drying. I used to have to wait an hour for my clothes to dry. With this bad boy, 15 minutes! I love this thing! Way to go Whirlpool!! 12/6/12
