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.

Large capacity was key

KellyA 7/25/2019

Bought this and the dryer less than a month ago. The cost was more than I wanted to spend, but we needed a large capacity as I take care of my 89 year old mother in law and do numerous loads of laundry, including bedding daily. This has cut back on the amount of loads and time spent doing laundry. Since we've only had it a few short weeks I can I my say, so far so good. The washer is extremely quiet, but the dryer has a bit of a rattle. Ours are stacked.

Great Washer

EDK1954 7/5/2019

I've had this washer for a month and I wouldn't have anything else. I've had front loaders before, (Kenmore) and I love them. Just make sure to get the pedestals because it makes everything so much easier to load and unload...no stooping over!

Problem: weight distribution

TeacherLibrarian 7/4/2019

I bought this appliance to replace an eight year old "duet." The "duet" from 2011 was already in the townhome we purchased in 2016. That machine was going on its 3rd repair when we opted to replace rather than repair again because a previous repair had proved expensive (a dispenser motor). When I caved to the new machine, I thought it would solve the problem I had with the old one: sheets or a bathroom rug that bunched up and did not spin dry effectively leaving me to wring the items out in a sink. Well, this has already happened with the new machine although I have yet to investigate a fix, such as putting in a towel to balance the load. That this happens with a king size sheet, though, is disheartening. I feel stuck with another round of Whirlpool appliances that honestly I expect a better performance from, not to mention that when I did call for a repair on the Duet, the sanctioned company in my area is Diamond Factory which I have come to distrust...

Do not buy this washing machine

cb333 7/3/2019

We have had this washing machine for one month and plan to buy a new one. It does not wash towels unless every towel we own is in the machine.

Very, very quiet, even in the spin cycle.

brandysheltie 6/20/2019

Haven't had a month yet, but have washed loads of clothes. This is the 5.0 capacity and I love it! I washed three king size sheets and pillow cases in one load, and it performed beautifully. I wasn't sure I would like the load and go, but it is wonderfully convenient. Everything is coming out nice and clean, and I only use the Quick wash, the other cycles are just too long, and who wants to spend all day doing laundry?

King Size Comforter AND Sheets!

Amyjude 6/6/2019

I am so in love with this washer!!! I double sheet our beds and spent a ridiculous amount of time washing linens. We can wash a kind size comforter, duvet, sheets and a towel or two in a single load! Other things that are amazing: - I pour in an entire bottle of liquid detergent and never have to worry about under or over dosing - our laundry is much dryer when it is finished, meaning less time in the dryer - it appears to weigh the load because it automatically adjusts washing time based on the load size - it has all the options I could want, but I don't feel overwhelmed - it is BEAUTIFUL! My only regret. I wish I had opted for the Smart Washer (same model, but accessible through an app). Our laundry area is in the basement and clothes are on the third floor. It has this amazing refresh cycle if you've left clothes in for a bit too long. Refreshing on my app would make this the perfect experience - but I didn't consider that when choosing between models. Regardless, I couldn't be happier with the quality of this model. It does everything I want it to AND MORE!!!

OKAY FOR WHAT'S OUT THERE.

BdfLakeOswego 6/3/2019

I purchased 2 sets. I have always had Duets which Whirlpool discontinued so these machines were close to what I had. I do like the Duet features better and their look. It took awhile to get use to the hold 1-2-3 option for some of the features. One washer was very noisy and since I had another to compare with I had a stand! Anyway they replaced the "pump" which was not broken but it made the world of difference! All and all, I love Whirlpool. The washer and dryer are very good, once you get used to them! I did like the load and go feature up at the top however. That was more convenient then bending over! Also the load and go container? It is hard to see when you have reached the top as it has a grid on the top of it. After all is said and done...we are remodel a second residence and yes I will purchase these units again! The stars I gave were mostly 4's...because nothing is perfect!

Bought last 2 weeks. It is a good washer just a bit disappointed on the trim and fit quality. I think whirlpool try to cut cost. It makes Sansung or LG look much better from the glances

Nice Machine but Very Loud

janiihd 5/8/2019

I love the features on this machine but the manual of instructions is VERY confusing concerning the "Load and Go" feature. Also, when the machine is on spin cycle it sounds like someone is hitting a Gong! Weird!
