I purchased a Estates by Whirlpool Washer approximately 9 years ago. It is a Heavy duty, super capacity washer that has given me terrific satisfaction over the past 9 years. The capacity of the tub holds more washables than the average washer. It has 5 Load sizes from Extra-Small to Super. Also, it has 4 Temperature Settings and has a End of Cycle signal that I don't use because it is extremely loud. I'm thankful for the Hand Washable Cycle that this washer have, one of the main reasons for my purchase of this model washer. This Heavy Duty, Super Capacity, 10-cycle, 5 speed washer does a great job at cleaning my laundry and I would recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a new washer, especially people with large families that has bundles of laundry to keep clean. This model washer was inexpensive and I got it at a great price that was very affordable. Energy Efficiency It is a Energy Efficiency Washer. Cleaning Time The average cycle time is about 20 minutes, which is good time for me. Performance It cleans, exceptionally, well. Ease of Use Anyone should be able to operate this model washer. Design It has the typical Top Load features with the Load sizes, Settings, etc. visible. Durability It has lasted 9+ years.
