  • Does clean well and more..........

    Aug 14, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, no trouble so far, usually quiet, most effective with my stacking suggestion.
    Cons: Wash baby clothes separately, with extra rinse.  Sound barrier for bottom.

    Summary: It is like going out on a date.  You need to find the right buttons to press in order to get the response you are looking for.  It is puzzling looking into the washer drum, but it is quite simple. I first put in the empty drum, ... read more

  • Whirlpool WTW4950XW Top Load Washer

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: I can't say there are pros to this machine, except it is quiet.
    Cons: Doesn't dilute detergent before detergents come in contact with clothes and stains and ruins clothes.

    Summary: HE detergent  is to be added to the washer before adding clothers.  The problem is that there is no where for the detergent to drain before adding clothes.  There is a slight slope with a hairline crevice where the detergent is supposed to ... read more

    Pros: Absolutely none
    Cons: This washer is totally unreliable!!

    Summary: My wife and I have owned Whirlpool washers for 40 years and have loved them. Our old one broke down, and Lowe's was recommended as a good vender with reasonable prices and a wide assortment of products. We liked the idea of an energy efficient ... read more

    Pros: Fast, quiet, cleans well
    Cons: Can't add fabric softener, must use Downy ball

    Summary: We bought this washer because our front loading GE died and we needed a new washer in a hurry.  We went to Lowe's because they were having a sale, and found this one.  I wanted a more high end washer, but our budget won out!    ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Wouldn't say there are any pros.
    Cons: Machine does not stand up to the Whirlpool name.

    Summary: I am so frustrated with this machine and Whirlpool. I purchased it because previous Whirlpool machines I owned stood up. I had them 15+ years before I needed a replacement. Granted I may have had to replace a belt but that to me was like maintenance. ... read more

    Pros: Does not use much water, and the water used will not clean clothes.
    Cons: Too many to list here

    Summary: I bought this washer to work with my solar ev, tag says 6 Amp but this unit needs 1400 watts to spin, when we got a better inverter and now able to wash, the clothes were not being cleaned, so we put less and less clothes, still the clothes did not come ... read more

    Pros: No pros
    Cons: Doesn't wash clothes very well.

  • Not a machine I would ever recommend.

    Pros: None, I would not recommend this machine to anyone.
    Cons: Cleans poorly. Major mechanical issues at 9 months. Hard to stop or reset.

    Summary: I do not like this machine at all. It doesn't clean well and after 9 months of ownership, we've already had major mechanical problems with it. High efficiency/low water is fine if clothes get clean but that certainly is not the case with this machine. ... read more
