This was the first brand new clothes washer I have ever bought. I did a bit of research online and talked with the employee at the store and while this is clearly a entry-level washing machine, it is made by Whirlpool and works well.

I wash at least 1 load of laundry a day and have owned this unit for 8 months. It gets HEAVY use and I haven't had a single problem yet. 

I like that the washer is not super fancy. I am not a super fancy kind of person. All I really want is clean clothes and if that is what you are looking for and you are on a budget, this is the washer for you. 

It has 7 different washing settings. And for me, these are enough! I cannot imagine a washing machine with more settings...why would you need that? In fact, I probably only use 3 of the settings.

It also has 2 temperature settings (hot, cold), which works for me since I only wash on cold (for environmental reasons). Maybe this might be a con for some people who like more settings. 

If you are looking for a machine that is easy to use, stays clean, and works well with heavy use, this is a great starter machine. I am hoping to get many more years of use from this machine.

I have had this washer less than a year and I've had it serviced every couple of months. I think everything that can be replaced on this washer has been. It is an absolute nightmare! We have to wait for a week before someone comes out to fix it, leading us to head to the laundromat. I can't go more than a month without this thing breaking down now! I have lost several pairs of pants from them getting stuck under the agitator as well! If I could give this less than a star I would!! HORRIBLE PIECE OF MACHINERY!

I really like this machine

Comments about Roper Top Load Washer:

I purchased this washer as an emergency replacement and frankly didn't expect it to perform as well as it does, or to last very long, so its great performance over more years than I expected has been a pleasant surprise. It cleans very well for a simple model with a fairly inexpensive price tag.

There are no frills on this washer, it has very basic settings, yet functions quite well for a bare bones model. I've washed everything from delicate silks to heavily mud encrusted rugs, and have never had a problem with damaging the textiles or getting anything to come clean. It's especially good for removing pet hair, and the tub itself wipes clean easily.

It does seem to unbalance more easily with heavy loads or larger single items than some of the more expensive washers I've owned, which is just a matter of redistributing the load and isn't a major problem. There is a minor design flaw with the rim of the tub peeling that's mostly esthetic and doesn't affect the performance.

For the money, I really think this is a great washer.

Very good hardworking washing machine

Comments about Roper Top Load Washer:

When we had a Roper washing machine it was a very dependable and hard working product. The only reason we don't have it now is because we had to sell our house and we decided to leave the washer and dryer there. We had it for 12 years when we moved and never had any problems with it. Hopefully the people that have the house still have it. It really served the purpose for us and cleaned the clothes very well and we did large loads of clothes.

Energy Efficiency
It was very energy efficient and we used it almost everyday.

Cleaning Time
The cleaning time was reasonable and the water use was fine. We did many loads of laundry.

Performance
The performance was fine. It worked great and we were very happy with it.

Ease of Use
It was very easy to use,just set it and go about your other household work.

Design
The design was good,it was average and not fancy which suited me just fine.

Durability
It was a very durable and hard working washing machine. It would work well for any family.

Reliable washer!

By 

from Provo, UT

Comments about Roper Top Load Washer:

This washer is fabulous! I am partial towards the traditional washers though, because I think they get my clothes cleaner and I don't have as much of a hard time with needing to repair them. It is louder, but the agitator gets my clothes cleaner, and it doesn't rock back and forth. This is a great washer!

Energy Efficiency
It is not top of the line in energy efficiency, but is cleaned quickly.

Cleaning Time
An extra large load typically takes about 20 minutes, which is super fast.

Performance
This cleans the clothes very well.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use, only two dials to use.

Design
This is the typical top loading washer, and has the agitator.

Durability
Very durable, we have had no problems, and it seems very heavy duty.

Roper Top Load Washers are a great, basic washing machine

By 

from Spanish Fork, UT

See all my reviews

Comments about Roper Top Load Washer:

I love my Roper Top Load Washer. I've had it for over 5 years now and it has help up perfectly. I have not had anything break or malfunction. It cleans my clothes really well and stays smelling fresh with minimal maintenance. It is easy to keep clean. It doesn't have a very large capacity, so smaller loads work best.

Energy Efficiency
I don't know enough about Energy Efficiency to say a lot about this, but it washes clothes quickly, so I imagine it's doing an alright job in this area.

Cleaning Time
Loads are done in a small amount of time.

Performance
This washing machine does a great job and effectively cleaning clothing.

Ease of Use
This machine is very easy to use and understanding how to use each cycle is easy, as well.

Design
This is a very basic machine. There is nothing especially great about the way it looks, but it doesn't look awful, either. It's a very classic design.

Durability
I have had this machine for over five years and haven't had any issues with it. Nothing has broken or malfunctioned.

Running at least a load a day for 15 years with no problems

By 

from Grant, MI

Comments about Roper Top Load Washer:

This Roper Washer, is in my opinion the top of the line in regular, top load washing machines. I have used it every day for 15 years now with absolutly no problem.

Have replaced all the hoses once, and probably about time again.

It does a fair sized load and washes everything, from dirty work clothes to delicate permanant press item with equal ease and excellent results.

All told, I would buy it again, though it was a bit pricier than I wanted to pay at the initial purchase, it has paid for itself many times over in reliability , over the years.

Highly recommended!
