very low water level. cannot load too much clothes or else they wont be
cleaned. epa regulation on low water level! very bull shit. there are
videos on YT, which show you how to adjust the water level, to be filled up
all the way to the top, as it should be. very easy! i have done it mysel!
now, i can load more clothes. clothes come out cleaner with full water. i
can hear the washer now runs much much much smoother with full water, less
stress on the motor!

@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

@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.

yes this does have a transmission & yes it does have and can leak oil

@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

Whirlpool should bring back the direct drive system.

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 (2 years)
@jmc6000 Have you had direct drives (DDs) before?

Author Organgrinder1010 (2 years)

Author jmc6000 (10 months)

@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.

Author nova9403 (1 year)
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 (11 months)
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).

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@MustangFanNC Thanks for the info!! So I guess all during the 80s Whrilpool
was going from the belt drive models to the direct drives untill full
conversion happened around 85-87. Good to know. I did know that they were
all direct drives by 1990 but was unsure when the last belt drives were
being offered to the consumers.

Author Randy Dorion (1 year)
I have whirlpool dual action direct drive washer,i have had this machine
from 1991 and only last year i had to have the dogit's replaced on the
agitator.Belt drive loses it strenght as the belt wears down ,direct drive
is more powerful without the need of useless belt's.Direct drive is the
only way to go as far as a good washer that cleans and spin's without
losing it's power.

Author Ed Weldon (2 years)
the water comes out so weak. That is a huge problem.

Author Marshall Hale (10 months)
Well, the direct drives were better.

Author jmc6000 (3 years)
@tmmaston Yes the 89 and below washers that were belt drive, the motor only
spins in one direction and the transmission did the agitation work. Where
as in the new belt drive Whirlpool washers there is no transmission and the
motor is connected directly to the agitator via a belt and the motor
changes directions at will.

Author madlyderanged (3 years)
Not bad, but a bit tooooooo gentle for my clothing.

Author dudrovetto (3 years)
I would like to see full cycle with full load.. thanks

Author SirtubalotTX (2 years)
Thanks for the points but if a company changes over to something because
it's less costly to design and produce.. and throw reliability out the
window in the process.... that's definitely for profits. As far as front
loaders being too big for some laundry rooms? Front loaders for the home
are no wider than their top loading counterparts. Now, as far as depth?
Sure.. you have the door opening in the front but that's about it.

Author Vinh Dinh (3 years)
Where's your GE?????????????????
Pleasssssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee reply.

Author madlyderanged (3 years)
If you want gentle wash action, you set the machine to 'GENTLE' or
'DELICATE'. It is indeed a shame to have a machine that can only do a
gentle swish. What happens when you do need a much more vigorous wash

Author lexmarks567 (2 years)
Get rid of the direct drives. They all have flawed transmissions in that
they always seam at random to go into spin while doing a neutral drain.
They may be the easiest to replace the transmission on vs belt drive but I
think belts are better
