How does this washer stand out? »
This is the cheapest model Whirlpool offers. Although paying 50 dollars more for the energy star qualified version will actually save you money over the long run.
In 5 years of normal use the WTW4800XQ will use $250 dollars of electricity with an electric water heater. However the WTW4850XQ in 5 years will only use $75 dollars, which means a saving of $175 dollars. That is why we recommend upgrading to the energy star equivalent, the WTW4850XQ
