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.

Love senses size of load

vic213 11/21/2019

I bought this when I downsized, would like a smaller set but was told they cost more. Because they take up the whole room.

Does not clean

RobertE100 11/13/2019

aI bought this a year and a half ago for a rental property. I finally had an occasion to wash my own laundry in it. The wash I did, did not clean. Stains that I am accustomed to being removed were not. I thought it was an anomaly so waited and did another wash a few weeks later. It did not clean either. I have never had a problem with stain removal. Whirlpool did send a service tech out to have a look at it. He said it was working as designed. I have watched an entire cycle trying to figure out how to make it work better. I have tried wetting clothes to make the load heavier so it adds more water. I am ready to junk it.

Caillie1 10/7/2019

I previously had a really souped up washer, with all kinds of bells and whistles. It was unbelievable loud, each cycle was incredibly long, and I hated it. With my Whirlpool, it is a job to do laundry again- almost :)

I bought this washer roughly two months ago and it has worked like a charm. While there is nothing too fancy about it, it does come with many features that ensure clothes are optimally clean. There is a world of difference with this washer and our previous one. For under $450, this was a great purchase!

A machine that actually cleans!

Mom likes CLEAN laundry 6/25/2019

Finally, a washing machine that actually FILLS the barrel with water and comes with an agitator that actually gets your clothes clean! Unfortunately it was a close out. This is my 5th washing machine in 30 years. I've tried them all. I've had all the bells and whistles. Top loaders with no agitator. Giant barrels that just sprinkle/dampen your clothes then shuffle them around in the barrel. It sounded like a jet liner taking off in my basement. Some smelly work out clothes had to be washed 3 times before I was able to get the smell out of the arm pits! How is this an energy saver when you have to wash certain items 3 times? The electric panel never gave you the option of a hot wash/hot rinse. It forced you to use cold to save energy. This was another reason why I had to wash clothes more then one time in order for them to smell clean. What a waste. I've had a front loader that didn't clean very well also. This barrel spun around sideways. It did allow more water into barrel, but no real agitator to rub cloths clean. The smell was awful when the rubber ring started wearing out. If you needed to add something mid cycle you could never open door. this machine was replaced before it even broke. I told the delivery men they could take it and still use it, as it wasn't broken. I just didn't like it. They didn't want it either. They said nobody wanted them and they were all going in the garbage. All these fancy electric panels with so many options to clean don't mean anything if you have to wash a load of laundry more then once. My daughter used my new machine for the first time and said, "mom, my clothes are actually feeling WET, before I put them in the dryer." Sometimes on these other energy saver machines that cost up to a thousand dollars, when we remove the clothes from the machine to put in the dryer, they don't even feel as though they had gotten wet? They're just slightly damp from the "sprinkle" of water that the "sensor" allowed to go into barrel to just dampen my clothes. I guess that's their idea of saving energy? Unfortunately, it doesn't clean your clothes. I was so tired of replacing machines that I was determined to find an old type washer, that I originally had 30 years ago, that was able to actually submerge my dirty laundry completely in HOT water, and actually agitate the laundry to help loosen smells and dirt. This new machine I purchased had no bells and whistles. The control panel was not electronic, BUT MY LAUNDRY ACTUALLY COMES OUT CLEAN! The close out price was $420! After tax and delivery it was a little over $500. Still a great buy. Why are they getting rid of the only machines that actually clean? If you are a new home owner buying your first machine, beware of energy savers. The reason they save energy is because the water doesn't get hot enough and they use much less of it. Just slightly dampening and sprinkling water on top of heavily soiled laundry, then having no agitator to rub clothes clean is NOT a washing machine, and does NOT save energy when you need to wash your laundry 2 or 3 times to get it clean! I'm sure by now you can understand my frustration with these new expensive "energy savers." Please bring back the old washing machines that used to really clean our clothes. I love my new machine. I hope I never will have to replace it, as it was a close out, and I may be forced to go back to the energy savers that do not clean.
