Whirlpool washers set the standard in the laundry room! We build them with innovative features like the Gentle Wash System that uses step-down agitation speeds to maximize cleaning during the beginning of the wash and gentleness at the end.

Super Surgilator Agitator. The Surgilator Agitator creates a continuous rollover action that provides a thorough cleaning of the wash load.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 197 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by goodbuy this product has a overall good performance except for dryier. It takes tooo long to dry even the lightest clothes, I hAVE ALMOST ALL MY CLOTHES WASHED before the first one is dryed. 3/26/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprising value for very good utility After two months, we are pleased. Had been tracking the European 24" stacked for several years expecting failure of equipment replaced and although prices have declined they still were $400-$600 more expensive. They still have very mixed reviews although not enough to support a decision based on reviews. AJ reviewers seem to tilt toward the angry although reliability, spin stability, warranty cause this Consumer Report type mechanical engineer concern. This low cost Whirlpool stacked uni-body has impressed! Quiet, effective agitation, reasonable spin-out for top loading washer, and surprising capable of decent loads for a 2 adult tiny old brownstone. Drying has excellent lint filter with good flowthru. Adequate controls (analog) for my washer woman. Happy camper, check back in two years! 10/24/12
Rated 3 out of 5 no power cord? this item was delivered without a power cord which makes it inoperable 6/6/13
Rated 5 out of 5 Hidden gem I purchased the unit because of installation size restrictions. When it arrived I thought the washer capacity would be too small. It turned out to be perfect. It will wash a full size sheet set without any problems. Dryer is fantastic. This is an ideal unit for a 2 bedroom college rental unit as they do separate smaller loads therefore this allows for less water usage and conserving energy. I would highly recommend for tight areas. 8/15/13
