Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Awesome Machine but by the warranty

JAY B 3/7/2017

Gets clothes very clean-love the options/settings for different loads and types of clothes. A little worried about the control panel as 3 days into ownership the panel turned on as commanded but then went off before I could get any settings in or get the washer started. This happened 6 times and then it started working great again with no more problems yet (I am only a couple weeks into ownership). A little worried about this but I can't say enough about how quiet it is and how clean all my clothes are getting. THIS INCLUDES MY KING SIZE COMFORTORS!!!

Leaner and meaner!

YogaLady 2/21/2017

Our new Whirlpool washer is much leaner and compact fitting nicely under the cabinets in the laundry room even with the drawer underneath. I love the push button technology allowing for changes in water temp and spin cycle. I have also noticed that it runs much more quietly than our old front loader.

The clothes get really clean in the quick wash cycle. The washer is really loud during the draining and filling cycle. Loader than my 2003 Maytag front loader. I do love this washer, just close the door or put it in a cellar. Handles bulky comforters for a California king size bed beautifully.

very effective at washing

Dan 2/9/2017

Compared to my old laundry center, this washer washes clothes much better. I used to have some soap residue on dark clothes with the old washer and I kept changing laundry soaps with no effect. But with this washer, even in the colorfast cycle, I do not have that problem. I do change the water temperature to cool instead of cold for that cycle. It's a bit loud when on the spinning cycle, sounds like a plane turbine (not that loud though). Overall and so far, I am happy with the purchase. The delivery, on the other hand, was horrendous. By the 3rd time I accepted the dryer anyway, although it had a substantial dent on it.

Whirlpool man 1/5/2017

I bought a month ago. Happy with it power button is sensitive. Just turn it on and start it and don't mess with it and have no problem. Otherwise it will drain and you will have to restart. Normal setting noise level is average. Did a towel setting seemed noisier than normal. All in all nice machine do like the tinted glass.

Ralph 1/4/2017

I bought the WFW85HEFW washer to replace an older WFW model. Replacement cost was the bottom line decision with model features being secondary factors. With this unit I have noticed that the tub spin balance mechanism has improved; the soft touch buttons are a nice feature however, if leaning over the machine to reach an overhead cabinet your body may touch the buttons, and they will let you know this with several tones. The unit does have noisy pump during both water fill and drain cycles however, the noise is tolerable since this unit is housed in a dedicated utility room.
