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.

Reliable Product

10/1/2017

I bought this whirlpool washer to replace one I had previously. The other one lasted seventeen years. It could have been repaired and kept going but I chose to replace it with a more up to date washer. I believe in whirlpool products and that is all I use. Have not failed yet.

Unhappy

9/16/2017

Washer is noisy and makes a lot of clunking sounds. It does not have an option to add fabric softener before starting the load. Inconvenient to have to babysit a load and put it in at the required time. A lot of times, I'll open the lid during the wash cycle just because I feel like it doesn't put enough water in, and the clothes on top are still dry. The clothes come out alot of times with something on them, like fabric softener or soap, and have to be rewashed. If I could take it back for a different type of washer, I would

Disappointed

9/5/2017

I have only had this washing machine since Aug. 19, and since then my clothes have come out with suds on them, some of them dry from just being washed and it takes three times as long to dry in my dryer. I have talked with two other people that have this same machine and they are having the same issues. One friend told me that it seems like her clothes do not last as long, as if the washing machine is hard on the clothes. I really wish I could take the machine back and purchase a different one.

Mother board stops working

9/4/2017

I have only had this washer for 2.5 years and it just stopped working. Had someone to come out and look at it and said it was the mother board. Of course nothing is under warranty and it cost .$362 to fix like really. Had my other washer for over 20 years. Very disappointed.

Donna 229 10/19/2016

Have had it for almost 2 weeks and very happy with it. Glad that you can fill it with the lid open. Only issue we had was the drain hose was on the opposite side of our old washer, the hose was not long enough and had a heck of a time finding one to reach the laundry sink.

Best washer for the price!

7/22/2016

I have been through many washers in my lifetime, this one can really handle the job. My husband and I work outdoors most of the year and we get very dirty, this washer makes my clothes the cleanest out of washers I have every had. I did not expect this since we did not spend a lot on this washer. We love the features that come with the washer, and it is super easy to use. Would never have bought any other product.

I bought this washer 20 months ago and it already broke. I called whirlpool and because it was over 12 months, they could not help me without a huge fee (half the price I paid for the washer 20 months ago). I trusted this brand but never again. I would never buy another whirlpool product again!

Excellent Resualts

6/12/2016

Now I can wash my garments with out worry. The extra rinse cycles are a must when washing heavily soil work cloths and the self cleaning cycle ensures me that I will have a clean wash load of whites.The dryer leaves my cloths wrinkle free cutting my ironing time in half.By far the best Washer & Dryer for me.

Junk!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bran from the O 4/5/2016

I bought this due to the reviews I had seen and the name. Whirlpool has always been a leading name in the business. However I have had this for just over a year and a half, and it dies. I am only one person I do maybe a load a week? So I pull out the book and take a look. I know what its not doing, and according to the book the parts that should be wrong. I tried to call their service canter ans they are the only company on this earth that does not have tech support. After talking to a local service center I have replace the main control board and the shifter assembly. Over $200.00 dollars in non returnable parts and I have the same exact problem. From what I have seen first hand and what I have read online their quality has gone by the wayside and I will never buy one of their products again.

3/22/2016

The gearbox is noisy while washing. When I brought this home to install there was already water in the pump, so I'm guessing some other person returned it when they bought it. It was marked down when I purchased it, but the dealer didn't tell me it might have been used.

Great Washer

Kschaefer 3/1/2016

I am a true and loyal Whirlpool gal. My whirlpool washer of tens years was dropped off a moving truck during our move which made us retire our unit. We went shopping and I was discouraged because all I could find was non agitator washing machines. Finally while shopping a nice sales man shows me whirlpool washer with agitator at a great price. I was sold.... agitator... whirlpool... I LOVE machine... cleans great, low noise during wash loads... leave clothes smelling fresh and is the best washer... I have to say whirlpool is the best brand for quality of a washing machine with low maintenance of the machine... manufacturer warranty plus and I purchased 5 year extended as I did with my last washer and maybe used once or twice in ten years owning my old machine... whirlpool stands by there product and the quality of unit is phenomenal as well as extended warranty option is outstanding.

Long time Whirlpool user unhappy with Model 4900

2/22/2016

After purchasing/using a Whirlpool 4900 washer a year ago, we were extremely unhappy with its ability to clean our wash. We removed the 4900 to our barn and purchased and are currently using the 4800 top loader(with agitator). We are happy with the 4800. Incidently, we have been loyal Whirlpool customers since the 1960s

Unpleasant noises. Being unable to interrupt cycles is costly. Does hold more than the old but very good previous washer. Doesn't fill with hot water but alternates between warm and hot when filling.

Great Capacity-Difficult to control

1/16/2016

This washer does what you want a washer to do. Has great capacity. I don't like the fact that you can not control when it needs to start or stop, once you select a cycle it runs by itself. The other thing I do not like is that when is filling if you forget to close the lid or to add it will just drain the content completely, instead of stoping or wait in pause, which ends up being a huge waste of water and detergent.

Quiet as a church mouse

1/5/2016

I bought this washer months ago but It's in my vacation home. This is why it's a late review. The first thing I noticed is how quiet it is. I converted a pantry to a wash area to avoid the cold garage and have no regrets. It's quiet and steady.
