My wife and I have been using the Whirlpool WTW5100VQ Washing Machine for the past 4 years and found it to be reliable and fairly quiet. With a depth of 25 1/2 inches, a height of 43 inches, and a width of 27 inches it fits into our apartment kitchen easily. This model has a 3.2 cubic foot white porcelain wash basket with 10 automatic cycles.  There are 3 selectable water temperatures and 2 wash/spin speed combinations. It has a dual action agitator, with normal cycle, casual cycle, and delicate cycle.  There is a Quiet Wash Noise Reduction System to keep the washing machine from being too loud. There is also a bleach dispenser.  Besides having all the features that we need, we like it best because it is fairly quiet and has little vibration even when the agitator is at high speed. We might have to turn the TV volume up a notch or two in the living room where our TV is less than 10 feet from the washing machine in our kitchen, but that is all. When you live in an apartment building upstairs as we do, you (and your downstairs neighbors) can really appreciate a washing machine that is fairly quiet with little vibration.

We have had our Whirlpool **3.2 cu. ft. Super Capacity Plus Top-Load Washer** for quite a few years. Being a mom with three kids,this washer is used a lot! I must use it atleast every other day. Our hook up is in the basement and it runs fairly quiet. If it weren't for the run off sink,I think I would forget I'm doing laundry. It is a pretty standard washer. No frills or special features. So if you are looking for something to wash special fabrics and lots of settings,this one is probably not for you.  If you are looking to save money,then this is priced under 300.00.

Great washer for a great price

By 

from USA

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

I have had this washer for approximately one year. I purchased it when I moved into my apartment. I have nothing, but good things to say about this washer. It was inexpensive, it provides quality cleaning, and is easy to use.

Energy Efficiency
I have not noticed a significant change in my electric bill due to running the washer.

Cleaning Time
This washer takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to do one extra large load of laundry with a double rinse. I do not think this is bad at all. I can get a load of laundry done in two hours if I stay on top of it.

Performance
I think this washer does an excellent job removing stains, keeping colors bright, and freshening the clothes. I have never had any issues with getting a stain out of my son's clothes, the colors stay turn on the clothes, and my clothes look, feel, and smell clean.

Ease of Use
This washer is very easy to use. It has a knob for the size of the load. It has a knob for rinse/extra rinse. It has a knob for cycle preference. I like the fact that you can double rinse your clothes after using fabric softener as my son as very sensitive skin and I want to make sure all of the detergent and fabric softener is removed before he wears the clothes.

Design
The design is simplistic which I really like. You have your knobs on the back and the top loader is easy to use. It is plain, but I like it.

Durability
I have had no issues with my washer in the year that I have owned it. i do approximately six loads a laundry per week so my washer gets a lot of use.

Stay away from this series

By 

from Marion, KS

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

If noise is an issue at your house, stay away from this Whirlpool series. I was appalled when running the first load at the noise level, so called the dealer. They said, oh, yes, that's a transmission issue so they replaced it. It did not help the noise at all. Others have said it's a little bit noisy, no, it's a LOT noisy.

When stating it's too noisy, I'm saying you have to talk louder or turn up the tv to hear in the next room. I purchased this one because of the claim of saving water, similar to a front loader.

I've had the machine about 6 months, and it still is so irritating. The warranty is almost non-existent, so I purchased an extended warranty. It will never, ever last as long as my Maytag.

Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Super Capacity Plus Top-Load Washer

from Schenectady, NY

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

**Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Super Capacity Plus Top-Load Washer works great. I just wanted to let you know that I love mine. I wouldn't take anything for it. Out of all the washing machines I have ever used, this one ranks at the top. It cleans all types of clothes, and the washing time isn't much compared to what I have been used to. I have no problems with it, and I have had it for a very long time. I love Whirlpool products, and I think they really do rank at the top of the list of best washing machines. In fact, the ones I have ever owned, NEVER had any repair records! They just "died," but only when they were like "fossils." LOL. This washing machine is super inexpensive, lasts forever, and hold a lot of clothes. I suppose I can nickname this one "fossil" so it can live up to its name. LOL**

Not the best washer, but ok.

