So far so good. We love the washer. It has worked great since we purchased it. Wish we could say the same for the dryer.

We've owned this washer for 6 1/2 years. We use it regularly for a family of 3. At the 2 1/2 year mark we had a leak that needed to be repaired. The repairman said there was a lot of rust as a result of the leak. Now at the 6 1/2 year mark we are having the same leak repaired again. The repairman said there is even more rust and we would be better off replacing the washer. I've owned several brands over the years and have never once replaced a washer due to poor performance. Whirlpool was the first...and this is the last one I will purchase.

Love it ... just not sure I like HE washers

Pros: the amount of cloths I can wash in one load is amazing. Numerous settings for every washing option. Quiet machine, easy to use. I can't seem to adjust to the HE way of washing. This is my first HE washing machine and I can't get used to the minimal water useage. Had the machine for about a month. It's hard to tell if I'm using enough soap since I never see suds. How are the clothes getting washed?! I wash all loads on the deep water setting, and still the clothes are not submerged (or at least not that I've witnessed). I think clothes are getting cleaned because stains are gone when the wash is done.
