Whirlpool Special Edition - LXR6232E
I have a heavy-duty extra-large capacity Whirlpool washing machine. This is the Special Edition with six cycles and a two speed motor, with the small and extra-large load size capacity's. It has four different wash cycles, a normal, permanent press, delicates and soak with two levels of load size. You can load in just a couple of garments to wash or fill the oversize drum with plenty of towels and sheets. You have options of warm, cold and hot during the washing and rinse cycles.
As a washer it has given me no trouble in the last eight or nine years I've owned it and it is still looks brand-new with that basic easy to clean baked on white enamel surface. I feel it runs very efficiently even through it is the old traditional style that you load from the top, which I still feel very comfortable with.
I believe my Whirlpool is a very nice standard washing machine that wasn't terribly expensive to buy, giving me very reliable service, while not coming with a lot of extra features I did not need. I'm sure there's some concern these days about how much more water is actually utilize in a top load as opposed to a front load washing machine.
I know a top load uses about twice as much water as a front load washing machine, but I just can't justify the cost difference to buy one of the front load washing machines that I have seen, with this one still working and water being as cheap of a resource as it is.
I feel very good about my Whirlpool extra-large capacity washing machine, knowing that it will probably last at least for another 10 years.
