affordable price

2 agree

The machine pretty much figures out the best factors for each load (wash temperature, cycle time and agitation speed) making washing clothes even easier.

2 agree

Cleans almost as well as a washer twice the price.

1 agrees

Water stays warm enough to dissolve detergent but cool enough not to make colours run.

1 agrees

Simple, no-frills design tends to make it more durable/reliable.

It tends to be very loud when changing cycles--especially to the spin cycle making it a bad choice for smaller homes/apartments.

5 agree

small capacity

4 agree

Doesn't have a fabric softener dispenser... Something that is pretty common in modern washers.

4 agree

Washing a full load takes quite a while for a modern washer.

very noisy washer. disappointed with the way it washes delicates and ladies tops. this is definitely NOT a delicate cycle. Clothes are stretched out and wrinkled. Only thing this washer is good for is towels, sheets, jeans. It is ruining my nice clothing. I will never buy a whirlpool washer again.
Too strong of agitation. Only one speed motor. I am looking at a Speed Queen washer with different speeds.
