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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Excellent Washer

Submitted by The Chambers - 8/8/2017

We bought our new washer and dryer pair about a month ago. We have been very pleased with it! Even though nobody in the house other than my wife is allowed to start the machine, the whole family has noticed a HUGE difference in the cleanliness of our clothes. My wife likes the sound that lets her know when clothes are ready to be rotated. I enjoy saving money on the detergent, water and electricity.

The rubber seal failed

Submitted by B - 4/1/2017

I bought this washer 13 months ago. It has worked really well and been a great washer for our family of 5. UNTIL - last night after doing a clean washer cycle I noticed the floor was wet in front of the washer and opened the door to find a chunk of the rubber seal missing. We have always used the washing machine properly and have no idea what would have caused this. We have always used gentle detergent and have never put anything in the washer that could have caused this damage. It is really odd. I hope it can be repaired.

Nice washer, just wish it used more water.

Submitted by Mom of 5 - 3/18/2017

I've had this washer for almost a year now. I see this particular model has been discontinued. I bought it to replace my 10 year old Maytag Neptune front loader when it bit the dust. I was excited to save space with the stackable set. I gave this product 3 stars because, compared to my old washer it doesn't get the clothes as clean. I debated on giving it 4, because I think the main problem is, it's TOO energy efficient and just doesn't use quite enough water to get the job done. If it used about 1 to 1 1/2 gallons more water, I think it would make a huge difference. On my old Maytag, I almost always used the normal wash setting, which took about 45 minutes and the clothes came out clean and smelling fresh. Occasionally I would use the stain cycle, if it was something extremely dirty or greasy. With this new Whirlpool, the normal setting is also about 45 minutes but is really only good,for,clothes that aren't dirty at all. Like jeans and work clothes if you work in an office. Kids' clothes or anything that smells, forget it. You have to use the heavy duty cycle which takes about an hour and 18 minutes. So, I gave it 3 stars because compared to my old washer, it gets clothes less clean, in more time. Newer should be better, right? And the purpose of a washer is to clean the clothes. Now, that being said, the spin cycle is awesome. It gets the clothes so dry that they don't take very long to dry. My dryer always says it will take about 78 minutes. But it never does, maybe closer to 40, which is on par with my old Maytag. So for me, bottom line, I wish they would make these washers use just a little more water, as I believe it would save in the long run, from having to wash the same load twice to get them clean.

Excellent Choice So Far

Submitted by Dave - 2/8/2017

I have had this washer for 2 months now. I am an auto mechanic with really dirty, greasy uniforms. I am amazed at how clean this thing gets my uniforms. I am flabbergasted by how little water it uses. I can start a load of wash and get into the shower at the same time! I live in a mobile home and rain on the roof makes more noise than this washer. I just wanted something that would work to get my clothes clean without spending a fortune I have no need for 10,000 different settings and steam and all that stuff...being a single (again) middle aged male, I really would not know what to do with them if I had them. To the person fussing about the towels not being "Downy Soft", I can say I too had a similar issue. I found that if I run the "Extra Rinse" feature, this helps a bunch. Bottom line: Gets them VERY clean, does it quietly with very little water, and leaves money for my hobbies.

Problems with fabric softener dispensing

Submitted by Wendy - 1/26/2017

I bought this machine May 2015. I love the washer and the dryer. The washer worked great at first but towels are not soft at all. The Downy dispenses and no problems with it running thru dispenser but my towels are rough. Has anyone had this issue? I had the machine checked out and no problem with any of dispenser and hoses but towels and blankets are not Downy soft like I want.

Not impressed, cannot wash towels.

Submitted by Richard - 1/12/2017

In the first few months I was impressed but then as time went on it didn't spin out all of the water form the clothes and they started coming out heavier. Had a service tech out here 2x and the machine would not go into high speed spin. Told me I was mixing towels with regular clothes and that wouldn't work. Well, how come it worked in the beginning then? All I can say is I am glad I purchased extra insurance to last me until 2021. I use the machine a few times per week and take out the soap dispenser and let it dry completely and I leave the door open in between washes and the clothes still stink every so often, especially the bath towels. This machine is OK for regualr clothes but when it comes to towels it doesn't cut the mustard. The bottom line is I would not recommend this machine.

I invested in my new washer and dryer after my 17 year old washer began to sound like a B52 bomber! I couldn't be more pleased, my washer is faster, very quiet, economical and my clothes are cleaner. I'm thrilled as I was able to wash my summer duvet with no problem. I tend to use the "timed dry" setting on the dryer, very efficient, very little wrinkling. I am one happy woman!

8 months- now not rinsing clothes properly, clothes still we

Submitted by JavaandJazz - 11/21/2016

I've had this machine 8 months now and there are only 2 of us that use it 2-3 per week and I've noticed in the last 2-3 weeks the clothes have been coming out much wetter than normal. I looked in the guide under trouble shooting and I don't see anything that could be a problem. The drain hose has not moved deeper into the drain pipe, I use HE detergent, there are not clothes stuck to the side of the drum...etc. I'm going to call for a service request this afternoon. I have had sour smelling clothes and did use the afresh tablets with success to clean up the odor. I keep the door open in between loads but wonder why I still get the sour smelling clothes. I want to be impressed by this machine but not sure yet. Oh and one other thing, within the first week of using it I got an error code for no reason.

Whirpool Front Load Washing Machine Review

Submitted by Naras - 9/19/2016

Brought the package (Washer + Dryer) about a month ago. The Unit does the job practically. Supports both hot and cold water options (like that!). The capacity (4.2 Cu.Ft.) seems just right for our size of loads. The wash options are not complicated and it takes less than 30 seconds to figure out what setting needs to be used, each time. Cleans well. Marks and stains are off. Glad we decided to buy this machine.
