Those direct drives are not stupid! They actually are worth buying. My
grandma has one. 15 years old. Works like new. You will be lucky to get 5
years out of that washer!

Author djnemesis82pluss1877 (7 days)
The motor in mine only goes one direction while agitating it's really
wonderful because it eventually gets the water circulating so fast it just
goes right over the tub lip and onto the floor. While also wrapping clothes
around the agitator Guessing that's a bad timer ?

Author Smorf Hound (1 month)
I WISH that the instructions would tell you that the whirr noise is
normal!! I thought mine was broken! Hear it as it agitates?? Whirr WHirr
Whirr Whirr .... like rubbing? Sheeesh!! I have a Roper. Stop scaring
us like that. I thought I had to take it back to the store!

Have you seen the new tub removal tool for Cabrio, Oasis and Bravos

Author Winston Elston (2 months)
I had one briefly. I actually put clothes in mine when it ran. The
freewheel pawls driving the screw on the dasher (let William F. Buckley
call it an agitator) slam so loudly that the next door neighbors asked what
I was hammering. Our houses are 20 feet apart and the windows were closed.
Hurlpoop's service company said they're all like that.
I'll never buy another washer like this one!

I just got the latest version of this washer. Thanks for the video, I was
wondering what was happening under the locked hood. so far I am really
loving the washer and I agree overall it is quiet....Now I have to take
that thing off the lid like you did so I can watch it wash for myself!!!!!
I hope that won't eventually casue a problem if I do that.

Has this washer gotten off balance before?

Author inmylife10465 (4 months)
Thank you for the info: Question = Is it normal for the noise that it makes
when lightly spinning?I notice ,the larger the wash,the louder it
sounds.Sounds a little like a combination of a duck and a't
know how else to describe it,but i would think it should be much more quiet
than my old 1992 whirlpool.
Answers anyone?
Thank you.

all the way to the top, as it should be. very easy! i have done it mysel!

@MrFlyguy124 No, actually there is no transmission as the motor does all
the agitation by moving in both directions when it agitates.

Author jmc6000 (2 years)

Author Sharkie626 (3 years)
@jmc6000 I cant give a reason for the water pumps, but I can see why some
people have their coupling or transmission go early. On some of the vids
here, I have seen people overload the washer so bad that the clothes don't
even move, that will indeed put much stress on parts and cause clothing
damage. Did this washer replace your GE?

@jmc6000 Is the drum freewheeling or being turned by the motor?

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@RobGwisdala This is not the exact same as the South American made
Brastemp/Whirlpool washer. I will admit that the design is very simular but
there are some differences as well. Most of the "world" washers are small
and do not even come close the the 3.5 size the washer has, plus this
washer does not have the cumbersome drum brake and engagment system that
the smaller South American designed, "world", washers have.

Why are they not making direct drive anymore? My parents have a set of
direct drive Whirpools that have been going for almost 20 years. How does a
belt drive help it clean better relative to the direct drive counterparts?
My whicky poo meter is goigng off. I'll keep my direct drives thank you.

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@Skreem2 Well at the time of the video the washer was infact having full
incoming water pressure to it, but it is indeed restricted once it enters
the drum.

@JSneaker Acually the ratcheting top is very effective on this model and
you either have a choice of the shower rinse or if you select the fabric
sofner then you get a full basket rinse

Author dualactionsurgilator (3 years)
Very interesting. The action looks like it is using the Fisher and Paykel
drive system that the Cabrio uses. Are they the same?

@jmc6000 I had live to have DDs. I had an old Whirlpool 1990's over 10
years old, and then our Kenmore 500 4 years old from 2008, and still
working great.

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@JSneaker It sure does!!

Author Sharkie626 (3 years)
@jmc6000 did they by any chance own one of the lower 1-speed models? We do
have some delicate clothing, but thankfully our machine is 3 speed (you can
see it in my vids) and has appropriate agitation for delicate items.

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@JSneaker Hummm? You I have been in both washer inside and out and I really
see the belt drives being just as reliable if not MORE reliable than the
old direct drives. Plus these washer do offer a conventional wash and rinse
and just beacuse you chose the fabric softener option on the control panel
does not mean you have to use it in the washer.

Author Bill Slater (3 years)
Watching this video, I get the feeling Whirlpool is using the Fisher &
Paykell system. It agitates and sounds just like the Fisher & Paykell top
load machines.

Author liz boz (3 years)
@jmc6000 Have you had direct drives (DDs) before?

@themaytagrepairman I did some digging and found out Whirlpool is buying
the drive system from Fisher & Paykel. The same way they are buying the
drive systems for the Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore ht series, and the KitchenAid
front loaders from Bosh.

Why do Whirlpool let direct-driven washer die? Because they're too noisy???
I have an Amana washer that is a direct-driven and the loudness don't
bother me anymore.

Author jeffhanson1 (1 year)
The Amana, Admiral, Roper top load agitator models are all made my
Whirlpool now and look the same in many ways. The only difference is on the
Roper, Whirpool decided to put a 1-piece old fashioned-style agitator on
it. That's not necessarily a bad thing (less moving agitator parts in
exchange for less clothing movement).
