Washer Highlights »
The washer's wash basket is made of stainless steel, reputed to be the best material for washer interiors these days. That's because this material does not damage laundry items which may be a danger for wash baskets of lower-end models that causes snagging with delicate fabrics. Moreover, stainless steel wash baskets do not rust and chip, so clothes do not get mysteriously stained while being cleaned.
The automatic dispensers for both fabric softener and bleach are an answered prayer for users who do not want to do guesswork or estimates in measuring how much of these implements they would put into their laundry. Moreover, doing it yourself can be a messy affair, with your fingers ending up smelling like bleach or fabric softener. With this feature, bleach and fabric softener in their right amounts are dispensed into the laundry without hassles at the appropriate moment.
All buttons and knobs are neatly lined in the control panel found on the top portion of the machine. It is equipped with an LED screen where you can view what's going on with the machine - time remaining, what cycle is operated, etc.
The washer looks very compact, so it does not present any problems with placement in tight spaces. Its Lunar Silver finish gives the washer an edgy yet still classic look.

The washer's Energy Star and CEE Tier III features make it very efficient when it comes to water and energy use - you may even qualify for rebates if your local utility company offers them. With 11 automatic cycles, there should be a cycle that can be used for whatever laundry items you may have. Its Care Control Temperature Management feature gives you just the right temperature to dissolve detergents, so there's no need to manually dip your hand inside the wash basket and dissolve clumps of detergent.
Moreover, water doesn't become too hot, so shrinking and bleeding of colors are avoided. The contours of the machine speak classic, but the Lunar Silver color gives the washer a modern look. This unit is the perfect option if you're looking for something practical and classic.
The features are not as extensive as other models of Whirlpool washers, so users expecting all the bells and whistles may be in for a bit of a letdown.
