Comment:
Normal usage of the washer but have found the control panel to be less than reliable. Whirlpool customer service is not helpful constantly stating my washer is beyond 1 year warranty. I have scanned and sent them receipt yet the still insist that their records are correct.<br />I would say to stay away from Whirlpool products as it seems evident that these once 'durable good' items are designed to break down and customer service is avoiding all evidence of purchase date and warranty obligation.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I chose to buy this model when my old Whirlpool Duet (GHW915W), purchased in 2006, had the F11 code and the repairman said it would cost $800 to repair. After reading many reviews this model seemed like a great choice. But, after using this new machine, I wish I had paid the $800 to have the old one fixed. Just some info that you might want to know about this machine. It did put a hole in jeans. I now wash our favorite jeans in a zippered bag and I don't fill the washer up with clothes. Instead, I wash several smaller loads and don't use the fastest drying speed for our clothes as suggested on other reviews. The washing cycles are longer,the controls are very touch sensitive and you cannot turn off the end-of-cycle tone. On a positive note, this model did fit on the pedestal drawer (WHP1500SQ) from my old machine. Hope this helps!

The first washer failed its hook up trail run. The one they (Best Buy) replaced it with now is locked up and not working. Called the 24/7 Best Buy repair service to be told they are closed??? Very Very unhappy with the product. If you want to risk getting one I would get the full service warranty, you will need it!!!
