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.

Not great for homes with dogs

Karen La 6/11/2017

We have 5 dogs so everything we own is covered in dog fur. Unfortunately, everytime we wash, we have to lift the gasket to "mop up" the water that is pooled there because the dog hair blocks the teeny, tiny drains. It's just a bit of a pain. I would recommend the washer to friends who don't have dogs!

Disappointed

Jen 4/25/2017

I bought this washer excited to upgrade my 15+ year old washer. I like the front load and the space saving quality of stacking washer and dryer! But I have been disappointed- the machine makes way more noise when the pump is running than the old one I replaced and it doesn't drain well. I called whirlpool a couple of times but don't usually have time to sit on hold (hold times were 30+ minutes when I called), so I emailed them over a week ago for customer service and still haven't heard back. I am disappointed and frustrated.

Really clean, more expensive, probably worth it

Nick A 3/28/2017

More expensive than what I had originally been looking at. This is my first front loader and the Consumer Reports review swayed me. No quieter/noisier than my old top loader, but different noises. The one impression I have is that clothes seem to come out looking and smelling cleaner than those washed in the top loader. People mentioned front loaders had longer cycle times, but I think the cycle times on this machine have been perfectly reasonable. Whirlpool chat support was useless for a simple question, and registering the appliances online had errors in the process which was super annoying. If this and the matching dryer last a good long time without problems or repairs, I'd say it was worth the extra expense.

Even worse than our old machine

Hrivers 3/27/2017

We bought this machine to replace one that had gotten moldy..... WORST CHOICE EVER!! This one has even more places and spaces for mold to grow, and it has all kinds of problems... (Worst of which is the way it's made.. To many spaces for water to collect).. From the first wash it didn't spin the clothes enough, so we had to do an additional spin... We would have returned it immediately but the family got sick and no one was in any shape to do so... So we kept giving it a chance hoping it get better... Nope only worse... We're now trying to return it as more problems keep happening...It has been a few months so we're hoping we won't have an issue.. Bottom line... Don't buy it!! It doesn't even deserve a one star rating..

Sounds like a jet plane

Jamie 3/6/2017

Like the options but the buttons are very sensitive to touch, I don't like having to turn power off everytime I set and start a new cycle, and during the spin cycle it sounds like there's a jet plane in my house!!! I've been using dry laundry soap as recommended by salesman and the rinse cycle doesn't seem to rinse it enough. some dry soap is sometimes found on the window door. Also the spin cycle is so effective that the clothes stick to the top of the drum so. You really have to ensure you grab all your clothes when done.

My previous washer was 16 years old when the spinning mechanism failed, however I thought it was a pretty good washer. Well my new Whirlpool leaves NOTHING to be desired. It's efficient, quiet and I love it. Sometimes I think up things to wash just for the fun of using it. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to update theirs.

Whirlpool Washer

Brett 2/22/2017

So far I have been very happy with the wash machine. We have only had it for a little over a month and it is doing its job cleaning everything well at this point. I am always skeptical of any appliance since they have a tendency over time to weaken and fail so in a couple years I will revisit this site. But for now everything is as expected

I've had both washer and dryer now for about a month and we are a family of eight. They are great and we love the features. This is the first time we ever stack a washer and dryer. My only change would be an option when you stack them that both doors open in the same direction. It is awkward when changing loads, but manageable. Whirlpool needs to fix this. Otherwise we Love them so far.

Love This Washer!

Older Single Mom 2/9/2017

I'd been using Maytag for last 25 years, but left my set when I sold my house and moved. After researching with Consumer Reports I decided on this washer and couldn't be happier. The clothes come out cleaner, the capacity is larger, uses less water and the dry time is greatly reduced because of spin cycle speed. Also, I was nervous about vibration and noise because it is near our bedrooms, but it's very quiet with zero vibration. I am thrilled with my choice!

Great features, Sanitising mode, affresh mode, tumble fresh

Joseph Pacyk 1/26/2017

I bought this washer in August, 2016. It has features that were optional or available on higher cost models in the past. Ex Sanitising Cycle. One thing that bothers me is that the machine is VERY NOISY when filling. Loud clicking and buzzing/humming is bothersome. I would not reccommend this machine be located close to a family or quiet room.

Nice Washer!

Uncle Dave 1/24/2017

Bought this washer after reading some really good reviews about it's performance. I think this has great flexibility to clean and steam. The 'quick wash' is a great feature and cleans as well if not better than the longer normal cycle. Follow the instructions with 'Turbo' HE detergent and you won't be disappointed with soap left in your clothes. Just a note... it can be loud on it's spin cycle and the keyboard can be a little overly sensitive but definitely not a deal breaker! Lock the controls and problem solved. Bought as a pair with no regrets!

First time for a Front Load Washer

Tim 1/23/2017

This was the first front load washer that we've ever owned. The differences definitely require some getting used to. After realizing that the wash cycle requires much less water than we were used to with the top load washer (a lot less water is visible!!), we felt more at ease with the high efficiency aspect. Detergent and fabric softener are easily filled. Clothes are as clean as one should expect. We are still adjusting to the longer run cycles, some of which last longer than an hour. A rather loud humming noise is heard on several cycles, but we understand that this is part of the machine doing its work.

Do not like

Beach Lady 1/13/2017

I am completely dissatisfied with the washer. First of all, it is terribly loud! It sounds like an airplane is landing in our home. The inside of the washer is extremely small, which I guess I didn't inspect close enough when making the purchase. Finally, the spin cycle doesn't adequately work. The clothes are often still quite wet.
