Features
  • Xtra Roll Action Plus Agitator
  • Brings the laundry to the bottom of the wash basket where cleaning takes place. It can effectively roll over and clean twice the average load size.
  • Fabric Sense Wash System
  • Once you select a cycle and fabric type, the washer automatically matches it to the optimal wash temperature, cycle time and agitation speed for customized care and cleaning.
  • Energy Star Qualified
  • Meets government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.
  • Care Control Temperature Management
  • Adjusts the cold and hot water inlets to reach temperatures that are warm enough to dissolve detergents. Water is kept from overheating to help reduce shrinking and/or color bleeding.
  • Quiet Spin Technology
  • Quiet Spin technology offers a unique suspension system that senses and adapts to each load, making upper-floor installation possible.
  • Cycle Status Bar
  • The cycle status bar shows you which portion of the cycle the washer is operating, including Wash, Rinse, Spin, Done and Lid lock.
  • 700 RPM Maximum Spin Speed
  • Faster spin speeds in the washer remove more moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.
  • Delicate Cycle
  • A reduced agitation speed and low spin speed provide gentle fabric care without sacrificing cleaning performance. For models with a one speed motor, the wash cycle uses alternating periods of agitation and soak to simulate hand washing your clothes.
  • Quick Wash Cycle
  • Clean small, lightly soiled loads in less time. Plus, increased spin speeds extract more water for faster dry times.
  • On/Off Fabric Softener Knob
  • Use this knob to add the proper amount of water needed when using fabric softener. When not selected, washer conserves the extra water.
  • Fabric Softener Dispenser
  • Add fabric softener when you load your clothes and it is automatically diluted and dispensed at the right time during the cycle! This saves time and eliminates multiple trips to the washer!
  • 12 Automatic Cycles
  • Heavy Duty Cycle
  • Normal Cycle
  • Casual Cycle
  • Soak Cycle
  • On/Off Extra Rinse Option
  • Bleach Dispenser
  • 5 Selectable Water Temperatures

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 161 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CLEANS BETTER THAN PREVIOUS WHIRLPOOL AND USES FAR LESS DETE THE COMPLETE CYCLE TIME OF THIS MACHINE TAKES (1) HOUR, NO MATTER WHAT SETTING THAT I CHOOSE. THE OLD WHIRLPOOL TOOK ONLY (35) MINUTES. IT HOWEVER USES FAR LESS DETERGENT AND IT APPEARS TO CLEAN CLOTHES BETTER THAN THE OLD MACHINE. I WISH I HAD BOUGHT A MODEL THAT LETS ME CHOOSE THE WATER LEVEL FOR EACH LOAD. THIS MACHINE DOES ITS OWN WATER LEVEL SELECTING. 12/28/12
Rated 3 out of 5 by If it quacks like a duck... I selected this machine based on the features that I wanted..porcelain wash tub, extra rinse cycle, soak cycle, energy efficient, but still with an agitator. It has met my expectations in all those areas. It is easy to use, seems sturdy, and gets the clothes clean A few things make me hesitate to recommend it...The spin cycle is quiet. However, it makes sounds like a duck quacking during many parts of the wash cycle. The pump gave out within the first week after delivery and had to be replaced. I hoped the quacking would go away when the pump got replaced..but it still quacks. Most of the time it isn't loud enough to be annoying, but if someone leaves the laundry room door open, it can be heard quacking away. 12/19/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beat washer we have ever owned Bought this one instead of a front loader and have been really pleased. Takes a little longer to wash but the trade off is less water used. Lot quieter than my old one. 12/13/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer! I replaced a top-of-the-line canyon-capacity HE washer that constantly had issues with electronic panels. After consulting 3 repairmen, they all agreed that the "mechanical" models required the fewest repairs. This model is noisier than some (different set of noises) but washes much better than my previous model. The tub is smaller, but so is my family at this point. Great washer...I'd buy it again in a heartbeat! 12/8/12
