Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Whirlpool 3.4 cu ft Top-Load Washer (White) (Model: WTW4800XQ). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.90 stars, and the price range is $425-$600.

Whirlpool WTW4800XQ is a traditional Top-Load Washer with 3.4 cu. ft. White porcelain wash basket and Xtra Roll Action Plus agitator. This agitator brings the laundry to the bottom of the wash basket where cleaning takes place and can effectively roll over and clean twice the average load size. The clothes get cleaned very well while conserving water. Users like this washer as it lets them soak the laundry before washing.

This washer is simple and easy to use with convenient features and 8 wash cycles. 700 RPM spin cycle works very well and takes most of the water out of the laundry thus saving on drying time. Whirlpool WTW4800XQ is well priced and provides good value for the money. It also has a Quiet Spin technology which offers a unique suspension system that senses and adapts to each load, making upper-floor installation possible.

Some users do not like this machine because of long wash cycle and some noise during wash and spin cycles. A few buyers were unhappy with Whirlpool's repair and replacement service. Whirlpool always tried to sell them extended warranty instead of fixing the machine. In some cases, the machine broke down in very short period.

Overall, Whirlpool WTW4800XQ is a good quality, traditional agitator style, washer with basic and convenient features for doing a load of laundry in the most simple and easy way. It is reasonably priced while proving good value and quality.

Works best with these Whirlpool dryers:

Traditional Electric Dryer with AutoDry system - Model# WED4800XQ

Traditional Gas Dryer with AutoDry system - Model# WGD4800XQ

This model is similar to older Whirlpool brand Model# WTW5100VQ