By 

from Mcadoo, PA

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

We used to have this Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer, but have since upgraded to a much better machine. This machine was constantly rocking and shaking no matter how we tried to stablize it. The floor is comletely flat underneath, but the machine is really noisy and always shakes a lot. It seemed to move across the floor a few inches every time we used it. The washer does hold a large load, but still seems to use the same amount of water even if you do a small load. There are the normal machine settings and they all work fine. The buzzer for when washing is finished is really loud, so you will definitely be able to hear it anywhere in your home. Overall I would say skip this machine and go with a better model.

Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Super Capacity Plus Top-Load Washer

By 

from Shelby, NC

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

The Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Super Capacity Plus Top-Load Washer really works great and is highly recommended. It really deserves the five stars I just gave it and then some. We ahve ben very pleased and impressed with this purchase. Out of all the washing machines we have ever used or owned, this one works better. It *is *the best for us and probably the best for you. It is a bigger washer than most, and it is a quiet machine. We have had it for a long time so we really feel qualified to write this review about it. This machine performs really well, and Consumer Reports has rated it among the very best. We feel we made a fantastic purchase when we got this washing machine. We dread the day when it "dies," but we do expect it to last us for many, many more years because Whirlpool knows its stuff.

Never Disappointed!

By

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

Nothing says quality like a Whirlpool applicance and my new washer proved it again. I always trust the Whirpool label because it never lets me down. This new washer makes my clothes come out so clean and fresh. You can't beat it for heavy duty kind of laundry like work clothes plus the finest of my clothing.

Good Washer

By 

from Huntingtown, MD

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

This is an overall good washing machine. It is not to expensive which is part of the reason I bought this one since the front load washing machines are very expensive. It holds a lot of laundry which is a big improvement over my last washing machine. So far it has not had any problems but I've only had it for about two years. This Whirpool is very easy to use and there is nothing complicated about it. The appearance of the washing machine is fine but it really does not matter to me because I keep it in the basement where no one even sees it. Therefore the noise of the machine doesn't really affect me either but I do find it not that loud.

I give it four stars because it is a good washing machine for the price but it clearly isn't anything fancy.

Great Washer

By 

from Overland Park, KS

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

The whirlpool three-point-two cubic feet super capacity plus top-load washer is the washer to have in your laundry room!!! it has a very large capacity so you can stuff all of your week's worth of clothes in just one load!!! it is very inexpensive so it is affordable to any person, any budget... some of the stuff that i do not like about this washer, is that it is a little noisey when washing clothes, other than that i am really satisfied with it...if you were to ask me what i would rate this washer on a scale of one to ten, i would totally rate it a nine, all they way!!!! i would totally reccommend this whirlpool washer to all of my friends, all of my family members, and to all of my co-workers because, well, this is beyond good, it is a great product!!!

Greatest Washer Ever

By 

from Spring Valley, NY

Comments about Whirlpool Super Capacity Top Load Washer:

This appliance has been a great investment for our family. My parents bought it a couple years ago, and it still works wonders. I love the job it does when washing our clothes, and the cycle does not take hours to run. My clothes get so clean whenever I use it. Whenever I come home from college, the first thing I do when I come home is throw a load into the washer, and then within an hour later move it to the dryer. Clothes come out nice and clean, especially compared to the washers up at my college. Luckily, it does not eat socks or other smaller items :-D. It also has a high capacity, so I can put an entire weeks worth of jeans in the washer at one time and they all come out clean. With this washer I am able to wash up to 2 weeks worth of clothes in just two loads, when normally it would take me three or even four.

It was also a great value for the price. Make sure to look out for sales. I would recommend this washing machine to anyone in the market. It might not be as fancy as some of the newer front load washers, but sure it does do a great job for the price!
