Consumer review (

Very disappointed


After 18-months our machine has rust (rust how can a washing machine rust!!) at its base. The door lock light is now flashing and the machine won't wash because of it. I just read a review with a similar problem, and the reviewer was quoted $600 to fix...

Delay function

Rust appeared at the base within 6 months. After 18-months it looks like the repair required to fix a fault will cost more than the machine

Buyer be ware.


I bought this machine several years ago. I have a large family & wash every day. It has on numerous occasions shredded & chewed our clothes. It has been alot of little things that have gone wrong after the warranty is over. I bought it for the water &...

Lots of little things...


Having a 'large' family, with multiple kids in nappies, I wash a _lot_. My minimum is 7 washes a week—although, it's often more than that. We spent a lot of time researching which machine to get... now I'd argue for an older machine so that there could...

Spins really well. Being a front loader it's fairly water efficient, and the (small) kids can help with the loading/unloading.

The time shown is purely relative. The 30 minute cycle does take significantly less time than a 2 hour cycle, but it is _nothing_ like 30 minutes. I have hung around for 10 minutes because it has been showing 1 minute remaining... and ended up leaving...

I've had this washing machine for about 4 1/4 years now its performed reasonably and has done a decent job for the most part, however its not with outs its problems its reasonably noisy - make sure its shut behind a door! the rubber seal around the...

good high spin speed, clothes come out reasonably dry.

leaks water at times, long wash cycles, even the quick "30"minute wash usually takes about 40 mins! its noisy

We were happy with this machine till it stoped. It washes well spin cycle on high is excellent. It has handled 2 or 3 washes a day sometimes more since purchase as we are a large family. Hoping it will be repaired correctly this time. Have never had a...

Easy to use washes well even with full loads. Good on water saving on all programs.

Dissapointed with rust on front panel near soap door. After 3 years and 11 months, door would not close and program stoped part way through and then had to turn off and wait till door could be opened and finish by hand. Repaired under warrenty, but...

This is a good machine and I have recommended it, and it's later models to many, and all are very happy. I also have the dryer AWZ3413 in the same range which sits on top, and it's the best dryer I have evr had.

Washes well, doesn't use anywhere near as much water or power as a top loader and has never had any problems in over 4 years of use for 2 people. I have regularly check, and clean the filter when necessary. It still works as good as the first time I...

Can't think of any. If this, like any machine is well maintained there should be no problems.

Would not recommend this, absolute waste of money. First started not spinning like usual. Then opened door and smoke came out. I was told it is not made to do more than one load a day or the bearing goes. Apparantly this machine does not have a good...

the look of it

Did not wash properly, when spun sounded like an plane was landing, and left soap in clothes.

Do not buy this machine as does not provide good service life. I have seen other better washers then this one especially lg, at least they have back up service. This machine has broken down twice in 3 years from the time i have purchased it. Poor...

Very many options for washing

Not quite wash ...too noisy. Fault errors after 6 months, later being serviced & replaced part by techinian and same errors come back after 2 years. Socks get stuck in the door way. Very hard to close the door and gets locked when fault errors occur....

Absolute crap - I hate this machine. I had trouble thinking of even one 'pro'. I'd never buy another Whirpool product - poor quality whitegoods and very poor service. Don't buy it.

Lots of different cycle options

Door has to be slammed really really hard to lock (so many times I've put on a load, only to come back 2 hours later to find the washing hasn't even started - REALLY annoying. Less than a year old, machine flooded 4 times, service took a week to 10...
