Product Details

Adaptive Wash Technology with Active Bloom™ Wash Action
  • Our washers deliver better clean and better care. Keep clothes looking newer longer all thanks to Adaptive Wash technology with Active Bloom™ wash action. It works to thoroughly saturate clothes with water and detergent by using advanced wash actions. This helps clothes wash against one another for gentler fabric care. Plus, this feature senses each load type and then adapts water levels and wash actions, based on the type of load being washed.
Automatic Water Levels
  • Automatic water levels regulate the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency.
6.1 cu. ft. capacity I.E.C.
  • Put more in each load with enough room to wash a king-sized comforter, thanks to our 6.1 cu. ft. I.E.C. Cabrio® washer.
Presoak Option
  • Enjoy better cleaning with the Presoak option that lets you skip soaking outside of the washer. Extra time is added in the washer before the wash cycle, which starts automatically when the option is complete.
Oxi Dispense Option
  • The Oxi Dispense option distributes oxygenated additives at the right time for enhanced cleaning results. Plus, it's an eco-friendly alternative to bleach.
Steam Clean Option
  • Add the power of steam to this stain-fighting option. It penetrates fabrics using increased wash action, rinsing and heat for even more help in breaking down deep soils.
Deep Water Wash Cycle
  • Take on stains with the Deep Water Wash cycle. It adds more water to help break down stains and improves the ability to rinse away soils.
Direct Drive Motor
  • The Direct drive motor is what helps our transmission system handle larger-capacity loads. It uses fewer moving parts so there’s less wear and tear over time.
EasyView™ Frameless Glass Lid with Slow-Close Technology
  • Create a quiet close, every time. Our EasyView™ frameless glass lid features slow-close technology to shut quietly. The lid also provides a better view of what's being washed and is quiet for an overall premium experience.
On/Off End-of-Cycle Signal
  • You'll always know when your wash cycle is finished, thanks to the end-of-cycle signal. This helpful tone reminds you when it's time to transfer clean clothes from the washer to the dryer. You can also turn it off completely.
ColorLast™ Option
  • Give your most vibrant colors the care they need with our ColorLast™ option. It uses a precise combination of wash action, gentle temperatures and time to keep colors vibrant longer.
Clean Washer Cycle with affresh® Washer Cleaner
  • Deep-fill the washer to clean even those areas that aren't normally reached by everyday cycles. Add an affresh® Washer Cleaner tablet to the Clean Washer cycle for best results.
850-RPM Max Spin Speed
  • The Direct drive motor provides fast spin speeds of up to 850-RPM in the washer to remove moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.
Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the U.S.A.
  • These washers are built with American Pride and designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.
Active Spray Technology
  • Active Spray technology virtually eliminates the need to pretreat clothing. It works to saturate clothes with a mixture of detergent and water by spraying the load completely and evenly. It’s gentle on clothes while still providing improved cleaning performance that helps fight tough stains.
Precision Dispense
  • Precision Dispense provides optimal cleaning by releasing detergent at the right time. Plus, detergents and certain additives – like fabric softener and bleach – get mixed with water before they ever touch your clothes. The result is optimal fabric care and preservation for every load.
Low-Profile Impeller
  • Our low-profile impeller helps give clothes a thorough yet gentle clean. Its new design gives clothes more room to move, so they clean against one another. The seamless surface and unique vanes also help drive clothes from the outer rim to the center, where the deepest cleaning happens.
Estimated Time Remaining LED Display
  • Always have an eye on how much time is left during any cycle with our estimated time remaining LED display. Part of our updated digital console, it illuminates your selected cycles, options and available choices and lets you know when you can remove items from the washer.
Smooth Wave Stainless Steel Wash Basket
  • The Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket gently guides clothes and helps protect fabrics from fraying and snags.
Quiet Wash Ultra Noise Reduction System
  • The Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system helps keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas. Thanks to sound-absorbing material and a compact motor around the wash drum, you can install your washer virtually anywhere and know you won't be interrupted. People who like quiet will love this Whirlpool® washer.
Quick Wash Cycle
  • Our Quick Wash cycle can wash small loads in as little as 28 minutes. It uses increased spin speeds to remove more water so clothes can spend less time in the dryer, so you have more time to do what you love.
