Laundry pairs to take on the mess

We get it. Your ideal family day doesn’t take place in the laundry room. But the clothes just keep piling up anyway. With Whirlpool® top load washers and dryers that offer plenty of capacity to wash more in a single load, you can stay on top of the rapidly filling hamper — and give every fabric customized cleaning. We'll help keep laundry day on track, so you can spend more time making messes instead of cleaning them up.

Washers

Pretreat stains before they set

Now you can pre-wash clothes, like post-game soccer jerseys and those pants that took a PB&J smear, right in the washer. The built-in water faucet’s instant water stream lets you remove loose soils with less hassle and pretreat stains before they set in. 

 

Take the guesswork out of washing machine water usage

The whole family’s laundry, from your distressed jeans to the kids’ beloved blankies, will get improved cleaning and gentler care without extra work for you, thanks to Adaptive Wash technology and Active Bloom™ wash action.With a washing machine water level sensor that adapts water usage and wash action based on each load, you don't have to give washing machine water usage a second thought, and you'll get extra help keeping clothes from fading.

Dryers

Help prevent overdrying

At some point, everyone’s made the mistake of overdrying their clothes — and shrinking their favorite dress to the size of a t-shirt. That’s where we come in. Advanced Moisture Sensing adapts cycle times to end right when clothes are dry. Three built-in sensors track each load’s moisture and temperature levels to adapt drying times, so you’re not left waiting around. Or making multiple trips to the laundry room. Or trying to squeeze into a too-little black dress.
