How does this washer stand out? »
If you want the allergen cycle you’ll have to upgrade to the 8800, but apart from that there’s not much missing from this machine compared to Whirlpool’s Top Load flagship. An upgrade to the top model (8800), will get you three more cycles, 1 more temperature setting, the sanitary cycle and LED basket light. Unless you want the Sanitary and allergen cycle, this washer means business.
