The Whirlpool WTW5500XW is a low-cost top load washer. This washer is equipped with Whirlpool's 6th Sense technology, which is geared toward energy savings (this washer is ENERGY STAR qualified). The H2Low wash system has an Auto Load Sensing feature, which automatically gauges the size of your load and works out the most efficient way to get the job done (saving you up to 30% on your energy bills). The Precision Dispense feature of the WTW5500XW pretreats stains by shooting a concentrated blast of detergent at your garments before the wash cycle begins. The 4.3 cubic foot capacity of this washer is enough to get a basket or two of laundry done all at once. This washer is a step down from the higher cost WTW5550XW in that it has only 9 automatic cycles as opposed to 11, and lacks the estimated time remaining display. There are model variations for the Whirlpool WTW5500XW top load washer.

Will not wash dirty clothes, for example after using stain remover and washing muddy jeans 3 times unsuccessfully I washed the jeans by hand. my washer is 3 years and 7 months old and it wont wash anymore, it just fills with water sits until the wash cycle time is over then drains but leaves my water dripping wet, then I have to use the drain and spin setting to get the rest of the water out. I called a repair man and he said not to waste my money trying to fix it they had many problems with this washer.

How long does a normal load run Does the machine viverate when spinning. Does the wash come out tangled. Does it leave lint on the dark clothes. Thank you
