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.

We bought our new washer not even a month ago and we've already had water leak out the front door 3 times. Other than that it runs wonderfully. I don't think it's loud like some of the other reviews, but I did have the leaks. Seems to be my luck with appliances.

Larger Loads Saves Me Time

Jim in WA 1/16/2017

I've had this Whirlpool washer for a month. It's drum capacity is larger than any other washer I've owned. Running larger loads reduces the number of loads I do each week. Between saving time with the larger washer, the dryer also handles larger loads. Between the two, my time in the laundry room is cut by at least a third.

Great Washer

Cliff Whidbey 11/10/2016

We've had the washer just under a month. I love how dry the clothes feel after the final spin cycle. It seems to help shorten the dry cycle. We don't have any trouble with washer vibration even though it spins up to 1200 RPM. It is a quiet, efficient machine. Two small gripes: the machine would benefit from an internal drum light and the specialty cycle buttons/lights are hard for me to see. I always have to get my glasses and sometimes a flashlight to check the settings.

Faulty

frustrated in Ohio 10/27/2016

I bought this over a month ago and could not use it until a week ago. The water regulator was off, washing everything in Hot Hot water. Parts could not be found because the washer was new...............hhmmm. I know that things happen but the delay in fixing those things is what I find unacceptable. I replaced my old whirlpool, which was still working, the dryer had broken and I wanted a matched set so I get a new washer too, and get one that doesn't work.

Loud

Janie 10/21/2016

This washer is incredibly loud. So loud that I was sure there was something wrong with it so I had whirlpool come out. He assured me that it was a "normal sound for a front load washer." I've used a lot of washers and none have come close to being this loud. It cleans well and I like everything else about the washer, but i rarely do laundry when the family is home because it is so loud and can be heard through the whole house. Bummed. It was a replacement through our home warranty so we are unable to return it.

Excellent capacity

Michael 9/14/2016

After moving from apartment to apartment, we finally settled down in a house and a bought a washer/dryer set to go along with it. I can't believe how much of a difference having a quality washer makes. Not only is the drum gigantic, but it's both quieter and more efficient than any other washer I've used in the past. I'm quite pleased with our purchase and though I haven't used it much yet, words can't describe how satisfied I am to be able to properly wash and dry a comforter without going to a laundromat. My only complaint is that the machine likes to "talk back" with a bunch of beeps and chimes, but those can all be disabled.

Dissatisified user 9/12/2016

We purchased all new appliances for a new home constuction, including a front load Whirlpool washer. After about 1 year, we experienced issues that the machine would not start the wash cycle and the door would not reopen. The unit was repaired but the same issues are happening again 4 months later. Repairs are frustrating for both us and the repairmen and take weeks to resolve between ordering parts, rescheduling home visit, ordering different parts, rescheduling home visit, etc. Currently, it has been over a month and we are still waiting resolution. This is the third unit we have purchased. The other units have been fine, one was sold with the house after being used for 10 years and another is still is light use at a vacation home. We question the quality and design standards at Whirlpool today. To us, they are not the same as in the past. At this point, we face huge repair cost with possible/probable repeat issues in the future. So we will just junk the unit and purchase another brand unit.
